Highlights on this day over the past 10 years

The first team were due to make the short trip to Roe Green today.
Best Prestwich performances at their Greenleach Lane ground are Ryan Stanbury’s 140 not out in a T20 game last year, while former pro Amal Dalugoda is top of the bowling charts with an amazing return of 7 for 5 in 2009.
Our second team would have been re-igniting an old derby fixture by welcoming Unsworth 1sts to The Heys today.

Notable displays on this day in the past 10 years are:

2016 – Marty Walters (pictured) stroked 112 not out in the cup – but the 1st XI lost when rain forced a bowlout in which Heywood hit the stumps SIX times. Conversely, the 2nd XI managed to beat Greenmount in a bowlout.

2015 – Ryan Stanbury smacked 89 and Andy Bradley took 6 for 50 in the 1st XI’s 9-wicket defeat of Dukinfield.

2014 – Sam Holden made 82, Zak Wood 57 not out, and Carl Hey took 6 for 75 as the 1st XI beat Flowery Field by 83 runs.

2014 – An unbeaten fifth wicket partnership of 110 between Nathan Bailey (61 not out ) and Oli Holt (41 not out) helped the 2nd XI overhaul Flowery Field’s total of 206. Alex Spender and Nick Carter both took 4 wickets each.

2011 – Jack Scargill smashed 124 and Karl West took 5 for 60 as the 3rds overcame Rochdale 3rds by 47 runs.

2010 – David Taylor struck an unbeaten 93 and Jon O’Connor hit 67 in the 2nd XI’s eight-wicket triumph over Dukinfield 2nds after John Walters had taken 5 for 54.
