The painstaking process of updating statistics from old scorebooks continues.
The 2008 season for Barton 2nd XI is now complete ( note matches added have in part been added as friendly matches until league administrator can assist!).
The team finished 3rd in a season that now records the following -
Kipling 100 not out v Caistor (rain delayed start and he didn’t even want to play!)
Mellows 201 not out v Grimsby 3rds ( take a look at the boundary and run rate stats - he also took wickets in same match!)
Teggy has ended up with 11 more wickets (he is a machine).
Elliot Sampson, Bainborough, McNaught and Billy Wright all make Saturday debuts.
In addition, one Alex Shreeve makes an inauspicious start to Saturday cricket with 10 runs v Caistor 3rds in a match where Ash Hooper scored 96 not out.
Outcasts 2nds being bowled out for 18 and great memories in a season where Mellors, Whittaker and a young Oliver Mussett engaged in a 6 hitting completion throughout the season - check out who won!
There are matches from 2007 and 2009 and 2010 to update in future weeks. A plea to veteran players - Please search your garages and attics to see if you have any old score books lying around. It would be super to update matches for posterity reasons. Jeremy Mark Evans
