Team News – Week 16, 5th & 6th August 2017

Its week 16 of the Intersport Monkhouse Derbyshire & Cheshire League and last week we had 2 wins on Saturday for the first time in what felt like a decade.

Last weekend saw the 1st XI have a long trip to Chapel and bowled first getting the home team out for 115. They then stumbled over the line 9 down as Captain fantastic Lee “BOOM BOOM” Turner saved the day by winning the game with 2 sixes.

After a few embarrassing weekends the 2nd XI finally got back to winning ways against Hayfield and were set 149 to win with M. Barnard coming back from retirement to get 7 – 24 off 12 overs. It only took them 27 overs to get the target and securing a much valuable 20 points in return

This weekend sees the 1st XI at home against the league high flyers Compstall while the 2nd XI have the short trip to Woodley.

The 3rd team have also got a game on Sunday again and after a rain off at Stand they can hopefully get a win under their belts when they welcome Unsworth to Mount Pleasant
