Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE - BILL LIVESLEY

PREST­BURY cap­tain Ben Oakes won the toss and de­cided to bat.

Adam Philips and Steve Old­field started the in­nings with a part­ner­ship of 22 be­fore Old­field was caught for 5.

This brought in Tre­mayne Ry­der who with Philips took the score onto 46.

when Tyler de­parted for 10, runs at this time were dif­fi­cult to get but with Guri Singh at the wicket he and Philips kept the score­board tick­ing over and brought up the 100 and it wasn’t un­til the score was 134 that Philips was out caught for a fine 63 off 109 balls.

a good base was made for Aqeel Ahmed to push the score on in the last 8 overs and he did just that; scorn­ing 50 off 25 balls with 5 sixes and with the help of Singh, they took the sore to 200 be­fore Ahmed was su­perbly caught on the bound­ary.

Sam Crosby came in and ended up 2 not out with Singh 53 not out.

the in­nings closed on 204 for 4 off 45 overs. Stock­port started their in­nings after tea, need­ing 205 but lost an early wicket to Singh.

soon he had two wick­ets when he had Grindey lbw 27 for 2 .

Stock­port Trin­ity dug in and took the score to 114, when Ry­der got Hig­gin­botham caught by that man Singh for 37 then Singh also had shaw caught by Old­field for 52.

Prest­bury needed to push their ad­van­tage. Ry­der did get the wicket of Sa­muels, bowled.

Some dropped catches proved costly as the next wicket didn’t fall un­til the 41st over when Singh had Potts caught by Philips for 12.

The only other wicket to fall was in the last over when Ahmed bowled Jones, so Stock­port trin­ity fin­ished on 166 for 7 off 45 bowl­ing fig­ures Singh 4 for 41 Ry­der 2 for 3.

Prest­bury’s man of the match was Adam Philips

Prest­bury picked up 16 points and take on Chelford at home next Satur­day.
