Report: Game abandonment impacts Division One of NLL
There was an abandonment in Division One of the North Lindsey League as the latest round of fixtures took place at the weekend.
MICK WALKER NLL DIVISION ONE
Alkborough’s good form looked set to continue when they appeared set to beat Appleby Frodingham only for the game to be abandoned with Frod still 78 runs shy of the home team’s target and with only two wickets remaining.
Alkborough scored 192 for nine, with 45 not out from Sam Brown, 36 from Will Standerline and 30 from Matty Brown. Simon Taylor took two for 23 before Frod had reached 114 for eight when the game was halted. Alex Grimes made 31 and Mohammed Rahman 23, with Lee Ridley and Standerline having picked up two wickets each.
MICK WALKER NLL DIVISION TWO
Scunthorpe Town 4ths stretched their lead at the top of Division Two when comfortably beating Normanby Park for the second week in a row after posting a big total of 258 for four. That was largely thanks to 86 from Matt Pashley and 69 from Callum Mann.
They then dismissed Normanby for 111, as Isaac O’Neil offered the most resistance with 44, as Harry Crampton and Jack Murray claimed three wickets apiece.
The other Division Two fixture saw Haxey beat Broughton by seven wickets after bowling them out for 124, with Brett Fish hitting 65 before a half-century from Scott Ewen helped the Isle side to 125 for three.
