Local cricket: Town suffer at the seaside

DONCASTER Town’s disappointing start to the new season continued as they suffered a fifth straight league defeat at Cleethorpes before being bundled out of the League Cup at Harrogate.

Nick Morley took his side to the seaside on Saturday boosted by his team’s thrilling win over Papplewick & Linby in the ECB National Knockout.

But they had no answer to a Cleethorpes team that have won four out of four and who coasted to a nine wicket win at Chichester Road.
