ELLESMERE Port got lucky after their game at Styal was cancelled, as the rest of the Saturday’s league fixtures were off too due to the poor weather.
The cancellations across Division Two of the Cheshire Alliance ensured Port’s recent steady progress up the table was not undone.
This Saturday, they play at Haslington, who sit just one place below Gareth Boys’ men in the table.

Sandbach scored 165-4 with R Pickers blasting 95no.
In reply, Port reached 166-2 with James Gatrell scoring 62no and Craig Rawson 65no.
At CAPENHURST, the home side beat basement club Knutsford 2nds by four wickets. Knutsford scored 81ao (A Walkling 4-31, C Colclough 3-24). After tea, Cape knocked out 83-6 to widen the gap between themselves and the bottom two.
