All-round star display from Nicholas helps Ambergate beat Aston-on-Trent

Ambergate CC are sitting pretty in second place in Division Two of the Derbyshire County Cricket League after their latest game.

They were in action on Saturday when they travelled to take on hosts Aston-on-Trent, who are just one place behind them in the table.

Aston-on-Trent won the toss and elected to bowl first.

They restricted Ambergate to 192-9 from their 46 overs.

The two main contributors to the Ambergate innings were Josh Nicholas with 55 and Jack McIver with 47.

Nicholas was also the star performer with the ball as Ambergate skittled out their hosts for just 64 in 17.2 overs to win by a very comfortable margin of 128 runs. He returned figures of 5-33.
