WISTASTON Village gained their second consecutive 20-point haul as they demonstrated beyond all doubt that they are at home in Division One.
The team followed up last Saturday's narrow win at Kinglsey with a comfortable six-wicket success over visitors Radbroke Hall at The Brittles on Saturday.
The standard of their comprehensive display will breathe extra confidence into the players, who wobbled on the opening day of their new season in the Alliance's top flight, after gaining promotion last year.
The hosts won the toss and put Radbroke into bat. Tight bowling restricted them to just 89-8 off their 48 overs, with M Price top scoring on 38 not out.
Keith Thornhill was the pick of the Wistaston attack, returning 3-19 off his 12 overs, with excellent support from James Hogben (1-20 off 18 overs). Josh Allwood (2-10) also contributed, as did decisive fielding which included two run-outs and four catches, three of which were held by keeper Chris Jobbins.
In reply, Wistaston lost both openers for 12 runs before Paul Owen (14) and Gareth Barnes (55no) took command. Barnes, who included three towering sixes, looked especially comfortable and, when his team still had it all to do at 51-4, he was on hand to form an undefeated partnership of 42 runs with skipper Neil Townsend (11no) to seal the win. nWistaston's second team also enjoyed a six-wicket win over Radbroke Hall, who collapsed to 64ao due to a devastating spell from Richard Barlow (6-16). Wistaston comfortably reached 65-4, with Tom Barlow hitting 20.
Wistaston's Sunday eleven were all out for 98 as they failed to meet Davenham's challenging target of 151. Their highlight was a last-wicket part-nership of 41 runs between David Powell (24) and skipper Kevin Jobbins (13no). nIn Division One, Bunbury were beaten by seven wickets by visitors Kingsley. The hosts batted first and were bowled out for 101. In reply, Kingsley won with 102-3, with K Ollier 37 and J Elliott unbeaten on 32.
Aston were beaten at Northwich by 123 runs. The home side were bowled out for 183 with M Phillips top-scoring on 74. They were then dismissed for 60.
Sandbach's match at Styal was abandoned without a ball being bowled, as was Audlem's Division Three clash at Capenhurst.
