Stansfield frustrated

Scholes – battling to get off the foot of the BCL Premier Division table – suffered a six-wicket defeat to their neighbours at the bottom of the hill, Woodlands.

Skipper James Stansfield, who top scored with 38, was far from happy with the 99-9 on a damp track.

“We could and should have scored 30-50 more runs,” said Stansfield.

“In doing so, I reckon not only would we have had more bonus points but we would also have asked more questions of Woodlands, who had lost four wickets by the time they had passed our score.”

Elliot Richardson (4-34) and Chris Brice (4-30) had pinned down the Scholes batting line up.

Stansfield, leading from the front, took 3-25 in the Woodlands’ innings but Sam Frankland (44) and Callum Gilbert (34) ensured the hard work had been done when they departed from the crease.
