ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER TITLE FOR COBO
JAMIE NUSSBAUMER’S Cobo side are still on for the clean sweep.
The Swoffers Bataille and Evening League crown (it seems) are in the bag and on Saturday they eased to the Swoffers Weekend Premiership title with an all too easy five-wicket win over a very weak Miton Optimal side.
Incredibly, the match was all over in just over two hours as Miton slumped to 76 all out in just 18 overs after both openers, Nairn Guilbert and Ben Fitchet, fell for ducks.
Only Will Peatfield, with 39, mounted much resistance and with Darren Rouse scoring 30 Cobo had the job done in 15.5 overs.
In the day’s other Pemiership clash Tim Duke hit 80-odd and young Arran White scored runs and took five wickets as Odey Rovers beat 2mi Wanderers by 32 runs at KGV.
White, who along with Dane Mullen reached the 40s before being dismissed, took five for 38 as Wanderers threatened to overhaul Rovers’ 260 but were all out for 228 in 38.1 overs.
James Gale made 79.
Meanwhile, ‘chapeau’ to St Sampson’s batsman Gavin Clark who is the midst of some excellent form, a run of Division Three games bringing him scores of 73, 53 and 59.
Another batter in good nick is Ben McVey who continued his 'striking' form, scoring 76 in only 40 balls with three sixes and seven fours in a Cobo B total of 172-3 wkts.
He was well supported by Rory Betley with 51 and Richie Sills with 15.
In reply Optimists very nearly reached the total, finishing on 170 for 7 wits with Carl Pugh scoring 59.
