Aug 1 – Cae Glas II v Forton

Cae Glas won the toss and put the visitors into bat. Conditions became tricky as the game continued through heavy rain. Shaun Southern (2 for 23) and Ollie Pope (1 for 14) both took wickets but Forton looked set to build a sizeable at the halfway mark with wickets in hand.

The introduction of Nick Chesters changed the game as he removed the Forton middle order and finished with figures of 5 for 55 off 14 overs. Forton pegged back to finish with 154 for 8 off their allocated 45 overs.
