A tough test again after a disappointing result to Hucknull, playing another top side with top batting power.
After a steady start, the top order batsman got going hitting 16 runs two overs in a row, enter Jim Kirkham to remove the main threat, Rhys Hayes, on 87 followed quickly by Ben Shaw for 43.
Good backup bowling from Drinkwater and Aaman Singh, good performances all round in the field saw the top batting side to 249.
A poor start from Newbs, Cliff and Max looked grim at 65 for 3 off 15, steady batting from Dan Jones, Drinkwater and Mani before the rain came, had us set up for a tense finish
After nearly an hour off for rain Cope fell early which left Aaman and Kirkham to salvage a losing draw with 12 over remaining,
Aaman gets a wrong decision in the 47th, caught behind off nothing and Andy Laughton LBW in the final over saw us lose but come away with hard fought 5 points
Big game vs Cavs next week!
