Lymm Edge Outcasts at Oughtrington
Outcasts 86 for 7. Lymm 87 for 3.
Lymm Oughtrington Park C.C. won by 7 wickets.
Outcasts journeyed to Oughtrington Park for their second game of the season to play Lymm Oughtrington Park Cricket Club. The evening was bright if a little overcast when Outcasts batted first in conditions that were a good deal warmer than the previous week.
Unfortunately, Outcasts' top order struggled once again on a slowish pitch against bowling of a good line and length, with the visitors not helping themselves by hesitant running between the wickets and dodgy calls that saw two batsmen run out. However, the innings gained some momentum when Jeff Stanton and Harvey Hunting came together at the crease, with both striking the ball cleanly and finding the boundary. Jeff reached 25 and had to retire under the rules of the game, but a spritely partnership towards the end of the innings between Chris Truesdale and Kyran Noone saw Outcasts to a final total of 86 for 7 off their 20 overs. Lymm's opening bowlers conceded only 17 runs off the first 8 overs, and Outcasts' middle order did very well to set a target that was anywhere near respectable.
Lymm openers made steady progress, and the prospects looked ominous for Outcasts as the hosts moved into the 40s after 10 overs with no wickets down. Indeed, both openers retired undefeated. There was then a little flurry of wickets that gave Outcasts some cause for optimism, with Jeff and Chris claiming victims at modest cost and Harvey chipping in with a tidy caught and bowled. Lymm rallied though, with J Hughes, through a combination of brutal hitting and diligent defence for an unbeaten 20 runs, seeing the home side over the line in the 18th over. Outcasts' bowlers generally acquitted themselves very commendably in trying to defend such a modest total, with Les Cooper and Chris Truesdale being particularly miserly.
A much better show, then, from Outcasts than the previous week, but another loss nonetheless. Next up is Reynolds at Ashley. Watch this space.

MOTM: Jeff Stanton, for a good all-round performance with both bat and ball. Special mention to Steve Potter for a fine display behind the stumps after so many years absence.
