Weekley & Warkton 1st XI
Sat 25th June
It became back-to-back defeats for the first team as they lost by six wickets at Peterborough 2nd. With over 20 players unavailable, the sides were never going to be at their strongest but there was a battling performance at Bretton Gate.
Having slumped to 88-6, they recovered to post 183 all out with only one ball of the innings left. Devon Singh-Parhar top scored with 68 but contributions of 30 from skipper George Chudley, 20 by Greg Reis on his Isham first-team debut and Damien Conyard's 13 helped boost the total. It was not enough, though.
Reis collected figures of 10-1-34-2 but Peterborough lost just four men in knocking off the required runs.
The seconds fared no better. They slumped to a four-wicket loss at home to Thrapston 2nd - although it could have been worse.
Dismissed for only 92 - Ben Reid (27), Martyn Hicks (18) and Ethan Kerr (12no) the three to make double figures - they were then looking at 39-0 in the reply.
However, Thrapston lost six wickets for just six runs to turn the game on its head. Shaun Wills (13-4-17-4) was the main tormentor.It was not be, though, as a rapid 36 not out from Tom NcNally saw Thrapston home with four wickets in hand.
This weekend the firsts entertain league leaders Old Northamptonians 2nd, the second head to Cogenhoe and the Zingari are back in action at Old 3rd.
