The Second's finally had their fate sealed at Regatta Way against Gedling & Sherwood. The story of the game epitomized the season really. Gedling batted first and scored 194-8 when they shouldn't have got passed 150, but the catching (at least 6 were grassed) and the ground fielding was shocking. In reply Calvo got off to a great start as Will Peat and Derek Pickering put on 106 for the opening wicket. What should have been a stroll to victory turned into the all to familiar collapse as the innings closed 17 runs short with 8 wickets down - criminal!
The First's also slipped down a league in another run fest at GLA. Gedling Colliery batted first and hit the ball to all parts. After 50 overs, 275-4 had been put on the scoreboard with 120 coming off the last 10 overs!! To maintain Division A status, only a win would suffice as the other scores filtered through. Despite a valiant effort (Eddie Lee 54, Rich Lee 43, Scott Andrew 40, Kevin Evans 39) it was to no avail as we finished 24 runs shy with 9 wickets down. Seven points were not enough and Division B it is for 2015.
