TATTENHALL claimed a winning draw when they entertained Stockport Georgians on Saturday.

The visitors put the home side into bat and made quick inroads. John Gibbon was unlucky to be run out by a Danny Ahmed drive that hit the stumps at the non-striker's end via the bowler's hands.

Tattenhall went on to reach 191-8, Ahmed playing straight and positively for a fine half century.

Elliot (36), Graham Harper (29) and skipper Rob Mulvihill (31) also contributed.

Georgian's reply started well before Mulvihill removed the dangerous Bailey for 18.

The ever-consistent Mel Dobson (4-79) and Forster, who bowled two tight overs taking two key wickets to turn the game, restricted Stockport to 184-8.

ALVANLEY fell 16 runs short of victory and had to settle for a draw when they entertained Davenham.

The visitors batted first and got off to a superb start, reaching the 129-run mark off their first 20 overs.

Nick McKay removed Bentley and Ashley while Phil Jones and James Rowlinson picked up one wicket each as Davenham finished on 263-5.

Alvanley lost Mark Szymura for six and Nick McKay for 17 before Andy Bennion (114no) and Cei Sanderson (49) picked up the momentum.

Glenn Pickersgill hit a quickfire 21 but Davenham's target proved too much and Alvanley closed on 247-7.

CHOLMONDELEY lost to Oakmere by seven wickets after reaching 157-7 .

Openers Luca Heritage (36) and Will Hockenhull (37) reached 75 for the first wicket but it was slow going - and then wickets tumbled (Ben Briscoe 18, Mark Jones 12no).

Paceman Neil Thompson reduced Oakmere to 21-3 off nine overs but they rode the storm and then accelerated to victory. Thompson final figures were 3-41 off 10 overs.

Tomorrow, fourth-placed Cholmondeley are away at Davenham who are one place above them.

In Division Two, hosts BARROW eased their relegation fears with a 25-point victory over base-ment side Cheadle Hulme Ladybridge.
