Ker­ridge take bet­ter share of spoils

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - ADAM BANKS

AN away game at Ellesmere Port saw Ker­ridge win the toss and bat first in favourable con­di­tions with openers Ste Re­gan and Adam Banks putting on 49 for the first wicket be­fore Re­gan was trapped LBW for 38. Banks went next for 19 and Ker­ridge had a brief slump from 61/2 to 99/6 los­ing Josh Cap­per (5), John Grayston (3), Luke Wild (14) and Gareth Ed­wards (13).

Some fine bat­ting late on saw Alex Grimes (57 not out), Neil Banks (22) and Phil Raven­scroft (21) see Ker­ridge to 211/8 af­ter the 45 overs.

Af­ter tea the heav­ens opened and credit to both sides for con­tin­u­ing. With 30 overs played in rain many would have called the fix­ture off, but Groves amassed 179/4 in their overs with N Per­ci­val scor­ing 116, although some­what luck­ily hav­ing been dropped sev­eral times.

Alex Grimes took 3/57, Gareth Ed­wards claim­ing the other wicket. Not the finest day for cricket but Ker­ridge claimed 12 points to the hosts’ nine.

Next week­end sees a home game against Heaton Mersey with Ker­ridge look­ing to im­prove on the draw they had in the pre­vi­ous en­counter
