Great chance for Denby CC fifths

In the Mansfield & District league, Denby fifth XI team put themselves in with a great chance of promotion after recording a 92-run victory over Coal Aston.

Fraser Kirk made a superb unbeaten 140 out of a total of 224 for 3 after Denby chose to bat and they then dismissed Coal Aston for 132 with three overs remaining to set up a grand finale when they visit West Indian Cavaliers this Sunday.

Both teams have a chance to win the league, get promotion or end up in third place depending on the point’s differential.
