Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS - GE­OFF ALLEN

AN­OTHER dou­ble for Ker­ridge saw their strong sea­son con­tinue at Mere.

Win­ning the toss Ker­ridge in­vited the home side to bat and the visi­tors flew out of the block with Adam Banks (2-34) tak­ing a wicket in the sec­ond over and then bowl­ing Roshan for a duck.

Opener So­haib (26) and keeper Zameer (35) set­tled down to steady things be­fore a bril­liant leg-side catch by keeper Luke Wild off the bowl­ing of Tom Gaskell who then bowled Zameer to close on 2-35.

A cameo knock from Eldo came to an end on 29 when he was bowled by the re­turn­ing Alex Grimes, who also ac­counted for Fa­had and Kabin to fin­ish with 3-14.

Andy McKeith pol­ished off the in­nings with 2-13 to see Mere all out for 127, leav­ing Ker­ridge a mas­sive 63 overs to gain the points.

Alan Har­bige and Matt Roberts be­gan well for the visi­tors, putting on a solid 52 for the first wicket be­fore Roberts was yorked for 43 by So­haib.

McKeith then joined in with his maiden 50 for the Clarke Lane out­fit, in­clud­ing six sixes, tak­ing the score to 91 be­fore Har­bidge de­parted.

When McKeith left at 111-3 the game was al­most won but keep­er­turned-bowler Zameer came into the at­tack and caused a few wob­bles with 3-7 be­fore Ker­ridge reached their tar­get with six wick­ets down to take the points.

Old Parko­ni­ans visit Clarke Lane on Satur­day for their next match.

All of the re­main­ing games start at 1pm.
