2nd XI Round Up - Week 8 (12 June)

In the Premier Division's top game, third place Orrell RT moved ahead of second placed Formby with a well executed run chase in a high scoring affair at Winstanley Road. After Tom Simpson had a third score of 70+ of the campaign, and several useful middle order contributions including an unbeaten 36 from Charles Gallagher, the away side must have felt some confidence. That confidence looked well founded as Orrell lost wickets at regular intervals until Steven Unsworth with 54 and Terry Leaford with 51 not out came together to help their side across the line. Veteran Anthony Rogan taking 5 for 60 in an attempt to claim victory.

Leaders Wallasey were another team that needed to chase down a score of over 200 in their win at Lytham. Martin Williams, hitting 92 was the foundation as Ward's 45 not out helped the cause. Matthew McGreehin had earlier scored his maiden century (103 no) out of the 136 scored while he was at the crease. Four other batsmen passing 20. Ormskirk target was considerably lower as they dismissed Southport & Birkdale for 74, Ed Brown with 4 wickets then seeing Jones hitting an unbeaten 40.

Newton le Willows were another side to successfully chase as they never looked in difficulties against Sefton Park. Openers Tully and Jenkins both scoring 40s together with three other significant contributions of 20 plus helped their side to a six wicket win. Best for the home side was David Kelly with 48 before becoming one of Nathan Hughes' four victims. Four wickets each for Liverpool duo Tod and Karslake helped restrict Firwood Bootle's reply as they fell to a 64 run defeat. Liverpool's total included a half century from Veeraj Garakipati and 41 from Butt. Bootle's reply was built around McGee's 51 but he lacked support as no other batsman passed 17 despite 40 extras. Three players scored 30s for New Brighton as they eased to a 30 run victory over Northern for whom Harry Howat scored 61 coming in at number 7 in a vain attempt to recover from 30/7. Lees with three wickets.

Standings 1 – Wallasey 158 pts, Orrell RT 135, 3 – Formby 124

The First Division remains tightly bunched at the top. Only Birkenhead Park of the top six failed to win. They, rather suprisingly, fell to bottom club Spring View. Recovering from 11/3, Harry Cooper with his maiden club fifty and 55 from Michael Heyes did enough to ease their side to a 4 wicket win. Dale Taylor top scored for Park with 51. Leaders Leigh dismissed Wavertree with Nathan Graham claiming his best ever return of 7/27 despite Marc Powell offering the only real resistance with 65. Glover with 36 for Leigh as Grover took three of the wickets to fall.

Wigan moved into second place, getting the better of local rivals Highfield. Joe Burrows with 72 not out the best in Wigan's chase. Ben Gregory with an undefeated 55, helped by Jump with 49, for Highfield. Dawson taking 4/58. Kieran Hughes hit his maiden century finishing on 112 as his Old Xaverians side eased to a 31 run win over Ainsdale. No other player bettered 17. Gadzina with 4 wickets. Joel Barlow hit 83 but he also lacked solid support as the best of the rest was 21. Doyle also taking four wickets.

The two Welsh sides had successful travels. Colwyn Bay's Chris Barry with 59, Roberts 42 after Jones had taken 4 wickets helping to dismiss Rainhill. Northop Hall set a score of 173 with youngsters Withe 42 and Leach 35 the best, Rainford batsmen failed to kick off as six of them reached double figures but no-one able to get past 12. Five wickets (for 30) for Will Edwards, just his second “five-for”

Standings – 1 – Leigh 120 pts. 2 – Wigan 116, 3 – Northop Hall 114

The division's top game was the meeting of top two of Division Two resulting in new leaders as Southport Trinity successfully chased Fleetwood Hesketh score of 176. Scott Francis with his second half century of the campaign was undefeated on 72 assisted by Jones with 39 and 37 from Butler. Bellis Shukla had earlier scored 58 before being run out and Regan with 35 for the overnight leaders. Maghull continued to keep the leaders within sight after a wonderful 134 unbroken second wicket partnership between Richard Brown who hit 102 and 53 from Jamie Breakwell in just 24 overs. Faced with a daunting total, Ratcliffe scored 43 but few of his Parkfield colleagues were able to offer any stern resistance to Tom Connolly's 5/28.

Caldy also amassed a big score, hitting 244 with Oliver Higgs an unbeaten centurian helped by 71 from Keith Findlay. Just two Prestatyn players reached double figures with Ravichandan taking three wickets in a 100 plus run defeat. Suprisingly, this was not the division's highest score as David Critchley with a career best 108 no helped Norley Hall reach 250. Burrows with 67 not out. Hightown St Mary put up a credible response led by Devey 41 and three other good contributions before falling 57 short.

Alder recorded their first victory of the season, after Kirkpatrick's 5/46 had limited Sutton St Helens to 123 (Dodd 48no). Fearnyough with 35 in a three wicket win

Standings – 1 - Southport Trinity 119 pts, 2 – Fleetwood Hesketh 117, 3 – Maghull 104.
