Collycroft win final

By Danielle Hicks on Jul 29, 10 11:09 AM

COLLYCROFT lifted the Albert Robbins Rose Bowl for the first time in their Nuneaton Thursday Cricket League history after a tight struggle against lower division opponents Burbage.

The Bedworth side claimed the trophy with just eight balls to spare of a evenly-contested plate final at Atherstone Town's Ratcliffe Road ground.

Their hard-earned four-wickets victory was achieved after skipper Ryan Marsh took a gamble by electing to bowl first on a murky night and under the threat of ruin after he had won the toss.

Burbage, a young side through to a league final for the first time, quickly found difficulty scoring runs despite a lightning-quick outfield, and they could only muster a modest 101-7 at the end of their 18 overs.

Hitesh Desai, coming in second wicket down, provided the backbone of their innings with a knock of 33 before he was the last man out with the score on 92.

Collycroft's decision to bat second seemed to have back-fired as they lost opening batsmen Lee Marsh and Mark Harriman, both prolific run-getters, with just 11 scored.

But wicket-keeper Shaun Harris and the stylish Darren Scorey battled hard for runs to resuscitate their reply against some determined Burbage bowling - particularly from spinner Neil White who took three wickets from the 22 balls he bowled.

Harris and Scorey put on a vital 44 for the third wicket to put Collycroft on course for victory which was achieved in fading light off the fourth ball of the penultimate over.

Jack Gisbourne, a stalwart of the league throughout its 40-year history, presented the trophy and awards to the two teams.

* The league programme was decimated by localised thunderstorms last Thursday.

Only four of the 12 games were played although both top-of-the-table fixtures in the Premier Division survived. Ansley defeated Ambleside while Nuneaton suffered a shock defeat to lowly Atherstone.
