TIGHT FINISH LEAVES BUXTON 1st XI STILL TOP

The top of the table clash between Buxton 1st XI and Glapwell Colliery 1st XI was a superb game of cricket with Glapwell deservedly winning in the end by three wickets. Batting first on a true and firm Park surface, Ram Goli and Bob Marsden put on 46 for the first wicket against accurate bowling. Martin Sollis (29) and Harry Griffin (31) batted solidly to leave Buxton on 175 for 4, but with overs running out big hitters Matt Whitehouse (31) and Andrew Slater (36) did not have enough time to build a big score, the Buxton innings closing on 214 for 9 off their 45 overs, probably 25 short of a winning total.


Glapwell's Steve Scott led the reply with a stylish 71, but two wickets apiece from Frankie Heathcote, Fran Slater and Nick Allen kept Glapwell in check. At 146 for 7 Buxton were well placed to win the game, but the eighth wicket pair of George Unwin and Matt Page batted superbly and without giving a chance to win the game. Glapwell finishing on 220 for 7 off 41.2 overs. The result leaves both teams on equal points at the top of the table.


Fantastic to see so many supporters watching the game on a beautiful day and thanks to Buxton Brewery for a well-stocked bar for refreshments.


Buxton 2nds defeated Glapwell Colliery 2nds by four wickets to remain top of the table. Glapwell scored 179 for 7 from their 40 overs and in reply, Tom Blakeman with 57 not out, well supported by Sean Sutton (32) and Will Annison (24) to see Buxton to victory. Buxton 3rds also continue to go well with a five wicket victory over Codnor 2nds. Joel Sanchez with three for 16 led the way when Buxton bowled and Rich Bunting's big hitting (42 not out) led to a convincing victory. Buxton 4ths lost by 10 wickets to a very strong Alfreton 3rds.
