AN impressive win over table-topping Brooklands allowed Grappenhall to get themselves back to winning ways.

The bowlers after Grappers won the toss and elected to field first, dismissing their hosts for just 81 as Sam Guest, Lewis Porter and Ian Hall all picked up three wickets each.

The reply wasn’t without drama as the visitors lost three cheap wickets, but Pete Barnes’ unbeaten 43 guided them to a seven-wicket win in just 18 overs.

The seconds’ win over their Brooklands counterparts was even more commanding and capped off what was an impressive week for the team.

Ben Bodha’s second century of the season was the highlight as Grappers posted a commanding 227 batting first, with Paul Radage lending crucial support with 85.

With the ball, Ross Arrowsmith starred with superb figures of 6-38 while Steve Rooney also claimed three wickets as Brooklands were blown away for just 86, sealing a 141-run win for Grappers.

That came just days after the seconds won through in the T20 Cup at Broad Lane as they saw off Oxton thanks in no small part to some incredible batting from Rooney.

He hit a masterful century as the hosts posted a barely believable 229-3 from their 20 overs, with Ben Clissold and Steve Dickson scoring 55 and 46 respectively.

Oxton made a great fist of their reply and were ahead of the run rate at the halfway stage, but the Grappers bowlers stuck to their guns to ensure their visitors fell short on 215-7, with Matt Titchard claiming three wickets.

Meanwhile, Warrington picked up their second victory of the season against fellow strugglers Marple.

Rohan Luthra top-scored with 72 as the visitors batted first, with Tom Higham also posting 51 in Warrington’s score of 172-8.

Jake Liddle then claimed 5-21 as Marple were dismissed for 111 to seal a 61-run win for Warrington.
