Losper stars for Cromford

CROMFORD Meadows 1sts recorded a fine eight-wicket victory over visitors Staveley Welfare on Saturday in Division 6N of the Derbyshire County League.

Batting first, Staveley could only make 131-9 from their 46 overs with Darryl Losper recording fine figures of 4-20.

The South African all-rounder then starred with the bat too, hitting 73, well supported by Simon Bunting’s unbeaten 43, as Cromford Meadows got home in 34 overs for the loss of just two wickets.

This weekend, the firsts travel to take on Chesterfield Barbarians while the seconds are at home to Eckington in Division 10N.
