Prest­bury miss out

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - BILL LIVES­LEY

PREST­BURY fell ag­o­nis­ingly short of a draw at Ash­ton on Mersey.

Matty Gray got an early break­through, bowl­ing Thomason for four, fol­lowed by Lines (16) and O’Gara (0) had Ash­ton at 35 for 3.

Matty Gray took all three for 22 but Ash­ton dug in to de­velop a good score. Timbs (52) and Eastham (63) helped them to 231-8.

Some be­low par field­ing didn’t help Prest­bury’s cause as Gray fin­ished with 4 for 68 and skip­per Ben Oakes 3 for 48.

Prest­bury’s top five has been a prob­lem this sea­son and again proved the same this time.

Only Tom Lives­ley (20) and Rami Iyer (12) got into dou­ble fig­ures.

The mid­dle or­der did well with Aquell Ahmed 30 and Mafaz 32 and a last wicket stand of 37 be­tween Conor (22no) and Gray (21) got so close to a draw un­til the last wicket fell in the 44th over.
