MID BUCKS CRICKET LEAGUE PREMIER DI­VI­SION Ayles­bury Town 100 all out Ballinger Wag­goners 101-1

Ballinger won by nine wick­ets

BALLINGER Wag­goners were grate­ful to a wed­ding which stripped op­po­nents Ayles­bury Town of half their first team on Satur­day.

Need­ing to win to cling on to their Mid Bucks Premier Di­vi­sion sta­tus, they bowled a scratch Ayles­bury side out for just 100 and, in re­ply, lost only Matt Ri­ley, be­fore Danny Draper (37no) and Rollo McIntyre (54no) saw them home.

It was harsh on rel­e­ga­tion ri­vals Knotty Green, who man­aged to beat Holmer Green, who un­til last week had been in con­tention for the ti­tle, but fin­ished third.

Ballinger’s win clinched sev­enth place for them and sent Knotty down in sec­ond from bot­tom.
