Both the 1st and 2nd team suffered narrow losses to Woodhouses on the 2nd weekend of the GMCL season. At the Den, Unsworth restricted Woodhouses to just over 90 all out. It is the first time the teams had meet at senior level for nearly 30 yrs, Michael Atherton played against us then! Ian Hall was pick of bowlers with 5 wickets, but a number of bowlers were used and all contributed. Unfortunately this proved too much for Unsworth who fell all out about 20 short, disappointingly. Overseas amateur Leighton Friend was the pick of the home side’s batsmen.
Over at Woodhouses the twos posted 164 in their 45 overs, Steve Earnshaw & Adam Earnshaw scoring either side of 50 runs each respectively. Steve batting sensibly for a number of overs, Adam coming in at the end with a series of boundaries in quick succession. A tense game ensued, but the opposition won by 3 wickets with a handful of overs to spare.
Thanks to Dave Joynson for the 1st team ball sponsor. This Saturday sees twos at home to Heywood on Saturday, and third team at home to Nelson on Sunday. Please come down and support the bar will be open, and Sky Sports on the TV. The club will be open on Friday night as usual for junior training from 615 also.
