Week 15

In week 15 we saw another change at the top, a 630 run thriller and some heavy victories.

Roe Green and Prestwich played out a thriller at Greenleach Lane where it was the home side who chased 319 with one wicket remaining. Prestwich captain Martin Walters hit 114 and Dan Pawson reached 83 in the first innings as they amassed 318/5 from their 50 overs. Dan Cooper’s 81 got the run chase off to an excellent start, before number 5 Luke Williams, who had taken 4 first innings wickets, pushed Roe Green towards the finishing line. Wickets tumbled at the other end, with 2 wickets falling in the last two overs, but it was Williams who hit the winning runs with 3 balls and only 1 wicket to spare – he had reached 126* from only 78 balls.

Clifton’s tenure at the top of the table was ended as Glodwick looked to kick-start the back end of their season with a 4 wicket win at Manchester Rd. Arkam Zeer took 4/13 as the league’s top side were bowled out for 112 in 43.1 overs – a target that proved to be not enough as Glodwick got over the winning line despite collapsing from 80/2 to 97/6. Denton St Lawrence returned to the summit after they eased to victory over 2016 champions Flixton. Mark Dillnutt scored 83 from just 59 balls as DSL reached 251/7 from 50 overs – and only 2 batsman reached double figures in Flixton’s reply of 81.

Greenfield fought back superbly to earn a valuable 5 points away at Astley & Tyldesley. Greenfield just passed 200 from their allotted overs at 202/9, but A&T were in a strong position at 168/5 with the best part of 10 overs remaining. But a late Greenfield resurgence, with the wickets shared, saw A&T bowled out inside 48 overs 11 short of their target. Heyside thrashed Woodbank on the road to move to within one win of second place. No batsman reached 50 but Heyside scored 230/9 despite Ryan Barker’s 5/70, but Woodbank could only score 69 between them, with Tom Avery taking 6/52. Moorside continued to move towards securing their safety with a crushing 174 run win over Egerton. Jurie Snyman scored 89 in a 174 run victory, with Egerton failing to reach three figures in response to 269/6.
