WARRINGTON defeated Cheadle by seven wickets.
In a match reduced to 32 overs per innings due to rain, Warrington inserted Cheadle.
They had no appetite for the Warrington seam bowling attack, with Kyle Adams leading from the front with 5 for 46 well supported by Ashley Scholes, 2 for 13, and Matt Adams, 2 for 26, to restrict the home side to 87 for 9.
Warrington set about their task with a well contolled opening partnership of 35 between Malcolm Agar (29) and Richard Heaney (21) followed by an equally good partnership of 46 between Malcolm Agar and James Hughes (33no) to see Warrington home on 88 for 3 with 25 points in the bag.
Warrington’s second string lost by three wickets at home to Irby - scant reward for the efforts it took to get the match on.
Having lost the toss, they were invited to bat on a bowler freindly wicket and were soon in trouble with three of the top order failing to trouble the scorer until Chalie McElroy (60) was joined by Bram Stoker (21) to forge the only partnership of the innings with 65. The home side were bundled out for 120.
Irby took a steady apporch with all their batsmen reaching double figures.
It was unfortuate that Nick Houghton, with a mean bowling stint of 18 overs for 18 runs and 4 wickets and Sam Pennington 1 for 6 off 5 overs, were to be on the losing side as Irby crept home to a three-wicket victory.
Warrington’s thirds lost by 52 runs against Timperley.
Timperley posted a defenable score of 148 for 9 on a wet wicket, with Ben McCarthy 2 for 23, Tom Corroboy 2 for 37 and Wes Charlton 2 for 48 being the pick of the Warrington bowlers as the home side finnished at 148 for 9.
Warrington had a horrible start with Jordon Mitchell (6, after the previous Sunday’s 159no agaist Oxton) being the only one of the top four to score.
It was left to Arron Chaderton (53no) and the only other two batsmen to reach double figures.
Wes Charlton (10) and James Sharrock (10) made some inroads into the home attack as Warrington were bowled out for 96, giving the home side a 52-run victory.
