Grappers miss out on top spot

First published in Sport

GRAPPENHALL failed to take their chance of moving into top spot when they were beaten at Neston in Cheshire County Premier League on Saturday due to a poor performance from the batting order.

Neston opted to bat first in a game reduced to 37 overs due to morning rain, and Josh McClelland, 1 for 20, made an immediate impact bowling out Neston opening batsman for none.

Sam Guest bowled 18 overs taking 4 for 85, while the best figures came from Albert Pennington as he took 4 for 21 in eight overs as Neston reached 158 for 9.

Pennington was also the top run-scorer with 24 as Grappenhall struggled to reach the achievable target of 158.

Openers Adam Roylance, 22, and Liam Parkinson, 19, made a solid start until a disastrous collapse left it to Pennington to restore some pride.

Grappenhall were bowled out for 120 in the 34th over.
