OULTON Park's bowling sensation, Danny Jones, who has been selected for Cheshire after just two matches, set up a resounding victory over Poynton on Saturday.
He removed the home team's top three bats in a devastating display of left-arm pace.
Quicksilver wicketkeeper Mike Bentham picked up two, including Barbadian Derwent Thompson, to reduce Poynton to 26-3.
Chris Jones then replaced his brother and his left-arm spin brought him 4-27. With skipper Stuart Eaton (3-14) mopping up the tail, Poynton were all out for 84.
Oulton needed just 70 minutes, 19 overs and three batsmen to make 88-1 (Liam Buchanan 42, Danny Leech 29 not out) and move into second place in the ECB Premiership.
It was a similar tale at Little Budworth: Poynton 2nds 118ao (Ric Moore 3-8, Steve Wright 2-25, Simon Torlop 3-28), Oulton 2nds 120-2 (Mark Johnson 40no, Nick Jones 30, Steve Yates 24no).
Moore, along with Jimmy Guest, John Kettle and Laura Thompson, have all won places in the Cheshire U15s squad.
Meanwhile, Andy Wilgose (18) and allrounder Paddy Guest have been picked for Cheshire U19s to play English Universities on May 27. Wilgose has also been selected for Cheshire 2nds.
Oulton 3rds made their Division Two bow and scored big: Oulton 222-7 (Owen Williamson 61, John Kettle 38) Timperley 3rds 148-6 (Damien Barton 2-25). WINNINGTON Park got the better of Division One leaders Bramhall, who are led by Cheshire skipper Andy Hall.
A stand of 94 between Craig Little and Jim Pilling transformed Winnington's indifferent start.
Little was the big hitter, with Pilling cast in the support role. The former was caught behind for 86 - giving him an average so far of 267 - and the latter was stumped for 24. Brother Tom made 21 as Winnington declared at 190-8.
Hall led Bramhall to 75-0 when Stuart Hayes tempted him to a slog-sweep and James Lewis took the top-edge catch at cover.
With only 22 overs completed, the run chase was on, but 10 overs of tight bowling put Park back in the driving seat.
Bramhall were struggling at 95-6 and played out the final nine overs for the draw at 125-8 (Hayes 5-48 off 20 overs).
Captain Mike Johns said: 'The end result doesn't really do us credit.
'We completed outplayed a good team and deserved to win.' WEAVERHAM remained in the Division Two basement after losing at home to Cheadle.
Skipper Jon Lightfoot cited a stuttering batting display for the defeat.
Rob McMillan and Guy Groves both scored 49 and Lightfoot himself a quick-fire 25 to help get things moving, but wickets were lost at vital times and the innings failed to gain momentum in the latter overs.
Weaverham were bowled out for 150 and Cheadle knocked off the runs in 47 overs.
They were 55-0 after only 12 overs. Lightfoot (2-25) and McMillan (3-50) did peg them back and leg-spinner Jamie Allen added to a far more encouraging display, even though Cheadle made 153-6.
The 2nds, unable to winkle out the last man, narrowly missed out on victory.
Weaverham scored 189-6, thanks mainly to Kevin Douglas, whose superb 95 took him past the 200-run mark in three games so far. Phil Harris hit a supportive 32 and spinners Gordon Allen (4-29) and Anthony Mainwaring (2-45) did best as Cheadle breathed a sigh of relief at 155-9. MIDDLEWICH looked increasingly at home at the higher level. They moved into fourth place with a six-wicket home win against Tattenhall.
John Shepherd was the hero, taking 7-26 as the visitors collapsed to 99ao. Chris Ainley scored 32 in Middlewich's 101-4.
