Croston climb into top spot as Eccleston stumble

Croston moved to the top of the Moore and Smalley Palace Shield Premier Division thanks to a two-wicket win at Great Eccleston.Though it was no easy feat with Croston’s tail needed to get them over the line. The hosts set Croston a target of 181-8 with Sam Marsh picking up 3-42. Marsh starred with the bat too as his 34 anchored the innings. But when he fell, number eight Jake Parsons’ electric unbeaten two six, 10 four 64 helped them to a total of 183-8.

Croston’s fellow promotion contenders Eccleston slipped up as they fell by three wickets at Lancaster. Eccleston were bowled out for 121 with number 10 Peter Cummins top scoring on 25 to help them post a respectable total. It looked like a defendable total as Cummings tore through the top order but number six Laurie Atkinson, (2), Faizan Khan (27) and Lee Sparks (26) helped them to reach 122-7.

In Division One, Mawdesley beat BAC/EE Preston by five wickets. Mawdesley bowled BAC/EE out for 90 as Darren Lemarinel’s five wickets for 16 runs helped them skittle their opponents. Opener Lucien John’s unbeaten 40 saw him joined by Lemarinel (1 no) at the crease as they finished on 91-5.

Hoghton lost by 35 runs to Freckleton, who made 195-7 batting first and despite Darren Eccles’ 48 Hoghton were bowled out for 160.

Rufford beat Grimsargh by eight wickets. Danny Hodge’s 5-18 and Richard Lyon’s 4-37 helped Rufford bowl Grimsargh out for 87. Rob Kenny’s 31 and Gregg Ashcroft’s 45 helped them chase down the total for the loss of just two wickets.

Withnell Fold lost to Tarleton by 54 runs. Tarleton made 167-9 batting first and Withnell made a solid start in their reply. But as soon as Nick Fowler, 25 and Gavin Cooper, 41, fell the wickets tumbled with Graham Lomax, 21, the only other player to hit double figures as they were bowled out for 113.

In Division Two White Coppice lost by 10 wickets to Walton-le-Dale. White Coppice were bowled out for 89, Emaran Bajiwala top scored with 31. But Walton-le-Dale openers Mohammed Nazife 22 and Paul Williams, 51, saw off that target with ease.

Whittle and Clayton-le-Woods beat Preston’s second XI by seven wickets. Preston were bowled out for 175 with Alexander Frater’s 4-44 the pick of the bowling figures. Chris McMahon, 63 and Raja Khan, 55 helped Whittle race to 179-3.

Ed Duckworth struck an unbeaten 57 and Ian Stopford was not out on 43 – the pair seeing Penwortham home in style with four overs to spare.

Croston went top of the Premier Division thanks to a two-wicket victory at Great Eccleston. Great Ecc elected to have first use of their Hall Lane track and posted 181-8. It was a target Croston chased down inside 41 overs, helped by a fine unbeaten knock down the order from Jake Parsons.

Lancaster see off Eccleston but are beaten at Netherfield

It was a mixed weekend for Lancaster Cricket Club – first they beat Eccleston CC by three wickets in the Palace Shield Premier Division at Lune Road, but on Sunday they lost by 90 runs away at Netherfield in the Twenty20 Cup.

On Saturday, Eccleston captain, Stewart White won the toss and decided to bat first. Sam Bromley (4), Jamie Maitland (5) and Michael Robert Atkinson (0) all fell early though as Charlie Swarbrick (3-25) and Iain Perrieman (2-25) got to work on the top order. Matthew Ashcroft (21) and Tom Langshaw (17) helped to rebuild the innings until Ben Simm (3-29) struck, taking both wickets, the former was caught by Swarbrick while the latter was caught by Sandy Richards. Jordan Bentham (5) was run out, Adam Norris (4) was caught by Swarbrick off Simm, and Iain Bradley (5) was caught by Steven Fisher off Swarbrick a the visitors struggled to accelerate the run rate.

Captain White (6) fell to Perrieman LBW and Kieran Moffat (1-31) took his sole wicket of the day when he removed Peter Cummings (25), who was Eccleston’s leading run scorer on the day, as the visitors were all out for 121. However,

Lancaster didn’t get off to the best of starts in their reply, with Richards (6), Fisher (0) and Swarbrick (0) all falling to Peter Cummings (5-28). Moffat could only manage four runs before being caught and bowled by Cummings, and the Eccleston bowler struck again to remove Joseph Hills (2) LBW before Lancaster’s order finally settled down. Laurie Atkinson (28) and Faizan Khan (27) combined well to turn the tide back Lancaster’s way, Atkinson eventually falling to White (1-23) while Khan was given out LBW to Iain Bradley (1-34). Lee Sparks (26no) and Simm (5no) got the home team over the line, with Lancaster finishing on 122-7.

However, on Sunday the Lune Road club were beaten in the Twenty2o competition away at Netherfield. Home captain Scott Clement won the toss and elected to bat first, and the Netherfield openers impressed. Theo Gallagher (79) was eventually caught and bowled by Nathan Baxter (1-46) while Finlay Richardson managed a knock of 59 before being bowled by Imran Ashraf (3-30). Callum Kay (10) and Joe Atkinson (10) came in and managed double figures but Kay was caught and bowled by Geoff Orr (1-25) while Atkinson was caught by Khan off the bowling of Ashraf. Fraser Kay was run out and Gary Baker could only manage one run before being bowled by Ashraf, with Netherfield finishing on 171-6.

That total proved too much for Lancaster as they only managed to reach 81-9 in 19.2 overs. Faizan Khan only scored a single run before being bowled by Joel Bibby (1-13), although Ashraf (13), captain Lewis McGinley (21) and Lee Marshall (20) did make double figures in their innings. However, Barry Dobson, Elliot Marshall and Orr all failed to score as Bertie Medhurst (4-12), Samuel Medhurst (1-20) and Joe Atkinson (1-5) turned the screw. Isaac Atherton (3) and Jacob Orr (9no) were the only other batsmen to score any runs as Lancaster fell to a 90 run defeat.

Fylde coast cricket review: Blackpool go top, big wins for Lytham and St Annes, Lancashire Cup and Palace Shield

Blackpool moved to the top of the Northern Premier League for the first time this season with a three-wicket derby win over Fleetwood, while St Annes climbed to second after inflicting Garstang’s first defeat in the competition.

The four unbeaten early pace-setters in the first division all faced each other and both teams batting second successfully chased down moderate totals. Fleetwood chose to bat at Stanley Park, where captain Dean Bell set an example at the top of the order with 46. But although several of his team-mates got in, none could manage a major total and it needed a sixth-wicket partnership between Alex Ryder (32) and Jeremy Davies to lift Fleettwood’s 50-over total to 174-6.

Matthew Houston got the Blackpool reply off a solid start with 44 but lost his first two partners for ducks as Sam Bell gave the visitors hope, removing al the top three on his way to 3-36 from 11 overs. But coming together at 127-7, Jake Muncaster and Matt Grinldley shared an unbroken stand of 48 in just 18 minutes for the eighth wicket to wrap up the victory at 175-7 after 40 overs. Muncaster led the way with 63 not out, his best score his 2015.

St Annes are the only other side still unbeaten in the first division after their six-wicket success at Garstang. The hosts were put in at the Riverside and totalled 186-7. Mainstays of their innings were Michael Walling at the top of the order with 40 and wicketkeeper Matthew Crowther with an unbeaten 39 at number six. St Annes professional Amar Ullah with 3-41 from 14 overs was the pick of seven St Annes bowlers, five of whom shared the wickets. St Annes wrapped up victory in 41 overs as a fourth-wicket stand between Ullah (54 not out) and Mohamed Nadeem (52) propelled them to a winning 190-4. It was a second half-century of the season for both batsmen and left St Annes four points behind Blackpool. T

he defeats saw Garstang drop from first to fourth and Fleetwood from third to sixth on the day Fulwood and Broughton, who came up with Garstang from the Palace Shield, recorded their first Northern League win over winless Penrith. Champions Netherfield climbed ominously to third with an eight-wicket success at Barrow.

Blackpool made light work of polishing off a nine-wicket victory over Norley Hall in the first round of the Lancashire Knockout Cup yesterday. In the last match at Stanley Park before Friday’s Royal London One-Day Cup clash between Lancashire and Warwickshire, the Wigan club chose to bat and were dismissed for 64 in 20 overs. Joshua Boyne took 4-13 from his three overs and Jake Muncaster 3-18 from four. Matthew Houston cruised to 30 not out as Blackpool won in 13.1 overs at 67-1 and will visit the Crosby club Northern in the second round in three weeks.

Fleetwood bowed out, however, losing by six wickets at Northern League rivals Leyland, where more than 400 runs were scored. Adam Shorrocks fired an unbeaten 81 and opener Jeremy Davies contributed 45 in Fleetwood’s 206-4, but it was nowhere near enough as the hosts won with 11.2 overs to spare. The second-wicket stand between opener Ian Farrington (88) and Umar Waheed (62 not out) was the key to Leyland’s winning total of 210-4 and they will visit Burnley CC in round two.

Lytham CC’s first away victory of the year in the Liverpool Competition was achieved in convincing style after they skittled out hosts Colwyn Bay for 96. Both sides had won only one of their opening four in the ECB premier league and the seven-wicket victory lifted Lytham two places to seventh.Lytham captain Ben Saunders’ soon vindicated his decision to insert the hosts in North Wales as he took 5-39 bowling unchanged for 18.4 overs. George Johansen top-scored for Colwyn Bay with 29 batting at four but only one of his team-mates managed more than 11 and the innings fell away spectacularly from 83-4 to 96 all out 37.4 overs. Josh Holden bowled especially tightly to take 3-8 from eight overs, while Antony Mulligan’s four catches included all of the top three. Lytham required just 22.2 overs to seal victory at 98-3 as Taylor Cornall carried his bat for 55 off 66 balls, including six fours and a six.

Lytham exited the Lancashire Knockout Cup at the first hurdle yesterday, defeated by Palace Shield club Eccleston by 12 runs at Church Road. The Chorley club chose to bat and the tie looked to be going Lytham’s way as the visitors’ innings deteriorated from 48-0 to 56-5, Ben Saunders dismantling the top order on his way to 4-16 from nine overs. However, a sixth-wicket stand of 62 between wicketkeeper Adam Norris (42) and Jordan Bentham (35) initiated a recovery which took Eccleston to 185-8 from their 45 overs. Lytham’s clase began in determined fashion as Matthew Taaffe made 54 and shared in an opening 63 with Matthew Cartmell,. However, after the hosts had reached 103-3 the wickets fell regularly and they were all out for 173 with an over remaining. Tom Langshaw took 4-32 from his nine overs.

Croston are the new leaders of the Moore and Smalley Palace Shield and replace Longridge, who were the premier division’s last unbeaten side until their defeat at Kendal. The Fylde coast’s three premier division clubs occupy the places immediately above the bottom two, all having won two out of five, South Shore’s victory over bottom club Torrisholme pulling them level with Great Eccleston. Standish beat Kirkham and Wesham and boast the last 100 per cent record in division 1A after Fylde had to settle for a tie at Norcross. Freckleton’s win at Hoghton lifts them to second, six points behind the leaders and two above Fylde, with Kirkham and Wesham a further five points back in fourth.

Croston captain Lee Childs admits he cannot have too many complaints after his team’s fine start to the new season.

The men from Westhead Road have won three out of their opening four league games to go second in the Moore and Smalley Palace Shield Premier Division table.

After taking on the two teams relegated from the Northern League in their opening two fixtures – beating Kendal but losing to Lancaster – Croston have really hit top form in their past two games. They enjoyed a comprehensive 50-run win over New Longton and then a terrific all-round performance last Saturday saw them sweep aside Torrisholme. 

Croston posted a score of well over 200 when they batted and then Childs (4-45) and young Aussie ace Callum McIIveen (4-38) got to work with the ball. “I am a little disappointed it’s not four out of four,” said Childs. “Unfortunately we could not make enough runs at Lancaster, but the boys have gelled really well together. “It was a bit strange playing the two Northern League teams in our first two games. “They were unknown to us and we did not know quite what to expect. “We got out of jail against Kendal. However to take three wins out of four, I would have taken that at the start of the season. “Saturday was a great all-round performance. Callum McIlveen was outstanding and is a real find for us. “I think he could be the turning point for us if we are to finish in the top half of the table or higher.”

Croston travel to Great Eccleston this weekend and Childs is hoping for better luck at Hall Lane than they have had in the past. “We always look forward to going to Great Eccleston, but don’t always look forward to the trip back,” said Childs, who will miss this weekend’s game. “They are a bit of bogey side for us. Every time we go there, we can’t seem to get a win. “So it’s going to be a tough game. They have had a decent start and the top half of the table is shaping up nicely.”

NORTHERN LEAGUE DIVISION ONE: Barrow v Netherfield, Blackpool v Fleetwood, Chorley v Leyland, Fulwood and Broughton v Penrith, Garstang v St Annes, Preston v Morecambe.

MOORE AND SMALLEY PALACE SHIELD PREMIER DIVISION: Great Eccleston v Croston, Lancaster v Eccleston, Longridge v Kendal, Penwortham v Vernon Carus, Thornton Cleveleys v New Longton, Torrisholme v South Shore.
