The big derby day was Sunday with the first and second eleven facing Burnley infront of a massive crowd. Batting first the first team posted 168 for 8 off their 50 overs seemingly unable to kick into 5th gear with the bat. Charlie top scored with 42, with Ocki (39) and Dean (38) helping the total. Burnley got off to a rapid reply before House turned the screw with a few wickets and got over the line 6 down after 43 overs. Toxy and Paddy took 2 wickets a piece. Full scorecard here
