Foxes thwarted by Yasim Murtaza
Whitmore 135/7 beat Elworth 131 all out by three wickets
Whitmore 20pts, Elworth 6pts.
Elworth and Whitmore were promoted to the Premier Division together in 2012. The ensuing five seasons saw their fortunes differ. Whitmore managed to stay in the top division while the Foxes returned to Division One straight away. Whitmore consolidated and while Elworth had a number of frustrating near misses before eventually regaining a Premier spot for 2018, last Saturday’s hosts thrived for a while. Third in 2014 and 2015 (Stone champions both years), they slipped back in 2016 only just surviving. Last year was better but 2018 has not been kind. They remain bottom after this victory over Elworth but look like facing a tense latter part of the season.
