Glazebury end wait for silverware

GLAZEBURY’S long wait for silverware came to an end with a crushing win over Westminster Park in the Cheshire Cricket Alliance Cup final on Sunday.

The Warrington side made a great start to the game, reducing Park to 12 for 4 as Sam Stanier, 2 for 27, struck twice early on before Matt Shailer, 1 for 10, added another and Dave Acton grabbed a run-out.

The batting side responded with a stand of 62 for the next wicket but then a five-wicket haul demolition job by Tom Wilkinson, 5 for 25, removed the remaining Park danger men and the innings was wrapped up for 121 in just 27 of the available 40 overs.

A knock of 57 from opener Dean Lord, which included 10 boundaries, settled any nerves and edged Glazebury closer to the trophy.

Lord was eventually caught and his dad, Chris Lord, 27 not out, came in to replace him and carry the team home, claiming their first major trophy since joining the league in 2002.
