Dove Holes 207/7 v Tintwistle 189/9

Dove Holes win by 18 runs

Dove hosted Tintwistle on a hot sunny day and luckily for Dove skipper Gregory won the toss and Dove batted first. Dove fell to 14-3 but a 110 run partnership between opener Dan Jones (58) and Jack Gregory (46) helped Dove recover. Lower order hitting from Dave Cartledge (23*) and Dan Waterhouse (25*) along with 30 extras enabled Dove to post 207/7.

There was little relief in the field during the second innings as the sun continued to burn down. The visitors set about the run chase and Dove struggled for wickets. It was the Spinners who made the breakthrough as Dave Cartledge picked up 3 wickets for 45 runs and James Gemmell a tidy 12 overs 1 for 34.

Dove worked hard in the field, two excellent run outs helped keep a lid on the run chase. Openers Dan Waterhouse (2 for 51) and Cory Flint (1 for 53) then returned to the action and the hosts were restricted to 189/9 just 18 runs short.
