- Whiteleas and Harton CC suffered a disappointing defeat away at Esh Winning.
- However, Esh Winning turned the screw, thanks to Eddie Watson (5-32), who finally removed the defiant Beadle (38) as well as the key wicket of Bilawal Iqbal (22).
- Esh then soon knocked off the winning runs, with Stu Hall making 42 not out and man-of-the-match Watson bashing out a total of 64, which included seven sixes.
- The Second XI enjoyed an excellent victory at home to Esh Winning in a low-scoring encounter.
- However, Esh found the bowling of Rian (6-34) too hot to handle as they were all bowled out for 74 to give Leas a 20 point return.
