Wins for the 1s, 2s and 4s got our weekend off to an excellent start.


A first Sileby fifty from overseas player Andries Gous and another half century from Liam Kinch helped the Firsts bounce back from back to back defeats as they racked up 263 for 8 from their 50 overs before bowling out Leicester Ivanhoe for 173.

The Seconds recovered from a horror batting collapse to beat Ibstock Town by 30 runs. Joe Charity top scored with 74 as the home side made 177 all out, having been 129 for 1 at one stage. The wickets were spread around with Charity taking 3-14 and Neil Pullen 3-29.

The Thirds couldn't make it four from four as they lost by three wickets against Electricity Sports with the visitors hauling in Sileby's 159 all out with over six overs and three men in the hutch.

Finally, a maiden century from Jake Bowley, notching 113 not out from 76 balls, helped the Fours to their first win of the season as they rattled up 236 for 4 with Andrew Preston also making 68. Thomas Blay (3-32) and Nathan Preston (3-51) helped restrict Whetstone to 196 for 9.
