Middleton v Rochdale Sunday June 24 2012

Wanapura Puts Middleton To The Sword

ROCHDALE’S Sri Lankan professional Malinda Wanapura played a classy innings at Towncroft to ensure the visitors went away with five points in a dress rehearsal for Sunday’s Wood Cup semi-final, writes Rod Highton.

Middleton Skipper Ste Davey won the toss and elected to bat on a damp track. Davey was on his way back to the pavilion off the first ball of the second over after attempting to drive Tom Avery, only to see Wanapura take an easy catch at mid-off.

Crompton v Middleton Saturday June 23 2012

Stanworth Sees Middleton Home

MIDDLETON picked up another four points at Glebe Street on Saturday, writes Rod Highton.

Credit must be given to Crompton for getting the game on after the horrendous weather the previous day. The game was due to start on time but once again rain held up play until 2.45 and play was reduced to 37 overs.

A 10 Point Saturday
Saturday, 23 June 2012

It was celebrations all round this evening as both teams recorded outright wins over Crompton.

The First Eleven made the trip to Glebe Street, and were led home by the in-form Scott Stanworth with a knock of 69 not out after Crompton had finished on 163 for 3 off their 37 overs.

Meanwhile, back at Towncroft, the Second Eleven eased past their Crompton counter parts by 6 wickets, the victory was set up by Mark Buckley's figures of 5 for 35 off 15 overs, and an accomplished half century from Matt Lee secured the victory.

Middleton v Unsworth Wood Cup second round Sunday June 17 2012

Masterful Middleton sail into semi-final

MIDDLETON comfortably beat Unsworth at Towncroft to book a place in the semi-finals at home to Rochdale on Sunday July 1.

Unsworth won the toss and put Middleton in to bat. Scott Stanworth and skipper Ste Davey had their work cut out against Unsworth opening bowlers Jonathan Fowler, their professional, and Jack O'Brien to the extent that only seven runs had been scored in the first six overs.

Where are they Now?
Wednesday, 13 June 2012

COLIN Boucher was last seen driving a bus in Oldham, Ken McEntyre is somewhere in the Antipodes still involved with a cricket club and Keith Courtney is a multi-millionaire importer-exporter with business contacts and residences around the world, writes STEVE BOTT.

So where are the others now? The charismatic players who everybody loved at Towncroft over the years - from Roy Gilchrist to Brad Osborne and many in between and maybe even after.

We see a famous local lad who has never left his roots often. Paul Rocca is still heavily involved with the league and visits Towncroft on a regular basis. He also uses a bus now from time to time as he has a free pass! Maybe he stands at the front and has a chat with Colin during the journey!

Talking of buses I wonder where Brian is now. Brian was a vociferous North Mancunian who supported Middleton for many seasons and also drove a bus.

The best tale involving him was when he allegedly stopped a double decker full of passengers on Hollin Lane, climbed out of the driver's seat and up onto the top deck where he proceeded to watch the action on Towncroft for a while oblivious to his passengers and their desire to reach their destinations! 

John Burton was one of the first professionals I watched at Towncroft shortly after I arrived as a young nine-year-old boy on Springfield Road.

John was a big, lean-boned Yorkshireman from the Huddersfield area. Indeed, it is probably through him that Middleton CC's connection with Slaithwaite Cricket Club began. Roger Clarkson, a fast bowler who also resided on Springfield Road and the aforementioned Keith Courtney went to Slaithwaite for spells as the professional at the club just over the Lancs/Yorks boundary on the road from Oldham to Huddersfield.

In sharp contrast to straightforward and upright John Burton let's leap to Brad Osborne, a likeable South African who was good on the pitch a great conversationalist in the bar and he also had a bit of a mad streak too which created the odd interesting titbit to mull over as well!

I wonder what he and Kelvin Williams are doing now. Kelvin was a much loved pro at Middleton. He had two spells with the club and there weren't many who did not take to this quiet affable West Indian.
