The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Robin Mulvihill: August 2015
Another 50 pointer on Saturday with both the 1st XI and the 2nd XI notching up important victories.
At Bowdon, Tattenhall's 2nd XI restricted Bowdon to 172 for 9 with the veteran duo of Gary Forster (6 for 73) and miserly Mel Dobson (2 for 29 off 15 overs) doing most of the damage. In reply, Tattenhall got off to a good start with openers Sean Reeves scoring 40 and Roy Sandford 24. Bowdon's total was overhauled with two overs to spare to keep Tattenhall 2nds on top of the table.
At the Flacca, Tattenhall's 1st XI gained another important victory, this time against Urmston. Tattenhall batted first and reached 50 for the loss of just one wicket; however runs became harder to get and Tattenhall managed to muster 144 thanks to useful lower order contributions from Owen Williamson, Dave Shewring and Alan Brock. When Urmston came in to bat they were blown away by the pace of Phil Johnson (5 for 49) and the accuracy of Dave Shewring ( 3 for 13 off 10 overs). In just 25 overs they were all out for 75 giving Tattenhall a magnificent victory and lifting them to seventh in the table, putting clear water between them and the division's strugglers, Christleton and Middlewich..
