The sec­onds had a good win with five wickets for Cameron Kirk­land.

How­ever, Bred­bury reached the tar­get in the 44th over to progress to the next round.

In that week­end’s league game against Heaton Mersey, Tom Livesley again led the way with 63, well sup­ported by Dom Asquith (38).

How­ever, it was a be­low par to­tal of 141 all out and Heaton Mersey reached the tar­get in 35 overs.
