Andy Hamilton was in fine form with both bat and ball as Dan Allen’s Maids Moreton side romped to another fine victory over local rivals Thornborough ‘A’ to maintain their position at the top of South Northants Division 4.
After losing the toss and being asked to bat first, Maids Moreton scored runs freely with Andy Hamilton crafting a fine 82 not out, ably assisted by Luke Tory with 52 not out. Thornborough’s only wicket taker was Tom Oxley with 1 for 26 as Dan Allen’s men finished on an impressive 182 for 1.
Thornborough never really came close to reaching their target and were bowled out for just 60, with Michael Fisk taking 4 for 9 and Andy Hamilton finishing his excellent afternoon’s work with 3 for 7.
Dan Allen hopes his side can maintain their place at the top of Division 4 when they entertain Thornborough ‘A’ tomorrow.
