VICTORIES are proving to be like buses for Chirk as Andrew Swarbrick's men made it back-to-back Shropshire League Division Two successes.

Having waiting 21 months for a win, Chirk followed up last weekend's 128-run success over Welshpool with an eight-wicket triumph against Worfield Seconds.

Chirk did the damage with the ball after inviting Worfield to bat first, the visitors dismissing their hosts for just 107 inside 35 overs.

Captain Swarbrick led from the front with 3-35, while Billy Swarbrick (2-8) and Nick Flack (2-15) were also in the wickets.

That bowling performance allowed Chirk the platform to chase down the victory target inside 18 overs, opener Gareth Partridge the star with a 54-ball unbeaten 71, which included 13 fours.

James Carter followed up his impressive showing last week with 26 as Chirk climbed up to second in the table.

Northop Hall came crashing back down to earth in Division One of the Liverpool Competition.

Having secured league and cup victories over Prestatyn in recent weeks, Hall were beaten by three wickets at Birkenhead Park.

Hall captain Michael Barnes hit 34 after he won the toss and elected to bat, but the rest of his team faltered as the visitors were bundled out for just 90, Ahmad Safi Abdullah (5-12) and Chris Foran (4-30) causing havoc with the ball.

That total was almost enough as Enamul Haque and James Hurlin both picked up 3-28, but Khalid Wabi struck 23 not out to see his side across the line.

Hall Seconds were eight-wicket winners at home to Caldy Seconds. Jeevan Kurukkal (5-29) and Daniel Haynes (3-29) combined to bowl Caldy out for 115, before Matthew Dunning (51) and Jack Allen (41) eased Hall to 116 for two.
