a second win in a row, beating Alderley Park by 88 runs.
Over half of Alderley’s players were late to their trip to Northwich, but
after winning the toss they still elected to bowl.
Winnington’s top order batted superbly. Opening pair Chris Johns and Josh
Tench hit 35 and 34 respectively, Neil Powell at four made 31, but captain Phill
Amatiello coming in at three top scored; he struck seven fours on his way to a
knock of 53 from 54 balls.
The runs from the first four batsmen alone accounted for 153 of Winnington’s
runs, Sam Barnes hit 12 and Tom Silvester finished unbeaten on five as Park
declared with three overs to go on 197.
Opener Stu Moniz was the pick was the pick of Winnington’s bowling attack, he
took 4-14 but was denied a possible five-wicket haul when an injury forced his
spell to come to a premature end.
Sam Barnes, Bailey Metzinger and Tom Woolley each took two wickets as
Alderley were bowled out for 109, only Suresh Jayaraman (who had earlier taken
5-44) with a knock of 49* caused Winnington any real trouble.
Credit has to go to Alderley’s final partnership of Jayaraman and Madeley
though, they played solid defensive cricket and it took Winnington 15 overs to
take the decisive wicket.
Winnington earn 25 points for the win as they remain unbeaten in the TACS
Partnership Cheshire Cricket League Division C ahead of a tough trip to The
Groves next week.
