Dominant win for Buxton Cricket Club

Buxton 1s comfortably sealed the win this weekend as they were hosted by Swarkestone 2s at the Barrow Turn. An exciting game with both sides being newly promoted to Division 2


Buxton won the toss and opted for the home side to bat first and test the conditions. Pressure was built from the off as some great attacking spells from Buxton’s seam bowlers led to some early wickets and Swarkestone very much on the back foot, as they stood at 30-5 within the first 15 overs. Figures included 3-26 from E Donnelly, 1-12 from L Tattersall and 1-14 from H Griffin.


Dominant spells continued as Buxton turned to spin bowling throughout the middle overs. The bowling partnership of C Griffin, 2-14, and F Slater, 3-7, provided more chances as the home side struggled to find their rhythm. The latter half of Swarkestone’s batting lineup were cleared up within 32 overs as they were all out for 75, leaving Buxton confident in chasing the total down.


Buxton’s batting innings started solidly with R Goli, 20, showing some attacking shots with the intent on reaching the target quickly. Swarkestone’s bowling attack made inroads as they collected a few wickets, however the total set just wasn’t enough as Buxton were victorious and cruised to their target with just 3 wickets down and within 17 overs. Further batting contributions included a steady innings from opener B Marsden, who was left on 20 not out.


Buxton 2nds also dominated in their game at home to Ashford in the Water winning by 9 wickets. Winning the toss Buxton put Ashford into bat on a damp wicket, bowling them out for 60 runs off 24 overs. Umair Ali (pictured) on his debut took 4 wickets for 15 runs and club stalwart Phil Slater took 5 for 19 in support. In reply Joel Sanchez with 22 not out and Dave Belfield with 35 not out knocked off the runs required in 16 overs.
