The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Robin Mulvihill and Mike Reece: July 2015
The sweet smell of success — Tattenhall CC demolished Davenham CC at the Flacca on Saturday in what turned out to be brilliant sunshine. We always knew a victory against Davenham, the team just above us, would buy Tattenhall some breathing space in the lower half of the Division 1 Table and so it did!
Tattenhall won the toss and fielded first against Davenham. Johnson used his pace and bounce to worry the batsmen and took two early wickets and could have had more. Callum Wilson (2-16) and Dave Shewring (3-21) bowled with control and two sharp run outs complemented some excellent catching as Davenham were bowled out within 38 overs for just 95, the last wicket off Brock by way of a diving catch from Wilson.
Josh Harding was promoted to open with Glenn Coppack and they started with purpose as they picked off loose deliveries and ran positively to demoralise the fielding side. Coppack went on to a deserved run a ball 50 and a comprehensive victory was secured in the 17th over at 98-0 with a 10 wicket victory and, importantly, a crucial 25 points for the home side. Harding was 33no and Coppack 56no.
After last week's disappointment, the ideal response from Olly Thompson and his team. Well done! The Skipper will have to draw on all his reserves as he builds up to face the mighty Oulton Park at the Flacca next week.
The Davenham match was kindly sponsored by Treasurer, Anthony Rouse, and his family.
