WHITWELL were victorious in a Bassetlaw Division One derby against Clumber Park on Saturday.

The hosts made 138 for 9 at the Rookery, before dismissing their visitors for 111.

Bowlers Andrew Heath and Greg Searston took four wickets apiece for the home side, who earned 20 points while previously in-form Clumber had to settle for four.

In the Bassetlaw Championship, Worksop kept up their good early season form with a 19-point victory over Thoresby Colliery.

The Colliery side made 184 for 9 thanks to a late flurry of runs from Lee Willis (46*), but Worksop knocked off the required total for the loss of just five wickets, Vipinlal Manikoth top scoring with 69.
