Weekend just gone saw 2 wins & 1 defeat for the senior teams. At the Den the 2nd team posted 160 off their 45 overs. Jack Ryder 47 & Tom Earnshaw 33 provided backbone of the innings batting sensibly. In reply Stretford posted just 75. Ryan Edge 5-21 and veteran Steve Earnshaw 4-7 were pick of the bowlers. Thanks to Bob & Sue Judge for the ball sponsor.
Over at Denton the oppo posted 183 in tricky batting conditions, a small ground but a decent total! Andy McGuiness with 4-14 was pick of bowlers, including the wicket of Denton's professional. Despite a 78 run opening partnership in 20 overs between Leighton Friend 53 & Steve Judge 15 the team collapsed, losing 6 wickets for 10 runs! The managed 124 in end. Well done to overseas amateur Leighton Friend, it was a good 50 with some powerful shots, straight drives and a swept 6 off the pro onto a car bonnet! Unfortunately, not enough!
On Sunday the 3rd team restricted Newton to just 132, "Jerry" Berry continued his recent good form for the club since his signing, and made short work of the chase with a blistering 78* as the runs were knocked off in just 15 overs.
