LODDON'S sixth game undefeated saw a confident start to the season as they beat Belton by 50 runs.

Belton put Loddon into bat first, and their opening bowlers made light work of Loddon's first four batsmen (K Jones 5, S Armiger 4, A Baker 1 and J Riseborough 0) for only 10 runs. K Pitman (4) was dismissed by a fantastic diving catch from point. D Debenham (42) and T Rowson (35) managed to hold the innings together and frustrate the Belton bowlers and push the run-rate.

C Baker (12) rotated the strike nicely. Loddon's youngest Batsman L Jones (2) showed some confident batting while G Clow (8) and B Martin (1) held onto their wickets to deny Belton of maximum bowling points and finish the innings on 144-9.

C Baker and D Debenham rapidly picked up three wickets between them. Debutant K Pitman blasted through the mid-order taking four wickets off nine overs for 25 runs while K Jones kept things tight from his end with 7.4 overs, five maidens, five runs and three wickets.
