H MERSEY VIL­LAGE .. 179 KER­RIDGE .................182/6

HEATON Mersey made the short trip over from Parrs Wood to Clark Lane with the away side win­ning the toss and elect­ing to bat.

With seem­ingly per­fect bat­ting con­di­tions and a quick out­field field­ing was al­ways go­ing to be tough.

Ker­ridge had the early break­through when Neil Banks bowled Sa­muels for two with the score on nine.

A stand of 53 for the sec­ond wicket be­tween Parch­ment and Graham ended when the for­mer edged be­hind to keeper Wild, again from Banks (2/38). With the in­tro­duc­tion of spin from McKeith and the left arm seam of Ry­der, wick­ets be­gan to fall more regularly with Ry­der claim­ing the scalp of Graham af­ter re­ar­rang­ing his stumps for 65.

McKeith ac­counted for Camp­bell (4) and Ge­orge (4) both LBW be­fore hav­ing Newell (25) snaf­fled at mid wicket to leave the visi­tors 118/6.

Ry­der had Charles caught be­hind thanks to a very sharp div­ing catch low to keeper Wild’s right hand side to fin­ish with (2/48). Wil­liams (10) be­came McKeith’s fourth vic­tim, leav­ing him with fig­ures of 4/37 with Josh Cap­per (2/15) clear­ing up the tail to leave Heaton Mersey 179 all out in­side 38 overs when a score in ex­cess of 240 seemed to par for the con­di­tions.

With a max­i­mum 52 overs to chase vic­tory, Ker­ridge were con­fi­dent of do­ing so with the help of the rapid out­field and a medium-paced bowl­ing
