Weekend Round Up PDF Print E-mail
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.
