Second Division - Orrell Red Triangle are stoned to defeat
Saturday 30th May 2015

Burscough may be a long way from equalling St Helens Recs' run of fourteen wins at the start of the 2010 season but so far they have won six out of six. The leaders clearly thought that 234-5 after 55 overs wasn't sufficient so they batted on to 257-7d in 59.2 overs at Orrell Red Triangle. Mike Bimpson (88) and Brendan Domigan (77) provided the backbone to the innings with a third wicket partnership of 150. Phil Taberner took 3-66 for Orrell. Dave Naylor (39) and Andrew Mottram (31) gave Orrell a solid start but Jon Stone took 5-51 as the hosts fell to 162 all out.  scorecard

Old Xaverians went from 83-4 to 220-7d in 54.5 overs with Steve Irwin (58) and Matthew North (34) adding 72 for the sixth wicket against Caldy at Beaconsfield Road. Caldy found batting difficult as they could only reach 128 all out after 51.3 overs, Josh Dilworth taking 3-27 and Chris Doyle, 3-38.  scorecard

Sutton recorded their third win of the season after beating Hightown St Mary's by three wickets at Sandy Lane. Shaun Vosloo hit 37 in a Hightown total of 125 in 47.3 overs with Jamie Greener taking 5-31 and Steve Birkett, 3-19, on his return from Rainford. Sutton went to 127-7 in reply with Adam Onion opening with 32.  scorecard

Wavertree's match at Birkenhead St Mary's lasted a mere 25.3 overs. Jafari Toppin took 4-20 and Kamir Sohail. 3-3, as Mary's were skittled for 40. The visitors then replied with 41-1 in just 5.4 overs.  scorecard

Parkfield Liscard picked up their first win of the season, beating Spring View by nine runs in a low scoring match at Pemberton's Meadow. Sadrey Depieza hit 37 and Grant Hughes 26 in a Parkfield total of 108 with Akbar Rehman taking 5-41 and Jonny Broad 3-8. Spring View were in a winning position but Depeiza (5-44) broke through the late order to leave the Wigan side 99 all out.  scorecard

Skelmersdale remain in bottom place after their draw with Alder at Firswood Park. They collapsed to 46-4 but Adeel Baig (70) and Mike Moss (29) added 100 for the fifth wicket. Michael Till (44*) and Luke Manley (24*) then added an unbroken partnership of 68 to let them declare on 220-6 after 55 overs. Despite an unbeaten 65 from David Conlan, Alder lost interest and ended the game on 164-6 after 49 overs.  scorecard
