An­other set­back for Poyn­ton

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - MARTIN SAXON

POYN­TON slipped to an­other dis­ap­point­ing de­feat at home to Hale Barns.

There were de­cent con­tri­bu­tions from four of their top six, with Adam Wil­liams and Jon Hadley both mak­ing 21, Mark Co­ram 17 and Si­mon Dunn 16. How­ever, there was again no sig­nif­i­cant in­nings from any­one. Both open­ers fell cheaply and then num­bers seven to nine failed to score a run be­tween them as the in­nings sub­sided from 71-4 to 83-9.

Andy Heath scored 20 at num­ber 10 to take Poyn­ton into three fig­ures, but their fi­nal score of 102 never looked likely to be enough.

Hale Barns’ talented Aus­tralian all rounder She­han Fer­nando had an ex­cel­lent match, tak­ing 4-28 and then mak­ing the top score of 29 not out as his side com­pleted a four wicket win. Dave Sadding­ton also took 5-26 in the Poyn­ton in­nings.

Poyn­ton also suf­fered a first round exit in the Cheshire League’s T20 knock­out com­pe­ti­tion, as Heaton Mersey racked up an im­pos­ing 159-4, and Poyn­ton could only re­ply with 67-9, de­spite a run a ball 28 from Mark Or­pen.
