The absence of county players Ben Slater and Matt Critchley showed again as Chesterfield lost by 75 runs in another poor result.

Ticknall CC totalled 240-5 and in reply Chesterfield made 165, including 34 wides, as they lost in the Derbyshire Premier League.

Batting first, Ticknall struggled for the first 20 overs when the opening bowling attack again restricted a side to fewer than 50 in that time.

Josh Savage and Andrew Parkin–Coates again worked well in tandem with Kieron Garside out through injury.

Parkin-Coates bowled his 15 overs in one spell, taking 1-44.

Ticknall, at one stage 48-3, were helped by 55 from Tom Taylor that took them to 166-5.

James Hollingsworth joined Aidan Wheeler in a devastating unbeaten stand of 74, taking Ticknall to a formidable 240 – 5.

In reply, only four Chesterfield batsmen managed to get to double figures. There were 63 extras.

David Hunt (22) was unlucky to be out to a sensational catch by Pal Borrington and Alex Hibbert produced some great shots before falling for 28.

Parkin–Coates (14) and Tim Kirk (19) were the other two batsmen to reach double figures. Sam Trotman claimed 4-33 for Ticknall.
