Tan­ner tri­umph for Stags

Middleton Guardian - - LEISURE - LES BAR­LOW

JOSH Tol­ley took his bat­ting av­er­age for the last three JW Lees Pen­nine League matches past the 300 mark on Satur­day.

But this time round he was out for 56 when the ball came off an edge and onto the stumps in the Tan­ner Cup sec­ond round match against Sad­dle­worth.

By the time he was out Stags had 94 on the board chas­ing a tar­get of only 120.

Jack Har­ri­son was out for two, and af­ter Tol­ley had gone, Thomas Booth fell for the same score.

The match ended with dad and lad at the crease. Dom Humphreys played some nice shots in his un­beaten 27, and dad Chris Humphreys was nine not out, eight of those runs com­ing off the last two de­liv­er­ies.

The Sad­dle­worth in­nings never re­ally got go­ing.

Brian Lord was caught be­hind by Ash Gow­ers, and Chris Hart­ley struck again when Greg Butterworth took a catch to see off As­sad Ali.

Sam Holt and Im­ran Aslam tried to re­pair the early dam­age and took the to­tal up to 66 be­fore Im­ran got a lead­ing edge and pre­sented Naveed Za­mu­rad with a re­turn catch.

Daniel Poole was caught at mid-wicket by Hart­ley, then Sam Holt was bowled mid­dle stump by Za­mu­rad.

James Howard was trapped leg be­fore by Greg Butterworth, Danny Hes­ford was trapped leg be­fore by Za­mu­rad, and it was 91 for seven.

Za­mu­rad had four for 28 but was re­placed at the Wood­house Lane end by Simon North who de­mol­ished the tail end with three for three.

Sharif was caught by Greg Butterworth, Steven Howard was bowled mid­dle stick, and Jack Boyle saw his mid­dle stump up­rooted.
