Congratulations to Norton Woodseats CC - 2022 Mick Savage Trophy winners!
Posted on 25th August 2022 at 16:59
Our congratulations go to Norton Woodseats on their excellent Mick Savage Trophy final win over Upper Haugh at Darfield CC last Sunday.
Having won the toss and elected to bat first, Upper Haugh made a solid start with a 56-run opening partnership between Josh Heenan (28) and Naveed Shah (29), before the latter was caught off David Armitage. That precipitated a steady fall of wickets, and only Dean Smith, with an unbeaten 43, held the innings together whilst no-one else reached double figures. Michael Donson, with 4-31, was the main destroyer for Woodseats, as Upper Haugh were bowled out for 154 with three balls left in the last of their 40 overs.
In reply, it was Donson again, with 54 off 30 balls, who got his side off to a brisk start before falling to Shezad Shah, whilst Habil Malik (3-15) took three quick wickets at the other end, and Woodseats slipped to 65-4. David Armitage (38) then took over the anchor role and steered his side to within sight of victory at 135-6. He and wicket-keeper John Bagley then fell for the addition of one run, but Aamir Ashfaque (25 not out) got Woodseats over the line with eight balls to spare, in company with Ali Shah.
Michael Donson was a clear winner of the man-of-the-match award, and Woodseats' skipper Josh Cross received the Mick Savage Trophy from Mrs Jill Savage.
Our thanks once again go to Darfield CC for their excellent hosting of the day.
