Division 4
Willoughby A v Dunchurch & Bilton A

Willoughby A 183 for 6
Dunchurch & Bilton A 128 for 9

Willoughby A won by 55 runs

Willoughby’s second eleven crowned their Division 4 title promotion winning season with a comfortable victory over their Dunchurch and Bilton counterparts.

With promotion already in the bag, any pressure for Willoughby to muster a handful of points to become champions was well and truly off with the added bonus before the game that the league title was also secured from a points adjustment by the League going in their favour.

Nevertheless, local pride was at stake and batting first in a match reduced to 37 overs, Willoughby posted a useful target for the visitors to aim at, making 183 for 6. James Goodwin led the way with the bat and fell short of what would have been a maiden century in his first season with the club, top scoring with 96. That knock was boosted late on by the father and son combination of Fergus and Michael Deery also making 24 not out and 19 not out respectively in an unbeaten stand of 40.

In reply, Dunchurch & Bilton were well adrift at the close, reaching 128 for 9. The evergreen Pete Sarson top scored for the visitors with 28 as three wickets apiece for Sean Thornton and Kamesh Ganti went some way to seeing Willoughby close the game down in their favour and bring the 2nd XI season to a close in suitable fashion.
