“NCSL” DIVISION G
“JRL ESTATES” DIVISION H
“CARLTON CAR CENTRE” DIVISION J
The mathematics were quite simple all Clifton had to do was to win their final game and hope Keyworth lost to secure promotion and at tea interval that all seemed to be going to plan as Oxton were bowled out for 122-10 with Haider Ali taking 3-22 but then Mark Groom produced probably the most important spell of bowling he has ever delivered taking 7-17 and with James Bailey 3-30 it meant Clifton were dismissed scoring just 47-10 in 14.5 overs.
Meanwhile Keyworth 50-10 were destroyed by the bowling of David Sells 6-17 & Syed Hossain 4-30 as Chilwell 51-2 secured the second promotion spot after being third favourites at the start of the day
