WITH just four games remaining, Spaxton boosted their promotion chances with a 10 wicket home victory over North Curry.

After being asked to bat the visitors opener George Webber was in good form and hit 12 boundaries as he raced to a 31 ball 50 before falling to Adam Richards, and after 13 overs Curry had moved onto 90 for three.

Wickets continued to fall regularly and at drinks the score was 121 for five and Spaxton were looking to get through the lower order without too much addition.

However first Will Baverstock with a patient 50 and then Sam Powell with a quick fire 42 had other ideas and helped North Curry to reach 205 before they were all out in 35 overs.

For the hosts Matt McKenzie ended with two for 25,  John Bishop had two for 30, Dave Pople two for 37, while Richards ended with two for 47, 

Spaxton’ s openers Dan Rich and John Bishop set about the task of overhauling what looked like a tough total and after 10 overs the score was 57 without loss.

Rich was seeing the ball well and brought up his 50 in 49 balls. The runs continued to flow as the pair raced to the total without the loss of a wicket in the 30th over. 

Rich ended with an outstanding unbeaten 113 from 88 balls which included 15 fours and five 6s, while finished 69 not our from 107 deliveries and nine fours.

During the tea interval several members of the Thomas family ,who also sponsored the match, presented the Club with a seat in memory of Andrew Thomas who was a major part of the Spaxton sporting community for many years, during which he played cricket, football and rugby.
