Andy Woolven gets Grassmoor off to a great start in win against Notts and Arnold Amateur
A swashbuckling innings from Andy Woolven  set Grassmoor Works CC away at a tremendous pace as they chased down a modest target of 120 to beat visitors Notts and Arnold Amateur CC by six wickets, writes Martin Roberts.
A solid start from the visitors if somewhat slow saw Jack Taylor  and Rayhan Don  give a good account before David Spendlove and John Kenward Nash accounted for their wickets in this Bassetlaw and District Division 2 encounter.
There was little further resilience with just two players entering double figures Ravi Don  looked sharp but also fell to Kenward-Nash and Jins Jacob Saju  lower down the order chipped in to the total.
Top of the bowlers were Adam Bedford with 4 for 23, closely followed by Kenward-Nash 3 for 20, Spendlove 2 for 25 with John Donaldson chipping in with the remaining wicket.
A blistering start in reply for Grassmoor with the first ten overs going for over 60 saw Woolven and John Donaldson  set the base firmly in the Barnes Park sides favour both fell bowled by the enthralling Saju.
Grassmoor captain Bedford  added a stabilising innings to his wicket haul that got them over the line, leaving both himself and Woolven to discuss their respective man of the match claims.
