NETTLEBED ran out winners by five wickets at home to INVALIDS on Sunday.

Batting first the visitors looked to be set for a big total at 80-1 before Sam Butler removed J Hall for 32 and the introduction of Michael Butler who took 4-27 with some good swing bowling. Invalids ended their innings on 153-9.

In reply Nettlebed started badly at 5-2 before Ahmad Osman and Rob Simmons set about chasing the runs down and both looked well set until they fell in successive overs.

It was left to Chris Young and a quickfire 29 from Ryan Latter to see Nettlebed home.
