It's been a while...
This weekend the 1st XI welcome Woodley to Speedwell in the Bissenden Cup. A home tie for Tintwistle in the Derbyshire & Cheshire Cricket League's premier
cup competition is something to behold, like a rare bird you may find in your garden.
To be precise, it's been 1063 days since Tintwistle last competed in a Bissenden game on their home patch. That fixture was against Broadbottom on Sunday 2nd June 2019. It's also not as though we have a habit of exiting the competition in the early rounds. Across the 2018 season (Finalists), 2019 season (beaten in Round 1), 2020 season (Semi-Finalists) & 2021 (Semi-Finalists) we've had two home draws.
• Sat 05 May 2018 (Round 1) - Offerton (Away)
• Sun 03 June 2018 (Round 2) - Broadbottom (Home)
• Sun 24 June 2018 (Quarter Final) - Newton (Away)
• Sun 15 July 2018 (Semi Final) - Woodley (Away)
• Sun 05 August 2018 (Final) - Hawk Green (Hazel Grove)
• Sun 02 June 2019 (Round 1) - Broadbottom (Home)
• Sun 02 August 2020 (Round 1) - Newton (Away)
• Sun 16 August 2020 (Quarter Final) - Birch Vale (Away)
• Sun 30 August 2020 (Semi Final) - Hazel Grove (Away)
• Sun 16 May 2021 (Round 1) - Stalybridge (Away)
• Sat 12 June 2021 (Quarter Final) - New Mills (Away)
• Sat 11 July 2021 (Semi Final) - Dove Holes (Away)
Whilst the clubhouse remains under construction and facilities will be limited, a trip to the Speedwell to support the team will be well worth it. Woodley finished the 2021 season in third place and opened their 2022 account with 20 match winning points against Hayfield. Tintwistle will also be in confident mood after a victory against New Mills last Saturday.
Saturday's fixture also sees the return of TCC's 1st XI Skipper Karl Handforth who will lead the lads out. Get down to Speedwell to support the team.
The 2nd XI travel to New Mills in Round 1 of the Hawke Trophy. Best of luck to both teams in this weekend's cup competitions.
