Seconds set 417

Second XI Friendly: Day 3 of 4: Derbyshire 277 (Reed 4-72) and 404-8 dec (Sayer 5-115) lead Leicestershire 265 (Robson 115) and 35-0 by 381 runs.

Leicestershire were set 417 in the Second XI four-day friendly against Derbyshire at the County Ground.

Derbyshire started the day on 59-1 and moved to 404-8 declared in their second innings. Young off-spinner Rob Sayer (pictured right) took an excellent haul of 5-115, and County ended proceedings on 35 without loss.

Leicestershire will therefore require a further 382 to win on the final day, Angus Robson and Michael Thornely will resume in the morning.

Billy Godleman was the star for the hosts with 115 while Greg Cork (77) and Wes Durston (70) made half-centuries and Scott Elstone (41), Tom Knight and Luke Thomas (34) also chipped in.

Thomas and Godleman extended their stand by 10 to 49 before the former was caught by Thornely off Sayer. Elstone and Godleman then added 105, the former Essex and Middlesex player moving to 50 in the process, before Karl Turner snapped up a slip catch to dismiss Elstone.

Godleman was on 85 at the fall of the third wicket on 174, and he reached the landmark in a partnership of 81 with captain Durston. The left-hander was then trapped leg before by Sayer.

Durston reached 50 as part of a stand worth 56 with Cork before his knock was ended by Turner, Tom Moores taking a catch at the wicket with the total on 311.

Wicket-keeper Harvey Hosein was also held by Moores, this time off Sayer, before Cork moved beyond 50 in a seventh wicket stand worth 84 with Tom Knight.

Knight became Sayer's fifth victim to an Aadil Ali catch while Cork was then caught by Thornely off Dominic Reed to prompt a declaration from Durston.

Bowling figures: Nathan Buck 13-0-62-0, Reed 21.2-0-96-2, Charlie Taylor 5-1-23-0, Sayer 34-4-115-5, Robson 4-1-3-0, Atif Sheikh 8-0-49-0, Ali 1-0-5-0, Turner 8-0-29-1.

Robson (18*, 50b) and Thornely (11*, 40b) then batted out the final hour to give Leicestershire a solid start to their second innings. Derbyshire's figures were: Alasdair Evans 6-0-18-0, Ben Cotton 6-1-6-0, Jonathan Marsden 2-0-6-0, Durston 1-1-0-0.
