Butlers wins over Newcastle team
(Sports Page) Rain put a damper on action in the Highlights International tape ball league on Sunday 20th October but one match was still played.
Butlers came up against the Newcastle team and in batting first, chalked up an impressive 128 for 3 from their allotted 10 overs. The innings was dominated by some excellent batting by Winston Sutton and Pedro Jeffers.
The Newcastle batsmen failed to string any meaningful partnerships together and eventually fell short in the run chase.
