Second Division - Spring View tame free scoring Trinity and go top
Saturday 6th May 2017

Spring View lead the Second Division tonight after skittling free scoring Southport Trinity at the Rookery. With Spring View's first three batsmen out for 0 and then the team reeling at 19-4, Trinity must have been anticipating an early finish but Amar Ullah hit 66 and Saif-ur-Rehman, 59*, to enable them to declare on 214-8 after 55 overs with Jake Sunderland taking 5-35. Trinity's Hayden McCrae failed to equal team mate Geoff Thornton's record of three successive centuries as he went for 8 and his team could only reach 84 all out, Nathan Barnes taking 4-12.  scorecard

A maiden century by Josh Dilworth (106*, 128 balls, 17x4s) set Old Xaverians on their way to 262-d in 42.3 overs against Parkfield Liscard. Dilworth added 100 for the second wicket with Joe Lyons (30) and then 116 for the third wicket with skipper Ian Carroll (68). Parkfield were then bowled out for 163 with three wickets apiece for Alex Ward and Matthew North.  scorecard

Northop Hall drop to third after surviving with a draw at Caldy. The home team were creaking at 109-6 but veteran Mark Wilkie (50) and Jordan Free (56*) took them to 227-7 after 55 overs. Hall were in sight of victory at 165-4 but the loss of five wickets for twenty runs left them hanging on at 203-9.  scorecard

A low scoring match at Ruskin Drive left St Helens Town with 132 all out, Laurie Kitchen taking 4-32 and Mattie Nation, 4-34. Tom Oughterson hit 50 for Wavertree as they struggled to 134-8 in 43.3 overs, Jack Graham taking 4-41.  scorecard

Maghull reached 144 all out in 53.1 overs at Aigburth with Chris Tonge taking 3-15. Liverpool's reply of 148-3 included half centuries from Tushar Mahambrey (52) and Henry Charlton (51*).  scorecard

Alder collapsed from 143-4 to 179 all out at Prescot and Odyssey with Kamran Hussain hitting 60 and Andy Aitchison, 44. Prescot reached 97-2 (Steve Danson 44) but then it was their turn to collapse as they were all out for 122 with Nazim Mohammed taking 4-42 and his twin, Zahid, 3-7.  scorecard
