AFTER the previous week’s debacle when half the Over Forties section programme fell by the wayside, better weather shone on Wednesday, June 6 with every fixture fulfilled and Ashley, Poynton Legends and Upton recorded their first victories of the season.
Ashley won by seven wickets at Mobberley when Steve Busby 33 and Phil Noble 31 helped their side reach 127-3 in reply to Mobbers’ 124-4, Bill Brown 31, James Wheeldon 30.
Ashley had also played the previous evening, losing by 47 runs at home to leaders Davenham in a re-arranged game. Davenham ran up 169-5, Simon Freedman 33, Paul Parker 31, then restricted Ashley to 122-4, John Jessop and Steve Busby both retiring on 30.
