Price paid for poor start
KERRIDGE CC GEOFF ALLEN KERRIDGE ................ 138 GROVES 2 ..............139-4
KERRIDGE struggled to recover from a poor start in their game against Groves at the weekend.
Ste Regan with 20 and Luke Wild with a well-struck 58 were the only Kerridge players to cause too much trouble for the scorers. Several made starts but faded against the attack of M Piercy 3-46 and D Flanaghan 3-7 as the home side were all out for 138.
With injuries to key bowlers it was never going to be easy but Adam Banks with 3-45 was the only bowler to make any real impression on the visiting batsmen as Groves, in the end, won with some ease.
K Welsh with 37 and A Tidman 33 not out did the damage for the visitors.
Hopefully it will be third time lucky at HMV on Saturday.
