Played at Colston Bassett CC, Washpit Lane, Colston Bassett, NG12 3FE

Match Report

: An early breakthrough signalled a false dawn of what was to come as Colston Bassett, through openers Ben Shaw (102 rtd) and Andy Finch (45), put 140 on the board in the first 25 overs. Taking the pace off the ball brought the score back into some sort of control but then a late flurry saw the hosts post a total of 236-7. EM failed to get going in response with six of the first seven batsmen failing to reach double figures with bowlers Spong and Jennings making the most of the uneven bounce. Richard Henson (74) and Cliff Adwick (52) adapted better than the others to bring an air of respectability to the scorecard and at times a glimmer of hope in winning the match. Sadly it was a target too far as the last pair were at the wicket with the score at 191-9.
