Thirds are dominated

Marston’s Pedigree Division 7N

Belper Meadows 3rd XI 92 all out suffered a loss at home to Mugginton 1st XI 93-0

BELPER Meadows thirds came up well short against Mugginton in this County League division seven clash.

Mugginton came away with the win they out rightly deserved after they dominated the entire game to inflict a ten-wicket defeat on the hosts.

Belper captain Dave Farnsworth won the toss and chose to bat on what seemed to be a bowler’s wicket; this quickly became apparent as Belper were skittled to 92 all out.

Mugginton’s chase was a confident one, the opening batsmen felt the need to finish the game off quickly and wrap up a convincing ten-wicket win to leave Belper taking no points from the game.

It may only be the beginning of the season but the Meadows third XI need to start picking up points to move away from the bottom of the table.
