THERE was double disappointment for Leek 2XI over the weekend, with defeats by Bignall End and Hem Heath Forsbrook.

Leek were skittled out for just 75 by Bignall End on Saturday, as Dave Quinton picked up 5-9.

The visitors then had few concerns in knocking off the required runs, with Joel Quick living up to his name with a rapidly-accrued 24.

Leek then suffered a 32-run loss to Hem Heath Forsbrook 24 hours later.

Daniel Reed top-scored with 32 in Hem Heath Forsbrook's 129 all out.

James Nixon captured 5-54 for Leek, but once again, their batting let them down.

Abeed Akhtar compiled 35 but Muhammad Rahim's superb 9-21 dismissed the hosts for 97.

That completed back-to-back wins for Hem Heath Forsbrook, who triumphed by five wickets at Endon on Saturday.

Steve Joddrell's 45 not out was the cornerstone of Endon's 149-7, in which Alan Whitehurst took 4-59.

A well-constructed 86 from Chris Simpson had Hem Heath Forsbrook heading in the right direction to complete a 20-point haul.

Oakamoor were emphatic winners in their home meeting with Betley.

Ian Jackson's 56 was ably supported by 32 from Joseph Emery, as Oakamoor amassed 182 all out.

New-ball duo James Austin and James Hancock took 5-40 and 3-12 respectively.

Carl Bond took the overall bowling plaudits, however, picking up 6-28 to bundle out Betley for 61 in reply.
