This Saturday sees the 2/3 mark of the 2014 SNCL season so we decided to see where the four Senior sides are placed with 7 games to go.
The 1st XI have had a mixed season so far winning 4 and losing 5 of their games so far, with 2 games lost to the weather. The team have beaten the two teams in 2nd and 3rd place (Belvoir and Collingham respectively) but have let themselves down against the teams around them. It would take a fantastic run in to the end of the season to see them back in the mix for promotion. Top player so far for the 1s is Alex Sheriston.
The 2nd XI are sat in 7th place having won 3 and lost 5 games this season with 3 games lost to the weather. The team have also struggled for consistency and promotion looks beyond them at the moment with 2nd bottom only 11 points behind. DT will have to rally his troops to secure a decent finish to the season. Top batsman this season has been John Spragg with 291 runs at 41.00 and skipper DT has the most wickets with 14.
The 3s are in a relegation battle for the 2nd sussessive year currently lieing 2nd bottom in Division H. 2 wins and 7 losses show a poor return this season but with consistency of selection a problem skipper Stuart Clark will be hoping for a change of fortune in the last third of the season. Ian Huskison leads the way with both wickets and runs.
The 4th XI have been playing with either old duffers or young lads and lie 7th in Div M. A couple of consecutive wins has seen them lifted out of the relegation zone and skipper Dave Snowden will be hoping that they can keep the momentum going. VC Pete O’Donaghue leads the way with 278 runs at 39.71.
