Poyn­ton bat­ting woes once again ex­posed

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - MARTIN SAXON

AF­TER los­ing their first match and see­ing the sec­ond washed out, Poyn­ton’s dis­ap­point­ing start con­tin­ued at Run­corn.

Sev­eral play­ers have de­parted over the win­ter, and the bat­ting depart­ment may prove to be Poyn­ton’s Achilles heel.

Here only Adam Wil­liams (66) and Jon Hadley (26 not out) made scores of note, as much of the dam­age was done by Nathan McNi­col with 5-49. Run­corn look to have found them­selves an­other very good over­seas player.

Earlier, not ev­ery­thing went to plan for Poyn­ton with the ball ei­ther, and in­jured cap­tain Jimmy Wil­liams was much missed here.

From a par­lous po­si­tion, Run­corn’ s last four wick­ets added 123, via 45 from Richard Watt, 41 from David McNa­mara and 27 from Sam Row­land.

Poyn­ton new ball bowler Tom Ham­nett con­tin­ued his ex­cel­lent start to the sea­son with a 4-44 re­turn, and Hadley (3-20) also re­turned ex­cel­lent fig­ures.
