POYN­TON CC MARTIN SAXON ROMI­LEY ............... 120-9 POYN­TON ............. 121-4

POYN­TON bossed this match against their neigh­bours, and af­ter de­feat­ing two of the hotly-tipped sides in the open­ing two week­ends, they have ev­ery rea­son to feel op­ti­mistic about their hopes of bounc­ing straight back with a pro­mo­tion.

Damian Stringer has re­turned to Poyn­ton once again this sea­son, and the ex­pe­ri­enced all rounder played a ma­jor role in this victory.

Jimmy Wil­liams got Poyn­ton off to a great start, with a su­perbly con­sis­tent spell of 2-13 in 11 overs. But Stringer again played the ma­jor role, re­cov­er­ing from a shaky start to take 4-47 in 17 overs. There was also a first wicket for the club for over­seas player Nathan Bax­ter, thanks to an ex­cel­lent catch from Jon Hadley.

Tom Rolph top scored for Romi­ley with a classy 46, dom­i­nat­ing the scor­ing while he was at the crease.

Mark Flat­t­ley re­moved both Poyn­ton open­ers in his open­ing spell, but Stringer got to­gether with Chris Wil­liams to take the game away from Romi­ley – ro­tat­ing the strike well, which was pos­si­bly the main dif­fer­ence be­tween the two teams. Wil­liams made 29 and Stringer re­mained un­de­feated on 45 to bring home the points once again.
