Eagles had a disappointing loss at St James going down by 47 runs.

Winning the toss and asking the hosts to bat, Eagles got off to a good start as Imran Mehboob showcased his skills by picking up 3-23 of fhis 12 overs.

This left the home side in trouble at 75-5 but a solid 70 not out from Jack Forman took the final score to a challenging 184 all out.

The visitors’ reply never got going as regular wicket by Sam Rattle who claimed 5-36 and Micheal Murray 3-40 skittled out the vistors for 137.

Eagles will look back at this game and know they wasted many chances in the field as well as batting mistakes which cost them the game.

They will look for a better performance all round this week when they host Ansty at Cherry Lane.
