Collingham Cricket Club round-up

Collingham stretched their lead at the top of the Nottinghamshire Premier League Division Two table with a vital victory on Saturday.

They now hold a 24-point advantage at the helm after a four-wicket away win at Caythorpe who had started the day in second spot.

It was a ninth successive league win for Burhan Alam's side who maintained their unbeaten record in what was potentially a tough fixture.

The hosts had elected to bat first after winning the toss but had been bowled out inside 37 overs for 138.

Max Shenton spearheaded the Collingham attack with 4-42 from his 7.2 overs while Umer Waheed was economical with 3-20 from a 10-over stint.

Collingham lost a few early wickets in their reply as they slipped to 48-3 until their partnerships started to blossom.

Waheed led the way with 41 while Ben Jones contributed 25 as Collingham edged closer to their target as they moved onto 117-6.

Ashton Fell and Chaz Dixon then joined forces for the seventh wicket with runs needed and the overs dwindling.

Fell found the boundary on three occasions in his 15 not out while Dixon smashed a huge six to mid-off in his unbeaten 21 as the game was won in the 45th over.

Collingham 2nds were unable to reach a challenging target as they lost by 47 runs against Chilwell in Division C of the South Nottinghamshire League.

They had asked their visitors to bat first after winning the toss and captain Wilf Wright and David Pipes took the majority of the wickets as Chilwell were bowled out for 208.

Pipes picked up 4-27 while Wright returned 3-51 before Collingham set about chasing down their target.

Ross Taylor and Pipes got the reply off to a fine start until the latter was trapped leg before for 29.

Taylor went on to make 55 but wickets started to fall in quick succession around him until Ethan Speed and Sam Derry steadied the ship.

Speed scored 25 while Derry added 19 as Collingham were eventually bowled out for 161 in the 39th over.

Tom Mason was in sensational form as Collingham 3rds defeated Thrumpton by 105 runs in their Division L match.

Mason carried his bat throughout the 40 overs and finished unbeaten on 151 not out as Collingham closed on 251-3.

The opener smashed 19 fours and four sixes in his 129-ball innings while Oliver Wilcox added 33 and Ed Cooke made 42 in an excellent batting display.

Collingham took to the field positively and they bowled Thrumpton all out for 146 in the 33rd over.

Harry Geeson produced a superb spell of 3-5 from 6.3 overs which featured four maidens while Louis Carver returned 3-32.
