Eggett’s efforts in vain as

seconds are soundly beaten


PATRINGTON CC seconds travelled to Newport on an overcast and muggy day last Saturday. The away side won the toss and elected to field.

The Patrington bowlers worked really hard with the shining light for the side being Jack Eggett, who bowled a superb spell ending with figures of 7 for 59 from 10 overs. Jack Todd (2-38) and James McGinty (1-21) picked up the other three wickets to fall.
The home side were steadied by knocks of 50 from skipper Adam Mitchell and middle order batsmen Sam Patel who snared a quickfire 56. Newport were bowled out for 172 in 35 overs.

Patrington’s reply, unfortunately never got going. Eggett opened the innings with Keiran Finnigan (2) and hung around for a while before he was bowled by Adam Mitchell for 14.

Matthew Phillips (3-8) tore through the top order as he picked up the wickets of Finnigan, with Daniel Fincham and Liam Murrey both failing to trouble the scorers.

Batting at five, Mark Todd made 14 not out, but the wickets tumbled at the other end as Mitchell bowled his side to victory with impressive bowling figures of 7-23 from 7.5 overs. Late resistance from James Medcalf (13) prolonged the inevitable but the away side were eventually all out for 69 in 27.5 overs with extras top scoring with 21.

The seconds, who are currently second bottom in the Division Holderness 3 table, will be hoping to bounce back this weekend when they take on North Ferriby at home on Saturday, who are three places above them on the league ladder, while the first team, who currently sit fourth in the Division Holderness 2 league table, are on the road as they travel to face eighthplaced Welton CC II.
