Ashley vs Ashton on Mersey CC

Date: 29th June 2003

Venue: Ashton on Mersey

Toss won by: Ashton on Mersey

Batted First: Ashley

Match Report

This would have been a good one to win for the whites.  Ashley racked up a creditable 166 having lost the toss and been stuck in.  It was good to see Ian Horn in the runs again with a typically rumbustuous 41.   “form is temporary, but class is forever” he was heard to say as he left the pitch.

 

Ashley got into ‘em pretty quickly.  Richard Davidson and John Brownhill looked dangerous with Richard showing good control and pace that was lifting Carruthers off his feet at times.  However, a middle stand by AOM put them back into the game and with 1 over remaining all 4 results were possible – 2 runs required, 1 wicket remaining.  AOM nicked it, but everyone went home pretty happy after a cracking game of cricket.
