by | Friday September 15th 2023 | Cricket

Superb maiden Prestwich senior tons from James Mercer and Sam Regan the undoubted highlight of the weekend as Prestwich 4XI enjoyed a 32 run win over Swinton Moorside to stay in the hunt near the top of their division.

Prestwich 4XI 223-1 (Mercer 101*, Regan 101*); Swinton Moorside 3XI 191ao (Arif 5-49, Hatchett 3-21)

• Elsewhere this weekend Prestwich 1XI’s Premier Division fate is no longer in their own hands following an agonising 1 wicket loss to now relegated Heyside.

Prestwich 1XI 235-7 (Khurana [sub-pro] 117, Alex Bradley 51); Heyside 236-9 (Maddock 6-68)

In order to retain our Premier Division status, we now need to beat Flowery Field next Saturday and hope relegated Denton St Lawrence can win at home to Egerton.

Prestwich 2XI 144ao (Fitzmaurice 53); United Stars 1XI 148-8 (Staley 4-16)

Prestwich 3XI lost by 23 runs at Uppermill but remain in 2nd place in the Sunday Premier Division.
