Netherfield Revel On Blackpool Trip

A DISMAL batting display by Blackpool handed Netherfield the match on a plate.

The home side won the toss and elected to bat, but lost wickets steadily and were all out for 53 as they were thoroughly pinned down by Stuart Nixon, 3-14, Scott Clement, 2-20, John Eccles, 2-8 and Pieter Styrdom , 2-4.

It took Blackpool 14 overs to move the score on from 30 to 40 and during that time Kendal bowlers served up seven consecutive maidens.

The best wicket of all was, however, a run out with Craig Walmsley scoring a direct hit from cover to remove O.


In reply it was Walmsley who led the attack.

He hit 32 not out, including six fours as the not particularly good wicket caught out colleagues Tommy Prime, Styrdom, J.

Mason, and P.

Stewart, who amassed just 12 runs between them.

Simon Dutton came in at four wickets down to smash two fours from the seven balls he received and see Netherfield home on 55-4.

The Northern League title now looks to be only a mathematical possibility, but the runners-up place is still to play for especially as second-placed Morecambe visit third-placed Netherfield on Saturday week.
