OULTON Park are looking forward to the biggest weekend in the club's history.
They play Neston on Saturday in a match which could take them to within touching distance of the Murray Smith County League championship and on Sunday host Bowdon in the final of the Cheshire Cup (1pm).
Queensland batsman Andy Robinson smashed the quickest century of the season to take Oulton a big step closer to the title.
And Steve Selwood was not so far behind in the Cheshire Cup triumph against Macclesfield.
Robinson's 101 off 66 balls - his second ton of the campaign taking his tally to 855 runs - played a leading role in Park's five-wicket win at Poynton which sent the Stockport club back to the bottom of the table.
Poynton were bowled out for 164, Cheshire paceman Danny Jones claiming 4-21 and Oulton replied with 165-5, losing four wickets for two runs before they finally reached their target.
On Sunday Macclesfield scored 205-8 (Danny Jones 2-40, John Davies 3-37) provoking Oulton into a storm of runs - 209-2 in 25.3 overs, Selwood smashing 121 in 77 balls. Nathan Dumelow (39no) and Paul Berry (32) were in support.
Other scores: Poynton 2nds 207-5 dec (Craig Williamson 3-72) Oulton 2nds 183-9 (John Kettle 47, Jimmy Guest 37); Oulton 3rds 154-8 (Williamson 45, Ben Kettle 30) Hyde 3rds 130 (Stuart McLeod 8-19).
WINNINGTON PARK have a little breathing space at the foot of Division One, but must pick up over the final three weeks after losing at home to Alsager, who set a hefty 234-7 target.
Only teenager Michael Caldecott showed proficiency with the bat as others came and went around his innings of 48. Park were bowled out for 140.
MIDDLEWICH look like becoming Mid Cheshire's yo-yo club.
Twice promoted from the Cheshire League they look likely to make their second drop after a disastrous batting collapse at Haddon Field.
Bollington were restricted to 149-8 and Stuart Price had done his bit by taking 3-30, but Middlewich managed just 80 runs in reply.
NORTHWICH took another stride towards promotion from the Cheshire Building Scoiety Cheshire Alliance by beating main rivals Chelford despite a lengthy injury list.
Chelford were bowled out for 118 and John Hughes was the man in form with the bat for Northwich, steering them to 121-3 and back to the top of the table.
But HARTFORD suffered a reversal at Disley where they managed only 105-9, Martin Pickup scoring 48 of the runs.
Brian Harkin took 4-34 but could not stop Disley reaching 108-7.
OAKMERE won the Meller Braggins Cheshire League First Division derby against DAVENHAM to maintain their interest in promotion.
The Davenham openers rode their luck but hit the ball well and runs flowed until Dave Ashley tried one big hit too many and was caught for 57.
Andrew Cwiklinski made 52 and the innings closed on 216-7 (Paul Hutchinson 5-40).
Oakmere's knock started in the worst possible way with debutant Jim Ackerley bowled in the first over, but when Ian Eaton joined Yearsley the runs flowed.
Yearsley played imperiously for 109no well supported by Eaton (43) and then Guilford 44no.
Oakmere, 220-2, passed the Davenham score in the 41st over.
Colin Lewis took 5-26 as WEAVERHAM beat Runcorn by one wicket in a low-scoring thriller.
They bowled out their hosts for 122 (Jon Lightfoot 2-22, Kevin Douglas 2-27) and then made it to 127-9, thanks largely to Mark Harris (44). WINSFORD registered a winning draw at Lymm Oughtrington Park.
After making 171-8 dec on the back of Chris Webb (39) and Colin Dean (31) Winsford had Lymm at 99-8, but could not get out the last two. Dave Tierney took 3-11 and Martin Barrett 2-17.
BARNTON'S slim chances of promotion from Division Two disappeared in defeat at Pott Shrigley, who were restricted to 180ao. But from that hopeful position Barnton fell away to 155ao.
