GREAT players meeting on Tuesday. Some fantastic discussion points about the future of our club, local cricket and the Greater Manchester situation in general. So where do we go from here? The next forty (or so) days will change the future of local cricket forever. Watch this space.

The firsts were dumped into the bottom two on Saturday after a disappointing batting display in the face of Mo Bux’s slow medium line and length bowling in conditions that suited him down to a tee. After Ben Chapman had turned 70-1 into 70-3 in four balls, the Rochdale innings looked like crumbling away at 99-6 and 116-7, but a stubborn eighth wicket partnership took the score to 190 with, for the second week running, all five bowlers taking wickets. Sadly, also for the second week running, the top order crumled quickly and despite Dean Morris’ attempts, he lost partners regularly. Joe Brown then provided the brightest spot of the innings with eight fours and a six in his 44 before being last man out and the under strength side went down to a 81 run defeat with eight batsmen failing to reach double figures. Pic Dean tries to rescue the situation.

 

Once again there were no such blues for the seconds who also managed to eke wickets from every bowler used in an attack which must be the most potent in the division having taken 49 wickets in five games and conceded only 539 runs. This time it was Danny Hill who caught the eye with 3-31 as Rochdale managed only 123 in response to 204 in which Liam Dorsey and Ian Morris scored half centuries. The only down-spot was the poor showing of the lower middle and late order which took the score from 145-3 to 189-9 before Danny Hill unleashed two fours and a six to take the score past 200. Moz would have been disappointed though, to see the innings close with 11 balls still remaining.

 

The thirds continued the poor batting theme by only posting 103 at Westhoughton on a decent looking wicket. Gary Royle (38) and Sam Brown (29) were the only ones who showed any mastery over the bowling and despite two wickets in successive deliveries from debutant 14 year old Sarfraz Jan, they went down to a comprehensive 7 wicket defeat. Pic – Barty also chasing a lost cause.
