Charlesworth & Chisworth CC vs Stalybridge CC

Stalybridge’s catching improves, but still needs a bit of work. With another glorious week’s sunshine, leading up to the weekend, it came as no shock that Saturday again threatened thunderstorms and downpours, with the 1st up at good-friends Charlesworth & Chisworth.

Winning the toss and choosing to bat, Captain Mike Whitworth‘s opening pair of Adam Smith-Harwick (16) and Rob Mallett (35) got off to a good start, putting on a 32 partnership before a audibly frustrated Adam, was caught off James … Continue reading “Pott Shrigley CC 1st XI vs Stalybridge CC 1st XI”
