Shireshead 247 all out  Heysham 194-7

Days after losing the 20/20 match the firsts were intent on revenge against a strong Heysham side and after winning the toss elected to bat on a fast track and outfield.

Tom Jacques, 8, Paul Yates, 2, and Simon Gould, 4, all fell cheaply as Heysham sensed a second win against Shireshead.

Joe Cunliffe saw off any danger with a considered 44 supported by Bleasdale, 19. Steve Yates then smashed an impressive 47, with five sixes, and Dave Jack, 42 not out, and Phil Oliver, 40, then took the game to Heysham. Irfan Qayuum hit an excellent 19 to see the home side reach an excellent 247.

Heysham initially had this target in their sites as opener Plackett with a majestic 86 not out, supported by Antcliffe and McClements put the visitors on course for the win.

Sharp bowling from Jack, Qayuum and Joe Oliver kept the visitors at bay and as the overs ran out Heysham were content to bat out the game.
