Grey Fox Trophy Results - Harden Cuckoos Victorious
Harden Cuckoos (152) V Rainton CC (108)
Another thoroughly enjoyable game played in good spirit was enjoyed by all.
Good bowling by the visitors opening bowlers P.Ainsley and J.Armstrong reduced the home side to 7 for 3, but resolute knocks from G.Boulton (34 not out),
B. Freimanis (30 not out) S.Bateman (27) and M.Higgins (19) saw the home side recover to post a respectable 152 for 9 on a challenging wicket for batsmen to score freely.
In response, tight bowling by Harden openers P.Leng & G.Boulton – never allowed the visitors to get off to a good start and despite defiant knocks from P.Ainsley(26) & D.Roberts (25).
Rainton lost wickets at regular intervals to fall 43 runs short of their target. Pick of the bowlers was 60 year old B.Freimanis with 3 for 31 and he was well supported by the rest of the Harden bowlers.
