The weekend saw all 3 teams in action spread over 3 days! First team started the weekend well winning their 20/20 game with Aman Arora scoring 63 and Leighton Friend 47 forming backbone of formidable 171 off just 20 overs v Thornham. This total proved more than enough.
On Saturday the 1st team had Mangaliso Moshele on international duty, but had the luxury of another international cricketer in their ranks. Simon Kerrigan, who played an Ashes test for England was the stand in professional. Despite his 2 wickets and 22 runs he could not prevent Edgeworth winning comfortably in the league game as 252-5 played 125 all out. It had all looked so promising for Unsworth as Todd Casey (39) & Shaun Kenworthy (35) had put on 65 for 1st wicket, but a dramatic collapse ensued!
The 2nd team did better beating Failsworth Macedonia by 3 wickets. Rob Connor (4-35) was pick of bowlers as opposition posted a respectable 152. In reply captain Tom Earnshaw (50) & Danny Creer (46*) saw the visitors home with a number of overs to spare. Thanks to Pete & Gill Long for ball sponsorship!
The 3rd team fell narrowly short on Sunday to Stand, chasing 173 off 40 overs, they ended up on 160-8. Mason Garnett 2-25 & 25 with bat and veteran Gary Jones who scored 47 were the pick of the home side’s performers. Thanks again to Pete & Gill Long for match ball sponsor, as well as Jean Joynson & Aman Arora the week previous!
