Here are the latest developments in the Cheshire Women's Cricket League.
Division One – July 11:
Stockport Trinity 175-4 (40; Ellie Mason 97, Jenny Dunn 56, Rosy Wilson 2-26) (7 points)
Didsbury 177-4 (34.3; Roshini Prince-Navaratnam 105, Rosie Davies 25, Dunn 2-45) (25 points)
Didsbury continue to lead the way after completing what could have been a tricky run chase with relative ease. Roshini Prince-Navaratnam batted superbly before falling for 105 just before the close, having reached her fifty with only 65 on the board and then adding another 65 for the third wicket with Rosie Davies in the period when the game really turned in Didsbury’s favour. Ellie Mason and Jenny Dunn earlier put on 152 for Trinity’s first wicket – their third century stand of the season – with Mason falling just short of a second century of the year.
Chester Boughton Hall 130-8 (40; Ali Cutler 74, Kate Coppack 24, Natalie Lyons 2-19, Kerry Hartnett 2-22, Leah Holland 2-36) (25 points)
Oakmere 114-6 (40; Phoebe Cottam 31) (7 points)
In such a competitive division, it was always unlikely that any one team would complete an unbeaten season, and here Oakmere became the final team in the seven-club division to taste defeat. Ali Cutler’s superb season continued as she made easily the highest score in this tight affair.
Division Two – July 11:
Nantwich 129-7 (35; Bethan Robinson 37*, Beth Hughes 30, Charlotte Neal 26, Becky Scholes 2-16, Cleo Johnson 2-16) (25 points)
Stockport Georgians 78 (19; Lucy Neill 48*, Grace Michell 4-15, Robinson 2-13, Izzy Pearson 2-15) (6 points)
Bethan Robinson played an important innings as Nantwich recovered from 58-5, then Grace Michell’s opening burst reduced Georgians to 5-5 in reply, ensuring the points were bound for South Cheshire.
Division Three West – July 9:
Nantwich 2nd XI beat Wistaston Village – no further details at present and result not included in league table.
Nantwich 2nd XI 60 (27; Ashlee Prince 23, Rhian Thomas 5-9) (1 point)
Hawarden Park 61-0 (11.5; Holly Mayers 33ret) (25 points)
Rhian Thomas’ five-wicket haul, which included a hat-trick, maintained Hawarden’s unbeaten record as they beat Nantwich who fielded two teams on this day despite six Covid-related absences.
Division Three East – July 11:
Lindow 95-6 (30; Michelle Hesslegrave 38, Fiona Reeve 2-11) (25 points)
Woodley 88-7 (30; Reeve 26, Lily Beckley 3-19) (5 points)
The loss of several early wickets cost Woodley here as they lost their unbeaten league record.
Division Four – July 11:
Hawk Green 84-4 (20; Richmal Giles 32, Lola Reed 2-4) (7 points)
Stockport Georgians 2nd XI 85-4 (19.2; Heather Mukherjee 19*) (25 points)
Georgians second team maintained their 100 per cent record in this division, but on this occasion Hawk Green made them wait until the final over before reaching the target.
Quarter Finals – July 5:
Appleton Tigers 113-3 (20; Annie Rashid 32ret, Emma Barlow 31ret, Georgia Heath 24*)
Chester Boughton Hall Deemons 75-6 (20; Ali Cutler 30ret, Olivia Horsfield 4-6)
After the extraordinary match between the two sides in the T20 Western Division earlier in the season, this was an altogether more comfortable win for Appleton, with Olivia Horsfield’s outstanding bowling display the standout contribution.
