The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Robin Mulvihill: August 2015
Tattenhall secured victory and with it, promotion, over their nearest rivals, Timperley.
Choosing to field first on a green pitch, Ben Gibbon (4-31 — his first six overs, six maidens, two wickets) and Sam Stratton (4-39) bowled superbly and Tattenhall help on to all their chances in slip and gully to reduce their hosts to 40-4.
A brief and costly spell from Mulvihill gave the batting side some impetus, before Mel Dobson and Gary Forster put on the brakes, both with a wicket, both unlucky not to have more.
The youngsters returned at the death and the drying pitch and older ball meant it was easier to score, Timperley recovering to post 159 all out in the last over.
Tattenhall began brightly in their reply, coasting along a five and six an over including an onslaught by Graham Harper on Timperley's most troublesome bowler.
Timperley had to search for wickets, and Reeves then got in on the action, trying to keep up with Harper, a flurry of boundaries took him to fifty as well in a fine opening stand of 130.
Ryan Spann knocked-off the remaining few runs with Harper after Reeves departed for a fine 58, the job done in just over 30 overs.
Harper ended on 85 not out, his innings was worthy of a century and was the best he has played for years as he also passed 500 for the year, his runs have been a big part of the team's success.
