Many positives from a weekend of Cricket!
Looking back there a number of positives for TCC to take from this weekends cricket. There was a 5 wicket haul by TCC Junior Chris Joy in the 2nd XI fixture against New Mills on Saturday. A superb spell of bowling for the TCC Junior! Unfortunately, the Seconds went on to the lose the match.
On Sunday morning the Under 11’s played Broadbottom (pictured above) and played some well organised and tidy cricket. Fantastic to see the two teams enjoying the game which resulted in Tintwistle running out worthy winners.
On Sunday the 2nd XI played Broadbottom in the Hawke Cup and almost pulled off a comeback last seen in The Great Escape. Broady needed 20 odd for the last wicket and played with composure to cross the line and progress to the next round of the Hawke Cup. TCC played well to get back into the game as it looked a lost cause at one stage in Broady’s innings.
On Sunday the 1st XI travelled to Broadbottom in the first round of the Bissenden Cup. Broadbottom elected to bat at home and closed on 249-7, Chris Cheetham-Roberts with 99 and Rick Baron 73 as Pete Higginbottom took 4-34. Tintwistle bowled well in the final quarter of the match to restrict the home side to under 250.
Tintwistle chased the target thanks to Ricky Harris with 81, Kez Davies 65 and Ryan Nixon with 47 in a total of 250-4. What a well constructed innings, composure from Harris, backup from Davies and domination from Nixon. A Superb Team Effort!
This coming weekend both Senior teams face Hadfield.
