It was a glorious afternoon as I arrived high on the hills at a picturesque Moorside Cricket and Bowling Club, with the car temperature showing a balmy 24 degrees. This temperature was to drop considerably as the afternoon progressed and a cold front swept in. Moorside Captain Rick Harrington had won the toss and put Middleton in as the umpires led both teams out to observe a minutes silence in respect of the Manchester Arena bombing victims.

It was warm and extremely pleasant as I walked into Towncroft at 1.20pm last Sunday. Over at the Pavilion I noticed the Oldham lads were taking batting practice so I assumed that they had won the toss and elected to bat. Rash Hussain was leading the team from the Pollards for the fifth year in succession and would be able to call upon quick bowler Imran Khan whilst Tala Tufhail was the man for the runs, having scored 650 last year. Other quality players included Nadeem Ashrad,  whilst joining from Radcliffe were Malik and Ahmed. Competition in the Oldham Borough to recruit and build teams is tough with there being 18 other teams playing top flight cricket in a number of local leagues.
