Cheshire Cricket Alliance Awards

Richie Beckett & Matthew Hoggard ©Richie Beckett & Matthew Hoggard
On Friday 13th November our cricketers once again attended the Cheshire Cricket Alliance league dinner at the Britannia Hotel in Didsbury. 

They were entertained by ex-England bowler Matthew Hoggard who was guest of honour.

We knew that our Second Team were due a trophy for finishing second in the League and this was duly accepted by our proud chairman Stew McEwen.

For the third year running Old Parkonians were the recipients of the Umpire's Fair Play Award which was accepted by our Club President Richie Beckett who, remarkably, did not make a speech! (Was he suffering from laryngitis? Ed)

CCA Awards, 2015 ©CCA Awards, 2015
Due to the efforts of our Club Committee in giving advice and guidance to the League Management Committee, we were also rewarded the League's Club Secretary of the Year award which was gratefully received by our Hon Secretary, Terry Marnick.

A very entertaining night was had by all who attended.

Congratulations to all of our prize winners and players for the efforts both on and off the field last season and we look forward to the challenges of the new season.

Cricket Match Reports ~ Saturday 5th September

The 1st XI drew away at Mellor.

After a very awkward trip, a delayed start with 35 overs a side was agreed. Standing in for the temporarily absent skipper, Ben Rees lost the toss on a soaking deck and was inserted to bat.

The wicket proved to play a lot better than what it looked, with both openers Ben Rees and Charlie Allen hitting big straight sixes early on before Rees (12) ran himself out to a good direct hit. Mike Hitchell, promoted to 3 was in marvellous touch, striking the ball well to all parts. The pair put on 36 before Allen (25) was caught behind off the only wicket taker, Marsland (8-3-35-1) with a skiddy delivery.

These proved to be the only 2 wickets of the innings as Mark Rayner joined Hitchell at the crease. Hitchell (84*) continued his aggressive play and Rayner (42*) joined in as the pair enjoyed an unbeaten partnership of 126 in 25 overs, closing the innings on 179-2 from 35 overs.

After the tea interval, the Mellor chase started exceptionally well. Openers Smith and Harrison put on 93 for the first wicket inside 20 overs. However, once Smith (49) was out caught and bowled by Nedugodan and Harrison was caught behind off the same bowler, the Mellor chase came to a standstill. Hodgeson (32) took advantage of the tiny straight boundary, miscuing several sixes before being caught and bowled by Rees.

Beckett chipped in with an LBW and when Marsland (12) was bowled by Nedugodan (9-1-42-3), the batting was all but over. A one handed snatch by Beckett off Rees meant 2 wickets were required from the last 2 overs, however it wasn't to be like the corresponding fixture earlier this season. Mellor closed on 156-7. Ben Rees finished with figures of 7-0-27-2.

Next week sets up the season finale. Promotion isn't possible, however a possibility of 4th is available if we knuckle down and beat this seasons Division 2 champions.

Scores: Old Parkonians 179-2 (35 overs), Mellor 156-7 (35 overs)

Results: Draw . Old Parks 14 points, Mellor 5 points.

Cricket Match Reports ~ Saturday 22nd August

The 1st XI had no game as Norbury conceded at home. It now looks like they may too fold during the season, furthering the agony for ourselves and other teams in our league.

The 2nd XI collapsed in dramatic fashion at a muggy Holm Lane to fellow promotion rivals Saughall in a game that that saw them drop from top spot down to fourth as a result.

Batting first the home side found the going tough from the start and runs proved very difficult to come by as Saughall, taking advantage of the cancellation of their first team fixture, bowled very tightly. The opening duo of Carl Brannon and John Orr put on 26 for the first wicket in 38 minutes and 12 over’s before was caught by T Roberts off the bowling of Alan Roberts 
(14-8-12-5) for 8. Stu Barr (1) was unable to repeat the heroics of his last two innings falling very soon after bowled by Roberts. Danny Berkson, also in fine form of late, occupied the crease with Brannon for a while but just as looked like they may have broken the shackles Brannon (15) was bowled by Roberts. Berkson (7) holed out to L Langmead at Mid On off the bowling of Mike Andrews (15-4-25-4) and then Dave Gallwey was trapped LBW off the very next ball and Peter Fearon (1) went the same way 2 over’s later. Dave Roscoe was caught by T Mann off Roberts for a duck, Sam Cotgrave was run out by A Thomas without scoring and then Andrews mopped up the tail end bowling Rob Barr and having David Buey caught at Mid Off by M Axon, neither of them troubling the scorer as they slumped to 50 all out off just 29 over’s. Paul Taylor was left high and dry on 5 NO.

In reply Saughall too found it slow going and at 26 for 1, Danny Berkson (8-2-21-1) claiming the wicket of T Roberts (12), were in similar territory as the Old Parks attack tried to redeem something from the game. John Orr (9-2-16-1) then had M Axon (5) caught at Extra Cover by Robbie Barr but any hope of a famous victory was short lived as M Barrow (16 NO) and A Thomas (14 NO) took the visitors past the required total within 20 over’s. Stu Barr returned figures of 2-0-10-0.

It was a hugely disappointing result and uncharacteristic for the way the seconds have played over the course of the campaign so far.

Team: Brannon+, Orr, Barr S, Berkson D, Fearon, Gallwey, Taylor, Roscoe, Cotgrave, Barr R and Buey*

Cricket Match Reports ~ Saturday 8th August

The 1st XI had next game this week due to the concession from Eastham.

**UPDATE** We have had word this week that Eastham will not be fulfilling their remaining fixtures this season and will likely fold.

The 2nd XI drew at home to Appleton 4th XI.

It was a frustrating afternoon at Holm Lane as Old Parkonians were unable to see off a negative Appleton side intent on damage limitation.

For once the sun shone brightly and the home side, looking to secure all the available points, elected to bat making most of the perfect conditions. Carl Brannon (8) waved the bat at a wide delivery from Katherine Jackson (9-0-45-1) and Dave Darbyshire held on at first slip for the catch and the hosts had lost their first wicket without reaching double figures. Stuart Barr continued his fine late form as he and John Orr (24) added 105 for the second wicket before Orr was bowled by Phil Pugh (10-3-22-1). Danny Berkson, in at four looked assured following on from his fine innings the previous week with another unbeaten 53 as Old Parks coasted to 232 for 2 before declaring with Barr recording a career best unbeaten 117, his second successive century.

A new ball and high tempo saw the Appleton innings get off to a slow start and it was obvious from the outset this would be a war of attrition with the visitors making no attempt to win the game. A breakthrough came after half an hour when skipper Andy Thorley was superbly run out by Dave Gallwey for 5. Phil Grumley didn’t last long as Berkson, who would have an outstanding afternoon in the field, took the catch off the bowling of Stewie McEwen (14-2-30-1) without scoring. Pugh and David Lomas demonstrated their first team credentials as they occupied the crease adding sixty runs using thirteen over’s until Pugh looking to hook caught a top edge and the catch fell kindly to Orr off Barr (6-0-22-1). Darbyshire frustrated the Parkonians attack using up almost ten over’s and a little over an hour. Lomas eventually came unstuck inexplicably charging down the wicket to Sam Cotgrave (4-0-18-1) and getting an edge which Brannon held for a decent knock of 55. Ian Findley added 3 runs before falling LBW to Adam Winstanley and Darbyshire followed shortly after again caught by Brannon this time off Winstanley (15-5-30-2). Rotating the bowlers in an attempt to unsettle the resilient defence of the visitors brought Brannon’s third catch of a fine afternoon with the gloves giving Berkson (6-0-22-1) a deserved wicket but it was to prove too little too late as Appleton clung on seeing out the 48 over’s with M Smith (20 NO) and Alex Warham (1 NO). Mark Rayner finished a short spell with figures of 3-2-3-0.
It is disappointing when a team shows no commitment to winning a game but if we are to realise our aspirations we need to learn how to bowl teams out as that is the fifth time the seconds have drawn a game this campaign.

Team: Brannon+, Orr, Barr, Berkson D, Fearon, Gallwey, Rayner, Winstanley, Buey*, Cotgrave and McEwen

Cricket Match Reports ~ Saturday 18th July

The 1st XI won away at Frodsham.

A superb opening spell of bowling from Rob Marnick ensured Old Parks were only chasing a small total. Bowling from the 'motorway end' and on a fairly dodgy wicket, Marnick destroyed everything infront of him returning excellent figures of 15-2-43-7.

Skipper Beckett opened the bowling also and claimed 13.5-2-36-3 as the pair of openers dismissed the Frodsham XI for 96.

The returning Nick Hitchell got a superb delivery and had to depart for just 1, however fellow opener Ian Smith ground out in his usual fashion. Hitting 36 from 110 balls, Smith fell with the total just 6 runs short of the required rate. Charlie Allen (18) stuck around for a while before departing prior to Smith and it was 1st XI season debutant, Sean Marnick who was able to get the visitors home, scoring 13 off 31 balls.

It was an epic battle for the batsmen who did superbly on a very difficult batting track.

Next week is a huge one, Rylands at home before tour. A home win would put us right up there in the promotion race!

Scores: Old Parkonians 97-3 (33 overs), Frodsham 96 all out (31.5 overs)

Results: Old Parkonians won by 7 wickets . Old Parks 25 points, Frodsham 4 points.


Team: Chris Beckett (C), Ian Smith, Charlie Allen, Ben Thomas, Mike Hitchell (WK), David Nedugoden, Chris Hitchell, Nick Hitchell, Rob Marnick, Sean Marnick and Greg Lindop.

The 2nd XI won at home to Rylands.

Sam Cotgrave played a timely innings as Old Parkonians continued their recent fine run of form. It was a very one sided affair the last time the sides met on a wet May day bank holiday weekend but this time it would be quite different on a bright but windy afternoon at Holm Lane. 
Old Parkonians won the toss, batted first and got off to a flying start thanks, in part, to some wayward bowling from I Jones (1-0-11-0) with Carl Brannon (27) taking full advantage. John Orr (3) never really got going and Jones went someway to addressing his bowling woes by catching him off a leading edge at mid on bowled G Moores (15-2-62-4). Mark Rayner also went cheaply this time caught by G Shaw bowled Tim Taylor for 4 leaving the home side on 43 for 2. That was almost immediately 43 for 3 when Brannon, looking to crash the ball over the mid wicket boundary, caught an inside edge and dragged the ball onto his wicket as Rylands smelt blood.
Duncan Meehan (24) and the returning Dave Gallwey (22) restored some normality to proceedings adding 43 for the fourth wicket before Meehan came down the wicket and was stumped by skipper Phil Mansfield off the bowling of Moores. Gallwey fell soon after as Moores claimed his fourth wicket of the afternoon and at 93 for 5 Old Parkonians found themselves in somewhat unfamiliar territory and in pursuit of some much needed batting points. Paul Singer looked at ease but was undone by a fine caught & bowled by A Barker for 9. David Buey (16) and Sam Cotgrave (19) played patiently gently easing the score along until Buey was deceived by a ball that kept low and was bowled by Taylor (12-4-25-2). Cotgrave was caught by Taylor off Barker (13.1-0-46-4) leaving Stew McEwen (6) and Alexa Harrison (7) to push the score past 150 but both eventually falling victims to Barker. Tony Cowell, on his full league debut, remained unbeaten on 2 as Old Parkonians innings closed on 156 off 44.1 over’s.

Once again Buey elected to employ slow bowling from both ends, a ploy that had served the team so well in the first fixture. Rylands got off to a steady start though, as time after time, both A Mansfield (26) and Barker (8) found the gaps. Brannon eventually stumping Barker off the bowling of McEwen (15-2-66-5) and soon after Brannon was at it again, this time Mansfield was his victim and Orr (15-2-41-2) the bowler. G Shaw (11) was despatched back to the pavilion thanks to a smart catch by Cowell at mid wicket and then the cavalier Phil Mansfield was well caught by Buey at long on just as he threatened to turn the game on its head, McEwen the bowler in both instances. The visitors found themselves at 74 for 5 and still 83 runs shy of their target when Brannon, having a fine afternoon with the gloves, stumped J Mansfield for 8 handing McEwen his 5th wicket. Moores was superbly caught and bowled by Orr for 6 moments after riding his luck on what looked a plum LBW decision. T Major (20) was forging his team past the 100 mark when he fell to a stunning caught & bowled by Mark Rayner (1.4-0-3-2) and then shortly after Rayner struck again bowling Taylor for 2 and that closed the Rylands innings on 114 and giving Old Parkonians a 42 run victory and the maximum 25 points.

Team: Brannon+, Orr, Rayner, Meehan, Gallwey, Singer, Buey*, Cotgrave, McEwen, Harrison and Cowell.
Scorer: Sam Fletcher

Cricket Match Reports ~ Saturday 11th July

The 1st XI had a free weekend due to Ellesmere Port folding.

Stuart Barr returned figures of 6 for 32 as Old Parkonians 2nd XI recorded an emphatic victory away at Port Sunlight. It was a great team effort in which each of the bowlers would play their part. Danny Berkson bowled 7 over’s, 3 maidens for just 10 runs taking the wicket of opener N Corcoran (4) in the process caught Paul Singer at second slip. The returning Ben Thomas also had a good afternoon again bowling 7 over’s, 2 maidens for 18 runs claiming the wicket of the other opener G Lockhead (16) thanks to a superb catch by Sam Cotgrave at deep square leg.
Port Sunlight won the toss and elected to bat as the clouds gathered overhead. The forecast for rain later in the afternoon would have had a bearing on the decision but it was one that ultimately did not matter as the visitors took wickets at frequent intervals. Cotgrave (7-0-38-1) bowled Captain M Tidy for a duck leaving the home side on 35 for 3 off 15 over’s. Just one run had been added when the fourth wicket fell. T Corcoran, no doubt looking to up the run rate, was caught by Mark Rayner at mid off giving Barr his first victim of the afternoon. 
B Nelson-Scott was in no mood to hang around and he fired off 5 boundaries on his way to a quick-fire 24 but was outsmarted when Singer was removed from the slips and placed on the boundary at ‘Cow Corner’ and in going for another boundary Singer was perfectly positioned and pulled off a great catch. C Wilkinson (20) was trapped LBW by Barr. M Sundve was bowled by Barr without scoring, M Davis was caught by Thomas without scoring and G Morris was caught behind by Mike Hitchell also without scoring as the wickets tumbled to Barr. Doug Byrne was offering resistance but he was outsmarted by young Tim Berkson (1.1-0-8-1) for 36 bringing the innings to a close leaving Pete Sundve not out for 2 and the total on 108 from 30.1 over’s.

The teams turned straight around given the early conclusion of the Port Sunlight innings and Mark Rayner with Sean Marnick set about chasing the modest total. Marnick was the first to go with the score on 31 bowled by a cracking delivery from Pete Sundve (7-2-16-1) for 13. Two minutes later and Rayner (11) was heading back to the pavilion, this time young B Nelson-Scott (7-3-5-2) had him caught behind by Wilkinson with the score still on 31 and when Paul Singer (7) became Nelson-Scott’ second victim of the innings, again caught behind by Wilkinson, you could sense an air of optimism wash over the home side. Peter Fearon (22 NO) and Danny Berkson (34) got the Old Parks innings back into gear and it looked as though the pairing would be there to see it through but Berkson top edged it to Tidy at mid on off Byrne (2-0-11-1) leaving Mike Hitchell (9 NO) to crash the winning runs over the square leg boundary securing a 6 wicket victory.

Team: Rayner, Marnick, Singer, Fearon, Berkson D, Hitchell M+, Berkson T, Thomas, Barr S, Buey* and Cotgrave.
Scorer: Sam Fletcher.

Cricket Match Reports ~ Saturday 4th July

The 1st XI lost in a run-fest away at Bowden Vale.

The smallest ground in the league saw 467 runs including 20 sixes on a lovely July day.

Old Parks skipper Beckett won another toss and chose to bat. After Smith (4) had got out cheaply, Allen (13) following shortly after and Mike Hitchell being caught for a duck, the away side were in a bit of strife. The score was at a very steady 35-3 from 18 overs.

Opening batsman Rees and number five Nedugodan decided to push on quickly, trying to avoid an embarrassingly low score. A partnership of 80 developed between the pair in just 8 overs, pushing the score to 110 before Nedugodan (46) was bowled by Hasan trying to hit the forth six of his innings. A brilliant, hard hitting knock off just 34 balls.

This brought Chris Hitchell to the crease who batted in a similar manner to the previous pair, though a few beautiful cover drives made his innings certainly more orthodox. Rees passed his 50 and the pair put on 83 runs for the fifth wicket, before Rees (76) was eventually caught after a superbly weighted 106 ball knock. 198-5 from 41 overs.

Westwater came out to try and push on too, but could only managed 7 before being caught. Hitchell passed his 50 in style with another lovely cover drive and Myles Allen came in for 5 balls to hit 7 runs. Old Parks finished on 233-6, with Hitchell unbeaten on 62 from 57 balls. 200 runs came from the final 27 overs, a superb recovery!

After tea, the Old Parks lads knew that Bowden Vale had a few big hitters, but we did have runs on the board. Unfortunately, it appeared 233 wasn't enough as opener Drape hit a very quick 44 before being caught behind off Marnick. Next man in Ollier didn't hang around either, bludgeoning runs around the ground in a mixture of fine hits and some rather agricultural strikes.

Westwater was brought into the attack and soon had the remaining opener, Power (7) caught at short cover. In came Hasan, who displayed some fine clean hitting with 71 runs off around 30 balls. His innings featuring nine maximums. The unfortunate bowler being Westwater who conceded 73 runs from nine overs.

When Hasan was finally out, the score was at 155-3 off 22 overs, with Ollier still at the crease. The score reached 203 before the next wicket fell with Ollier (58) finally caught by Beckett off the bowling of Winstanley. The game was all but over, but a quick two wickets in two balls for Winstanley nearly brought some added drama to the game with Bowden Vale being 205-6.

Platt (21) and Pentecost (8) saw the game out however, taking the home side past the required total with 9 overs to spare. Winstanley was the only pick of the bowlers, returning figures of 7-1-39-3.

It was a disappointing loss given our sizeable total, but it turned out another 30 runs was probably required and their run chase was assisted by seven dropped catches.

We should take the positives however, as if we can make that many runs every week, we will rarely come out the losers.

Scores: Old Parkonians 233-6 all out (45 overs), Bowden Vale 234-6 (36 overs)

Results: Bowden Vale won by 4 wickets. Old Parks 13 points, Bowden Vale 25 points.


Team: Chris Beckett (C), Ian Smith, Myles Allen, Ben Rees, Mike Hitchell (WK), David Nedugoden, Chris Hitchell, Adam Westwater, Rob Marnick, Adam Winstanley, Charlie Allen.

Umpires: Bill Alger and Keith Gardiner  Scorer: Richie Beckett


The 2nd XI drew at home to Glazebury.

An unbeaten century from Nick Hitchell could not wrestle a victory against a resilient Glazebury side intent on eking out the draw.
The game marked the start of the second half of the season and Old Parkonians, fresh from last week’s victory, were determined to seek redress from the opening day defeat back in April. It started off well with Hitchell and John Orr (15) putting on 35 for the first wicket. Orr was dropped in the third over but was eventually the victim of a ‘yorker’ by visiting Captain Chris Ayre (7-1-27-1).

Sean Marnick, in a rich vein of form, joined Hitchell at the crease and for the second week running they added over 100 for the second wicket until he was bowled by H Dahou (14.4-1-45-3) for 44. Paul Singer added 15 and Peter Fearon 17 before they were dismissed by G Southworth, bowled (14-0-90-1) and Dahou caught D Nicholson. Nicholson himself has a frustrating time with the ball returning figures of 7-0-42-0. Dave Roscoe added 3 off 10 balls falling victim to Dahou leaving Hitchell unbeaten on 103 as the declaration came with the score on 208 for 5 off 43 over’s.

After tea and with the sun still shining brightly the home side set about the task in hand. The reply got off to a great start when Wicket Keeper Roscoe caught opener P Warhurst (1) bowled Danny Berkson (12-4-22-3) with just a single run on the board. I McCue laboured away frustratingly at the other end facing 43 deliveries before scoring his first run of the afternoon just as he had done in the reverse fixture. Nicholson, in complete contrast, tried to take the game to Old Parks but paid the price being clean bowled by Berkson for 18. Dahou added a patient 34 but was deceived by the slower ball from Tim Berkson 5-1-18-2) with elder brother Danny taking the catch at Mid Off. John Orr (14-7-24-0) tied up one end but was unable to find a way through as Skipper David Buey used 7 bowlers trying to unsettle the visitors.

Nick Hitchell (4-0-9-1) bowled Hutchinson (2) and it looked like the balance of the game was turning into a likely victory for the home side. McCue batted for 2 hours and 10 mins scoring a painstaking 26 but fell to Tim Berkson, stumped Roscoe in what proved to be the most popular wicket of the afternoon but he had helped his team immensely. Captain Ayre (10) bowled D Berkson and Meulman (28) caught Sam Cotgrave bowled Paul Singer (8-1-21-1) took the score onto 136 for 7 leaving Old Parkonians seeking 2 wickets in 5 balls which proved to be an impossible task and the game petered out into a frustrating draw, Old Parks accruing 14 points and Glazebury 9. 

Team: Hitchell N, Orr, Cotgrave, Marnick S, Fearon, Singer, Berkson D, Rayner, Buey, Roscoe and Berkson T

Cricket Match Reports ~ Saturday 27th June

The 1st XI came second best to league leaders Maritime at Bromborough Pool.

On winning the toss, Skipper Beckett opted to bat on a grassy but hard looking deck.

Openers Smith and Rees put only 16 on this week for the first wicket, with Smith (4) getting a superb slower ball yorker from Rajaveen. With the score at 28, Rees (12) then departed being given out for a dubious looking LBW, again off the bowling of the impressive Rajaveen. Nedugodan joined Mike Hitchell at the crease but the pair only managed a 12 run partnership as Rajaveen took his third wicket bowling Hitchell for 12.

Lindop came out to bat and a brief partnership took the score to 67-3 until Lindop (8) mis-timed a pull off Asad. Nedugodan battled hard for his 20, eventually skying one to Rajaveen off the bowling of home captian, Anton Jastin. Chris Hitchell and Adam Westwater again tried hard to steady the ship, but when Westwater was out caught of the bowling of Jastin the score was at 79-6.

Myles Allen joined Chris at the crease and a solid 40 run partnership developed before Allen (18) was bowled by Khan. With the score at 119-7, Marnick only lasted 7 balls for his 2 runs and Beckett collected his first duck of the season. When last man Winstanley came out with the score at 125-9, Hitchell decided to have a big heave at one and unfortunately missing it, being bowled by Jastin for a superbly made 23. Winstanley was left at the other end unbeaten on 0.

Opener Rajaveen returned good figures of 13-2-43-3, Haroon Khan 7-3-11-3 and home skipper Jastin claimed 6.1-1-10-3.

With tea not quite ready, it was agreed to play 40 minutes before tea. The Maritime players were not in the mood for carrying on after tea and came out batting very agressively. Openers Marnick (3-0-25-0) and Winstanley (1-0-11-0) were given very brief spells as pace off seemed the direction to head in.

The bowling of Westwater and Beckett did slow down the run rate, however when tea was taken, the home side were 73-1 off 12 overs with the only wicket to fall being Jerry (23) bowled Westwater. The first over after tea was a Wicket maiden from Beckett, having Mathan caught behind for 28. adding perhaps a little bit of pressure. The incoming batsmen were all playing in similar style however and the result looked certain. Gayan 27) was out stumped off Westwater trying to hit the ball out the ground as the score reached 87-3.

Nedugodan replaced Beckett and took a wicket in his third over, having Khan caught by Westwater, 91-5.
