The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Robin Mulvihill: September 2015
Tattenhall ended their first division campaign in style with a 75 run victory over Christleton at the Flacca.
Despite heavy rain in the previous 24 hours, a superb ground allowed play to start on time (thanks again Brian Jarrard). Christleton won the toss and decided to bowl first. Tattenhall made a steady start before losing Dobson in the 10th over. Dan Power, playing his last innings after 3 years at the club and desperate for an elusive century set about building a big innings and with Captain Thompson joining him in the 15th over set a firm innings foundation as Tattenhall reached 80-2 at halfway. Dan reached 50 off 83 balls and upped his rate as he Thompson (26) and Williamson (30) provided good support. With 3 overs left Power brought up his richly deserved century from 117 deliveries before eventually falling for 108 as the innings closed on 212-8 at 50 overs.
Christleton made a strong start with 50-0 in 10 overs before Power (2-23) again broke the partnership. Shewring ended a fine season with 3-39 stall the momentum and Callum Wilson mopped up the tail with 3-6 to complete a 75 run victory inside 36 overs. Phil Johnson also took a wicket courtesy of a stunning two handed slip catch from Power again to complete a superb all round performance and a farewell to be proud of. Christleton are unlucky to be relegated having won 6 games when 3 was enough for safety last year but Tattenhall can be proud of 8 wins in this division at first time of asking, well done to all.
The Seconds playing at Congleton were rained off but the 7 points were more than sufficient for Sandy's team to be crowned 2015 champions
