Belper Meadows cricketers top Section Four of the Mansfield and District Sunday League, after two games of the 2015 season.

Neil Horton and Chris Whiteley were the star men on Sunday, as they clinched an emphatic eight wicket win over Sherwood Colliery III.

Sherwood were in trouble early in the day, bowled out for just 105 runs in 34 overs.

Whiteley took 6-22 to give his batsmen every chance of knocking off the required total.

And that’s where Horton took over, hitting 43 runs in Belper’s 108-2 off just 23 overs.
