At Nantwich, the front-runners of Chester League Premier Division were second best a week before, where they had faced a setback of 63 runs from last season’s champion.
Moore named this major setback as a ‘wake-up call.’But his mood improved slightly by hearing the news that Alderley Edge, who is second-placed, also performed terribly at relegation-threatened Marple, who got out after scoring twelve runs.
Third-placed Neston, who is head to Chester, is in high spirits after a crucial victory over Grappenhall, who they got out for just 110.
They are now 5 points behind Edge and thirty-five drift of Chester; it shows that stakes are high for both sides.
Moore said, “Defeating to Nantwich was a wake-up call previous weekend,” who has tolerated another challenging week on the Minor Counties circuit with Cheshire—being champions. Berkshire enhanced their winning three-day run to thirty games with a massive win of 148 runs.
“Chasing a big total of 179 runs was surely going to be a challenging task on the pitch of Nantwich, but we always favoured it. We just lost our way a little, and we have to go for a magical spell of bowling from our great bowler Jimmy Warrington.
In the last two seasons, we’ve had some great matches with Neston. It is our next team to play the match and will surely be a daunting task, but we see it as a golden chance to return to our form.
On the Sunday in the third round of Cheshire Cup, we’ve come thick and fast games to be played at home. It is amazing to have a match at home, and with fantastic weather, we’re expecting to have a decent crowd.”
Charlie Fleet and Harry Killoran got 3 wickets for Hall at Nantwich, while Will Evans of Neston scored 61 runs to his tally 740 of his season and is now fifty-one ahead of Moore in the list of highest scorers.
In the button’s battle, it seems Marple make the tour to Grappenhall while at Oulton Park -Nantwich will struggle to win two fixtures on the bounce.
Cheadle and Widnes were hosted by Toft and had the benefit of the home against visiting Hyde.
On the back of a bad performance against Stockport, Georgians Barrow heads to Alvanley. On the flip side, Christleton hosts a Tattenhall team, striving in the bottom two.
Last week against Congleton, the Christelon were all out after piling up a target of 194. The opening batsman named Mubashar Hassan contributed 61 runs.
In a low-scoring match, the second-ranked named Westminster Park, who was honoured to become the host of Cheshire League Division named as Styal during this weekend, have won the match by one wicket as they sent all the players of Glazebury after scoring a trivial target of 94-run.
Furthermore, Chan Singh had landed 6-26 for Saughall the previous week, but they had faced another setback to Trafford Metrovics.
They’ll struggle to end the silliness at home to Glazebury. On the other hand, in Division Three, fourth-ranked Chester County Officers will seek one more win at Frodsham.
