MITON ARE WEEKEND PREM CHAMPIONS
Miton Optimal are the Swoffers GCB Premier Weekend League champions for 2014.
In the title-deciding match against Next Generation Cobo Tigers at the KGV, Miton chased down Cobo’s total of 181 to win by five wickets, with Tom Kimber hitting a highly creditable 92.
With a slightly weakened batting order - Jamie Nussbaumer and Tim Ravenscroft being absent - Cobo got off to a inauspicious start, but Ollie Newey came in third to hit a half-century before being stumped by Tom Kimber on 55.
Ferbrache and Jenkins then fell for 11 and 15, before Stuart Le Prevost was dismissed leg before on five. Miton's Max Ellis took four wickets for the loss of 15 runs.
Miton’s openers Glen Le Tissier and Dave Hooper fell with 12 runs between them, bowled by Jenkins and Newey.
Tom Kimber came in at five to steal the show, hitting 92 off 106 balls before finally being caught by Ollie Newey off a Ben Ferbrache delivery.
Nairn Guilbert added 39 not out, that brought Miton to 184-5 and surpass Cobo’s total.
