ECB Premier League - Wallasey win Wirral derby
Friday 3rd June 2022

Wallasey extend their lead to 28 pts after beating New Brighton by 14 runs in the Wirral derby at Rake Lane.

In a match that didn't start until 12:30pm owing to tidying up after morning rain, Wallasey made a solid start with Josh Rylance (42) and Danny Beaver (47) adding 85 for the first wicket. An unbeaten 51 by skipper Greg Beaver led to a sporting declaration on 190-6 at tea.

New Brighton reached 148-5 after 41,5 overs but the collapse started with the fall of Oliver Griffiths next ball. The last five wickets added just 28 runs in 9.2 overs to leave them 176 all out.

Sumit Ruikar bowled 25.1 of the 51.1 overs and picked up 6-75 to take him to 41 wickets with seven five wicket hauls in as many matches but he has bowled 158 out of Wallasey's 329 overs.
