2nd XI Crowned Champions
Tuesday, 16 September 2014

The 2nd XI were crowned 2nd XI Championship winners on Sunday evening, exactly one year on from relegation from the Premier Division.  The Moonrakers guaranteed their return to the top flight with victories over Ashton and Milnrow, the latter being particularly pleasant for skipper Rob Bennett, whose unbeaten 108 sealed the victory on the day he received the Championship Trophy from Umpire's Secretary Neville Fletcher.2nd XI Champions

 
Weekend Round Up
Monday, 25 August 2014

There were mixed fortunes for all three sides this weekend.

On Saturday, the 1st XI were heavily defeated by 6 wickets at Crompton, being dismissed for just 84 runs. Sunday didn't fair much better either with visitors Unsworth defeating the Moonrakers by 9 wickets at Towncroft after dismissing the home side for just 131 runs - the only highlight being a stubborn 49 from veteran Steve Davey.

Despite the 1st XI's woes, the 2nd XI continued their march towards promotion with decisive victories over second placed Crompton on Saturday and third placed Royton on Sunday.  On Saturday, the visitors were held to 191-9 from their 50 overs and in reply the Moonrakers knocked it off with the loss of 7 wickets - mainly thanks to a fine all round performance by Tom Rutter who hit 40 not out to go with his 3 wickets.  On Sunday at Royton, Middleton posted 168-8 from their 50 overs and dismissed the home side for 102 - stretching their lead at the top of the Second Division to 11 points.

The 3rd XI lost their 20/20 match at home to Heywood on Friday evening, as well as their League match at Newton Heath on Sunday.

There is only 1 day of fixtures this weekend - on Sunday there is a reversal of fixtures with the 2nd XI hosting Royton at Towncroft and the 1st XI away at Unsworth.  Both games begin at 12:45.

 
Second Eleven Round Up
Monday, 18 August 2014

The Second Eleven stretched their unbeaten run to 12 games with two convincing victories at the weekend.

On Saturday, they welcomed Ashton to Towncroft. The visitors batted first and posted a total of 106, with Middleton claiming the last wicket with the final ball of the innings. Steve Holmes being the main destroyer with five wickets for the cost of 19 runs.

Batting second, Middleton reached the total with few difficulties, losing four wickets in the process. Pete Foden top scoring with a quick-fire 37.

Sunday brought about the trip to Monton and Weaste. The Salford side were invited to set a target, and were all out for 129 with Holmes claiming four scalps.

In reply, Middleton once again looked a consummate ease in reaching the target with 23 overs left. Pete Foden top scoring with 45.
