Wallasey claim the win in Liverpool and District derby clash
WALLASEY saw off Birkenhead Park in the Premier Division while Birkenhead St Mary’s defeated Caldy in Division Two to take the derby honours in the Liverpool and District Competition at the weekend.
Wallasey elected to bat first after winning the toss and declared on 186-8 with Alex Eagles contributing 46 and Dan Beaver 41.
Rob Houghton bowled tirelessly for Park for a 6-67 return. Ben Davies on 57 top scored for the visitors but Wallasey bowler Lahiru Wellalege carried the day with 6-33 for a 32 runs margin.
New Brighton went under by four wickets at home to Leigh. Luke Proctor top made 48 and Ashraf Nawab was best of the bowlers with 3-64.
Birkenhead St Mary’s had 19 runs to spare against Caldy. A Saints total of 122 after they were asked to bat first did not seem enough but their bowlers responded well.
Number nine Lee Roberts scored a vital 35 for the winners whilst their bowlers to shine were Zaighum Abbas with 4-35 and Usman Khushnood with 4-27.
Best for Caldy were Haroon Khan on 37, Richard Battersby 4-28 and Brynley Richards 3-45 Parkfield Liscard came away 54 runs winners from Alder in Division Two.
Akmal Ghafoor and Kamran Hussein each struck 48 and the successful bowlers were John McClennan with 5-32 and Grant Hughes 4-35.
Oxton were denied by the last Hyde pair and had to settle for a draw in the Premier Division of the Cheshire County League.
Glen Queri had a terrific match for Oxton with an unbeaten 110 followed by a 5-49 spell with the ball.
Simon Stokes chipped in with 77 but Hyde closed on 204-9 after Oxton had declared on 290-7.
There was no joy for Neston who lost by eight wickets against visiting Chester Broughton Hall. Dan Williams hit 43 but the Neston all out total of 136 after they were asked to bat first always looked inadequate.
Upton lost by five wickets at Tattenhall in Divisin Two. Rick Potter 88 and Darren Warburton 43 helped Upton to 217-8 declared. However, Tattenhall scored 220-5.
Old Parkonians suffered a 29-run home reverse against Stalybridge St Pauls in Division One of the Cheshire Alliance.
