    made a career best 34 not out The 19 year old passed Phil DeFreitas previous best score by a No 10 81 against Durham in 2000 but fell agonisingly short of his century as the returning Footitt got one through his defences to finish with career best figures of 7 71 Derbyshire had a solid start to their first innings ending on 54 without loss so will resume 275 in arrears Leicestershire showed three changes from the team that lost their last game to Essex as Chappell Freckingham and Lewis Hill came in for Rob Sayer Wayne White and Charlie Shreck The team were invited to bat first by Derbyshire skipper Wayne Madsen and Eckersley struck four early boundaries as the team got off to a flying start Footitt then pegged pack progress with a burst of four wickets in the space of 22 deliveries starting by bowling two batsmen in as many balls Angus Robson 8 was first to go as Footitt nipped one back to disturb the timbers after the opener had opted to play no stroke The bowler then removed the off stump of Redfern 0 with another highly accurate delivery The left armer claimed a third wicket when Cosgrove 3 got a leading edge to Ben Slater at mid on before Eckersley who hit another quartet of fours recorded a superb 40 ball fifty However with no further addition he clipped Footitt to Chesney Hughes at square leg to leave Leicestershire at 73 4 Ali and Niall O Brien 19 steadied the ship with a fifth wicket stand of 44 but it was ended on the stroke of lunch Footitt may have come out of the attack having moved to 70 wickets for the summer but he was still in the thick of the action taking a catch off Ben Cotton at mid on following another leading edge The score was 117 5 at that point and lunch was taken slightly early because of a shower Play was able to resume at 1 50pm and the extended break allowed Footitt to have an immediate burst after his earlier ten over spell He completed a five for by having Lewis Hill 5 held by Billy Godleman in the cordon and a sixth wicket followed Footitt s 250th in Championship cricket as Ben Raine 6 edged behind to Tom Poynton Ali made his way to 37 and although he was dropped at point off Tom Milnes he edged the very next delivery from the seamer to Poynton It was a first Derbyshire wicket for Milnes who yesterday signed a permanent deal having previously joined on loan from Warwickshire Leicestershire were now struggling at 154 8 but Chappell played confidently alongside Rob Taylor and the pair added 71 by tea The duo were happy to play their shots in moving to 33 apiece before the interval Although Chappell was dropped on that score at mid off in the first over after tea Rob Taylor s innings ended four runs

    ball half century that included eight boundaries and finished on 53 not out Two wickets fell as Jesse Ryder completed his five for in his first over of the morning by having Wayne White 2 caught at the wicket and Raine 4 became James Foster s fifth victim as Jamie Porter picked up his first reward Rob Taylor hit a four to record County s second batting point and Mark Cosgrove called in his batsmen Essex then reached 18 0 in their first innings before declaring with Dan Lawrence on 14 and Nick Browne 4 Ned Eckersley and Angus Robson played a number of flowing strokes around the ground at the start of Leicestershire s second innings They put on an opening stand of 44 before Eckersley 30 edged Tom Westley s first delivery to Ryder at slip Robson 26 and Dan Redfern 15 took the score to 73 1 at lunch and Leicestershire pulled the plug during the interval There was a positive start to the chase by Dan Lawrence who hit five fours in scoring 28 off 31 balls but his innings came to an end as Robson took a catch at first slip off Raine A second wicket arrived when Westley drove White straight to substitute fielder Lewis Hill at point before a third wicket stand developed between Browne and Ravi Bopara Opener Browne moved to 1 000 LV CC runs for the summer with a drive through the off side for four The opener went on to hit a four and six to deep mid wicket in Rob Sayer s first over and then recorded a 79 ball half century with a further boundary in that region Sayer was unfortunate not to pick up a success shortly before tea as Bopara edged but Robson was wrong footed at slip He survived and was on 34 alongside Browne 59 as Essex went in on 129 2 requiring a further 178 from a minimum of 35 overs The alliance was worth 73 at the interval and it moved into three figures in the final session Bopara recorded his 50 from 66 balls with an elegant piece of timing through the covers and another four followed off the next delivery this time through power as a hook split two fielders in the deep Twelve came off Mark Cosgrove s first over as Essex continued to put their foot on the gas and a Browne pull for four in the next offering took him into the nineties The left hander went to post his fifth century of the season from 134 balls the landmark containing 15 fours and a maximum A sumptuous cover drive from Bopara then found the fence to take the alliance beyond 150 but he departed when Raine returned as O Brien took a regulation catch behind the stumps Ryan ten Doeschate got moving with a brace of sweetly struck boundaries in the 49 th over and Essex required 77 when the last hour was called The

    10 30am Eckersley hit a couple of nicely timed boundaries but then nicked Jesse Ryder through to James Foster having made 13 Dan Redfern 0 also fell victim to that partnership but in different fashion the keeper taking a brilliant one handed effort as the left hander flicked one down the leg side Cosgrove looked in good touch from the off four terrific strokes down the ground all racing to the boundary The partnership passed 50 before Robson who started the day requiring 29 to move into four figures reached the landmark for the second season running with a trademark cut to the fence The Leicestershire 100 came up as Robson clipped Graham Napier for four and a further boundary in the 29 th over driven exquisitely through extra cover brought the opener an 88 ball half century County went to lunch at 117 2 with Robson who found the boundary nine times in moving to 50 and Cosgrove 40 having shared 90 The break allowed Essex to regroup and the opener departed in the second over of the afternoon session without adding to his score Robson edged a defensive stroke and was caught at slip by Dan Lawrence off Ravi Bopara Cosgrove took his boundary tally into double figures with two consecutive leg side shots that were struck with real authority the second of which took him through to a 79 ball half century The captain went on to record 1 000 first class runs for the season with the 68 th run of the innings moving to the milestone courtesy of a booming cover drive that hit the advertising boards before anybody had blinked The players left the field shortly afterwards because of bad light with the score at 141 3 after 47 3 overs Tea was taken

    lead of 146 the Leicestershire openers went about extending the lead quickly but both departed within the first six overs Ned Eckersley 6 skied one in the air from the bowling of Liam Norwell and Benny Howell made up the ground to take a superb catch at mid wicket Norwell soon picked up his second wicket of the innings finding the edge of Angus Robson 4 with Gloucestershire s wicketkeeper Gareth Roderick taking a regulation catch Skipper Mark Cosgrove hit a brisk 21 off 23 balls before he attempted a big hit and was lbw to Howell although his side had now lengthened the lead to 200 at this stage Two big contributors from the first innings Redfern and Aadil Ali were now paired together and looked intent on scoring swiftly Unfortunately Ali 12 could not repeat his first innings heroics as he went to Kieran Noema Barnett who took an instinctive return catch in the final over before lunch With a declaration looming in the near future the Foxes finished the first session 87 4 with a lead of 233 runs Redfern continued with his offensive approach after lunch and hit several boundaries that went crashing to the ropes However he continued to lose partners as Niall O Brien 2 was caught and bowled by David Payne while Norwell 10 1 48 3 struck for a third time in the innings clean bowling Wayne White for 1 One man who was not feeling the pressure was Redfern who reached an attractive 62 ball half century that included seven fours but two more quick wickets fell in a Payne over to leave Leicestershire at 115 8 First Ben Raine was run out for 6 when he called for a tight second run however the fielder managed to quickly throw it in to the wicketkeeper to complete the dismissal The very next ball saw Clint McKay go as Payne 10 0 43 2 broke his defences and took out the off stump Number 10 batsman Rob Taylor 17 not out provided vital support to Redfern as the pair hit some valuable runs in extending the lead to 301 Redfern was eventually dismissed off the bowling of James Fuller when he edged behind to Roderick and that wicket brought about the declaration In response the visitors made a strong start with opening pairing Dent and Tavare bringing up their 50 partnership in the 12 th over to inject some real belief to their side They reached the tea interval at 58 without loss with a further 244 runs required to win the match In the final session of the match the openers reached a 100 partnership without playing any extravagant shots along the way Dent soon moved on to make his second half century of the match from just 68 balls before left arm seamer Taylor took the priceless wicket of Dent 52 caught and bowled It halted the Gloucestershire momentum with the score at 108 1 The new man in Roderick

    including two 40s against Gloucestershire at Cheltenham so I was pleased to tick that off especially at home in front of a decent crowd Earlier in the year we were struggling a bit with the bat but we ve worked very hard to put it right and I think the way just about everybody made a contribution shows Six partnerships of over 50 tells the story Leicestershire made a positive start in the morning with Dan Redfern playing some attacking shots and scoring fluently Meanwhile the nightwatchman Sayer was adding valuable runs at the other end in support However Redfern 49 fell just short of his half century when he was caught at cover by Peter Handscomb off the bowling of David Payne This continued the trend of the opening three partnerships putting on stands of 59 Soon after Sayer who had added a creditable 32 runs to his over night score of two was dismissed lbw by Hamish Marshall leaving Leicestershire at 197 4 Sayer s valuable knock of 34 was a career best In the next over Gloucestershire struck again and it was Payne who picked up his second wicket of the match as skipper Mark Cosgrove 12 flashed one straight at William Tavare who held on to a good catch at gully The visitors firmly had their tails up at this point and once again Payne 26 7 94 3 struck finding the edge of Niall O Brien 4 and wicketkeeper Gareth Roderick took a regulation catch behind the stumps With new pairing Ali and White looking to rebuild it was White who took the initiative as lead run getter and was scoring at more than a run a ball early on in his innings Rain arrived with one ball of the morning session remaining with the score 229 6 at the time The players returned at 2 05 after a slightly longer lunch than usual with 61 1 overs still scheduled to be bowled White continued his offensive approach after the interval including three well struck boundaries off one over to see Leicestershire past 250 A productive innings from White came to an end due to Norwell who had the new ball in hand and found the slightest edge off the bat as Roderick took another catch The new batsman McKay played a range of aggressive shots including a brace of cover drives that raced to the ropes and a fantastic four which flew straight down the ground over the bowler s head His innings ended on when edging to Chris Dent at second slip who hung on to give Norwell his fourth of the innings 30 5 97 4 Raine joined Ali at the crease who had quietly been going about his business and was moving closer to fifty The pair safely reached tea and Leicestershire were at 332 8 After the interval Ali scored his first LV CC 50 off 101 balls with a fifth four as he eclipsed his previous best of 42
