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!

Middleton v Radcliffe Saturday August 18 2012

Middleton Pick Up Vital Win


MIDDLETON picked up a vital four points at  Towncroft on Saturday in their quest to finish in the top eight of the division.

Skipper Steve Davey's 68 and another five-wicket haul from Dale Highton saw Middleton home with over 17 overs to spare.

Radcliffe's captain Mark Robinson won the toss and chose to bat but just as the players were coming out on to the field the dreaded rain started to fall. Fortunately it was only  a brief shower and play started 10 minutes later in a match reduced to 48 overs.

Robinson and Sean Gibson opened the innings  but with only five on the board Zaffer Zaman bowled Robinson for one and just three runs later Zaman struck again when he bowled Gibson (5).

Alex Blake and Radcliffe professional Phil Hayes put together a stand of 62 before Blake danced down the track and was comfortably stumped by Scott Stanworth off the bowling of Dale Highton.

The same combination accounted for Tom Barling (5) 12 runs later.

Michael Burns helped his pro to put on a stand of 40 before Hayes was caught by Middletons professional Michael Smith off the bowling of Matt Foden for a top score of 59.

The score had reached 133 when Highton struck twice in three balls to remove Ben Johnson (4) and Burns (21) both caught by Stuart Fitton and just five runs later Highton had his second five-wicket haul of the week when he and Stanworth combined again with the stumping of  Gary Wolstencroft for two and he finished with superb figures of 19 3 43 5.

Foden picked up the ninth wicket when Stanworth took his fourth stumping of the day to get rid of Faisal Ali for one.

Radcliffe saw through the last four balls to reach 141 for 9 in their allotted overs with Ste Cheetham not out 2 and Chris Owen also not out 2.

Middleton needed a good start and that is what they got when Stanworth and Davey put on a stand of 58 off 74 balls before Stanworth was caught at slip by Johnson off Cheetham for 10.

Twenty four runs later Cheetham struck again when Smith was adjudged lbw for three.

The score had reached 96 when Davey fell for a magnificent 68 - his top score of the season off 76 balls with 14 fours when he was also adjudged lbw off Johnson.

Middleton had a little bit of a wobble with Tom Hardman (9) falling to the Johnson-Cheetham combination with the score on 109 and 13 runs later Cheetham picked up his fourth wicket when he had Stuart Fitton caught behind by Robinson for four.

George Walker 15 not out and Grant Jones also 15 not out saw Middleton home for a comfortable four points.
