Warrington’s bid for title goes to last game of season


WARRINGTON’S bid for the division two title in the Vivio Cheshire County League will not be settled until the last game of the season.
But they must be odds-on favourites after chalking up another win at Barrow.
They would now have to total less than nine points in their final game while main rivals Congleton must get the maximum 25 points from their game.
Main worry for Warrington is that their last game is against third placed Lindow, who for most of the season have been their main rivals, while Congleton play bottom club Northwich, who are already relegated.
The penultimate game at Barrow proved to be an easy task for Warrington after the home side were bowled out for 100, Liam Heaphy taking 3-24 and Jonathan Fletcher 3-6 in seven overs, five of which were maidens.
Warrington replied with 103-3, Ashley Scholes hitting 53 and Rohan Luthra 28 not out.
Warrington 2nd were not so lucky, being bowled out for 48 by Urmston, who then went on to notch-up 49-3.
In the premier division, Grappenhall – already relegated – went down narrowly at Oulton Park.
Batting first, Grappers hit 181, Graeme Rowlands 52 and Iain Wright 30.
They made the home side fight hard for runs with skipper Adam Rowlance taking 3-50, Olly Knight 2-45 and Ross Arrowsmith 2-36.
But eventually Park reached their target with two wickets to spare.
In the UKFast Cheshire League, Lymm Oughtrington Park look set to be relegated from the first division after going down by four wickets at home against Oakmere.
To survive, they would have to gain a maximum 25 points from their last game while the team above them would have to get no points at all!
Lymm hit 133, Matthew Carr 58 and Blake Munilla 30 but the visitors reached their target with four wickets to spare, despite Jake Hughes taking 3-17 and Sam Pendlebury 2-31.
In the 2nd XI game, Lymm were bowled out for 81, skipper Steve Knowles top scoring with 20 while Oakmere reached 83-4. Tony Spaven took 2-15.
Appleton face the very real possibility to being relegated after one season in division two following four wicket defeat at at Woodford.
Appleton hit 144-6, Sam Cooper 80 not out, only to see the home side reach their target for the loss of six wickets, Amir Aslam taking 2-31, Andrew jackson 2-39 and Alex Wright 2-24.
But Appleton will need a maximum 25 points from their final game, and either of the clubs above them to get less than 20 points from their games, if they are to stay up.
Appleton 2nd were bowled out for 94 against Aston at Lyons Lane and then saw the visitors get over the line with two wickets in hand.
Appleton 3rd hit 150-9 against Over Peover , John Porter 62, Nik Williams 27. But the Peover side won by one wickets, despite Paul White’s 4-31.
