Academy toasting double success
MACCLESFIELD Cricket Academy achieved success in both Under-11 and Under-13 tournaments at the annual Bank Holiday Monday Sixes Festival at Pott Shrigley CC, which was again well hosted by the home club.
The Under-11 competition comprised a round robin league in which Macclesfield remained unbeaten, culminating in an exciting final game against a strong Alderley Edge side with Macclesfield just squeezing home thanks to some tight bowling in the final overs.
In the Under-13 competition, Macclesfield topped the league and faced a resilient Bollington side in the final.
Macclesfield’s total of 52 off the five overs allowed proved just out of Bollington’s reach.
Some excellent cricket was played all day in the right spirit and in beautiful surroundings.
