Great effort by the Seconds

Two T20 wins for the second team today, against Nottinghamshire at the 3aaa County Ground.

Wes Durston captained the side, which included Neil Broom and Andy Carter, but it was youngsters who largely led the way.

In the first game, we made 156-5, with Ben Slater making 57 and Scott Elstone 28 not out. The visitors, despite some big names in their side including Brendon Taylor, were 127-8, with Harry White returning the excellent figures of 2-14, as we won by 29 runs.

In the second game, Nottinghamshire made a very average 123-5, with Will Davis taking 2-26 and Andy Carter conceding only ten runs in taking one wicket in his four overs.

We breezed to victory, with Alex Hughes and Greg Cork adding an unbroken 84 runs and finishing 45 and 40 not out respectively. An eight-wicket win with three overs in hand is pretty emphatic.

Very encouraging, I am sure you will agree!
