A century from Chris Dring steered Spalding Town Sunday 1st to a six-wicket win over Whittlesey in Rutland League Division Three.
Dring rolled back the years with a magnificent 111 not out to help Town chase down Whittlesey 1st’s 176-6 at the Memorial Field to get their season off to a flying start on Sunday.
Harry DeCamps (3-37) and Josh Lawrence (2-17) impressed with the ball as Town limited their visitors to below 200, which earned them three of the five bowling points.
Opener Clive Evans (47), number three Dave Walker (27) and Ian Jones (29 not out) were the top scorers for Whittlesey.
Spalding’s reply was all about Dring, as he smashed an unbeaten 111 from just 80 balls with 12 fours and four sixes.
Peter Cook also added 36 and Jonah Gill made 14 as Town closed on 177-4 in 31 overs to collect 18 points in total.
Spalding Sunday 1st host Weldon this Sunday (1pm).
