After a slow start to the season, Denby’s batsman are now finding their form.

And they again displayed that fine form to record a comfortable 95 runs victory away to Spondon to leapfrog their hosts into second place in the Premier Division.

Alexander Eyre was in commanding form hitting 111 runs and sharing in two century partnerships.

He hit an opening stand of 123 with Michael Mitchell (48) and 101 for the second wicket with Peter Burgoyne (57), which enabled Denby to post a total of 271 for 8 off their 50 overs.

When Spondon batted Greg Cork removed both of the openers, Baum and Brear, cheaply, before Will Davis ripped through the middle order to finish with 5 for 36.

Only Graeme Tryon with a spirited 89 showed an prolonged resistance for Spondon and their innings closed on 176 all out after 35 overs.
