County League: Egerton Park Seconds slip up at Gilmorton

Have your say

A poor all-round performance saw Egerton Park Second XI lose at fellow Division Six East strugglers Gilmorton Village last Saturday.

Batting first, Park started strongly with Bailey and Tyler reliving their youth as they opened together for the first time in 15 years.

Bailey smashed a quickfire 23, but when Tyler fell, trapped plum lbw for 20, the all-too-familiar collapse started.

Only Mould, with 24, made it into double figures as Park fell away to a disappointing 110 all out.

Webster again bowled tightly with only nine runs coming off his nine overs, but after Beeken struck twice in his first over, wickets came hard to come by.

And by the time all-rounder McNeight claimed two wickets in two balls the game was over.

Park must now win all of their last three games to avoid the drop, starting at home to Uppingham Town on Saturday (1pm).

Park: Tyler 20, Bailey 23, Bates 8, Mould 24, Beeken 2, Lansdowne 2, McNeight 9, Barnard 4, Barber 7, Rodenby 1, Extras 10. Total: 110.

Gilmorton: 111-3.
