Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - BILL LIVESLEY

PREST­BURY beat Win­ning­ton Park to keep the pres­sure on sec­ond placed Poyn­ton – who lost on Satur­day.

Cap­tain Ben Oakes lost the toss and Prest­bury were asked to bat. Steve Old­field and Robin Farmer opened the bat­ting and within eight bal­lls farmer was out with­out scor­ing.

Old­field was joined by Aqeel Ahmed and they took the score on to 51 when Ahmed was out caught for 27. Guri Singh came into bat and took the score with Old­field to 75 off 19 overs.

But Old­field’s pa­tient in­nings came to an end when he was caught on 40. Tom Livesley stayed around with Singh and they took the score to 104 when Livesley was out.

Ben Mil­ner came in and un­for­tu­nately was caught for one, so a 200 score looked un­likely when Singh was out for 30 at 118 for 6. This brought Tre­mayne Ry­der to the wicket, so, with Ben McKeever, he needed to stay around. They took the score to 154 off 40 overs when Sam Gild­ing came into sup­port Ry­der

Be­tween them they moved the to­tal onto 171 when Gild­ing was out lbw for 7. Ben oakes came in to bat and in the 45th over Ry­der hit three sixes and went to 56 not out, Oakes with two not out, giv­ing the ex­tra push Prest­bury needed to end on 199 off 45 overs.

Af­ter tea, Win­ning­ton Park needed 200. Richard­son and Room opened and raced to 17 off 11 balls but Ry­der bowled Richard­son 11 and Singh caught and bowled Room mak­ing it 17 for 2. It was soon 21 for 3 as Koul­beck was caught by wicket keeper Ahmed for two, bowled by Ry­der.

With the score on 29 two wick­ets fell – hendry caught Ahmed, bowled Ry­der and Wales also caught Ahmed bowled Singh.

Win­ning­ton Park lost their sixth wicket when King was bowled by Gild­ing for one and Singh had Butcher lbw for 14.

Evans and Amatiello took the score to 90 but Singh had Amatiello lbw for 7 and soon Evans was out for 40, caught Gild­ing, bowled Ry­der. The last wicket went to Singh when Con­nor was caught by Cameron Kirkland for 1 giv­ing Singh a five wicket haul for 33. Man of the match went to Ry­der with 56 not out and 4 for 21.
