Clumber captain Mark Dean said: “It was a great team effort today with all six of our bowlers in the wickets.”

Clumber elected to bat and Dave Taylor and Matt Wheatley were building a strong platform.

Dan Fotheringham (3-23) led the way in the early stages of the reply, picking up the first two wickets and then snaffled dangerman Marson who holed out to mid-on.
