More news, no ads


Newark Ransome & Marles 1sts (79/3) beat Southwell 1sts (77/all out) by seven wickets

There’s nothing like an early derby day win to get your season under way, and that was the case Newark R&M 1sts on Saturday as they earned their first league victory with an efficient display against Southwell’s first team in Division C of the South Notts League.

Former captain and opening batsman Tom Clarke was the main stay for a Southwell side who were all out for 77, collecting 25 runs from 100 balls.

The rest of his team mates faced a collective 111 balls.

His team-mates also failed to make it into double figure digits in bat, but for the unbeaten Tinotenda Sembezeya, who finished on 19 runs from the 15 balls he faced.

Newark’s Michael Stackhouse put in an impressive bowling display, taking four wickets from his five overs, conceding just four runs in that time.

Charlie Hauton and Jack Edwards kicked off the Newark response, hitting 19 and eight runs respectively.

After Michael Stackhouse was run out without a score, the unbeaten partnership of Robert Matchett (29) and Thomas Gregorick (12) took to the crease and took Newark over the line in the 26th over, earning a seven-wicket win.

Newark captain Harry Atkinson can take some promise from his team’s side, sitting third after two games having highlighted last season’s tricky start as one of the reasons the club didn’t win the Division D title.

This weekend, Newark travel to early leaders Gotham Village.

Southwell host Young Lions.

Lowdham (237/4) beat Farndon (116/all out) by 121 runs

It proved to be a difficult journey up the A46 for Farndon, who suffered their first loss of the season.

The plaudits must go to the strong Lowdham openers Danny O’Donnell (78 from 56) Gopal Thakker (53 from 75) and Ashley Graham (47 from 66) who inspired the 121-run win.
