A STUNNING unbeaten century from Ryan Brown allowed Nantwich to keep up their push for the Cheshire County League Premier Division title.

As the Dabbers batted first at Cheadle, Brown smacked 131 not out from just 98 balls, including 11 fours and seven maximums.

He led the visitors to a score of 242-6 declared from 47 overs, giving his side’s bowlers plenty of room to manoeuvre.

As it turned out, they needed significantly less runs as they blew Cheadle away for just 97.

Oliver Griffiths (5-20) and Jimmy Warrington (4-48) ripped through the home side’s batting to secure a 145-run victory.

The Dabbers, who sit third, welcome fellow high-flyers Toft to Whitehouse Lane on Saturday.
