Pott Shrigley 1st  XI  Home   v  Dove Holes   12.30  start

Dove Holes 199 all out  Pott Shrigley 100  all out

Two early wickets from Shrigley bowlers Bridgford and Tatton saw Dove Holes at 32 for 2 but they steadily pulled things around with 37 from opener Jones and two hard hitting 50s from Forder and Gregory, to post a reasonable score of 199 all out. Once again the Shrigley fielding was very good with a stumping from Si Dunn plus four catches and a run out from Andy Matheson. Bridgford with three wickets for 34 led the attack with Phil Beard 2 for 35,  Ryan Anderson-Fitter 2 for 51,  Sam Cleaver 1 for 26 and Andy Tatton 1 for 46.

The Shrigley batting again struggled to get on top. Opener Tom Fletcher top scored with 24 but only two others reached double figures- James Samarji 18 and Steve Barlow 10 not out from their 36.5 overs, finishing well short.

Pott Shrigley 1st XI   Away   v   Tintwistle


Tintwistle  190 all out  –   Pott Shrigley   69  all out.

The Tintwistle openers Nixon (72) and Davis (26)  made an excellent start taking the score to 95 before the attacking Nixon fell bowled by Bridgford. The Shirgley bowlers then began to peg back the home side until Brown (40) came in batting at seven, helped by Robinson (16 n.o.) took the score to 190 all out. The four outfield  catches plus two from Si Dunn were vital in keeping the score down. Phil Beard (4 for 30)  led the bowlers followed by Ryan Anderson-Fitter 2 for 17, Matt Baqueriza- Jackson (2 for 33) and Bridgford 2 for 66 were the wicket takers.

Shrigley were already in trouble at 23 for 3 but worse was to follow as the middle order collapsed with three wickets falling on 30. Only three batters managed to reach double figures Sam Cleaver 12, Andy Tatton 10 and Matt Baqueriza- Jackson 10 but the innings soon fell away at 69  all out after only 28 overs.

August 14

Pott Shrigley 1st XI   Away   v   Broadbottom

Broadbottom  320 for 4    Pott Shrigley   191  for  8.

The Broadbottom track provided a run-fest in which the home XI came out on top.

Taking first use of the track the home side featured two batters who crashed the ball to all parts. Arron Walsh hit a wonderful 132 with eight 6s and fourteen fours, while Chris Cheetham – Roberts matched that with 120 not out with six 6s and thirteen 4s. This saw Broadbottom finishing on a massive 320 for  4.

Shrigley’s Tom Fletcher also joined the 100 club by batting though the innings with a determined knock of 102 not out. He was helped in a rear guard action by Matt Baqueriza- Jackson 23, James Hutter 18 and James William 12, ending on 191 for 8 but this could not match the the huge Broadbottom total.


Pott Shrigley 2nd  XI  Home   v  New Mills

New Mills  85 all out    Pott Shrigley  22  all out

In a low scoring game where ball was master over bat throughout,  Shrigley’s bowlers enjoyed the first half of the game. Jon Crook 3 for 18 saw off the first three batters then Vinny Allen 1 for 8 and a run oout saw New Mills rocking at 11 for 5 but Hayden Marsh’s 27 turned out to be match winner. The returning ever youthful Stewart Hackley (3 for 3) along with P J Singh (1 for 16) saw New Mills close on 85 all out, with Extras scoring a vital 25.

Shrigley never got going with the New Mills bowling far too good. Andy Hayes 5 for 5, Kai Harman 3 for 14  and Chris Bennet 1 for 1, soon put paid to any hopes of a win for Shrigley.

July 31

Pott Shrigley 1st XI   Away   v  Woodley  

Woodley 200 all out.   Pott Shrigley 149 all out.

Pott won the toss and inserted Woodley. The early bowlers led by Andy Tatton (4 for 41) and Phil Beard (2 for 43) kept chipping away at the home batters and at 90 for 6 were getting on top. The lower batting proved harder to remove. Ryan Anderson-Fitter (2 for 49), Jonny Dixon (1 for 19) and Dan Allerton (1 for 36) kept plugging away but Woodley pushed their way up to 200 all out.

Another decent start for Pott saw opener Tom Fletcher (21) fall first with the score at 49. Si Dunn  top scored with a vital 47 then went with the score on 66. But at 90 for 4 Pott were still in front. Ryan Anderson-Fitter (32 not out) helped by Andy Tatton 21 did their best to  see it through but when Andy went on 128 Shrigley’s batting slowly folded finishing on 149 all out.


Pott Shrigley 2nd  XI  Home   v   Hazel Grove

Pott Shrigley  59 all out  Hazel Grove  60  for 1

A much changed Shrigley side won the toss and batted first but only three managed to reach double figures. On his return Stewart Hackley (14), along with Sourabh Yadav (13) and Ajay Jha (12) tried to hold the innings together but the bowling of Hazel Grove proved to good as  Shrigley colapsed to 59 all out.

The consistent Vinny Allen had an LBW to make an early break through but that was the only bit of success as Grove cruised to a nine wicket win.


July 24

Pott Shrigley 1st XI    Home   v  Dinting

Pott Shrigley  95 all out.  Dinting  98 for 9

What a tremendous finish to a low scoring game. All seamed well for the Shrigley openers as the score reached 58-0, when Sam Cleaver was caught and bowled for another attacking innings of 38, of which 30 were boundaries. Tom Fletcher (20) went only four run later and this started a dramatic collapse. The next nine wickets quickly tumbled for only 33 runs, only James William managing to reach double figures. Pott were shot out for 95.

Dinting’s start was worse than Shrigley’s at 9 for 2 then slightly recovered to 52 for 2 only to also collapse to 60 for 8. James Bridgford led the bowling attack superbly taking 4 for 31 off his 12 overs. He was well backed up by Matt Baqueriza- Jackson taking 3 for 32 off 9 overs. Phil Beard and Sam Cleaver sharing the other two. Some superb fielding was the order of the day with 5 catches taken in the outfield. The last Dinting pair came together with 15 runs still needed. But it was Chris Wyche’s 26 not out that took the winning points for the away side, leaving Pott to ponder on how they lost such a close, though exciting finish.



July 17

Pott Shrigley 1st XI   Home   v  Newton  Home

Newton  217 for 8  –   Pott Shrigley  161 for 9

Another sunny day and quick outfield at Shrigley saw the early Newton batsmen gradually get on top. Opener Weston (83) led the way. A quick flurry of wickets fell mid innings to the home side but Williams (44) helped Newton to a respectable 217 for 8. Tatton, Bridgford and Oakes took two wickets each whilst Matt Baqueriza- Jackson took the other. Si Dunn also added to his growing list of stumpings.

Si Dunn (53) also starred with the bat as well as the gloves, hitting ten fours. He was backed up by James Hutter with 26 and Andy Matheson 17. Matt Baqueriza- Jackson 21 and Andy Tatton 18 not out as Pott closed on 161 for 9 wickets.


Pott Shrigley 2nd  XI   v  Newton  Away

Newton  214 for 7  –   Pott Shrigley 152 for 9

Shrigley 2nds six bowlers found it hard work in the sun at Newton. Pottage (67 not out) held the innings together. It was only towards the latter stages that Dan Allerton claimed 3 wickets for 41 runs. Newton closed on 214 for 7.

Despit some resolute defending wickets fell regularly, it was with the score at 90 for eight when Rich Caslaw entered the fray. He showed his attacking batting side by hitting 12 fours and 1 six in his superb 62, helped by Vinny Allen whose 6 runs took 27 balls helping Rich to show how things might have been. Pott closed on 152 for 9.



July 10

Pott Shrigley 1st XI   v   Stalybridge  Away

Stalybridge  91 all out   –  Pott Shrigley  92 for 2

Shrigley’s bowlers and fielders came to the party and blew away the Stalybridge batting. James Bridgford (3 for 31) and Andy Tatton (2 for 14 off 14 overs) had the home side at 19 for four before they recovered slightly. Matt Baqueriza- Jackson (3 for 16) and Tom Coates (2 for 29) then took over to mop up the later batting but Stalybridge could only reach 91 all out. Only 5 extras also helped keep the score down.

Simon Dunn was the early casualty with the score on 11 but Sam Cleaver came back into form. His hard hitting 69 took Pott in sight of victory, with eight fours and three sixes. Tom Fletcher (13 not out) and James Samarji (1 not out) taking us over the finishing line for some much needed points.

The Glossop openers Cannon (100) and Acomb (40) put on 72 for the first wicket but several dropped catches allowed Old Glossop to a decent score of 204 for 4. Simon Howard had the best return of 2 for 25.

Pott lost Hart early but some good strokeplay from Andy Matheson (29) and some big hits from Ian Tomenson (34) recovered  the home innings to 73 for 2, but then wickets started to fall regularly with Pott finishing 64 runs short despite a fighting 23 from Dan Allerton.


July 3

1st XI Away  v  Dove Holes

Pott Shrigley 130 for 9   Dove Holes 132 for 1.

Early wickets again fell for Shrigley as they found themselves struggling at 33 for 6. Top scorer James Willam 36 and James Samarji 10

started to pull things around and with Chris Oaks 14 the score was up to 90 for 9. A productive ninth wicket stand of 40 by Matt Baqueriza- Jackson 20 and Andy Tatton 21 saw Pott up to 130 for 9 as overs ran out.

Dove Holes made a good start getting to 88 before losing their only wicket to fall, to a good piece of fielding. With the bowlers having a blank day they easily passed Pott’s total reaching 132 for 1 in 24.2 overs.

Shrigley 2nds batting struck form at home on a hard pitch despite the rain.

After losing Andy Tomenson on 16 the rest of the batsmen made good contributions. Leading scorer was Jon Wilkie with another good knock of 56.

Jonny Dixon  36 not out,  Si Howard 34, Ian Tomenson 26, Jamie Hart 26 and Robert Street 13 n.o. all played their part in seeing Pottt pass 200 for the first

time this season finishing on 203 for 5 wickets.

Buxworth also lost an early wicket, well caught by John Willkie off John Crook’s

bowling. Enter Arran Benstead, his superb 121 not out showed how good the track was and took the game away from the home side with Andy Galloway 46 . Vinny Allen picked up the only other wicket to fall as Buxworth finally reached 206 for 2. A close nail biting finish with only two balls of the match left.








June 26

1st XI Home  v  Tintwistle

Tintwistle 289 for 8  Pott Shrigley 127 all out.

A tremendous attacking innings of 197  from Ryan Nixon, for Tintwistle, took the game away from  Shrigley early on. To their credit though, they responded well  in the later stages with some alert fielding to see a clatter of wickets late on. Wicket takers were Tom Coates 3 for 38, Ryan Anderson-Fitter 3 for 49  and James Bridgford 2 for 35.

Shrigley’s batting again struggled to find any early momentum and lost wickets regularly stuttering to heavy defeat at 127 all out. Top score was captain Ryan Anderson-Fitter with 29, the only other two batsmen to reach double figures were Simon Dunn 14 and Rick Clarke 14 not out.

1st XI Away  v  New Mills

Pott Shrigley 117 all out. New Mills 118 for 6.

Winning the toss and batting first Shrigley were soon in trouble as wickets fell at regular intervals. The best stand came late on in the innings between Rick Clarke 29 and James Bridgford 14 not out, as the innings closed on 117 all out in 36.3 overs.

Bridgford 4 for 23 and Clarke 2 for 29 also led the way in the bowling. The good Shrigley fielding started to pay off with four catches putting New Mills on the back foot for a while, but three scores of over 30 saw them over the line in 29 overs.

The Tomenson brothers gave Shrigley one of its best starts this season getting to 57 before Andy was out for 27. Brother Ian continued in the same vein until he was caught and bowled for 40 at 95 for 2. After a couple of close calls Tom Coates also scored well before being caught for 42 at 110 for 3. Things then went downhill as only Robert Street of the last eight batsmen managed to get to double figures. Five ducks saw the innings close on a disappointing 134 all out, with Jones and Wagstaffe sharing eight wickets.

Ian Tomenson picked up an early wicket on 11 but only one other wicket fell to Vinny Allen on 115 as Chapel saw their way to an easy win on 135 for 2 off 25 overs.

1st XI Home  v  Broadbottom

Broadbottom 290 for 5  Pott Shrigley  176 all out.

Broadbottom’s opener Aaron Walsh (110) dominated the game with his hard hitting, it included three sixes and fourteen fours. It gave the later batsmen freedom to attack.  Most of the bowlers suffered, James Bridgford and Phil Beard picked up 2 wickets each and Mike Burns picking up the only other wicket to fall. Keeper Si Dunn again took two catches. Pott then had a huge task of reaching 290.

The early batsmen again struggled to 20 for 4. Only a late flurry of runs at 116 for nine, from Phil Beard (57) and Sam Cleaver (33), added a little more respectability, as Shrigley finished on 176 all out.


Pott Shrigley 2nds  v  Hayfield

May 29

1st XI  Away  v  Hayfield  1.00pm.

Hayfield  238 for 9  Pott Shrigley  84 all out.

Losing a wicket to Bridgford  with only 12 on the board didn’t upset Hayfield. Evans (87) and Noakes (45) batted positively steering the home side to 238 for nine. The Shrigley bowling was led by Ryan Anderson-Fitter his 5 for 50 showing what could be done, Bridgford’s 3 for 41 was also a good performance. Si Dunn had a catch and two stumpings, Shaun Wilson also took two catches and Jamie Hart one.

A disastrous start of 0 for 2 by Shrigley then slumped to 13 for 7. Only R.A.F. showed any form being the last wicket to fall. His 42 again led the way with Phil Beard (12) the only other to reach double figures. At least the bowling points were a positive sign.



2nd XI Home  v  Woodley  1.00pm.

Pott Shrigley 57 all out   Woodley  59 for 1

Shrigley 2nds struggled from the start as the 1sts had done. Andy Tomenson stuck around taking 41 balls to reach top score of 18. Robert Street also showed the same determination as his 11 took 53 balls and in the same vein was Vinny Allen being 5 not out and Jon Wilkie 10. The innings fell away to 57 all out.

Despite Vinney Allen soon trapping one of the Woodley openers Leg Before, their second wicket pair took them to an easy victory. A disappointment for Pott after such a good performance in the last game.

2nd XI  Away  v  Hollingworth  1.00pm.

Hollingworth  167 all out  Pott Shrigley 161 for 7.

With Hollingworth batting first Amit Kapoor took the bowling honours for Pott, his 5 for 41 was outstanding. Ian Tomenson and Vinney Allen took two each with Rich Caslaw one.

Ian Tomenson (75) played a captain’s innings taking his side to such a near victory.  Andy Hart (21) and Jonny Dixon (32 n.o.) took Pott to within 7 runs of a dramatic victory, only for the overs to run out. Game of the season so far.



May 15

1st XI  Away   v   Dinting  1.00pm.

Dinting 149 for 7  Pott Shrigley 131 all out.

It was hard going at first for Pott’s opening bowlers as Dinting made their way to 61 without loss. The introduction of Matt. Baqueriza-Jackson put Pott back in the game as three wickets then fell without addition. Two to Rick Clark (2-31) and one to Matt. B-J, who went on to take 4 for 20 from his ten overs. Ryan Anderson-Fitter took the other wicket to fall with a smart piece of fielding. This left the home team on a slightly disappointing 149 for 7.

Despite losing Tom Fletcher for 8 early on, Si Dunn (35) and James William (58) took the score to 75 before wickets started to tumble very quickly, only James Samarji made double figures as Shrigley fell away to 131 all out.


2nd XI  Home  v  Broadbottom  1.00pm.

Broadbottom 170 for 8  Pott Shrigley  136 all out.

An in form Rich Caslaw took the bowling honours for Shrigley, his four wickets for 33 off 10 overs was a superb return. Vinny Allen, Dan Allerton and Fred Marshall had one each and Fred also picked up a run out. But the visitors were held together by a steadying innings of 74 by Nick Courtney who took Broadbottom to 170 for 8. Jon Wilkie also had a good day with the gloves taking two catches and a stumping.

Of the early batting Ian Tomemson, Tom Coates and Jon Wilkie all got into the thirties and were looking good before getting out. Opener Andy Tomenson (17) was the only other to make double figures as the innings fell away to 136 all out.


May 1

1st XI  Away  v  Newton  1.00pm

Pott Shrigley 159 all out  –  Newton 162 for 2

Pott were soon in trouble losing both openers on 4. Luckily Tom Fletcher 74 played a fine innings and with the next three batsmen getting into double figures, they somewhat rescued things, but then the last four Shrigley wickets fell cheaply and the innings quickly closed on 159 all out.

Newton made a steady start getting to 36 before losing their first wicket to James Bridgford. But it was 114 before Bridgford struck again. Newton though, slowly pulled things around, not losing another wicket to collect winning points at 162 for two. Top score was James Curtis with 73. James Bridgford was our best bowler with 2 for 32 off his 10 overs.


2nd XI  Home  v  Stalybridge  1.00pm

Pott Shrigley  86 all out   Stalybridge  87  for 4

Andy Tomenson (19) and Mark Dean (19) slowly edged Shrigley up to 34 before things started to go down hill. Of the next nine batsmen only Ian Tomenson, another (19) achieved double figures. Chief architect of Shrigley’s demise was Gary Sandiford, whose bowling proved too much for the Hillmen. His 6 for 18, including a hat-trick, was a man of the match performance.

Although up against the odds the home side still managed to take four wickets before ‘Bridge knocked of the required 87 runs. Crook 2 – 20, Ian Tomenson 1 – 11 and Vinny Allen 1 – 19 were the wicket takers. Again Jonny Dixon was reliable with the gloves taking two catches.

Very  nearly Si.

Taking first knock, Stalybridge made a confident start and  looked set to post a huge score on a very true Shrigley pitch. Shrigley’s bowlers though, stuck to their task and kept chipping away. This began to pay off and all five bowlers increased the pressure on the later batsmen with Rick Clarke leading the way with three wickets Phil Beard and M.B.J., taking two each. Overs ran out with ‘Bridge on a challenging total of 224 for nine.

Shrigley made a confident start with openers Si Dunn 26 and Sam Cleaver 53 seeing the 50 up. Attacking batting from Ryan Anderson-Fitter 54, Rick Clarke 38 and Jon Buckley 21, with help from the rest, saw Shrigley take 19 points with four overs to spare. Well done to all.



2nd XI  Away  v  Dove Holes  1.00pm.

Pott Shrigley 134 – 9.    Dove Holes 135 – 0.

Despite scores from Shaun Wilson 21,  Steve Barlow’s 27, Jonny Dixon 23, Ian Tomenson 19 and a battling 20 not out from Robert Street going in at number at  number five, the innings fell away, being 134 all out.

This proved no problem to a more experienced Dove Holes side. Openers Mick Johnson 62 and Mark Turner 64 cruised to a ten wicket win on a good track. Rich Caslaw had the best figures having only 19 runs taken off his seven overs.







Many thanks to all those involved in making the 2020 season such a memorable one,

during such an unusual year.



Sept 19

1st XI Away   v  Birch Vale & Thornsett C.C.

Pott Shrigley 179 for 8  –  Birch Vale & Thornsett  69 all out.

With everything depending on the last day’s results, this made for a tense start by the Pott openers. Tom Fletcher 15 and Sam Cleaver 31, patiently made their way to 59 before the first wicket fell. Ryan Anderson – Fitter 19 stayed for a while before a spirited finish by Chris Oaks who top scored with 37 not out and James Samarji 17 not out propelled the Hillmen to a respectable 179 for 8 after 40 overs.

The Shrigley opening bowlers gave their side the penetrating start they needed. James Bridgford with 4 wickets for 17 runs along with Chris Oaks 2 for 28 ripped the heart out of the Birch batting. It was left to a great return of 3 for 13 from Sam Cleaver and 1 for 9 from Rick Clarke to finish off the the home side’s tail at 69 all out, thereby ensuring that the Hillmen scooped the honours by taking the 2nd division Championship title.

A wonderful end to a traumatic season. Well done to the team and the back-room staff. We hope to see you all again next year.

1st XI Home  v  Buxworth

Pott Shrigley 266 for 6 – Buxworth 110 for 7.

Having been inserted Pott made a decent start then lost a couple of wickets, but when Si Dunn and Ryan Anderson – Fitter came together they took the game away from Buxworth. Si Dunn 53 was a great foil for Ryan as he powered his way to a season’s top score of 101 before being caught on the edge. Rick Clarke 25 and James William 44 not out also weighed in at the end to power the Hillmen to 266 for 7.

Opening bowlers James Bridgford 1 for 26 and Mike Burns 0 for 10 off 7, tied down the Buxworth batting then Rick Clarke picked up two wickets for 17 runs. The stage was then set for another man of the match display from R.A.-F who flew in to finish off the Buxworth innings with 4 wickets for 20 runs. Pott ran out easy winners by 164 runs as the opposition slowly made their way to 110 for 6.

1st XI Away v  Old Glossop

Pott Shrigley 166 for 9 (40 overs) 18 points   –  Old Glossop 107 all out.  (34 0vers)  5 points.

Again taking first knock, the  innings was dominated by Ryan Anderson – Fitter, his superb knock of 97 enabled the Hillmen to a decent score of 166 for 7. He was helped along the way by Sam Cleaver, Rick Clarke, James Samarji and Mike Burns all of whom made it into double figures.

Early overs were tight as was the fielding, but the introduction of Rick Clarke swung the match. His accurate bowling of 7 for 19 off 8.2 overs was too good for Old Glossop as he went through the middle order, also getting into the frame again was (you’ve guessed it) Ryan Anderson – Fitter with 2 for 25 and Phil Beard 1 for 10, helping to clinch the points.

Another top all round performance.

1st XI  Home v  High Lane

Pott Shrigley 126 for 6   High Lane 89 all out.

Shrigley’s early batting found it hard going. After Sam Cleaver 21 and Tom Fletcher 14, wickets began to fall. Rick Clarke then managed a valuable 30 and was followed by the best partnership of the day between Jon Buckley 27 not out and James William 26 not out, to lift the Pott score to 126-6.

Again Pott’s attack got off to a great start with James Bridgford, his 4 for 23 off 10 overs set back High Lane. The pressure was kept on with Clarke and Oaks taking two each then one apiece from Ryan Anderson – Fitter and Mike Burns saw the Hillmen to another well deserved win.

2nd XI  Away  v  Hazel Grove  

Hazel Grove 177 – 5  Pott Shrigley 73 all out.



August 15

1st XI Away  v Charlesworth & Chisworth

Pott Shrigley 166 for 9    Charlesworth & Chisworth 126 all out.

Sam Cleaver 47 and Simon Dunn 30 gave Pott a steady start but the middle order struggled to keep things moving. Then Mike Burns 38 not out along with Simon Howard 14 not out added some respectability to the score finishing on 166 for 9. John Wardle for the home side had a great return of 5 for 28.

Charlesworth & Chisworth could not handle the opening attack as Mike Burns and Matt Baqueriza-Jackson quickly picked up two wickets apiece. Rick Clarke then joined the party taking another three wickets in quick time. It was left to Ryan Anderson – Fitter and Chris Oaks to finish off  Charlesworth & Chisworth as they subsided to 126 all out. Another good all round performance.

Charlesworth & Chisworth 191 – 7  Pott Shrigley 96 all out




8th August

1st XI v Hazel Grove Away

Pott Shrigley 95 all out  Hazel Grove 79 all out.

Another terrific finish in a very close encounter. Skipper Tom Fletcher led the way with a well constructed 39. He was aided by James Bridgford 13 and James Samarji 10. A quiet tea was taken with the Hillmen needing to strike early on.

With Hazel Grove at 73 for 5 it looked all over but a saviour came in the figure of Ryan Anderson – Fitter who stormed through the Grove tail with a match winning performance of 5 for only 9 runs off 4 overs to sweep Pott to a superb victory.


2nd XI v Hayfield Home

Pott Shrigley 154 for 9  Hayfield 115 all out.

I’m not sure if Jon Buckley has had much practice this interupted season, but the outcome versus Hayfield, looks as though he had. His innings of 76 not out, with four 4s and three 6s, held the Hillmen together and along with Harry Marchington’s 14, enabled a decent score of 154 for 9 at the interval.

Ian Tomenson quickly took two early wickets to knock the confidence of the Hayfield batsmen. Then Rich Caslaw, Vinny Jones and Harry Marchington took one each but then Shaun Wilson’s 3 for 12 sealed the winning points for Shrigley.



1st August

1st XI v Chapel-en-le Frith Home

Pott Shrigley 150 all out – Chapel en-le-Frith 154-9

After losing early wickets Pott had to rely on a stand of nearly 80 from the middle order, as James Hutter 42 and Ryan Anderson-Fitter 41 pulled the innings around. But after this, only James Bridgford could reach double figures as Pott closed on 150 all out.

The Hillmen needed to strke early and James Bridgford again stepped up to the mark taking 3 for 20. Next to play a major part was Mike Burns, his 5 for 49 took Pott to the brink of victory only to see it snatched from their grasp by the Chapel tail-enders as they scored a one wicket win in a great finish.


2nd XI v Woodley Away

Woodley 188 – 9 Pott Shrigley 109 – 3

Most of  Woodley’s runs came from their middle order. At 160-6 a big score looked likly but two smart run-outs followed by two wickets each from Marchington and Allerton brought the innings to finish on 188 – 9.

After losing an early wicket and with a weakened side Mark Dean dropped anchor. His 49 not out together with Dan Allerton 16 and Robert Street 27 saw Pott come away with a draw.


 25 July

1st XI v Hollingworth Away

Pott Shrigley 206 for 8 Hollingworth 123 all out.

Pott made the ideal start with Cleaver 41 and Flanagan 47 putting 80 on for the first wicket. This paved the way for some big hitting from James William with eight 6s and four 4s in his whirlwind 74. This plus 24 from Baqueriza-Jackson took the Hillmen to 206 – 8.

Hollingworth were never allowed to settle losing wickets regularly. James Bridgford ripped through the early batting with 3-13 off 10 overs. Baqueriza-Jackson and Samarji took 2 each, the rest were shared around as Pott ran out easy winners after such a long wait.


2nd XI v Chapel-en-le-Frith Home

Chapel-en-le-Frith 110 all out. Pott Shrigley 65 all out.

Chapel’s early batsmen made a decent start adding 60 runs with Vinny Allen picking up two wickets and Harry Marchington getting the other. Then Fred Marshall 2 for 12 and and an ‘on form’ Dan Allerton 3 for 3 off only 15 balls, quickly saw Chapel close on 110 all out. This was helped by some good fielding with two run outs and three catches.

Victory was not to be though as only Ian Tomenson with 27 could reach double figures and despite some spirited defence Pott slipped to 65 all out.






Final wicket goes to M-JB-J.
