CHESTER BOUGHTON HALL will look to put their T20 Finals Day defeat behind them and march on towards title glory in the Cheshire County League on Saturday.

Thirty points clear at the top of the Premier Division, Rick Moore’s in-form team ran out of steam in Sunday’s four-run defeat to Toft in the League T20 Final at Hyde last weekend.

"We were gutted to lose out in the League's T20 finals," said Moore. "Toft managed the game very well. We still fell just four runs short.

"What really hurts is that we know this doesn't happen that often - we're shocked - and we know we will have made a good job of representing the League in the regional and national stages as we've done before."

So what better game to get their frustrations out of the system than a clash at the side who ended their title hopes last season, Nantwich.

Moore’s 94 in last week’s 110-run win over Cheadle sent him to the top of the highest run scorers in the division. His tally is now 685 - just six more than Neston’s star performer, Will Evans.

Neston did Hall a favour a week ago, holding second-placed Alderley Edge to a draw as both sides finished on 165.

Alderley head to Marple tomorrow while Neston host bottom-of-the-table Grappenhall.

Third-placed Timperley are still in the hunt and a win at home to Widnes will maintain their challenge.

While Hall go for the title in the Premier Division, the club’s second team continue to dominate in their division - best illustrated in their T20 quarter-final win over Neston Seconds.

Andrew Metcalf was the star of the show, smashing a 66-ball 102 in Hall’s 160 for four.

Bob Evans then snapped up 3-26 and Robin Fisher 2-24 as Neston limped to 121 for seven at the end of their 20 overs.

Hall Seconds host Nantwich tomorrow with a 32-point cushion between them and second-placed Oulton Park.

The thirds also reached the Cheshire League T20 Cup semi-finals with a victory at Lindow.

Iroshan De Silva has rediscovered his form with the bat, top scoring in Barrow’s last two victories to lift the side to fourth place in Division Two.

Barrow’s 48-run triumph at Hale Barns saw De Silva hit 61and another win at home to Stockport Georgians will keep their promotion hopes alive.

Georgians beat Alvanley by 69-runs last week and now they face the other Stockport side away, hoping for a much better end result.

Tattenhall are marooned in the bottom two and desperately need a win at home to Mobberley while Christleton’s Arslan Dar could be the man to inspire them to a surprise victory at third-placed Congleton.

In Division Four of the Cheshire League, Westminster Park are two points off top spot heading into Saturday's game at Glazebury.

Saughall head to Trafford Metrovics while in Division Three, Chester County Officers host Cheadle Hulme Ladybridge.
