CRICKET: Grantham make short work of Woolsthorpe

Grantham & Melton Association

Division One

Woolsthorpe 98

Grantham 102-1

It was a much more relaxed affair after the fireworks of Saturday’s match at Gorse Lane as Grantham welcomed Woolsthorpe on a cloudy afternoon.

The visitors chose to bat first, having arrived with only nine men and the young Grantham strike bowlers made swift inroads to the batting line-up.

Wickets fell at regular intervals as the visitors struggled to a total of 98. Bowlers Neel Stevenson (3-2) and Danny Ashley (2-20) made short work of the tailenders.

Despite a rain delay, Grantham then made short work of the target too.

Woolsthorpe were handicapped by only having eight fielders and openers David Whapplington (54) and Stewart Mudie (40no) dealt with the lion’s share of the runs in the first 10 overs.

A comprehensive victory for Grantham gave them a full 20 points and moved them up to fifth in the league.
