Buxton 1st XI maintained their top position in Division 3 North of the Derbyshire Cricket League with a comfortable win against Darley Dale 1st XI by 125 runs. Put in by the opposition again on a drying wicket and slow very green outfield, Buxton got off to a steady start with the opening three batsmen adding 60 runs off the first 22 overs before the big hitters came to the crease and started smashing the ball around. Harry Griffin recorded his 500 runs for the season with a spectacular 95 runs which included a 77 run partnership with Andrew Slater who made 52 not out, including 3 sixes and 6 fours and a strike rate of 179. Matt Whitehouse hit a rapid 30 to leave Buxton on 260 for 6 off their 45 overs.

Harry Griffin smashed 95 off 90 balls

Buxton controlled the game from the first over in Darley Dale’s reply and never got anywhere near the required rate and after 20 overs it was never achievable. Very controlled bowling from Fran Slater and Nick Allen and a decent spell from Tom Blakeman left the opposition on 135 for 9 off their 45 overs.

In other games, Buxton 2nd XI tied their game with South Wingfield 3rd XI. Alfie Bunting with 90 not out for Buxton.
