First published in Sport

Table topping St Gluvias travelled to Crofty Holmans in Division 2 West and arrived to face 9 players, Crofty winning the toss and electing to bat struggled against the impressive Saints.

Former St Gluvias player Lee Caddy was caught by Callum Hinchley for 11 off of Scott Kellows bowling with the score on 15 before Gareth Mankee was bowled by Scott Kellow for 4 as Crofty found themselves 34-2 from 8 overs.

Ryan Downing and Alan Shears took the score to 61 before Downing was trapped LBW by Andrew Julian for a gritty 11.

Shears followed 1 run later for 21 as Julian bowled an impressive spell of 3 maidens in a row accounting for the wicket of the captain as he bowled him.

Crofty then lost Dylan Caddy for 3 as Julian's determined display continued Crofty 65-5 from 20.

The score was at 99 before the tail of Crofty was wrapped up, Callum Hinchley first having Michael Schottel caught by Andrew Julian then bowling Adam Kevern.

Richard Kellow got Stephen Ladner LBW for 0 leaving Liam Mankee 21 not out and Crofty 101 all out.

In response St Gluvias made it to 36 without loss from the first 4 overs before Jake Preston (18) was caught behind by Liam Mankee off of Lee Caddy's bowling.

Richard Kellow followed an over later for 11 as Schottell caught him off of Ryan Downings bowling. Matt Julian was then bowled by Lee Caddy for 4 and St Gluvias were 43-3 inside 6 overs.

Josh Kelly and Scott Kellow fought back taking the score to 85 before Kelly was caught behind by Liam Mankee off of Gareth Mankee's bowling. He then repeated the trick to claim skipper Jon Udy's wicket for 1 before he caught and bowled Scott Kellow for 21. St Gluvias 97-6 chasing 102.

Jack Hesketh was then bizarrely stumped by Liam Mankee off of Gareth Mankee as the bowler bowled a wide, Hesketh walked from his crease and was stumped out for 0.

Andrew Julian shortly followed without a run as he was caught and bowled and Gareth Mankee's impressive figures of 5-11 had done the damage.

Callum Hinchley however calmly stroked Lee Caddy for 4 and St Gluvias won but not in the comfortable fashion they would've liked and dropping what could be important points.

On Monday, St Gluvias' scheduled game with second place side Paul was cancelled due to heavy rainfall.
