Wymeswold CC Match Reports – Saturday 17th August

Shelton spins it for Wymeswold

 Young spinner Jack Shelton took a career-best 6 for 6 to steer Wymeswold to an emphatic nine-wicket win at Farndon in Division D of the South Notts Cricket League.

Skipper Rob Pitman won the toss and chose to bowl first on a drying wicket, which proved to be the correct call as Shelton’s 6 wickets in 5.4 overs was supported by Toby Smith with 3 for 14 as the home side were skittled out for just 67.

In reply, Luke Scoble was unbeaten on 42 as Wymeswold cruised to victory in just 16 overs for the loss of one wicket. The result moves the Wold to fourth in the SNCL Division D table, still with an outside chance of promotion if they were to win both of their final two games.

Meanwhile in Division L of the league Wymeswold’s second team lost by 75 runs at home to Midlands CC.

The visitors batted first and reached 140 for 8 in 36 overs, with Sam Whowell being the pick of the bowlers claiming 3 for 41.

In reply Wymeswold’s batsmen crashed to 65 all-out, with only veteran Pete Shaw making a significant contribution with 43.

Wymeswold’s run halted

Wymeswold’s winning run came to an end with a 27-run defeat at near-neighbours Hickling in Division D of the South Notts Cricket League.

The home side batted first and raced to 197 for 5 in 40 overs with spinner Jack Shelton taking 2 for 30.

In reply, skipper Rob Pitman top-scored with 37 but Wymeswold’s other batsmen were unable to push on. Toby Smith hit 27, Paul Brain made 22 and Charlie Raynes was 22 not out as the Wolds side were bowled out for 170 in the 39th over.

Meanwhile in Division L of the league Wymeswold’s second team coincidentally also lost out by 27 runs, this time at home to Thrumpton seconds.

The visitors batted first and reached 163 for 5 in 36 overs, with Dwight Bent being the pick of the bowlers claiming 3 for 29.

However, the 29 extras conceded proved the difference as Wymeswold’s batsmen were 136 all out in reply, with Pete Shaw (28), Alfie Dunton (29) and James Walker (25) all making contributions.

Four in a row for Wymeswold

 Vice Captain Paul Brain hit a half century to help his Wymeswold side to a fourth consecutive win in Division D of the South Notts Cricket League, this time at home to Newark R & M.

Brain won the toss and chose to bat first, with opener Dan Barry’s 35 the pick of the top-order batsmen as the Wold reached 65 for 4. Paul Brain (51) and Charlie Raynes (45) then shared a stand of 72 before a late flurry from Pete Shaw (25) and Jack Shelton (16no) pushed the total to 218 for 9 from 45 overs.

In reply the visitors were well placed at 165 for 2, but then three wickets from Luke Scoble, backed up by two apiece for Dan Barry and Toby Smith, swung the game back to the home side. In the end Newark ended on 204 for 7 from 45 overs, sealing a 14-run win for Wymeswold.

Meanwhile in Division L of the league Wymeswold’s second team lost out by 47 runs at West Bridgfordians 4ths.

The home side batted first and made 152 for 5, with 14-year-old Joe Wells taking a wicket on his senior debut.

In reply, Wymeswold turned a useful 31 for 1 into 39 for 7. Only Callum Purcell (13), Andy Matthews (27) and Sam Tyler (19) were able to add respectability to the score as the seconds were bowled out for 105 in the 30th over.

RAF Wymeswold after WWII

The Wolds Historical Organisation web site is hosting a remarkable new free PDF.

This is a detailed history of activities at Wymeswold airfield in the 1950s and 1960s which has been prepared by Richard Knight, who grew up at the western end of the runways.

Most of the information is about the activities of the RAF and Fields Aircraft Services, although there are also lots of previously-unseen photographs taken in the winter of 1944 and during the build up to D-Day, and photographs taken during public open days.

This is available as a free PDF: www.hoap.co.uk/who/raf_wymeswold.pdf.

Scoble wins it for Wymeswold

Luke Scoble hit an unbeaten 94 to steer his Wymeswold side to a third consecutive win in Division D of the South Notts Cricket League, this time at home to Farndon.

After winning the toss Wold skipper Rob Pitman asked the visitors to bat first in tricky conditions due to rain, and would have been pleased as Harry Scoble (3 for 37) and Jack Shelton (3 for 44) restricted Farndon to 166 for 9 in 36 overs.

In reply Pitman himself made 12, but fellow opener Luke Scoble dominated, hitting 11 fours and 2 sixes in an unbeaten 104-run partnership with Dan Barry, who ended on 37 not out. The pair saw Wymeswold home for the loss of just three wickets in the 30th over.

Meanwhile in Division L of the league Wymeswold’s second team game at Midlands CC was abandoned after 11 overs due to heavy rain.
