4ths finished second best


We traveled to Carnforth on Sunday, and took first knock on a belter of a batting track. Adam Lewis and Harry Smith got us away to a fine start, Harry hitting a couple of top-drawer back foot cover drives before getting a Jaffa. Vaughan took over and batted well for half an hour or so. Mick then joined Adam until way past drinks, hitting 34, and Charlie Nicholls saw us through to tea with 19no. Adam was undefeated on 60. We closed on 164 for 3.

Carnforth have some experienced batters in their top five, and with the pitch giving no help to the bowlers, Harry, Charlie, Vaughan, Lewis, and Callum did really well to give them a testing time.

Eventually, though, the home side prevailed for the loss of 4 wickets.:
