Bolly make light of struggling rivals
BOLLINGTON travelled to bottom of the league Tattenhall this week, and were looking to exploit their early frailties at this stage in the season.
Bollington won the toss and elected to field first.
Harri Dickinson opened the bowling, and was up against fellow Cheshire Under 17 Henry Dobson and first ball of the game saw Dobson’s off stump taken out of the ground.
Another great start from Bollington set the tone as the home side never looked in the game.
Wickets fell continually, with Binder doing the majority of the damage, starting with Siebert and thereafter an almighty collapse. The next six wickets were taken for just 56 as Binder tore through the middle order, and left him with career best figures of 7-21 of 15 overs, including eight maidens. Bollington were well on top, as the scores were 69-8.
There was an array of fine catches from Plant, who held three in the slips, a great low catch from H Dickinson and another fine stumping from Ged Mckernan.
The remaining two wickets came from Stuart Plant (1-13) and Tom Horsfield (1-20) to bowl the host out for 98 of 40 overs.
It was after tea when frustration kicked in for the visitors, a quick fire 33 runs scored between H. Dickinson (23) and R. Hough (10) was not enough as the rain came to wash out the game.
Frustratingly this result sees Bollington miss out on 18 points for the second time this season.
Next week Bollington welcome Oulton Park to the recreation ground in a highly anticipated fixture.
