First Team

DCCL Division One

Tintwistle 59ao v Dove Holes 60/3

Dove Holes win by 7 wickets

Dove travelled to Tint on a blustery day. Gregos calling hasn’t improved so Tintwistle had the choice and chose to bat.

Gilly and Crich opened up with Gilly getting the early wicket of Robinson - a worrying sign as the ball didn’t bounce and clattered into the stumps.

Davies was next to go with the score on 16 with Eddie taking a smart grab in the gully off Gilly. Gilly then picked up Weston LBW before Crich got in on the act getting the oversea and Handforth to leave tint 38-5.

Morris was next to go bowled by Gilly before Water was introduced- getting Mayne caught by Grego. The tail soon went with Water getting another 2 and a run out to leave Tint all out for 59.

The reply started disastrously with Brown bowling DJ with one that didn’t get up. Any early nerves were soon put to bed though as Grego hit Weston’s first ball 3 or 4 gardens deep.

Grego and Eddie put on 50 before Grego fell for 25. Forder came and went leaving Gilly and Eddie to finish the job off to knock it off for 3- Eddie 27no.

MOTM sponsored by EP Walling was hard to pick with all of the bowling attack being superb - Gilly just edging it with 4/32.
