Triumph for Under 15s

FIRBECK’S Under 15 side triumphed in the Bassetlaw Junior Cup final, against a previously unbeaten Killamarsh Juniors.

Firbeck asked Killamarsh to bat, and although openers R. Domelly (17) and D. Attack (17) made steady progress, inspired spin bowling led to a batting collapse.

B. Holmes (4-8) and R. Barson (2-10) ripped through the order and L. Rose (2-18) struck to leave Killamarsh 66 for 8.

In reply Firbeck openers B. Holmes (17*) and M. Alder (40*) were 35 without loss at halfway, before Alder pushed on, taking 19 from one over, leaving six to win.

He then hit a four and a huge six to make Firbeck champions.
