LURGASHALL CC are celebrating winning division three of the I’Anson League.

Lurgashall finished the season in style with a six-wicket victory at home to Blackheath seconds.

Blackheath batted first and progressed slowly to 43 for two but the introduction of spinner Dan Dillon-Thiselton, who took four for seven in eight overs, saw them bowled out for 98.

Lurgashall lost three early wickets but two younger players Dominic Grove (19) and Darren Hodd (34no) steadied the boat and Tim Dixon finished it with a big six.

Seamus Lynch was top of the batting averages in the division for the season and Dillon-Thiselton top of the bowling.

Pictured are, front row, Nicky Clark (tea lady extraordinaire), Scott Evans, Adam Sharp, Seamus Lynch, Aaron Evans, Paul White, Vicki White (scorer); back row, Freddie Clark (mascot), Tim Dixon, Darren Hodd, Drew Clark, Dan Dillon-Thiselton, Dom Grove, Aaron Carter.

At Drew Clark’s feet is the Miller Cup, the division-three trophy. The Miller has been competed for every year since 1922, except for a short period during the Second World War.
