1st XI secure place in Prem 2

The 1st XI have achieved their goal of a top 5 finish and a place in the new Nottinghamshire Premier League Division 2 in 2022.

Needing a positive result at Calverton, a superb stand from skipper Ally Pettit (85) and Rhys Hayes (122*) set up Saad Naseem to smash 60 off 25 balls and a formidable 303-3 off 50 overs.

In reply Calverton made a real fist of it and were in the hunt before Saad took out the middle order leaving the hosts 34 short of victory.

The winning draw means that we finish 4th this season and will play in the new Prem2 next season alongside champions Balderton, Cavs and Carrington 2s and Collingham. Gedling & Sherwood who finished second, will play in the Premier League Division 1 next summer as Balderton are not eligible.

We will be joined by teams from the Bassetlaw and the bottom 2 in the current Premier League.
