United bow to pace of teenage strike star

APPLEBY Frodingham pace bowler Jack Forrester, 19, recorded career-best figures of 7-48 in 14.4 overs in a five-wicket win over bottom of the table Sheffield United.

Sri Lankan Isuru Jayakody opened the Sheffield innings and made 29 as they were bowled out for 143 in 51.4 overs. Bilal Anjam took 4-33 in 6.3 overs for Sheffield but an opening partnership of 86 by Duncan Heath and Matt Morland made victory for the home side inevitable. Heath completed his 50 and Morland contributed 40.

South African paceman Tumi Masekela took 5-35 in 10.5 highly effective overs for Cleethorpes, who won by seven wickets after Doncaster fell for 88 in 26.5 overs, with 14-year-old medium-pacer Tom Keast assisting Masekela by taking 3-26 in seven overs. Graeme Attenborough was left undefeated on 35.
