Worksop II bounced back from last week’s tight defeat to Everton, with a resounding victory over Milton.

Visitors Worksop won the toss and elected to bat.

The decision looked like a brilliant one, as Lee Morris and Geoff Young took the score to 107 before the loss of the first wicket, when Morris was caught at deep mid wicket for a fine knock of 64.

This sparked a familiar scene in recent weeks for Worksop as the middle order folded, following the departure of Young for 40 and only some late hitting from Rich Snowdon and new recruit John Budden boosted Worksop’s total to a below par 166 all out.

The Milton reply began with a bang as the opener flat batted spinner Snowdon straight down the ground for a pair of boundaries, before being bowled attempting the same shot.

Worksop were soon in the ascendancy when Tingle picked up two sharp wickets to get the experienced pair of Warriner and Woods in.

A fantastic middle order spell from Ben Swales ripped the heart out of Milton and Worksop eventually bowled the hosts out for 128, Swales finishing with an excellent 6-43.

Other bowlers used were Snowdon (1-31), Tingle (3-20) and Cairns (0-26).

Worksop now move on to play table topping Waleswood at home on Saturday.

On Bank Holiday Monday 31st August Worksop ricket Club are holding a family fun day.
