Magic Moody ends the Whit­tle­sey blues

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News - By ALAN SWANN

WHIT­TLE­SEY sec­ond team were in a much bet­ter ‘Moody’ than nor­mal as they tasted a rare Rut­land League suc­cess.

The lo­cal lads didn’t win a sin­gle Di­vi­sion Seven game last sum­mer and they won just one in 2010 so Sun­day’s three-run suc­cess over Long Sut­ton sec­onds was a great oc­ca­sion for a side full of game young kids.

It didn’t look like they would have much to cel­e­brate though as their 10-man team was shot out for just 88, but Dale Moody’s 5-39 helped skit­tle Sut­ton for 85.

The cel­e­bra­tions were just as loud at Ket­ton af­ter their six-wicket Di­vi­sion Three win over Cas­tor, although it was the los­ing skip­per mak­ing most of the noise.

Rob Vi­tas cracked his first ever

CAS­TOR 2nds lost to HUNT­ING­DON 2nds by 11 runs back from their bat­ting catas­tro­phe of last week­end - they were bowled out for 15 - to beat Or­ton Park sec­onds and Blun­ham sec­onds in Hunts Di­vi­sion Four.

Dun­can Row­land (5-24), Liam Hearn (4-12) and David Cooper (52) per­formed well for the vil­lagers.
