Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - GRA­HAM HACKNEY

POTT Shrigley took 13 points from their open­ing game against Wins­ford.

Matt Tarr and Alex Jack­son opened the sea­son with a great start, tak­ing the score into the 50s be­fore the at­tack­ing in­nings of Tarr (27) came to an end, caught off a high one.

Jack­son (22) then ran him­self out hav­ing bat­ted re­ally well with some su­perb cover drives.

Another quick wicket fell be­fore Jamie Hart (34) and Andy Mathe­son (24) stead­ied the mid­dle or­der. Ja­son Hanaghan’s 38 then pro­vided the late mo­men­tum to see Pott reach 175-8.

Right from the start steady bowl­ing by Shrigley kept Wins­ford be­hind the over rate.

At 70-1, Wins­ford ap­peared set to push on but then lost four wick­ets for 20 runs and the game pe­tered out de­spite Pott us­ing eight bowlers in try­ing to temp bats­men into mis­takes.

Mathe­son and Fit­ter each picked up two wick­ets and Bar­low one.

It was a good all round dis­play, giv­ing Pott some­thing to build on in fu­ture weeks.
