VIVIO CHESHIRE CCL DIVI­SION ONE MAC­CLES­FIELD ..... 220-8 WIDNES....................... 170

MAC­CLES­FIELD en­sured Widnes’ mis­er­able sea­son went on, their 50-run vic­tory at the divi­sion’s sec­ond-bot­tom side mean­ing they re­main the only team in the league yet to record a win.

Macc con­firmed their lead­er­ship rights with an im­pres­sive all-round per­for­mance, once again led by cap­tain Nick Ross.

The Aussie hit 68 to edge ever closer to reach­ing 1,000 runs for the sea­son.

Ross and Tom Parfitt (43) helped the vis­i­tors post 220-8, Ben He­witt’s 5-35 the top per­for­mance for Widnes.

In re­ply the hosts were dis­missed for just 170, with He­witt scor­ing 35.

The Macc at­tack was led by Jack Ward with 3-30 and Ian Tait, who fin­ished with 3-43.

On Sun­day, Au­gust 31 Mac­cles­field CC will host an un­der-sev­ens cricket fes­ti­val.

As one of the few clubs in the North West with a ded­i­cated un­der-sev­ens group, Mac­cles­field will play Poyn­ton, Con­gle­ton, Prestbury, Ash­ley and Romi­ley and will give young crick­eters a great op­por­tu­nity to com­pete against other clubs.

The teams are play­ing for the SAS Daniels Tro­phy, named af­ter event spon­sors SAS Daniels So­lic­i­tors, and the event starts at 10am.

As well as the cricket there will be a bar­be­cue, bar, face paint­ing and bouncy cas­tle, a sweet and loom band stall and disco.

Or­gan­is­ers are hop­ing Eng­land coach Peter Moores will again be at his home­town club, if the Eng­land coach’s busy sched­ule al­lows, to present the awards.
