Bolton News 5th October

In the Premier Division last week three big guns were in action extracting every morsel from their hapless opponents. Ramsbottom were ruthless as they beat promoted Coburg A 27-1, while Flixton CC A overcame Ladybridge A 27-2 and Ramsbottom Cricket  Club out played Heaton CC 27-3. The rest were more balanced affairs. Hilton A just edged their match against Wharton 20-17 thanks to 9 points from Andrew Michnowiec, while Flixton CC B just managed a 18-17 win against Little Lever CC A aided by nine points from Flixton’s Jordan Potts. There was 19-19 tie in the match between Nomads A and Radcliffe CC with Zac Cantor scoring nine for Radcliffe.

Division One provided less bruising encounters although Wingates took advantage of promoted Meadow Ben A to win 24-7 with nine-point hauls for both John and Alan Bradbury. Farnworth SC A took advantage of a two man Hilton C to win 23-9, while Burning Desire had a 24-10 win against Little Lever CC B with Brett Haslam and Ben Armstrong on form. Two 21-15 wins had Ramsbottom Town B beating BRASS A with David Kay collecting maximum points. Acre Bottom won against Hilton B with Brian Clements on top form. The division’s other match saw Nomads B beat Coburg B 19-13.

In Division Two full points were achieved by all players in Hilton D as they beat Top Spinners 27-5. Hilton E outdid their own F team 21-12 with John Barker and Tony Eardley putting in maximum nine-points performances. BRASS B overcame promoted Boyzone 20-17 and Heaton CC B just pipped Bolton TTC A 18-17 thanks to nine from David Hall.

Division Three saw St. Paul’s Peel beating Farnworth SC B despite resistance in the form of a nine for Farnworth’s Jimmy Tunn. Hilton G outplayed Ramsbottom Town 25-7 with nine points from both Jeff Saunders and Brian Young. Bolton TTC B  had a 23-9 win over Farnworth SC C with Peter McCormick collecting full points.

In Division Four relegated Meadow Hill A, in their first match of the season, took advantage of their own B team 25-9 with Roy Caswell and Roy Platt having nine-point wins. Juniors Hilton I beat Irlam Steel SC 22-14 with Steven Gao on maximum points. Juniors Hilton J did not match their success, however, as they lost out 20-17 to Meadow Ben D despite a nine-point match from Hilton’s Nathan Donaldson. Albany lost out in their match against Hilton H 24-16 largely thanks to nine from Hilton’s Leon Smethurst.

Footnote: These go in first thing Monday morning and it later turned out that I has misunderstood a message and Hilton C was not a two-man team. Score 18-16 to Farnworth.
