7.5 Nottinghamshire, 7.5 Derbyshire.

but have a great desire to win.
Great performances from Adam Dorricott, Tom Hamson, Reece Samson, James
Booth and Sam Horsley, who incidentally went out last group in the morning

opponent - fighting spirit at its best!
We are now second in the league with 2 matches to play. Our next being
against the league leaders Warwickshire at Wollaton Park on Sunday 5th

supporters from across the county to come and cheer us on and witness some
