RUGBY UNION: Winnington Park have paid tribute to rugby league player Dave Myers who was killed in an accident on the M6 last Monday.
Myers played at Burrows Hill during the 1998/99 season after finishing his summer RL season with Salford.
A club spokesman said: “The late Vince Murphy, coach at Park at the time, had brought Dave to Burrows Hill to beef up the team which he certainly did. However, like many converts at the time, he struggled with the union code and was released after three months.
“He was a very polite, unassuming type when he was here with no airs and graces despite his achievements and the level he had previously played.
“It must be a very sad time for his family and the thoughts of all of us here at Winnington Park RUFC are with them at this moment.”
Terry is the top rod
ANGLING: Terry Middleton reeled in the honours at Barnton and Frodsham AC’s club match on Heesom’s pool last week.
Bites were few and far between but Middleton netted victory with 7-9-0 of skimmers and crucians taken on a tip rod with red maggot from peg 16.
Second place went to John Cheetham (peg 7) with 6-7-0 of skimmers and roach with Mike Smith (peg 27) in third with 3-6-0 of skimmers.
Round one of the six-match series for the Brown Cup was held on Sunday morning on the River Weaver at Anderton. Bob Foster, peg 22, claimed the maximum points on offer thanks to a single skimmer of 0-13-0 taken on a pole-feeder with big maggot on the hook. Runner-up Chris Parry netted small roach, chublets and dace for 0-9-0 while Arthur Kenney and Chris Simmons shared third with 0-1-0 each.
Leech in big-hit list
CRICKET: Oulton Park batsman Danny Leech had the seventh highest batting average in the Cheshire County League this season.
The former Winnington Park star averaged 50.88 runs from 19 innings, making seven half centuries on his way to an overall total of 814.
All-rounder Nathan Dumelow joined Leech in the end-of-season honours as the second best all-rounder, scoring 582 runs and taking 39 wickets.
