2nd XI Round up – Week Two – 1 May

Three teams have made it two wins out of two in the Premier Division with reigning champion's Wallasey having maximum points following their resounding victory over Ormskirk in the day's top game. Darren Craven claimed five for 30 and Andrew Beaver four for13 as the visitors, after a good stand between Gill (37) and Brook, collapsed from 78 for 1, losing their last nine wickets for 44. Greg Beaver then scored an unbeaten 60 as the champions eased to a nine wicket win.

 

Formby's Michael Booth led the response with an undefeated 58 and several other made significant contributions as the home side successfully chased down Firwood Bootle's challenging 200 target in which captain Danny Hart hit 102no. Kenyon with four wickets. Liverpool are the other side with successive victories, returning from Lytham well satisfied with their afternoons work. Coming together with their side looking a little uncomfortable, Daniel Scott with 60 and John Crossley's unbeaten 53 made huge inroads into chasing down the hosts 227 declaration. Jason McGreehin and William Bookless both scored fifties and Daniel Clubbe, bowling unchanged, claimed 4 wickets.

Sefton Park recorded their first victory when youngsters James Stirling and Louis Disley (combined age 27) scored the six runs required off the final over to secure a three wicket win over Southport & Birkdale. Saeed with 50 aided by Ostler and Kelly had done the spade work. Tom Baybutt (50) and Dave Aston (passing 7500 play cricket runs in the process) the main contributors as they topped 200.

Northern's Matthew Wood (another U14) claimed his best ever return with an excellent, best of the day 6 for 23 as only Connolly (46) offered much resistance as Newton le Willows succumbed. Craig Bennett with 61 top scored for New Brighton but saw opener Matthew Wareing plunder 96 in Orrell Red Triangle's chase to victory.

Wigan are the only side in Division One to claim two from two in a comfortable victory over Rainhill. Jack Maddocks with 66, Ouwerkerk 59 and Yates 48, all contributing. Harry Jackman (5/39) proving too much of a handful for the visitors as Liam Yate (46) had any cause to be happy. Colwyn Bay opened their campaign by dismissing Ainsdale for 105 with Tom Clarke proving the destroyer in chief with 7/47 although they didnt have it all their own way when they batted losing seven wickets in the chase leaving the home side to ponder whether they could have won had they scored another 20 or so.

Northop Hall also started their opener with a victory at Highfield. Wallace 48 as Fox with 4/22 the main story of the home side knock. Jack Allen with 54 in a successful reply. Wavertree were the division's other winners in their first game. Sam Goodall-Walker with his maiden century108 (in his 139th play cricket innings) aided by Davies 50 despite Cosgrove's 4/77. U15 player Elijah Griffiths (finishing with 6/46) devasting opening spell tore into Rainford top order, leaving them at 35/6 but Steven Harrison 81 and Cosgrove 50no in a century stand gave some respectability to their day.

The two other games ended in draws including a nail – biter finale at Leigh where the home side finished level with Birkenhead Park on 230 runs each. Hird with 55 led the way for Park before falling as one of Ryan Housely five victims (5/60) and were well served by Dickin (45) and Pyrke (44). For Leigh Harry Church 61 and Michael Bentham 74, who was run out just five runs shy, were the main contributors. David Evans holding his nerve conceding just three runs off the final crucial over. Not as much excitement in Childwall as Spring View, having restricted Old Xaverians to just 126 off 45 overs before the ex-school side, plundered nearly 50 more before declaring, held a defensive rearguard as they recovered after losing five wickets for 26, to deny the hosts. Earlier Andrew Rose (96) fell just short of a well deserved ton. Four wickets for Green.

For the second successive week, in Division Two, a Sutton (St Helens) player scored a century. This week it was opener Ian Knowles with an unbeaten 126 paving the way for a 98 run victory over Prestayn, who had players making several starts but none managed to go on. Natalie Brown the best of the bowlers with 4 wickets. Norley Hall also passed 200 in victory against St Helens Town, thanks to Andrew McGrath's 94 and David Critchley half century although Campbell's efforts helped him claim 4/57. In reply only Ian Huyton with 48 provided much resistance against Burrows (4/31) and Woodcock (4/56).

Hightown St Marys eased to a ten wicket win after dismissing an under-strength Parkfield Liscard for just over a hundred. Wickets shared around with young Tatenda Taibu claiming three. Mark Tamburro hitting 53no in reaching the target. Fleetwood Hesketh also eased to a comfortable win with Benish Shukla 58 aided by Sykes and Sarbutts in setting a target that was too much for Caldy. Just two players reaching double figures as Paul Mullen recorded a five wicket haul (for just 8 runs). Maghull's victory over Alder was even quicker as Tom Connelly collected five for 23 but Alder could claim four wickets in the short chase. (RD)
