ROUNDERS activities have suffered from all the recent wind and rain.

Pilkington Crusaders match v Pilkington Vikings was postponed on account of the strong winds.

On Wednesday Canterbury Belles entertained Hayock CC at Clock Face Miners and both teams were two short. Despite the rain which started to fall as the match began they carried on.

Haydock won the toss and deciding to bat they faced 45 balls and scored 8 rounders from 45 balls.

Full rounders came from Sharon Green and Gemma Hurst (3) with ½’s added by Gemma Cunningham, Lucy Devereaux (2), Gemma H (2) and Sharon (2): a ½ was also added to Lucy for consecutive no-balls.

In reply, Belles were held to 1½ from 23 balls with ½’s from Bev Whyment, Sue Smith and Talitha Whyment.

Obliged to follow on, they faced just 15 balls but could not improve their score. Final score 8:1½.

On the other side of town, Wild Cats entertained Pilkington Centurions at Haresfinch Sports Club and beat them 11:4 and an innings.

Top scorer was Lorraine Gabbitas with 5½, supported by Helen Kewley with 2; Natalie Cotham with 1½ and Di Arnold & Sara McManus, each with a ½.
