bold decision

Frodsham’s bold decision failed to pay off

FRODSHAM lost their final league match of the season after making the bold decision to bat first at Malpas.

It was a decision skipper Matt Deakin soon had cause to regret as wickets tumbled.
Mid-order batsman Tom Wilkinson top-scored with 20 as the side were bowled out for 116.
Malpas lost three wickets to Jamie London and Deakin – but then they put the bowling to the sword and raced to victory, finishing on 117-3 in the 36th over.
The result left Frodsham in a respectable mid-table position in the Cheshire League division three.
Frodsham 2nd won by a comfortable 52 run margin at home to Winnington Park.
Batting first, they hit 175-9 from 40 overs and then dismissed the visitors for 123 in the 39th over.
An enthusiastic Frodsham XI travelled to Lymm Oughtrington Park on Sunday to finish off the season – but lost by seven wickets in a low-scoring match.
Skipper Roger London, batting at Number 10, showed how it was done, however, with an unbeaten 30 out of a total of 84-8. Lymm replied with 85-3 in the 27th over.

Kingsley lost by 53 runs at Ashley
They bowled the home side out for 143, Joel Logan taking 5-43, but were then dismissed for 90, despite Ben Stoddart’s well-struck 31.
The defeat left them fourth in the Cheshire County League division three.
Kingsley 2nd won at home to Wirral, bowling out the visitors for 116 and then hitting off the runs for the loss of six wickets.
Paul Betteridge and Adrian Burden took three wickets each while Kingsley Warman hit a fine, unbeaten, 45.
Alvanley ended the season in fine style, all three teams winnings comfortable.
The 1st XI won by 116 runs at Timperley, the 2nd XI won by six wickets at home to Romiley and the 3rd XI inflicted a big 186-run defeat on Appleton.
