Oxton travelled to Cheadle CC in their first away match of the season. On arrival, it was visible from the car park that the previous days rain had left the ground in a poor state with the bowlers run ups a swamp filled with sand.

The late start resulted in a 39 over each game with the actual wicket not playing too badly although it did misbehave at times for the spinners for both sides.

Cheadle CC put Oxton into bat. Unlike last week, Oxton made a much more encouraging and solid start with youngsters Jack Breheny and Tom Green putting on 43 for the first wicket.

After some composed and patient shots, a slight hesitation from both batsman resulted in Jack (23) being run out. This brought Joe Hillier to the crease and soon after Green was also dismissed bringing captain (Gauntlett) into the middle.

The pair seen off some tight overs from the Cheadle spinners but soon the shots started to flow. Both batsman were hitting consistent boundaries before Joe by attempting to play across the line was bowled for 20 and Kumar struggled to hit the ball and swatting flies trying to move the score on was caught in the deep for 3.

Jimmy Fraser (1) soon followed in similar fashion before the skipper (32) was well caught out on the boundary by his opposing captain.

From 100-4, Oxton only added a further 14 runs from the tail with Roden (0) bamboozled by the spinners googly (who chose not to listen to Joe's advice) and 'Rhino' giving catching practice lobbing an easy chance up to the Cheadle fielder. Steve Williams was then run out (6) leaving Nick Irving(4) and Ed Tilliard (0) both not out at tea.

Oxton then faced a tough task of bowling to a Cheadle side who had scored 240-2 the previous week with then opening left handed batsman scoring 100 in his first game of the season.

The captain chose to go with medium pace and spin from either end and the left handed almost played on to his own stumps early on in the first few overs. He went on to score (36) before falling to Ed Tilliard by snicking off to Fairclough in the slips. A straightforward catch at mid off from the experienced James Fraser off the bowling of Fairclough gave Cheadle a good start (62-2).

However, the Oxton side showed heart and grit and bowling remained tight and difficult for the home team to score off. A bit more luck and the game could well have been very interesting towards the end.

As it happened, Cheadle only secured victory with 6 balls remaining which credit to Oxton gave lots of positives to take from the game and 7 points to move off the bottom of the table.

Williams and Fairclough took the other 2 Oxton wickets with Cheadle finishing 116-4 off 37.5 overs.
