CBH 306-1 dec (47 overs), Marple 86 (24.2 overs). Chester wo by 220 runs
The big guns well and truly fired as Chester sunk Marple by 220 runs to go second in the ECB Cheshire Premiership.
Winning the toss, Warren Goodwin and Rick Moore tore into the Marple bowling, piling on 306-1 before declaring after just 47 overs.
Chester's top order have had a decent couple of weeks. Goodwin's unbeaten153 followed his 108 last week as he hit four 6s and twenty 4s. Moore's 107 included six 6s and ten 4s as runs rained down on Filkins Lane with the pair adding 221 for the first wicket before Moore holed out to long off.
The declaration was worthy with 306-1 on the board and the Chester bowlers wasted no time in further tormenting the opposition. With the dangerous Andrew Hall out early, wickets fell regularly, Andrew Paulett top scoring with 29 as Jack Williams spun himself 4-15, George McCormick 3-16 and Lloyd Aspen 2-29. Marple were all out for 86, Chester getting home by a mammoth 220 runs.
Next week sees a trip to Timperley.
