De­fi­ant Solomons rolls back the years

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

CRICKET AN un­beaten century from Adam Solomons helped Lon­don Mac­cabi Vale get their Chess Val­ley League pro­mo­tion bid back on track with an im­pres­sive six-wicket suc­cess at Tot­teridge.

Man-of-the-match Solomons capped an ex­cel­lent per­for­mance with a su­perb div­ing catch in the field as Tot­teridge fin­ished on 206-9 from 45 overs. Joseph Ny­man, Alex Spooner and Joseph Green­wall-Co­hen im­pressed with the ball.

LMV’s re­ply got off to a stut­ter­ing start as two calami­tous run-outs left them on 30-4. But Alex Haffner and Solomons stead­ied the ship to steer LMV home with a part­ner­ship of 177. Solomons fin­ished un­beaten on 119, with Haffner reg­is­ter­ing his first 50 of the sea­son.

S o ut h Manch­ester’s GMACL ti­tle hopes suf­fered a blow as they went down by 17 runs in a low-scor­ing con­test against Wilm­slow. South started with only 10 play­ers and strug­gled against the league’s bot­tom club. Steven All­weis (5-22) was the star per­former with the ball as Wilm­slow reached 147. Miss­ing five top-or­der bats­men, they fell ag­o­nis­ingly short de­spite the best ef­fort of Ray Tam­mam (29) and All­weis.
