Summary of Day Two.

GROUP 1: Greater Manchester West (GMW) v Lancashire South East (LSE): Fylde CC

GM West skipper Brad Yates won the toss on another gloriously sunny day at Fylde CC and had no hesitation in batting first. Chris Brownlow came into the side to replace Dominic Morris and he and opening partner Matthew Morris crashed 41 without loss during the mandatory first 10 over Powerplay. Morris (16) was first to go with the score on 70 as he was bowled by Sharrock. Brownlow continued to be severe on the Lancs SE bowling as he and Yates added another 78 before he perished 5 short of a deserved 100. Yates was joined by Dan Hewitt who continued on from yesterday and they progressed to 173 before Yates was LBW for 48 to Roberts. As Lancs SE wilted in the heat GM West added 70 in the last 10 overs to finish on 279-5 with Hewitt remaining unbeaten on 52. S. Hunsley bowled well for figures off 7-0-33-2 .

Lancs SE reply was dealt any early blow as Lewis Clarke struck with his first ball in festival cricket to remove Taylor (1) to leave them 3-1 in the second over. Roberts and Wright then went on to add 90 for the second wicket but at a sedate pace as it was the 27th over before GM West broke the partnership with the run out of Roberts (45). Wright (34) was next to fall with the score on 101 as he was stumped off Gregory. With 150 needed off the last 15 overs it was never going to be easy for the Lancs SE batsmen to get close and 5 further wickets fell as GM West won by 76 runs, although Hussey did score 44.

Hashim Akhtar 9-1-35-2, Lewis Clarke 10-3-31-2, Ben Gregory 10-0-40-2 and with the bat.

 

Greater Manchester East (GME) v Lancashire North West (LNW): Fleetwood CC

After losing the toss and being asked to bat Lancashire North West finished on 212-7 from their 50 over’s. Tom Jefferson top scoring with 41, Jake Smith 37, Josh Boyne 28 and Eddie Fiddler 27. In reply Greater Manchester got off to a flier scoring 43 from the first seven overs. The introduction of spin not only slowed down the scoring but reduced Greater Manchester East from 64-0 to 75-4.  Jake Smith 10-4-11-3 and Josh Boyne 10-3-17-1. Lancs North West continued taking wickets at regular intervals bowling Manchester East out for 163 in 45 overs, a victory by 49 runs.

GROUP 2:

Greater Manchester South (GMS) v Lancashire South West (LSW): Blackpool CC

Greater Manchester South won the toss and batted at sunny Blackpool. Turner and Downes put on 40 for the first wicket before 3 wkts fell in a two over spell leaving them 45 for 3.  Calum Turner (92) and Will Davidson (70) put together a match winning partnership of 135.  Kershaw and Shafiq put on a hard run 30 partnership, as all the later batsmen reached double figures. The final total being 260. Neil Patel (4 for 47) and Daniel Horton (3 for 47) were the pick of the bowling for Lancashire SW.

In the second innings Lancs SW lost two early wickets but scored at a brisk rate, until the bowlers pulled the rate back. Brookwell was run out by Din for a solid 47. Lancashire SW continued to fall behind the rate after excellent bowling from Shafiq and Turner. Downes picked up a couple of wickets, then Wright and Smith put together a partnership of 40 with Wright finishing on an excellent 31. Lancashire SW innnings was closed by a Laker double as they finished on 177.

Greater Manchester South won by 83 runs.

 

Merseyside (MSIDE) v Lancashire North East (LNE): Lytham CC

Lancashire NE won the toss and inserted Merseyside on a wicket that turned out to be a challenging strip.

The Merseyside batters took on the challenge whilst at times the Lancashire NE bowlers failed to capitalise on the green surface.  The game ebbed and flowed with runs being scored and wickets falling, many to catches behind the bat by slips and wicket keeper.  Some early Merseyside batters, exemplified by Nick Knight, who scored a valuable 39, worked hard.  After the first drinks break, Merseyside found themselves 5 wickets down with less than 100 runs on the board. However, the fight back was lead by the middle and lower order batters, including a feisty knock of 31 by Tabern ably supported and then further developed by the resurgent Bolton who ended on 50 not out as Merseyside went to lunch on 223-9 after their allotted 50 overs.  Two Lancs NE bowlers, Cattermole and Tansin finished with 2 wickets for 14 runs off 5 and 4 overs respectively.

The wicket did not change as Lancashire NE wickets fell regularly. The Merseyside spin triumvirate of Dotters, Johnson and Snaylam, ably supported by pacemen Wyman, Hughes and Bolton and orchestrated by captain Noctor reduced Lancs NE to 117 all out, despite Grimshaw’s battling 37. John Dotters started, then completed, the rout taking 3-16 off 7.5 overs being supported by Snaylam and Bolton whose performances mirrored each other’s, both taking 2 for 12 off 5 overs.  Bolton’s could have been much better had he held a return catch at 105 whilst Snaylam took 2 wickets with his first 2 balls and threatened a quick hat-trick.
