GRA­HAM HACK­NEY POTT Shrigley con­tin­ued their un­beaten start to the sea­son with a com­pre­hen­sive vic­tory at Tran­mere Vic­to­ria.

Tran­mere Vic­to­ria won the toss and elected to bat and Shrigley’s bowlers re­stricted them to 157.

For Shrigley, Matt Jack­son took 6 for 56.

In re­ply, Alex Jack­son an­chored the in­nings with 53 not out, with good support from Phil Beard (35) and skip­per Ryan Fit­ter (32).

Shrigley are well placed in fourth po­si­tion in the league and await the visit of Mar­itime to Shrigley Park on Satur­day.

Pott Shrigley sec­onds took on Traf­ford Metro­vics at home at the week­end and en­joyed a con­vinc­ing vic­tory.

A tremen­dous per­for­mance by the sec­onds saw them rat­tle up a mas­sive 255 for three.

Bar­low and Hart opened steadily tak­ing the score to 34 be­fore Bar­low went to a jug­gling catch in the deep.

This brought Shaun Wil­son in and along with Hart dom­i­nated the vis­it­ing bowl­ing with pow­er­ful shots all round the ground.

Hart was even­tu­ally dis­missed for 70 then tradegdy struck as Wil­son was bowled on 99.

A great in­nings putting Pott in con­trol. Jon Wilkie (50) con­tin­ued in the same vein.

Dixon’s con­trol and flight then proved too much for Traf­ford, his 4-31 put them out of the race and they sub­sided to 123 all out.
