Shireshead 3rds, the only Shires team to play this weekend, claimed a comfortable victory against Morecambe 4th XI to take them to fourth in Division 4 with two games to play. Fielding first, Shirshead bowled a youthful Morecambe side out for 90 with Connor Passenger taking 4 for 30, Tom Atkinson 3 for 11 and Alan Moulsdale 2 for 8. Adam Coates continued his good form with the bat striking 63 from 45 balls including eleven 4s and a maximum. He was ably supported by Matt Sutcliffe and the pair reached the target in just the 16th over. The 3rds take a well earned break this week then travel to Ingleton on 22nd August.
