DABBERS were whitewashed by second placed Hyde in Saturday’s ECB Premier League Nantwich looked anything but two-times champions at Whitehouse Lane where the Dabbers. After opting to bat first on what proved to be a seamers’ paradise, they never recovered from losing Jonny Kettle, Louis Bentley and Ollie Law for a total of 11 runs.
Dabbers only posted a modest 126 thanks to doughty efforts from promising teenager Sam Hunt (28 not out and skipper Andy Newton (26). Lively bowling from Greg Lomax, 4-21 and Scott Kirwin, 4-54, backed up typically keen fielding, proved a lethal cocktail.
After tea, the new-look, ultra-positive Tom Twiney (77) outbatted his in-form skipper Danny Berry (54) as their pair knocked off the runs in 22 overs for a 25 – 0 points return.
Nantwich travel to Macclesfield on Saturday in the Premier league, 12.30pm start.
