THERE was disappointment for Alsager and Weston in the county cup competitions on Sunday.
Alsager fell to a five-wicket defeat at home to Hyde in the opening round of the Jaguar House Cheshire Cup. After being bowled out for 95, Alsager saw Hyde book their place in the second round with a reply of 96-5.
Meanwhile, an understrength Weston slumped to defeat against Broadbottom in the Jaguar House Cheshire Shield. Weston batted first and were bowled out for 98 despite a captain's contribution of 53 coming from Paul Newnes.
Broadbottom cruised to a five-wicket win in just 33 overs, despite Newnes completing his fine display by taking 3-26 from his nine overs.
