The hottest day of the year saw SN win the toss & bat against a youthful DCA side on Saturday 5th May. An excellent 1st slip catch by Davies saw Simon Birtwisle depart for 20 at 27-1 in the 6th. At 97 Peyton (36) was lbw to Ahmed & attacking, Graham (38) caught at mid wicket for 38 at 105-3 in the 25th.


Trevaskis & Cragg moved the score to 182 in the 38th when Davies held a hard hit boundary catch from Trevaskis (40) & Cragg followed lbw to Davies for 40 one over later. A nice partnership of 53 between Tindale (39) & Sam Dale(13) ended in consecutive balls in the 50th over at 235-7. Stanyon (12) & Doig (9*) attacked to take the score to 258 before losing two wickets in the 53rd at the declaration. 7 bowlers used, Ahmed 3-66, Davies 2-27 & a wicket each fro Dass, Bell & Gibson.

The spinners wheeled away on a flat surface. Jamie Dass may have been unlucky to be run out for 12, 100-5, & at 128 in the 37th, Matthew Oswell was lbw to Stanyon for 24 off 55 balls. Luke Doneathy was joined by w/k Tom McIntosh who after striking Wightman for consecutive boundaries was bowled by Tindale for 10, 142-7, 42nd.
