HISTORY was made at Warrington Cricket Club on Saturday as the first-team batting record was broken.

Overseas player Jono Fletcher inspired a 150-run victory over Northwich, stealing the show by smashing 155 not out – the highest ever score by a Warrington first-team player.

Rohan Luthra helped out with a half-century as Warrington declared on 285-5 before the bowlers dismissed their visitors for just 134 in reply.

Fletcher, Rob Batey, Brad Roden, Ashley Scholes and Liam Heaphy all took two wickets each.

The seconds were thankful to Raj Soni as he hit 100 – including 27 off a single over – in their total of 186-9, but opponents Timperley still reached their victory target without losing a wicket.

Charlie Jones took five wickets for the thirds to set up victory over neighbours Stretton, who were bowled out for just 70, while the fourths found batting tough after Howard Sellars’ three wickets helped dismiss Ashley for 106 as they were skittled for 65 in reply.

It was a mixed weekend at grappers as no team registered a win but the 1s showed some real fight and spirit.

Elsewhere, Grappenhall showed great fight to earn a draw against Neston, who posted a massive 293 from their 50 overs.

Albert Pennington anchored Grappers’ innings with an unbeaten 80 to help his side finish on 214-7.

Having posted a below-par 175-7 batting first, the seconds were beaten by four wickets at Neston. Jack Critchley hit 46 with the bat before taking three wickets with the ball.

The thirds were in T20 Cup action and were beaten by Cheadle Hulme Ladybridge after posting only 92 with the bat.

Appleton continue to struggle after being bowled out for just 138 by Langley at Lyons Lane – Matthias Partridge hitting their only score of note with 40.

Langley cruised to a six-wicket victory in just 25 overs.

Rick Clarke’s classy century set the seconds up for victory against Neston’s fourths as they posted 214-6, but the visitors held on for a draw despite five wickets from Aamir Rashid.

Alex Pickering’s unbeaten 80 helped the thirds to their first win of the season at Mossley’s seconds while the fourths were bowled out for just 55 in a crushing defeat to Holmes Chapel.
