FRODSHAM are hovering one place above the relegation zone in Division One.

They went down at home by seven wickets to Haslington on Saturday.

Frodsham scored 96ao, with Geoff Abram making 32. Promotion-chasing Haslington then scored 100-3.

In Division Two, an impressive bowling performance helped SAUGHALL to 25 points in their home match against Holmes Chapel.

The visitors batted first and their innings started like a twenty20 match with shots aplenty, a galloping run-rate and wickets tumbling on a frequent basis.

Dipak Jena (4-37) and the impressive Lawrence Gotts (3-21), who took two wickets in two balls, restricted Holmes Chapel to 107.

The bowlers had done their job and, unlike in previous weeks, the Saughall batsmen were able to follow suit.

Holmes Chapel’s new ball attack probed away with a swinging ball but a 44-run opening partnership put the Chester hosts well on the road to victory.

Martin Huxley (17), the in-form Mike Andrews (0) and Chris Andrews (10) all perished, but calm batting from James Huxley (43) and Adam Griffiths (28no) helped Saughall to 108-3.

In Division Three, CAPENHURST lost by 80 runs at home to Styal. Cape were all out for 64 chasing 144.
