Butterworth Jones lost to Doctors by 116 runs


 

Doctors ††††††††††††††††††††† 181 for 2

 

Butterworths†††††††††††††† 65 all out

 

Captain Sam Powell led from the front in an electric opening stand of 64 with Graham Fergusson which occupied only 6 overs.Powell (35 retired) exited in style with a soaring six and Fergusson (31 retired) soon followed him back to the pavilion, also signing off with a stylish boundary.Harry Lee and Alan Dunkley maintained the tempo until Lee (16) played an uncharacteristically ugly heave across the line to Ricky Savill (1-18) and Dunkley was caught by Phil Greenway off R.Dingle (1-29).The wickets gave only temporary respite to the toiling bowlers as Alex Kemp (30 n.o.) and Andrew Paisley (31 n.o.) kept the scoreboard rattling along at ten an over until the close of the innings.

 

Butterworths innings began disastrously when their best batsman David Edworthy was well stumped by Fergusson in Phil Barkerís first over.Things got worse when Fergusson snaffled a sharp catch off Tom Adcock and the same bowler produced a beauty to bowl J.Dean.David Savill and James Bacon steadied the ship for a while in the face of tight, demanding bowling by Barker and Adcock but then Savill (10) drove Barker (2-10) to Lee at extra cover and Ricky Savill chipped Adcock (3-20) tamely to Dunkley at square leg.Bacon thereafter played pretty much a lone hand as Peter Reed (3-8) and Charles Macadam ran through the other batsmen.Angus McDonagh was mortified to pick out Kemp at deep midwicket and Baconís excellent innings of 25 ended with a catch to Powell off Macadam (2-19).
