A SIX-WICKET haul from veteran Steve Foster and Andy Booth's unbeaten century helped relieved Runcorn end their losing streak.
A six-wicket home victory over rock-bottom Wilmslow took the Moughland Lane men 28 points clear of the two relegation places in Meller Braggins Cheshire League Division One.
Electing to field, Runcorn had seen their bowlers struggle to contain the early visiting batsmen with Harris (89) and Fallon (34) being mainly responsible for the Wilmslow effort moving to 147-3 in the 34th over.
The introduction of Foster brought a dramatic change of fortune for Runcorn, as Wilmslow were dismissed for 181.
Foster ended with 6-35 from seven overs and he was aided by Steven Sheakey (1-38 off 15 overs) and Steve Ollerenshaw (1-42 off 11 overs). Matt Lintill and Iain Williams chipped in with vital run-outs.
With 46 overs to score the runs, Runcorn started steadily and progressed to 42-3 on the 12th over.
Opener Booth was joined by Williams (17) in a stand of 60 for the fourth wicket and then by Mark Cahill (43 not out) in an unbroken match-clinching partnership of 81.
Booth completed an unbeaten 102no in the 40th over.
Booth hit 16 fours and Cahill seven fours and two sixes as Runcorn claimed 25 points to Wilmslow's seven.
