Duffield CC 1sts made it two maximum points wins out of two on Saturday and sit on top of the Division One of the Derbyshire County Cricket League.

They travelled to play Sawley and LE Park and recorded a handy score of 208-6 from their 50 overs.

Tim Williscroft (31) and Chris Sheldon (39) got the innings off to a fine start with a partnership of 55, followed by a knock of 56 from skipper Paul Bakel.

The hosts’ reply never really got going in the face of some fine Duffield bowling.

They were eventually bowled out for 127 to give Duffield an 81-run victory and 27 points from the match.

Adam Short took 3-25, Jono Clare 3-50 and Luke Webb 3-26.

This Saturday, Duffield 1sts are at home to Staveley Welfare.
