Hat-trick of wins for Buxton senior teams

Buxton 1st team, leaders of Division 3 North of the Derbyshire County Cricket League, travelled to Hundall Cricket club on a beautiful Saturday sunny day. Buxton won the toss and decided to bowl first. After a quick start from one of the Hundall openers, Frankie Heathcote got the breakthrough for Buxton. Some very tight overs from the openers restricted the flow of runs including 3 maidens in a row for Harry Griffin. Fran slater and Kian Wilson bowled brilliantly in the middle overs restricting the runs and taking a couple of wickets each. Nick Allen bowled well taking 3 wickets at the end, all 3 being stumpings from wicket keeper Matt Whitehouse. Hundall ended the innings on 200 for 8 off their 45 overs and the chase was on. A very controlled start from Ram Goli and Bob Marsden got Buxton off to the perfect start reaching 50 without the loss of a wicket. Ram Goli showed his class with the bat yet again seeing off the openers and keeping his head after 2 wickets fell in very quick succession. This bringing Harry Griffin to the crease. Harry and Ram then shared a partnership of over 140 runs with Ram finishing not out on 79 and Harry scoring quickly before being caught on 83. Needing just 3 to win, Matt Whitehouse came to the crease hitting a six off his first ball for Buxton to win by 7 wickets, and finishing off a perfect batting display. Buxton 204 for 3 off 40.5 overs.

The other two wins of the day came from Buxton 2nd XI by 7 wickets against Ilkeston Rutland 3rd XI, Ilkeston 96 all out off 36.2 overs (3 for 15 for Chris Simcox and 3 for 33 for Phil Slater), Buxton in reply 97 for 3 off 17.3 overs (Shaun Fisher 38 not out) and Buxton 3rd XI by 3 wickets against Belper Meadows 4th XI.


In other games, Buxton 2nd XI drew their game against Stanton by Dale, 3 wickets for Lucas Tattersall and Mark Ainsley scored 39 with the bat. Buxton 3rd XI lost by 7 wickets against Hundall CC.


Buxton Ladies 1st XI Hard ball team triumphed over last seasons Division 3 West league winners Porthill Park in their first league game of the season, a hard fought win against a very tough opponent. Buxton 153 for 6 off 29.2 overs (Lydia Slack 78 not out), Porthill 149 for 6 off 30 overs.
