Hat-trick hero Clark­son gets hard graft re­warded

The Cricket Paper - - ECB PREMIER LEAGUES - By Char­lie Peat

MARK Clark­son was the hero last week­end as his su­perb hat-trick helped Nether­field pum­mel ri­vals Chor­ley and take a giant stride to­wards the North­ern Pre­mier League ti­tle but there is no great se­cret to his suc­cess – sim­ply hard work.

Clark­son took 5-21 in a re­mark­able spell to help the lead­ers skit­tle se­cond-placed Chor­ley for just 77, even­tu­ally win­ning the match by seven wick­ets.

The seamer clean bowled opener Stu­art Naden and No.3 Will Moul­ton in con­sec­u­tive balls be­fore com­plet­ing the hat-trick by trap­ping Alexan­der Howarth LBW, and his cap­tain Ben Bar­row was thrilled to see per­se­ver­ance reap its re­wards.

The 26-year-old said: “We were look­ing for­ward to the game, first against se­cond is a big match, it was very pleas­ing to see how we did, par­tic­u­larly with the ball.
