Warton 1st XI vs Shireshead & Forton 1st XI – 3/8/13

Shireshead & Forton 197 for 8

Warton 151 for 6

Winning draw to Shireshead

Shireshead ground out a winning draw at Warton which did little to boost their title hopes as leaders Arnside won again.

Shireshead posted a challenging 197 for eight thanks to another super innings from Peter Wilson. Wilson (71) continued his good run of form in an 84 ball innings, well supported by Robert Skipworth (36) and Simon Gould (46) in partnerships of 73 and 53 respectively.

In reply all of Warton’s batsmen got in but none went on to make a big score and the innings trundled to 151 for six with J Ralston (38 not out) top scoring. All Shireshead’s bowlers were tidy with Dave Jack (2 for 39) the pick.
