Caythorpe CC

Chesterfield CC



Cricket, it's like buses. You get nothing for 5 weeks, then 2 games in 2 days. We're back at the Costa Del Caythorpe for a Derbyshire Premier Cup, Last 16 tie. Despite being a Nottinghamshire club, we somehow play in a Derbyshire competition.

Winner of this tie gets a Quarter Final trip to Lullington Park.

Right, toss has been made. Chesterfield winning it, and opting to bowl first.

But, in more important news....the hog roast has arrived, and is setting up on the boundary. It's a beautiful day.....come on down if you're not already here.

And we're underway, Martyn Dobson taking strike, Mat Dowman his opening partner. Matt Higginbotham the bowler.

9 from the opening over as Dowman finds point to his liking. Michael Deane takes the new ball from the Old Volunteer End

Dobson turn for a boundary, tucking one off his pads to fine leg

16/0 off 3 as the batsmen exchange singles...

19/0 off 4 - another quiet over, Dobson driving past the bowler for 2 the highlight.

26/0 (5) - Lovely late cut from Dobson through the vacant third man area, adds another 4 to the total
