Ramsbottom 3XI vs Clitheroe 4XI

Match Report

Ramsbottom Cricket Club

On Saturday the 3XI entertained Clitheroe for the 2nd time in a week this time taking on the Clitheroe 4XI.

After winning the toss the Clitheroe skipper elected to bat on what appeared a good batting track.

An early breakthrough from the Peel Brow Express Ryan Storey followed by 2 quick wickets from Spin Wizard Chris Round had the visitors struggling at 11-3.

The visitors never got going and despite Dinsdales 17 from 38 balls , Ramsbottoms bowlers simply tore through the batsman , Owen Collinge finding extra pace and bounce to dismiss the dangerous Ahmed assisted by a worldy catch stood up by Ben Parkinson and the innings folded to 39 All Out.

Once again the plaudits go to Chris Round with 5-7 off 8 overs,assisted by Owen Collinge 2-7 off  5 , Ryan Storey 1-16 off 4 and the Sorcerers Apprentice Ed Lee with 2-4 from just 1 over.

A much earlier than expected tea was taken ( more like lunch given the time was 2:10pm )

The Ramsbottom Openers Nick Round and Ben Wilkinson took to the field and decided to take the aggressive approach and duly dispatched 7 quick boundaries between them to end the game on 43-0 off just 5 overs, Nick 23* & Ben 19* to give the young rams a ten wicket win and maximum points .
