Match Reports April


Only the third team fixture away at Codsall survived the poor weather at the weekend, and the game ended in an entertaining draw as Penkridge hung on for a losing draw.

Codsall batted first and were bowled out for 196, a total which owed much to the efforts of John Baker (91). The wickets were shared amongst Penkridge’s youthful bowling attack, with Will Hinder(3-39) and Sam Horobin (4-17) the pick of the bowlers.
Penkridge never really threatened to pass the victory target, but were at least able to avoid defeat, finishing on 155-9 with captain Ollie Deakin (24) and veteran Steve Jones (26) the top scorers.
