Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - MARTIN SAXON

AF­TER their first win the week be­fore, it was dis­ap­point­ing that Poyn­ton fell to de­feat against lo­cal ri­vals Stock­port Ge­or­gians.

Dan Hares­nape made 52 – his maiden first team 50 – and James Longhorn also con­tin­ued his good form with 35 as the pair added 92 for the first wicket. How­ever, Adam Wil­liams with 27 was the only one to reach dou­ble fig­ures there­after, and with James Locke record­ing 5-55, Poyn­ton sub­sided to 136-7 in 38 overs in this rain re­duced match.

In the sec­ond in­nings, Andy Heath took three wick­ets for the sec­ond week in suc­ces­sion, but Hayden Bai­ley’s 46 led the way as Ge­or­gians com­pleted a five wicket win in only 27 overs.

Af­ter an un­cer­tain start to the sea­son, vic­tory the week be­fore came as an im­mense re­lief to Poyn­ton. Irby were dis­missed for just 74 be­fore Poyn­ton com­pleted their run chase with few alarms and only two wick­ets down.

Tom Ham­nett had looked good with the new ball in the first two matches, but here he re­ally sur­passed him­self, record­ing 6-25 in 15 overs. Andy Heath also played a ma­jor role with 3-17 in 10 overs as Irby went from 18 for no loss to 46-7 and then 74 all out.

Dan Hares­nape made 34 and James Longhorn on his re­turn to the club fin­ished 23 not out in the suc­cess­ful run chase.
