There was an impressive home win for Newark Ransome and Marles last Saturday.

Newark’s bowling attack took the fight straight to the Young Lions getting them all out for 62 runs in 20 overs.

And the batsman made short work of reaching the total. Making the runs without losing a wicket.

Newark R & M captain, Harry Atkinson said,
"It was an easy day for the team on Saturday against a much weaker young lions than last year. However there were a few key wickets still required to take in order for us

to ensure the 20 points. Tougher games to come will define our season."

The Newark openers managed to hit the needed runs in just over seven overs and were never really challenged as they surpassed Lions at a rate of more than a run a ball.

It was a dominating performance and cements their current place of third on the Division C table of the South Notts League.

Club chairman Luc Chignell said: “It was a strong showing by our first team, who have proven what they are capable of when they set their minds to it.

“Matthew Evans had a fantastic day with the ball and his five-for in the first innings put us firmly in the driver’s seat.”

“It was good to see to see our openers Tom Gregorick and Robert Buckley approach the run chase positively and both looked clinical as they knocked off the target quickly,.”

Chignell is now looking for the team to build on their progress in the second half of the season.

“As we move to the midpoint of the season I hope we can see more of the same from a team with the potential to go a long way,” he said.

“We’ve got several junior players making names for themselves in he 2nds and 3rds at the minute, and when they come through they’ll only strengthen us further.

“Kelham Road is an exciting place to be at the minute.”
