CHESTER BOUGHTON HALL are now 21 points clear at the halfway point of the Cheshire County League Premier Division season.

Hall captain Rick Moore returned to his old stamping ground at Oulton Park and kick-started his side's recovery, taking 4-22 as he hosts were skittled out for just 111 in reply to 220.

Moore had earlier scored 33 as he put on 79 for the opening partnership alongside Alex Money.

But a familiar mid-order collapse cast doubts on whether Hall put a decent total on the scoreboard.

After Money had disappeared for 66 it was left to number eight bat Jack Williams to again chip in with valuable runs.

He was the last man out for 33 as Tom Hyslop and Andrew Duffy both took five wickets each for Park.

But the hosts reply never got going and Williams made his case for the man of the match by taking 4-29 as Park all out for 111 in the 27th over.

Neston were also out for 111 - and the Premier Division's top run scorer, Will Evans, hit 56 of those - in a nine-wicket annihilation by Timperley, who eased to 112 for one thanks to an unbeaten 78 from Furqan Shafiq.

Neston are now third, eight points behind second-placed Alderley Edge, who were also nine wicket winners against Cheadle, who were bowled out fpr 129.

Charlie Reid landed 4-8 before Calum Rowe blasted 78 in Edge's 132 for one.

Barrow snatched defeat from the claws of victory in Division Two.

Maneesha Nissanka's fabulous spell was rewarded with figures of 4-10 as Mobberley were dismissed for 114.

Mal Barrow and Iroshan De Silva also took two wickets apiece but only Alex Reid, 25, showed any aptitude with the bat as Mobberley bowled them out for just 93.
