Newsletter: TOP OF DIVISION FIVE after 7 games


With a third of the season complete Melton 1st XI are sitting 7 points clear at the top of the Division five after what should be the trickiest part of the season over. We are all crossing our fingers that the English summer will finally land and bath our cricket grounds with warm sunny afternoons but that aside player availability should now be easier with players returning from holidays and other commitments. Our Second XI should now settle into a consistent team too so they should improve on their mid table position and following one of the oddest scorelines last week with Thorpe Arnold digging in for 50 runs from 45 overs, confidence can be taken from the disciplined bowling. 

Our Sunday XI is still being hampered by rained off games and cancelled fixtures so good weather would help here too. Lewis’s Tuesday night team is fighting against strong opposition in the Burrough League Division One but success in the cup so far will help as there are two fixtures this week.

Junior matches have also been heavily affected by the weather with only 3 matches of the 6 scheduled have been completed. Our Under II’s Incrediball side were unlucky to loose their  opening game as the team performed really well and our Under 10’s Kwick Cricket side is still unbeaten after 4 games in their two outings and impressive bowling on the last trip to Syston.
