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.
