The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Webteam: July 2015
Things didn't go too well for the 'Lakesiders', better known as Bala Town FC, when they travelled to Luxembourg on Thursday, 2 July. In temperatures of over 36 degrees, they conceded three goals before pulling one back which means that our local celebrity Rob Pearson and his side have a 1-3 deficit to overcome when the return fixture takes place at Rhyl FC's ground on 9 July. Nevertheless, the valuable away goal does give them some comfort. Fingers crossed for a 2-0 victory at their home ground next week which would take them through to the next round.
Back in Tattenhall, a heavy downpour put an end to Cheshire's bid for victory. When rain intervened in mid afternoon, Cheshire required just 100 runs in 20 overs with all their wickets still intact. Opener, Tattenhall's Ollie Thompson, was beginning to find the gaps: earlier in the day Glenn Coppack had taken two good catches behind the stumps and another young cricketer, Josh Harding, had brought credit to Tattenhall CC by coming on as a substitute fielder and acquitting himself well.
