Charity fifty helps Seconds bounce back to winning ways

Joe Charity’s fine all round season continued as the right hander notched an unbeaten 73 from 74 balls as the Seconds cantered to an eight wicket win over Loughborough Town Seconds.

The home side had earlier been restricted to 121 for 8 from their reduced 39 overs with Steven Ingram (3-18), Matt Ellis (2-24) and Sam Gale (1-28) sending down thirty overs between them for just 70 runs.

Charity played second fiddle to Chris Yates (16) in an opening stand of 31 before dominating the next eight overs as he posted 34 out of a stand of 46 with skipper Micky Ruddle (10) to see his side to 77 for 2.

The remaining 45 runs came in rapid time as he and Jack Ford (16) posted exactly 50 in six overs to see Sileby home with Charity’s 73 not out coming from 74 balls with ten fours and a maximum.

That win keeps them in contention in fifth, 38 points shy of the Langtons and 24 short of second placed Uppingham Town going in to their home date with bottom of the table Houghton & Thurnby at Mill Lane next weekend.
