2nds slump to defeat

2nd XI
Birmingham League Division Two (North)
C & R Hawkins 166 all out
Aston Manor 140 all out

Manor slumped to a disappointing defeat with a poor display on a difficult pitch at Cannock & Rugeley. Steve Knowles (15-8-16-2) certainly put in a Captain’s performance with the ball and with Trent Turner (2-19) also impressing the visitors would have been pleased to bowl their opponents out for 160.

Sadly Manor’s batting lacked application and discipline in the face of some fine bowling from Aslam Patel (5-37). Far too many batsmen gave their wickets away with rash stokes as the visitors were dismissed in the penultimate over 26 runs short of the required total. Austen Imber (37), James Beaman (26), Adam Nevitt (19) and Mark Christian (19) were the main contributors, but their efforts were sadly in vain.
