Fenner sit at summit of Newland Evening League
FENNER are the clear leaders in the Newland Evening League after their six-wicket win over Hull CC.
Hull's total of 114 for 7 in their 13-over innings at Marfleet was based around an excellent knock of 70 not out from Martin Watkins (6 fours and 2 sixes), with Tom Jennings making 15.
Fenner under-15s captain Mark Johnson took 3 for 20 at the top of the innings, whilst Phil Rusling's 3 for 26 was a bonus towards the end.

In reply, Fenner captain Joe Elliott hit a superb 71 not out from just 48 balls, including eight fours and one six, whilst sharing a second-wicket stand of 79 with Dean Johnson (19) to lead his side to a winning score of 118 for 4 with 15 balls to spare. Luke Andrew (2 for 17) picked up two wickets for Hull.
Defeats for previous joint-leaders Patrington and Beverley put a dent in their title ambitions.
Reigning champions Patrington were soundly beaten at Cottingham, who totalled 132 for 9 in their allotted overs, led by a classy half century from skipper Will Rhodes (58) and support from Jamie Richards (28). Glen Ratcliffe picked up the impressive figures of 3 for 11 from his one over for the visitors.
Patrington were skittled in reply for a paltry 64, with no visiting batsman coming to terms with the home bowling attack of Danny Furlong (3 for 16), Will Rhodes (2 for 17) and Rob Moy (2 for 16) as Cottingham emerged as winners by 68 runs.
Andrew Simpson (28) and Peter Shally (33 not out) led Humbleton to 87 for 2 and an easy eight-wicket win at Beverley Town, who earlier in the evening had been restricted to a paltry 86 for 7 in 13 overs, with D. Angelo (2 for 23) the pick of the Humbleton bowling and Olly Grantham and Alex Nightingale top scoring with 22 runs apiece.
There are two first round Phoenix Cup fixtures next week, with last year's beaten finalists Humbleton at home to Fenner and Beverley at home to Patrington.
