Table-topping Warrington’s march for league title continues

Losing the toss and asked to bat first they were bowled out for a modest 126, Ashley Scholes top-scoring with 42.
It was not a total that inspired much confidence but the home side struggled for runs from the outset with only one batsman reaching double figures.
Scholes took 3-16 and E Peddi 3-11 as Parkonians were rolled over for 71.
In the Cheshire County League, Grappenhall travelled to Hyde where they suffered a 149-run defeat.
