CLIFTON made short work of bottom club Staveley Miners Welfare to notch up their second maximum-point haul in a row in Division One of the Derbyshire County League.

Having swept aside Sawley & Long Eaton Park the previous week, Clifton played host to host to Staveley at their Chapel Lane ground.

Despite losing the toss, the home side bowled out Staveley for 126 and then knocked off the target for the loss of only one wicket, to collect 27 points.

Campbell Ogilvie took the first three wickets Clifton on his way to figures of 3-40 from 13 overs.

Staveley top scorer Adam Wiles was the fourth man out, for 30, as he became Faisal Khan's first victim.

Edward Harvey (1-27) struck soon after to leave Staveley struggling on 87-5.

Khan then took over, taking the remaining five wickets to finish with excellent figures of 6-34 from 15 overs.

Clifton lost opener Will Wilson early on in their reply, for six, but Teddy James and skipper Matt Wilson put together a decisive unbroken stand of 114 for the second wicket.

James was not out 78 from 104 balls, with 10 fours, when victory came in the 35th over.

Wilson ended up unbeaten on 42 from 84 balls, with two fours.

Seventh-placed Clifton travel to Ilkeston Rutland, who are just below them in the table, on Saturday.

And they round off their league campaign on Sunday, at home to sixth-placed Cutthorpe.
