Lancs Over 50s Through to Quarter Finals
Lancs Over 50s go through to the Quarter Finals after defeating Suffolk at Ipswich CC on Sunday 27 July.
The home team batted first on an superb wicket, but tight bowling and keen fielding by Lancashire restricted the scoring.
Opening bowlers S Hipgrave 2 for 23, J Punchard 0 for 23 and P Deakin with 3 for 59, kept the home team down to 225 for 7.
Lancs got off to a quick start with 60 off the first 10 overs. The introduction of spin by Suffolk slowed things a littie. P Sutcliffe top scored with 82 and in partnership with C Dearden 52 which took Lancs within sight of victory. Eventually J Partington, 25 not out including an enormous 6, saw Lancs home.
Lancs Over 50s now play Surrey at home on Sunday 10 August at Formby CC - 12:00 start.
