NANTWICH sit bottom of the Cheshire County Cricket ECB Premier League after losing by four wickets at home to Alderley Edge on Saturday.

Edge recorded their second successive win after bowling their hosts out for 127.

Rob Cook-Sievewright, 38, top scored for Nantwich, while under 19s player Sam Hunt contributed with an unbeaten 20 and Liam Livingstone was bowled for 22.

Edge topped that total in the 38th over, despite Nantwich’s Oliver Griffiths taking two wickets for 15 runs.

Haslington set a county record on Saturday when they dismissed Wirral for three runs in Division Three, an all-time record low in the Cheshire pyramid.

Two leg byes and the final Wirral batsman making one run stopped a complete whitewash after the visitors had been reduced to 0 for 8.

Junior Ben Istead took 6 for 1 from his five overs, while Tom Gledhill claimed the other four wickets after Haslington had set a target of 108.

Ben Twemlow made 36 for the hosts before tea, complemented by Gledhill, 26, and Ben Leigh, 26.

Wistaston were unable to prevent an eight-wicket defeat to Stalybridge St Pauls in the Cheshire Cricket Alliance Division One.

Opting to bat first at the Brittles, they struggled to 63 with only Jack Stokes, 15, and Josh Allwood, 11, reaching double figures.

The visitors eased past the total in 12.3 overs for the loss of two wickets, James Hogben, 1 for 7, and Mike Kingdom, 1 for 6, doing the damage.

Crewe Vagrants enjoyed their first win of the North Staffs and South Cheshire League Championship Division Three A campaign.

Vagrants put on 117 thanks to George Harding, 24, Mark Hurst, 22, and Laiq Ur-Rehman, 23.

They then bowled Bignall End out for 98, Shahid Mahboob leading the way with 5 for 37.

In the Cheshire Women’s League the points headed for Astley Bridge, but only after Wistaston’s varied bowling attack – Danielle Collins 2 for 3, Katie Schofield 2 for 12 – showed they could be a handful this season.
