Ker­ridge find form at last

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE - ADAM BANKS

AF­TER some poor re­sults of late, Ker­ridge fi­nally found some form with the bat at home to Mel­lor on Satur­day.

Af­ter be­ing in­vited to bat first Ker­ridge made 44 be­fore los­ing Alan Har­bige for 10.

Andy McKeith and Ste Re­gan added 66 be­fore McKeith holed out for 24.

Re­gan was the next to go for 69, a great knock which will be a huge con­fi­dence booster for him. Josh Cap­per and James Knight kept the mo­men­tum go­ing adding 74 be­fore Cap­per de­parted for 13 , when the 5th wicket went on 224 the last 5 overs were a joy to watch as Knight brought up his cen­tury as he despatched the bowlers to all parts to re­main un­beaten on 120* with Alex Grimes also 23*.

Ker­ridge fin­ished on 287/5 af­ter 45 overs.

Mel­lor in re­ply could only muster 66 runs in 42 overs (hav­ing lost 3 overs to the rain) for the loss of 7 wick­ets, with man of the match Knight tak­ing 4/16 off 14 overs.

Alex Grimes took 2/22 off 10 and Tom Gaskell 1/14 the other. Dis­ap­pointed not to se­cure a win but will take 16 points and a lot of heart from fi­nally see­ing ev­ery­one in the runs again.

Usual thanks go to the Match spon­sor on the day En­vi­rosafety Ltd.

Next up for Ker­ridge is a short trip over to Hart­ford
