Bad weather affects cricket across Newark and Sherwood
Bad weather put a stop to several cricket matches across the Advertiser area at the weekend.
The Notts Premier League Division Two fixture between Balderton and Cavaliers and Carrington was abandoned with Balderton on 96.
In South Notts League Division C, Southwell versus West Bridgfordians was also abandoned.
The Collingham against Welbeck game, also in the Notts Premier League Division Two, played on in the poor weather with a revised target but ended with a five-wicket defeat for the home side.
Collingham started off with the bat, Welbeck strategically putting them in after winning the toss.
Liam Tew was the stand-out performer for Collingham, surpassing his half century and ending the innings on 52 not out.
Ben Jones scored 31 before being caught and bowled by Tade Carmichael, as the 14-year-old batsman continued his decent season for the club.
Burhan Alam and captain Oliver Dyson were the next best with the bat scoring 21 and 22 respectively, the captain getting his 22 off only 24 balls.
In response, Welbeck took only 19 overs to hit their revised target, which was set at 99 runs within 23 overs.
Collingham did well to take five wickets in this time and were rather unlucky due to the bad weather.
Supun Madusanka, the Sri Lankan recent addition to the Collingham bowling attack, had the best results for his team with two for 17.
Southwell and West Bridgfordians shared the points after play was abandoned.
Southwell managed 113 runs, Jonathan Butler contributing 41 and Dan Stokes 39 before being stumped.
West Bridgfordians were on 23 for two — with a run-out and caught and bowled by Will Ashworth — when play was abandoned.
Fellow Division C Newark R and M match against Flintham was cancelled.
