Mike Holt is entitled to a new nickname after last Saturday’s match at Leek.
To his early bowling salvo, which reduced Leek to 10/3, he added a match-saving 13-ball innings of 0 not out, as the home bowlers strove to remove the final Foxes wicket. So his contribution at either end of the game might reasonably see him dubbed “Bookend”.
