Sat 17 Jun 13:00 - Cheshire County Cricket League - 2nd XI Premier Division

Sunny Delight with sixth straight win.

Griffiths (97) and Towned (83) set a commanding 270 before Charlie (6 for 46) bowls

A scorcher of a day met the sides at Filkins Lane as the 2's took on Upton for the first time in a decade in league cricket. Sam returned and a debut for Reg Wyatt. A won toss and batting on the runway that is the home wicket. Griff and Jamo set to work. Driving and square-cutting anything loose in a rapid start before Jamo was out caught behind. Joe and George both perished quickly and at 60 odd for 3 the crucial part of the game had arrived. Alex Towned has been excellent in recent weeks with bat and ball. He and Griff laid the foundation for the win with a superb, entertaining partnership characterised by booming drives down the ground form Wiggy and smart running. Both men notched up 50's in smart time and both looked destined to go through to their hundreds. But it wasn't to be. Wiggy drove one straight at cover for a classy 83. Then Griff decided to try a straight drive for six on 97 and was bowled. Griff went to 500 league runs exactly for the season. A flurry at the end including Reg Wyatt's first runs in second team cricket and 270 declared in 42 overs. The skipper had suggested 280 in 40: not a bad effort!

A tea of beige. Chips, cheese, egg, white bread and quiche. Cake too then out to get on with the trickiest of tasks at CBH; ten wickets. Who would step up?

Wiggy and Sam got on with the job and Sam got the ball rolling with two in an over both to catches behind. Wiggy bowled tidily but in truth he was shattered! Poor lad. Charlie came on and with the first team watching/drinking on the boundary, the youngster took the responsibility of getting the required wickets. When Sam was replaced by Dan Riley he bagged a wicket immediately with a smart catch from Charlie. Another for the skipper caught by Reg at mid-on. A few chip shots over fielders and a mix-up between Dan and Wiggy frustrated but Charlie hit his straps and took the next six wickets. Some super flight and control allied with close catchers saw Charlie take his 6 wickets with some good catches as well as 3 bowled. Excellent stuff from Charlie with all bowlers under pressure to deliver. Fishy unrequited as Charlie took his 19th for the season. Marvellous scenes as the players marched off the field to watch captain Ste Treen go through to his maiden ton in leading the 3's home. With news coming in that both Toft and Neston had drawn, top of the league spot looked likely. Toft away next week...

MotM - Charlie Fleet. An excellent spell from the left armer.
Dotd - Joe Killoran AGAIN. All manner of reasons added mainly glove related.
