Match Report

 

On a glorious afternoon at Dale Field, Lincs Gents won the toss and elected to bat. The Forty Club made an early break-through when debutant Ben Sheppard took the first two wickets within six overs. Tight bowling and good fielding meant that wickets continued to fall until 40 overs were bowled with the Gents 8 down for 164 following good innings’ from Tim Shaw (46), Tom Anderson (42) and Andrew Scoley (32). East Midlands made a quick response in losing just two wickets before Paul Shepherd (59*) and Ben Sheppard (50*) saw XL home to victory in just under 25 overs.
