Division 1 
Aston Hall 2nds v South Kirkby Colliery 
A solid performance by the visitors’ top order gave them a very respectable total after being put in to bat at Green Lane. Openers James Butler (24) and Jake Rimmington got them off to a fine start with a stand of 77, and whilst Fida Mohammad and Yousaf Ali bowled the home side back into the game, bottom-of-the-division Aston Hall were facing a tough task when the rain caused the game to be abandoned.

Hallam 2nds v Green Moor 
Green Moor kept up the pace in second place with what turned out to be a routine victory away at Hallam 2nds. In a game which was limited to 30 overs, Hallam put their visitors into bat but failed to limit them as they posted 177-6. Wayne Hughes was by far and away the star of the show for the away side as he plundered 88 off 66 balls, backed up by an anchoring innings from Jamie Dixon, as the pair added 147 for the fourth wicket to rescue their side from 14-3. Hughes was to contribute again in the second innings when Green Moor bowled Hallam out for 131, and Jake Rodgers came away with 4-17 from nine overs with an economy rate of just 1.89. There was notable resistance from Matthew Hopkins at number nine after the hosts had been reduced to 51-7, when he scored 43 (36 balls) but it was too little too late and the home side, eleventh in the table, remain in serious danger.

Rotherham Town v Treeton 2nds

After the visitors had chosen to bat in the 30-over game, they will have been thrilled to post 206 for the loss of just three wickets. Matt Lambert carried his bat as he scored an excellent unbeaten 83 (87) which, along with 36 extras, put his team in what seemed to be a very strong position to move further away from the drop zone. Town, however, mounted a successful run chase, passing their target with just four balls to spare, and like the visitors, losing only three wickets. The crucial partnership, between Talha Shaheer and Irfan Mirza, added 85 for the third wicket, Mirza hitting an unbeaten 72 off 53 balls.

United’s Mihindukulasuriya Harsha Perera took his wickets tally for the season to an impressive 46. When the home side replied, the first wicket fell with the first ball of the innings when Abdul Latif removed Isuru Jayakody, and Shiregreen never really looked back from there.

With four early wickets falling to James Brown, Frecheville quickly slipped to 17-5 in reply, but Martyn Tideswell (21) and Tom Powell turned the tide with a fifth-wicket stand of 27, before Elliot Metcalfe (22*) and Adam Buckle (20*) saw their side over the line.
