Willoughy look set for mid-table finish after Castlethorpe defeat

Steve Carpenter 7th Aug, 2016 Updated: 27th Oct, 2016

A mid-table berth looks the likely outcome to Willoughby’s topsy turvy season in the South Northants League Division One after they were beaten by 22 runs in their penultimate away fixture of the season at Castlethorpe.

Batting first, the hosts set a decent target for the visitors to chase as they made 173 all out with Stuart Walding hitting 46 and Waqar Ali Asghar added 35.

Nick Crane continued his fine debut season for Willoughby with the ball that sees him continue to be the division’s leading wicket-taker after another fine return of 3 for 37 as the pick of the visitors attack.

In reply, Willoughby saw opener Ian Andrews top score with a typically well-crafted 35, and although Sean Thornton – promoted to the 1st XI, added 32, the visitors were to fall 22 runs short at the close, reaching 151 for 7.
