Ouch! That Hurt But We'll Battle Back!

pavilion view.jpgBEATEN BUT NOT BOWED!

MIDDLETON lost out against Milnrow but still remain in with a chance of making the CLL's top eight, writes Steve Bott.

The Towncroft side were bowled out for 106 and the Ladybarn boys hit 110 for five.

It leaves Middleton ten points behind Clifton, five behind Monton but with only two points separating Middleton and Royton Steve Davey's men are still in there fighting.

Saturday's game at Unsworth was called off and the Seconds are in action in the Burton Cup final at Heywood weather permitting this afternoon starting at 1pm.

2nd team action shot.jpgFANTASTIC SEASON!


IT has been a tremendous season - due in no small part to the role played by professional Michael Smith.

Some moaners have been heard to say that if the team do not make the top eight for the big cut when the new format comes into play next season this season will be a season wasted. NONSENSE!

The last two seasons have been Middleton's best for over 70 years and anyone who tries to belittle that should hand back their membership card immediately.

And if this and last term have been that good then Smith has also climbed to the peak of the pros' list at Towncroft.

Basil D'Oliveira, Reuven Peiris and one or two others would no doubt welcome Smithy aboard their VIP carriage.

To average over 1500 runs every season takes some doing - but that is pretty much what Smith has done, not just with Middleton but also at Bacup on a high rise track that was nowhere near as good as ours at Towncroft.

That is why he joined us two years ago and he has more than made his mark on and off the pitch as a great pro, batsman, coach, leader and motivator on the pitch.

I am sure Middleton skipper Steve Davey, another superb Middleton CC club man, would be the first to acknowledge the help and asssitance he has had from Smith and we wish Michael well on his return to South Africa and fervently hope he does well in his chosen role there.

Rumour has it that he is in line for a top job back home but he won't know for a few months yet. If he gets it I understand there is one proviso - he doesn't appoint Kevin Pietersen as his right-hand man!

Go to it Smithy!

No surprise that Middleton's CLL game at Littleborough in the shadow of the Pennines was hit by rain this afternoon and called off. If you are going to get wet you can guarantee it will be there on one side of that hill or the other!
