The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Robin Mulvihill: July 2015
Last weekend was a superb one for Tattenhall — just one pesky 3rd team wicket denied the club a 75 point weekend.
This weekend the 1st XI are at Sale. They head to the home of the league leaders with back-to-back victories and a lot of confidence from a superb win over third-placed Oulton Park. The run chase saw a return to form of some key players, Thompson, Dobson and Power all registering 50s and Sadler chipping in with a tidy cameo. Johnson is unavailable — he is replaced by the wily guile of Brock.
The seconds continue to fly high in Division 1 and are 4 points behind Timperley and they have also established a crucial 25 point gap to third-placed Nantwich, with only the top two teams going up.
Both Strattons are unavailable, Forster and Sharp come in to balance the side — Mulvihill returns from injury and Reeves drops down to the third team to rediscover some of his good early season form and bringing it back to Saturday cricket.
The thirds entertain a strong New Brighton outfit at the Flacca on Sunday — 2pm start.
Like Sandy's men, Alex's youngsters are in a battle to go up, but just one side can do so in their division and the race is on and getting pretty tight, with just four fixtures remaining.
So, come on down to the Flacca and continue to support some terrific cricket.
