Vic­tory sets up Pott’s top of the ta­ble clash

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - GRA­HAM HACK­NEY

A SU­PER sunny day at Pott Shrigley saw Holmes Chapel en­joy­ing tak­ing first knock on a flat pitch.

Af­ter only 12 overs they had rat­tled up 115 for 1 then the in­tro­duc­tion of Ja­son Hanaghan 5 -35 and Matt Jack­son 3-44 saw the rest of Chapel’s bat­ting col­lapse to a re­spectable to­tal of 183 all out.

Shrigley made a slow start af­ter los­ing the early wicket of Alex Jack­son. This brought Jamie Hart to join Matt Tarr. Slowly with solid bat­ting they took con­trol be­fore Tarr opened his shoul­ders to clear the bound­ary sev­eral times, mean­while Hart be­gan to cut and drive in his ef­fort­less man­ner.

Chapel had no an­swer to the stroke play of the Pott pair.

Their un­beaten part­ner­ship with Tarr 85* and Hart 78* took Shrigley to a vi­tal vic­tory. All bodes well for a top of the ta­ble clash next week.

An­other tight match for the sec­onds saw them come so close to tak­ing all the points but just missed out as Traf­ford tip­toed home with the last pair in­tact.
