Atherton claim cricket double
6:00am Sunday 15th September 2013 in Sport
ATHERTON clinched the Bolton and District cricket title to complete a league and cup double with victory over Standish on Saturday.
Needing four points, Atherton were asked to bat and their 192 total secured three bonuses meaning five Standish wickets would see them crowned champions.
Already Cross Cup winners, at 4 for 43 Greg Greenough clung on to a deflected chance at slip as the double celebrations began.
Jamar Griffith took 6 for 74 and James Damjanovski 4 for 40 to skittle Standish for 133.
Atherton’s seconds secured the Isherwood Cup last month and the under 15s have a shot at a trophy against Flixton on Sunday, Higham Park at 1pm.
