LG-L&DCC U25 RECORD FINE WIN OVER MCC IN ANNUAL GAME AT LEIGH CC.

LG-L&DCC U25 RECORD FINE WIN OVER MCC IN ANNUAL GAME AT LEIGH CC.

On an overcast but eventually dry day, the LDCC U25 side recovered from a stuttering beginning to record an excellent 3 wicket victory in the annual fixture against the MCC.

Batting first, the MCC were restricted to just 60 for 2 off their first 20 overs by impressive opening bowling spells from Northern's Kieron Viz (2 for 16 off his spell) and Leigh's own Patrick Allen (0 for 23) aided by David Atkinson of Rainhill who was the pick of the bowlers, as he produced an excellent return of 3 for 28 and Zac Donahue who deserved better than being wicketless in his two spells.

A solid 55 from MCC probationer Corey Green (who managed just three scoring shots in a run of 59 balls mid innings) enabled the MCC to reach 184 after lunch with Danny Edwards picking up 3 for 44 as the Competition bowlers rattled through 58 overs in no time at all.

Liverpool's batsmen faced a tricky ten overs before the tea interval and were soon struggling at 26 for 4. An early finish looked on but Joe Noctor with 36 and David Atkinson with 38 helped to take the score to 108 for 6.  Danny Edwards then joined John Dotters in plundering runs with the Lytham captain crashing a six into the wire fencing protecting the cars to bring up a well deserved 50. Dotters earning the victory with a four.

Huge thanks to all at Leigh CC (especially Derrick Ainscow) for their help in hosting the game and for the excellent catering provided.  Praise also is given to captain James Cole for involving all the players
