North Wheatley with Leverton were put to the sword when they visited Bassetlaw Cricket League Championship leaders Glapwell on Saturday.

The hosts scored 199 for 8 and the Wheatley batsmen had no answer to Glapwell’s Anish Paraam who took seven wickets for just 12 runs to help skittle the visitors out for 97.

There was a high-scoring contest in Division One between local sides Everton and Wiseton at the Metcalfe Ground.

A fantastic 165 not out by Jon Mimms and 53 from Dan Brighton helped Everton to a mammoth 285 for 4, but the Wiseton batsmen proved no pushovers and they hung on for a losing draw thanks to solid knocks by Mike White (76), Matt Loates (62), Richard Watts (57) and James Moss (37) to finish on 273 for 9.

There was another fine batting display from a local batsman in Division Three at Middlefield Lane as Lea Park’s Chris Needham scored 114 not out and he was well supported by Lee Mardle on 74 as the hosts totalled 247 for 6 against Teversal, who were then bowled out for 174 to give Lea a 73-run victory.

In Division Four Rose Leisure recorded a great four-wicket win away to Clumber Park.

Mick Spencer took 4 for 17 as the hosts were bowled out for 129 and then Andrew West (41), Ashley Clay (35*) and Ben Smith (31) helped Roses get to their victory target.

There was disappointment for Marshalls after they had posted a respectable 232 for 7 in their away match at Blidworth II, with Mark Whitlam hitting a fine 89, but the hosts eased past that total with five wickets to spare.

The local derby at South Wheatley between North Wheatley with Leverton II and Everton II ended with the hosts claiming a winning draw after scoring 211 for 8 and then restricting Everton to 126 for 6.

Misterton went down to a disappointing five-wicket defeat away to East Drayton in Division Five.

They were all out for 142 with Mark Tillen hitting a defiant 36 but the hosts comfortably passed that total.

In Division Six Wiseton II came close to a win when entertaining Clumber Park III.

The visitors batted first and scored 217 for 8 with Sam Armistead returning respectable figures of 4 for 42, and then Wiseton were on 203 for 8 (Paul Pietrzak 55, James Edgeley 44 not out and Richard Brown 34) when the overs ran out and so they had to be content with a losing draw.
