Batsman Ant Woolley continued his prolific run of form to guide PAPPLEWICK AND LINBY 2ND to a tremendous victory over tabletopping Mansfield Hosiery Mills 2nd in Division Two of the Bassetlaw League.

It’s now a month since opener Woolley was dismissed as he followed up previous knocks of 105 not out and 46 not out with an unbeaten 53 (two sixes and four fours) in a six-wicket success.

He shared an unbroken stand of 72 for the fifth wicket with skipper Jamie Peat (47 not out, four sixes and four fours) as fast-improving Papplewick eased to 143-4 after bowling out Hosiery Mills for 137.

All five of their bowlers took wickets, most notably Jonathan Thrower (3-20 in 13 overs) and Alex Hudson (3-25 in 7.3).

In contrast, the recent revival of PAPPLEWICK AND LINBY 3RD came a cropper at Ollerton Colliery in Division Six of the Bassetlaw League.

Captain Andy Paulson was left stranded on 26 not out as his side were skittled for 90 before Ollerton reached their target for the loss of four wickets.
