RESULTS on the final weekend of the season pretty much reflected the way in which the campaign has tailed off for Grappenhall Cricket Club's senior teams.

It was not all bad news, however, as two of the club's junior teams taking their chance to shine to bring some silverware back to Broad Lane.

The first team were beaten by four wickets at Urmston to finish in the bottom half of the table having harboured hopes of promotion back to the Cheshire County Cricket League Premier Division.

Grappers posted 170-8 from their 50 overs – a total the hosts reached with 10 overs to spare for the loss of six wickets.

The seconds slipped to a seven-wicket defeat at home to Lindow having been dismissed for 138 batting first.

The visitors knocked off the runs for the loss of just three wickets as the seconds finished sixth in the table as early hopes of promotion fell by the wayside.

For the thirds, the campaign went from bad to worse as they were relegated, with a cup final the only hint of a positive.

They won only one league game all season and while some good performances could not be converted into results, the campaign tailed off as it had for the other two senior teams.

However, a silver lining came in the shape of the under 13s and under 15s teams, who won their respective North Cheshire Cup finals.

The under 15s beat Toft having posted a commanding total of 150 from 20 overs – a target their opponents never looked like reaching despite putting up a good fight.

The under 13s were comprehensive winners over Davenham as they dismissed their hosts for just 48 thanks to some superb bowling.

Grappers knocked off the total for the loss of just three wickets with plenty of time to spare.
