Beaten but pride in­tact for Prest­bury

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - BILL LIVES­LEY

PREST­BURY made a good fist of it against league lead­ers Lin­dow but fell to de­feat.

They won toss and Ben Oakes put Lin­dow in on a damp wicket.

Lin­dow bat­ted well with Tay­lor (23) of­fer­ing sup­port to Tyler (73) and Yates (67).

Prest­bury were not as sharp in the field as in pre­vi­ous weeks but best bowl­ing fig­ures were from Joe Sed­don (2 for 20) backed up by Ju­lian McGovern (2 for 51).

Cameron Kirkland was un­lucky only to get 1 for 31 so Lin­dow set a to­tal of 238 for 6 off 40 overs.

Prest­bury openers Rami Iyer (6) and Ju­lian McGovern (23) got things go­ing, Conor Hi­bel (4) and Tom Lives­ley (15) got Prest­bury to 111 for 4.

But wick­ets kept fall­ing – Rom­mel Gon­dal (3), Ab­dul­lah Waseem (0) – leav­ing Aqueel Ahmed to hold on he made a su­perb 67, his high­est first team score.

But when he was run out the in­nings soon closed de­spite 17 from Karun Savardekar, Joe Sed­don ( 1), Ben Oakes ( 5) and Cameron Kirkland ( 3 not out).

Over­all, a good ef­fort against the top team in the league who will be go­ing into the Cheshire County League for the first time in the club’s history.
