Mixed fortunes on the opening day of the season

23 Apr 2018

Mixed fortunes on Saturday for the first weekend of the season . Our firsts fell 55 runs short at Roe Green  with the hosts recovering from 45-4 to post 185 . In reply only Luke Melling 45 could make any real in-roads into the total with us falling 55 runs short . Hopefully the lads can bounce back next weekend agaisnt Woodbank at Windsor Park a where our professional , Zimbabwe international Blessing Muzarabani will be making his debut .

Secong team got off to a flyer with a thumping 143 runs victory over Stretford . A solid scorecard which included 58 from Matt Senior saw us post 239 . In reply Stretford could only muster 95 as Ben Lowndes and Aaron Wood both cliamed 3 wickets each . They will be looking to build on that with an away trip to Unsworth on Saturday , followed by a local derby cup game at home to Denton on Sunday .

We will be open tonight ( Monday 23rd  ) where you can sign up to our membership scheme saving money on your drinks at the bar . This is also an opportunity for anyone who has already signed up to pick up their membership card if you dont already have it.

Thanks for your support
