Dom Musgrove’s 4th XI travelled to Alberbury on Sunday and bowled them out for 103, Ryan Forrester, Joe Gregory,Kev Myatt and Shoaib Sajjad all chipping in with wickets, before Dom Musgrove ,49*, and Mike Ross, 40, knocked off the runs for a 9 wicket win .  You can view all the scorecards as and when they get posted via the links in the sidebar at the right of the page.

Considering our ground was covered with snow less than three weeks ago, Paul and Dave Smart have done a fantastic job to get it looking so good for the start of the season.
