Lilley in­spires Nor­den’s down­fall at Glebe

Rochdale Observer - - TRAVEL -

THE curtain came down on Nor­den’s sea­son on Sun­day with the last act in the play hav­ing gone hor­ri­bly wrong.

Stags to­talled 185 for four in their 32 overs, and then took the first two Cromp­ton wick­ets with­out cost.

But Lan­cashire’s Aaron Lilley, on the field as Cromp­ton’s deputy pro­fes­sional, then set Glebe Street alight with a blis­ter­ing 83 which led to a D LS win­ning to­tal of 194 for six.

Once the mop­ping up had been com­pleted Josh Tol­ley and Har­vey Fit­ton set about the bowl­ing. Fit­ton was first to fall, on 97, hav­ing scored 67.

Joe Humphreys scored a bright 35, and Tol­ley was bowled by Lilley for 56.

Jake Sand­ham and Chris Humphreys each picked up early wick­ets thanks to catches by Lee Crab­tree and Steve Pimm, but Lilley and De­nis Louis then put on 129 be­fore the lat­ter was caught by Chris Humphreys.

Si­mon Wright went cheaply, but Cromp­ton were well on their way at 173 when Lilley was caught be­hind, his knock hav­ing in­cluded seven fours and six sixes.

Harry Dean and Stephen Wright then saw Cromp­ton over the line.
