Innings of: St Michael's
Innings of: Primrose Hill
Not a game to right home about. St Michael's were poor in all departments, and suffered a heavy 7 wicket defeat to Primrose Hill in this league match at the old stomping ground of Kingsthorpe Rec.
St Michael's batted first. On an unpredictable track, the home bowlers were always on top, with only skipper Ian Geddes making impression with a battling 22 from number 9. Johns was the pick of the bowlers, going straight through his 12 overs for a miserly 17 runs.
In reply, Primrose Hill batted with far more concentration than St Michael's. But it could have been a different story had the visitors not put down no less than 5 catches. Martin Baker, in his first game of the season, took a wicket in his first over back, comprehensively bowling Pete Ansell. And at 33 for 2, the game was still open, but a 54 run partnership between Leroy Moven and D Ansell took Primrose Hill to victory.
Next week sees St Michael's take on Prims XLCR in the Garnett Cup semi final. A much improved performance is a must, otherwise it could be the old story of concentrating on the league.
