2nd XI Round up – Week 7 (5 June)

Wallasey retained and slightly increased their lead at the head of the Premier Division thanks to a Josh Rylance – inspired win as he hit his eleventh career century in the 34 run victory over Sefton Park. Although he dominated the scorecard, there were important contributions from five of his colleagues who all passed or neared 20. Ostler with 79 and 57 from Hale gave the visitors a hope but three wickets, including Ostler's, from Koegh saw the leaders home. Another centurian was Northern's Liam Biddlestone, who hit his maiden senior ton, out of a total of 186 but it was in vain as Orrell RT reached the target with five wickets in hand. Jake Brown with 66 and an unbeaten 53 from Mahoney keeping the Wigan based team in third place.

Lytham's Myles Child also passed three figures (107) in a high scoring defeat to second placed Formby for whom Oliver Gallagher notched up 78 and Poole 50 in a successful chase. Myerscough with 4 for 60. After a slow start to the season, Ormskirk continued on their winning ways defeating Liverpool by 26 runs. Hepke with 39 the best as three others chipped in with runs as Garakipati took 4 wickets. Dunsmore's 45 lacked support with no-one else passing 16 as Mansell also claimed four.

Murnan of Newton le Willows was the only bowler in the division to claim a “five for” helping to restrict Southport and Birkdale to 122 with figures of 5/24. Fletcher 63 (including 11*4s) scoring more than half of his sides runs. Connolly hit an unbeaten 40 to ensure victory after a a flurry of wickets. New Brighton's Adam Neal 70, Murphy 57 and Bootle's Nagle 68 not out were their sides main contributors in their drawn game.

Standing : 1 – Wallasey 136 pts, 2 – Formby 115,3 – Orrell RT 112.

Leigh moved to the top of Division One mainly thanks to an unbeaten 94 from Daniel Humphreys (featuring 19 * 4s) in their seven wicket victory over Rainford. He and Bentham featured in a 145 unbroken stand after Mistry had earlier hit 78 for the visitors but once he was dismissed his team mates struggles with Whitehead taking 4/18. Overnight leaders Birkenhead Park held out for a draw with the last pair together against Old Xaverians. Rose had scored 52 and the rest of the top order all chipped in for the men from Childwall. Park lost wickets at regular intervals as Lewis Barnes taking 5/44.

The top of the division sees the top five separated by only five points in what at this stage is a very competitive league. Wigan retain third place beating Ainsdale by 30 runs. Samouelle led the way with 53 and Dawson claiming 5/35 for the victors. After a bright opening, both Ainsdale openers falling in the 30s, Wigan were always on top. Colwyn Bay saw off Spring View by 57 runs thanks largely to Roberts' 61 and five wickets from Shay Williams. Bowes with 38 runs and chipping in with 4 for 32 the best for Spring View aided by four wickets by Gornall. Hudson and Russell also hitting 30s for the Welshmen.

Rainhill returned victorious from Northop Hall as Duffy 47 leading the way as again three others passing 24. Fourteen year old Joshua Leach continued his impressive form of recent weeks with another four wickets adding to last week's haul of nine wickets. Sussex and Withe each also hitting 47 for Northop. Highfield got the better of Wavertree by 30 in a low scoring game. No one passed 28 on either side as the bowlers dominated with Webster taking his maiden five wicket return ending up with 6/36 for the Wavertee team. Not to be outdone, Will Gregory also returned his best ever figures of 6/22 to bowl his side to victory as Wavertree lost their last seven wickets for just 9 runs.

Standings : 1 – Leigh 95 pts, 2 – Birkenhead Park 93, 3 – Wigan 93.

The day's top game in Division Two saw leaders Fleetwood Hesketh travel to third place Sutton St Helens but come away beaten. Despite getting starts, no Hesketh batsmen passed 33 as they struggled to 139 with Michael Rimmer cleaning up the tail with 5/19, his first ever five wicket return. Thomas Nolan cemented the response with 64 but it required an unbeaten 22 from Shaun Anders to see his side home in a 1 wicket win. Second placed Southport Trinity also returned from their travels as a beaten side. Francis with 63 plus a late order rally helped his side to a reasonable 191 but Higgs 59 and Hargreaves 55 were both unbeaten after Findlay had scored 43 for their Caldy side.

Maghull's Liam Gibbons took 5/32 (his first since 2017) to help restrict Prestatyn to 75. Richard Brown then added a quickfire 53 not out in an eight wicket win. A similar tale at Parkfield Liscard saw Gregson with 5/11 the main destroyer after a 53 run opening stand. Daniel Murphy with 52 not out for St Helens Town. In the day's closest game, Hightown St Marys recorded an 11 run win over Alder. Alistair Devey the mainstay with 63 not out off 175 balls faced as the home team struggled to dominate an economic attack. Alder with Scott 31, failed to capitalise on starts with six players reaching double figures as Taibu Junior took 4/60

Standing : - 1 – Fleetwood Hesketh 110 pts, 2 – Southport Trinity 99, 3 – Sutton St Helens 91  (RD)
