His best ever figures in senior cricket for Beverley came at the perfect time as he ran through visiting Tadcaster Magnet, bowling them out for just 80 to gain a remarkable 38 run victory.
It was obviously tough going for the batsmen on a pitch livened up by rain and exploited fully by the bowlers. Only Tim Smith with 25 made any real mark on the scorebook as Beverley could only make 118-9, which owed a lot to some defiant tail-end batting.
The batsmen’s had work was put into context as Tadcaster Magnet succumbed to the skills of Nicholson and fell well short of their target.
