Buxton 1st XI powered back to the top of the table in Division 3 North by defeating Marehay 2nd XI by 139 runs, whilst leaders Glapwell Colliery lost to Hundall at the halfway point in the season.


Losing the toss, Buxton were put in to bat on a drying wicket after heavy overnight rain and quickly got the scoreboard ticking over, the strong winds hampered the batsmen’s progress, but did not stop Ram Goli from scoring 108 runs in 106 deliveries, which included four sixes and eleven fours. Matt Whitehouse supported Goli with 34 runs before being stumped in a 79 run partnership. Nick Allen with 19 runs also contributed with the bat ensuring Buxton ended their 45 overs on 253 for 9 wickets.


Ram Goli hit 108 off 106 balls.


Marehay never stood a chance against tight disciplined bowling in reply and were all out for 114 off 33 overs. Nick Allen the pick of the Buxton bowlers with 4 wickets for 26 runs off 10 overs. Young Lucas Tattersall in only his second game for the team impressed with 2 wickets and some quick bowling.


Elsewhere, the Buxton Women’s Hard Ball 1st team defeated Lindlow Ladies 2nd XI in Division 3 of the Cheshire Women’s League by 8 wickets to give them their 4th consecutive league win of the season. Buxton won the toss and chose to field. Lindlow scored 20 runs before wickets tumbled through Buxton’s strong bowling attack and were all out for 57 runs (Lydia Slack 3 wickets for 13 runs). A solid batting performance by Buxton and 19 extras from Lindlow made it a comfortable win by 8 wickets.


Club Chairman, Bob Marsden summed up the first half of the season with praise “What a brilliant first half of the season! The women’s hardball 1st team are unbeaten, the women’s second team are top and the softball 1st team are second in their league. The Saturday seniors teams have the 1st team top and the 2nds and 3rds both 2nd in their leagues. The under 15s are top and under 11s second with the whole club playing some enjoyable cricket with a positive and happy attitude.”
