Disappointing loss

Alnmouth & Lesbury (186-6) v Mitford (104) Alnwick and District League

A POOR batting display meant Mitford were defeated by a side below them in the table.

The hosts were in trouble when Elder and Elliot were dismissed by Yogen Jagatsinh and David Wigham respectively – both batsmen were caught by Michael Briggs.

But they recovered well, largely thanks to Dilnot (69). There were also decent knocks from Smith (39) and Roberts (21 not out).

Wigham took a further three scalps and Craig Mole took a wicket as Alnmouth & Lesbury finished their 45 overs on 186 for six.

In reply, the away side started reasonably well, although Wigham (23), Scott Lawson (21) and Jagatsinh (14) were dismissed before they could go on to make a big score.

A collapse followed and Mitford were all out for just 104.
