Match report

St Michael's excellent start to the season continued as the overcome Finedon Dolben III by 6 wickets.

After a week of rain, the ground at Wellingborough's Redwell Leisure Centre was understandably on the wet side. St Michael's skipper Will Kingston lost the toss, the home side choosing to bat first on the damp wicket. Martin Baker made the early breakthrough, removing Michael Roberts and Ashley Denton in consecutive deliveries to leave Finedon reeling at 3 for 2. However the classy Dickie Denton aided first by Krishna Dholakia and then James Evans took the score onto 83 for 3. The prize wicket on Denton was secured by Ian Geddes, the County League legend eventually holing out to Will Kingston at mid wicket off Ian Geddes for an excellent 61.

The rest of the Finedon batting faded away as the last 7 wickets fell for 33 runs. Geddes ended up with 4 for 25, Baker a miserly 2 for 13 off 13 overs.

The St Michael's reply got off to a nervy start as Danny York was caught at gully for 5 off Adam Weston. Alan Bartley was joined at the wicket by Will Kingston and they steadied the ship, adding 46 for the second wicket until Kingston was caught for a rapid 33. The target of 117 was always in reach as Faizal Omarji and Ian Geddes both chipped in with useful knocks. The winning runs came with 9 overs to spare as Dale Harrison spanked a 4 over the covers to secure a second batting point, Bartley batting through for a gritty 29.
