2s win 2nd on the bounce

Division Four
Aston Manor 2nd XI 238-7
Water Orton 2nd XI 110 all out

Manor recorded their second successive win, this time against bottom of the table Water Orton, to ease their relegation concerns.

This was a thoroughly comprehensive and deserved victory and hopefully will act as a springboard to a comfortable mid table finish. That would represent a satisfactory season after losing so many players over the winter.

James Bemand (86) was the latest player to make the most of his opportunity with a very fine and controlled innings. Another good clubman, Bemand was the cornerstone of Manor’s excellent total of 238-7.

The visitors were equally relentless with the ball as Steve Knowles (4-27) ripped the heart out of the hosts batting. It was a day for the brothers union in the 2nd XI as well as the Turner’s, Trent and Avon, both grabbed a couple of wickets each in this impressive performance.
