Lancs Over 50s overcome Cheshire
Lancashire Over 50s 184 for 3 beat Cheshire 180 all out.
Cheshire batted first at Timperley CC. Lancashire's Mark Adrian removed the first 3 batsmen to finish with 3 for 15 from his 9 overs. Cheshire recovered to 140 for 4 before collapsing to 180 all out. Mike Ingham's rarely used off breaks did the trick as he finished with 5 for 25.
The Lancashire response started with early losses. Fortunately Chris Dearden 32, followed by a match winning 140 run partnership between Dave Bartholomew 61 not out and Tony Bennett 57 not out, saw Lancashire home.
The next match is on the 3rd of July at Westhoughton CC versus Yorkshire.
