Southport Visiter - - Visiter Life -

LIVER­POOL’S crick­eters proved they could take the long road to pro­mo­tion when they de­feated Wavertree by 44 runs to open up a 48-point gap be­tween them­selves and the third-placed Sandown Lane club.

Matt Jack­son’s bats­men took 62.5 overs to com­pile 162 runs, Henry Charl­ton mak­ing 55.

But their pa­tience was jus­ti­fied as Josh Birch’s team were dis­missed for 118 when push­ing for the win they needed.

As so of­ten this sea­son, the spin­ners were in­stru­men­tal in a Liver­pool win, Jared Clein tak­ing 5-62 and Peter Kelly 3-35.

Sec­ond-placed Spring View had things much eas­ier in their ninewicket de­feat of Prescot & Odyssey, a re­sult which opened up a use­ful gap be­tween the Wi­gan side and the chas­ing pack.

Amar Ul­lah took 4-14 and Saif ur Rehman 4-17 as the bot­tom-placed team were dis­missed for 67, a target which Spring View’s bats­men over­hauled in 13.1 overs.

Maghull re­main in the hunt for a pro­mo­tion spot af­ter they over­whelmed Park­field Lis­card by 151 runs.

Wil­liam Mashinge made 100 not out off 98 balls while Paul Wal­ters and Joe Camp­bell con­trib­uted 50s to a mas­sive 282-6 dec.

That proved far too many for the Wir­ral side, who were bowled out for 131, Cam Lawren­son tak­ing 7-28.

South­port Trin­ity’s Hay­den McCrae scored 91 not out in his side’s three-wicket de­feat of Caldy to pass 1,000 league runs for the sea­son.

Sean Cragg and Scott Fran­cis had ear­lier taken three wick­ets apiece in Caldy’s 182 all out be­fore Chris Ed­wards took 5-73 to check Trin­ity’s pur­suit.

McCrae steered his team home, hit­ting nine fours.

Alder en­joyed a tense five-run vic­tory over St He­lens Town.

In­ter­dip Singh snared 5-35 as the vis­i­tors man­aged only 161 in re­ply to 166.
