Poyn­ton still blow­ing hot and cold

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - MARTIN SAXON

POYN­TON con­tin­ued their re­cent record of win­ning al­ter­nate matches, and have also won all but one of their home matches to date.

Si­mon Dunn con­tin­ued his ex­cel­lent re­cent form, rac­ing to 75 from 83 de­liv­er­ies in typ­i­cally ag­gres­sive style to record a per­sonal first team ca­reer best.

Nathan Bax­ter again out­lined his bat­ting abil­i­ties by scor­ing 32 in an open­ing stand of 112 with Dunn.

Things were never quite so good there­after, as Jar­ryd Phillips bagged five wick­ets, but Poyn­ton had cer­tainly posted a com­pet­i­tive to­tal.

Poyn­ton com­pleted the vic­tory by bowl­ing out the visi­tors in just 33 overs.

There was a flurry of early wick­ets for Jimmy Wil­liams, another Poyn­ton player in ex­cel­lent form in re­cent weeks, and Andy Heath blasted out the lower or­der.

The chal­lenge now for Poyn­ton is to start win­ning more away games, and to put to­gether back-to-back wins for the first time since the open­ing two week­ends of the sea­son.

This quest con­tin­ues at Heaton Mersey on Satur­day
