Second Division - Burscough maintain 100% record
Jamie Bowman - Saturday 16th May 2015

Burscough maintained their 100% record at the top of the Second Division with an eight wicket win over Alder. Excellent bowling from Jon Stone (4-30) and Jack Cosgrove (4-23) saw the Alder batting order crumble to 94 all out with only Jonathan Hennessy (24) offering much resistance. The leaders then knocked off the runs in the 19th over for the loss of just two wickets.  scorecard

Wavertree recorded a first victory of the season with a four wicket win over Skelmersdale. Matt Nation (5-27) and Kamir Sohail (4-33) were the men in form as the hosts were bowled out for just 113. The visitors were in trouble at 3-2 and then 48-6 but Stewart Guy's unbeaten 53 allayed any fears as Wavertree reached the target in the 36th over.  scorecard

Old Xaverians moved to third place after leaving Pemberton's Meadow with a 30 run win over Parkfield Liscard. Three wickets apiece for Inderdip Singh (3-47) and Darren Craven (3-40) helped restrict the visitors to 152 all out. Josh Dilworth’s 4-3 then helped clinch the game as Parkfield were bowled out for 122.  scorecard

Caldy’s David Tassell produced a brilliant spell of 6-50 off 10 overs against Birkenhead St Mary’s for whom David Stewart’s 45 was a lone highlight out of a total of 93. Muhammad Qasim chipped in with 3-7 for Caldy who strolled to a seven wicket victory in the 15th over.  scorecard

There were plenty of runs at the YMCA Ground as veteran Stephen Tickle (74) and Bevan Small (48) helped Orrell Red Triangle declare on 227-5 off 53 overs against Sutton with Jamie Greener (3-51) the pick of the bowlers. A stunning second wicket partnership of 137 between skipper Adam Onion (81) and Luke Hughes (90) put paid to the host's chances as Sutton sealed a seven wicket win.  scorecard

The day’s final game saw Spring View leave Sandy Lane with a 63 run victory over Hightown St Mary’s after they reached 192 all out. In reply, the hosts were dismissed for 129 with Steve Leyland's unbeaten 56 the highlight.  scorecard
