KIWI Tom Hyslop hit a half-century as Tattenhall romped to victory in their opening match of the County League Division Two season.
Tatts travelled to Mobberley on Saturday and took 20 points to their hosts’ one, batting second.
Rob Mulvihill (2-23) and new boy Hyslop (2-23) had Mobberley wobbling on 31-3 before the introduction of Gary Forster (6-17) ensured a complete collapse.
Mobberley were eventually all out for 80 from 33 overs and Tattenhall made short work of their target, taking 18.2 overs to reach 82-1, debutant Hyslop (50) joining John Hope (21) at the crease to finish the job.
MALPAS enjoyed a 51-run victory at Timperley. Tony Crabb (72) and Jon Suckley (66no) starred with the bat, putting on 117 for the fourth wicket.
Their stand set the platform for a good total of 217-9dec.
Timperley’s innings was reduced to 19-2 but steady batting had them 125-4 and a close finish was in prospect.
But Malpas opening bowler Phil Johnson (5-65) returned and took three quick wickets on his debut as Timperley were all out for 166.
Tattenhall 2nds overcame Mobberley 2nds at the Flacca, bowling the visitors out for 99 with Callum Wilson taking 5-3 from eight overs.
Openers Cliff Nichols and Jason Davidson then shared an 88-run partnership as they steered Tatts to the brink of victory. Two wickets were lost before the Mobberley total was bettered.
Malpas 2nds lost by 51 runs to Heaton Mersey, who declared on 199-8. Simon Swift took six wickets for Malpas, who were all out for 148 (Danny Lloyd 45) in reply.
