Saturday 16 June – Greenmount CC 1st XI vs Roe Green CC 1st XI

Roe Green CC 1st XI – 96/9. J Birch 26.

Greenmount CC 1st XI – 89/3. 

Greemount 1st XI Win by 7 wickets (D/L Method)

Following on from their impressive away wins at Woodbank and Norden, the 1st XI were once again playing away, this time at Greenmount. Once again, Roe Green were on the losing end of the toss and were asked to bat first.

An opening partnership of 52 from Dan Cooper and Jamie Birch provided a positive start to the innings, with Dan Cooper (14) falling after 15 overs. From here, there were few positives in the rest of the Roe Green innings. Birch continued to apply his “war of attrition” approach, but support from the remaining batsmen failed to arrive, with only Guy Emmett (11*) reaching double-figures. When Birch (26) eventually departed at 92-8, the Roe Green innings was soon to end. The unavoidable late arrival of the number eleven batsman meant that at 96/9, the Roe Green innings was over. Extras (30) was the highest scorer for Roe Green.

After a rain delay, the Greenmount batsmen took to the crease to chase the adjusted total of 88. The day would continue to be dominated by the hosts, who surpassed the Roe Green total in just 17.4 overs for the loss of 3 wickets. Emmett, L Williams and Hough shared the 3 wickets. The result leaves Roe Green 5th in the premier league table.

Saturday 16 June – Roe Green CC 2nd XI vs Woodbank 2nd XI

Woodbank CC 2nd XI – 154/9. E Millward 3-34, B Bowers 3-45.

Roe Green CC 2nd XI – 157/7. J Vast 42, J Hopkins 37, T Hughes 24*.

Roe Green 2nd XI win by 3 Wickets

Following on from a solid win against Edgworth, the second team hoped to continue their good form and stay top of the Division 3 West division. On Saturday, we welcomed Woodbank to the green, and they were asked to bat first by Roe Green captain, Chris Jones.

Woodbank wickets fell at regular intervals throughout the innings, with Elliot Millward and Ben Bowers working hard to dismiss the top order and finish with 3 wickets each. Despite a late rally by K Grundy and M Dentith, the visitiors were reduced to 154, with the ever-dependable Tom Hughes picking up the final two wickets.

After a short rain delay, the Roe Green batsmen took to the field hoping to successfully chase down another total. With the score at 0-1 and the end of the first over, the innings got off to the worst possible start. However, the early wicket brought James Vast to the crease, who hit his way to 42 before being trapped LBW at 62-3. John Hopkins (37) was then brought to the crease, who along with Tom Hughes, guided Roe Green to 114-4. A couple of quick wickets brought some nerves to the Roe Green camp, but at 140-7, Alex Jones joined Hughes out in the middle. The two guided Roe Green to a win with 3.3 overs to spare. The second team remain top of the league table, and travel to Worsley hoping to defeat their first eleven in the next fixture.

For the second game in a row, the Roe Green batsmen failed to deliver the goods. At 49-6, the game was looking as though it could only go one way. Ash Williams provided some resistance, battling his way to 38 before falling at 111-9. Some further grafting at the bottom of the order led the team to 141, however, Roe Green fell short by 116 runs, meaning that Greenmount progress on to the next round of the cup
