BUCKLEY 3RD XI (14) 232-4 NORTHOP HALL 4TH XI (1) 150-10

What a day for Buckley’s 16-year-old Jack Gibson who scored a senior career best 95 and then took four wickets in his team’s home win over Northop Hall.

Bucks were put into bat at Lane End and Gibson’s innings was the main highlight, the teenage talent hitting 15 fours and a six.

Mike Wooton made 46 and Jack Williams 39 as the hosts set a formidable 232-4 off 40 overs.

Gibson then opened the bowling and ended up with figures of 4-28 off nine overs as Hall were dismissed for 150.
