The innings fell away with the introduction of 17 year old George Crouch who took 6 for 39 in 10 his overs. Earlier Matt Marsden had taken 2 for 23 in his.

Ickleford's reply looked well on course at 90 for 2 18 overs. Duncan Jenner with 29 and Matt Baxter 34. However 14 year old Z Kureshi had other ideas.
