Pott Shrigley 1st XI v Chapel-en-le-Frith – Away

Pott Shrigley 163 all out  –  Chapel-en-le-Frith 52 all out.

Pott triumph in statement win. 
On a cloudy afternoon after a morning of drizzle Pott Shrigley lost the toss and were put in to bat. After the early loss of Fletcher in the first over for 0 caught at slip from the bowling of Hallam, Cleaver well assisted by Dunn made a devastating start which saw Pott score 91 off the first 10 overs. Cleaver particularly took a liking to the length of youngster Beal, dispatching him for several 4’s and 2 straight 6’s.  The first change bowling of Chapel-en-le-frith’s Burgess & Smith rained back in the rampant attacking batting from Pott and balanced the game at 110-4 at the drinks interval after the loss of Cleaver for [67], Dunn for [19] and A.Jackson for [9] all caught out in the cover ring. Anderson-Fitter & Coram we’re unable to capitalise on steady starts being stifled by the lack of pace from Burgess & Smith.  The loss of Coram [11] & Anderson-Fitter [11] saw Pott Shrigley in an uneasy position 123-6 after 30 overs.  The experienced Paul Cocks patiently crafted 18 and with able assistance from Bridgford & Cawthorn to take Pott to a defendable total of 163 at tea.  Cleaver top scoring with 60, Hallam with figures of 5 wickets for 48 from 11 overs and Burgess with 4 wickets for 27 off 12.
Chapel made a steady start to their innings with Jackson & Gyte cautiously taking Chapel to 16 before the loss of the first wicket.  It was pace bowler Cawthorn who made the breakthrough for Pott, trapping Gyte LBW in front of middle stump with a quick full delivery.  Bridgford then got straight into the action taking the next 3 wickets for the loss of just 7 runs including a LBW, a caught behind from keeper Dunn and a excellent over the shoulder towering catch from Anderson-Fitter leaving Chapel 25-5.  Cawthorn, not to be left out at the other end then took the key wicket of opener Jackson with a short pitched delivery that Jackson could only fend off to Fletcher at backward point.  Bridgford and Cawthorn continued to clean up the tail end and bowled Chapel out for the loss of just 52 runs.  Bridgeford finishing with figures of 7 wickets for 28 runs off 10 overs and Cawthorn 3 wickets for 22 from 10 overs, Jackson top scoring for Chapel with 15.  The result leaves Pott Shrigley joint top of the Derbyshire & Cheshire League Division 3

Pott Shrigley  2nd XI v Chapel-en-le-Frith – Home

Chapel-en-le-Frith 55 all out –  Pott Shrigley  – 56 – 8

This game was a tense match with the bowlers on top from the word go.

No batsman in the home team managed to get to double figures, extras being top scorer on 12. With the score on 21 Rich Caslaw made the breakthrough taking two wickets. Will Richardson then grabbed a caught and bowled. Rich was the joined in the attack by Dan Allerton and between them sent Chapel back for what looked at the time was a poor 55 all out. Rich Caslaw super figures of 5-17 and Dan Allerton 4- 7  and Will Richardson 1-16.

Again wickets tumbled and with Pott  teetering on 19-5, Chapel were in with a chance.  Pott struggled to 36 – 8 when the two star bowlers came together again. Amazingly, Rich Caslaw was the only batsman on the day to reach double figures. His 16 not out was top score and along with Dan Allerton’s 6 not out they inched the Hillmen over the line in a dramatic finale. No nails left.

Pott Shrigley 1st XI v Offerton –  Home

Offerton 111 all out. Pott Shrigley 112 – 1

The Hillmen put on another top class performance. Offerton won the toss and batted first but the early batsmen could not handle  opening bowlers Adam Cawthorn 5 – 49, his best return so far, and Rich Caslaw 3 – 8, one being a good catch in the deep by young Dan Allerton. Their attack and flair saw the visitors sink to 29 – 6. Only a stand of 77 by Simpson and Ryles gave them any hope at all. Skipper fitter took the last two wickets which saw Offerton 111 all out.

A positive opening stand of 78 by Simon Dunn and  Sam Cleaver set the tone. Despite losing Dunn for 21 Cleaver smashed his way to 76 not out, seeing Pott home at 112 – 1.
