Ker­ridge’s bat­ting runs dry up in rain

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

LEAGUE lead­ers Bow­don Vale were the visi­tors to Clarke Lane on Saturday where af­ter a brief de­lay for rain Ker­ridge won the toss and bat­ted first.

Runs have been hard to come by so far this sea­son and was again the case as many of the lads got off the mark easy enough but couldn’t hang about to cause any real dam­age, with a good few play­ing on.

John Grayston held the mid­dle or­der to­gether with Alex Grimes and a late spurt from Carl Ry­der and Chris Heapy saw the home side scrape past 100 be­fore even­tu­ally fin­ish­ing on 10. Jake Drape (4/19) and Harry Mills (3/23) in­flict­ing the dam­age for the Vale.

With rain com­ing again the visi­tors were made to wait for their in­nings but af­ter fi­nally get­ting a break in the weather they were able to knock off the runs quite eas­ily. K Ra­ja­man with 56* and S Hop­ton with 22 com­fort­ably se­cur­ing the win within 20 overs. Ker­ridge had man­aged to peg them back slightly tak­ing 3 wick­ets along the way with Grimes (1/13) and Adam Banks (2/21) the wicket tak­ers.

Ker­ridge now have two weeks to wait be­fore hope­fully bounc­ing back when Ros­th­erne travel over on June 10.

Thanks to match­ball spon­sors on the day, Mr & Mrs G As­tle
