Denton Wins Again - Again!
Denton Cricket Club recorded an outstanding victory in their match against a Wortwell XI on Friday evening, 3rd July.
In an 18 over per side game played at the Wortwell recreation ground, the home team batted first and scored 70 runs all out. The Denton bowlers performed well but were assisted by some good fielding and excellent catching with Ken Wright showing his wicket-keeping skills behind the stumps. Ian Cooper was very impressive but the best figures came from James Godsmark who took the last three wickets in 5 balls for no runs. The last two wickets came off consecutive balls so he will be on a hat-trick for the next match.
Denton’s batsmen then hit out and passed their opponent’s total in just eight overs. There were several useful innings but Andy Hipwell made a major contribution.
It was a great all-round team performance with both younger and more experienced members playing their part The side was very ably captained by Ken Wright. It is hoped to organise further fixtures and the construction of a practice net is being discussed.
