NOT THE RESULT EITHER SIDE WANTED

Sibton Park relegated and Old Wilsonians finish third

Sibton Park  155,   Old   Wilsonians   156   for   6

            Sibton Park went into this game knowing that they needed to win to avoid being relegated, whilst Old Wilsonians had to win in order to stand an outside chance of promotion. In the end they were both disappointed as the host’s defeat sees them playing Division Three cricket in 2018, whilst St Lawrence’s victory at Chestfield sees the OWs finish in third place in Division Two
            The game started disastrously for the Park, with both openers back in the pavilion after two overs without a run on the board. Jamie Keller (46) then dug in as he attempted a rescue act whilst Steve Hickmott (33) and Steve Rowe (25) then batted with purpose to try and set a challenging total,  but Dave Ellicott-White came back to take four wickets for three runs, including that of Keller, to finish with 4 for 12 and the hosts were all out for 155
            The OWs lost an early wicket to give Sibton hope before a fourth wicket partnership of 69 between Matt Abbett (43) and Michael Mitchell (27)  put them in control,  only for three wickets to fall for 2 runs to give the home side  some impetus. However,  there were no further alarms and the visitors got home with over nine overs to spare
