Poyn­ton’s pro­mo­tion bid starts on right track

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - MARTIN SAXON

REL­E­GATED to the Cheshire League for the first time, Poyn­ton’s quest to bounce back im­me­di­ately got off to a per­fect start with a com­fort­able win over hotly tipped Stock­port Ge­or­gians.

Ge­or­gians’ scor­ing rate over their 45 overs scarcely rose above three per over as Poyn­ton’s attack did a su­perb job.

Damian Stringer, back for an­other spell with the club, re­turned 3-45 in 18 overs. Hay­den Bai­ley’s 85 com­pletely dom­i­nated the Ge­or­gians card.

Af­ter ini­tially re­tir­ing at the end of 2012, Brian King­ham ex­pects to play the ma­jor­ity of matches this year, and it was just like old times as he walked out to open with Paul Gould. King­ham made 16 in an open­ing stand of 25, then Gould added an­other 63 with Adam Wil­liams.

Gould de­parted for 43, one of the vic­tims of James Locke in his spell of 2-21 in 12 overs, but Wil­liams re­mained stead­fast to the end, record­ing an un­beaten 52.
