Mixed results for Disley CC sides

Both Disley teams dug in to draw in the latest round of the Meller Braggins Cheshire Cricket League.

The 1st XI were left the more frustrated as they missed out on the chance to extend a three-match winning streak against Over Peover, but the 2nd XI picked up a good result at promotion hopefuls Barrow.

Ed Clark (3-19), Adam Burgess (3-17) and Damian O’Connor (3-30) helped dismiss Barrow, but frugal bowling from the hosts left Disley 19 runs short in the second innings.

The final Sunday friendly of 2011 saw Disley travel to Tideswell and avenge defeat earlier in the season. The Rams’ 177 all-out proved too much as they then held Tideswell to 135-9, an eighth win of the season for the development squad.
