Team News – Week 17, 12th & 13th August 2017

Its week 17 of the Intersport Monkhouse Derbyshire & Cheshire League as it was a change in fortunes for both senior sides last weekend.

Last weekend saw the 1st XI play league high flyers Compstall at home which turned into an embarrassing defeat  for them as they were bowled out for just 66 chasing Compstalls 205.

It was up to the 2nd team to secure the clubs only win of the weekend as they played second in the table Woodley. We batted first getting 243 off 45 overs thanks to G. Finan getting his maiden century for the club as he got bowled for 113. They then restricted Woodley to just 154 as they won by 89 runs.

This weekend sees the 1st XI at away to Birch Vale while the 2nd XI are at home at Mount Pleasant against Dove Holes.

The 3rd team have also got a game on Sunday again and after a heavy defeat at home to Unsworth they take a trip to Whalley Range.
