Opening bowlers Gilbride and Critchlow set the tone with a tight opening spell but the deadlock was broken by veteran Dave Duke Cartledge who trapped the evergreen Stevens lbw for wicket 992.

Gemmell ran out the overseas amateur with a direct hit but the New Mills middle order valued their wicket as Dove toiled away in the hunt of victory.

Carter picked up wicket 993 and 994 as Dove turned the screw and It was left to Ben Baggy Bagshaw to pick up two wickets in two balls as Dove sealed an opening day win, claiming 19 points, as New Mills were 90 all out.

The Madin and Moss Player of the match was awarded to Jack Gregory.
