The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Ray Hunt: July 2015
Tattenhall played local rivals Oulton Park at their Flacca ground on Saturday.
There was the prospect of some rain interruptions but a superb wicket prepared by Brian Jarrard saw Oulton Park openers Martin East and Nick James put on a superb 187 opening partnership. Both fell short of their century but with 2 breaks for rain Oulton Park declared on 245-3 to leave 56 overs for Tattenhall.
Henry Dobson returning from playing for North of England u15 at the Bunbury Festival, played positively in partnership with Sadler (30) and Thompson rotated the strike well to build the total without risk. Dobson was bowled on just reaching a well deserved 50 and Dan Power joined the captain to continue the accumulation of 1's and 2's with good running between the wickets. Power survived a confident appeal for caught at the wicket but a loss of composure from the fielding side was seized upon as a vital partnership of 89 was only broken by another controversial LBW decision against Thompson (58).
Tattenhall seemed to falter against good spin bowling from Tomlinson (4-54) and Da Silva (2-52) as four wickets fell cheaply and the game swung again. Power (73no) remained resolute and when Johnson joined him needed 21 from 16 balls. The winning hit came with 2 balls left in the game and secured a superb 2 wickets win for Tattenhall as they finished on 246-8 to record an impressive win on home soil.
