Ashley Academy start CCCL season with heavy defeat at Upton
After 2 seasons in the Cheshire Cricket Alliance the Ashley 3As played their first match in the Vivio Cheshire County Cricket League Saturday 3rd XI Division 2 on Saturday and were heavily beaten by an experienced Upton side.
Batting first on hard but slightly green surface Ferris and Brewster played steadily until the latter missed a striaght one from the SLA of Scragg. Ferris was dismissed by one that kept low off debutant Shah, who went on to record his best figures of 7/29, he bowled a mix of seam up, cutters and leggies. Thereafter only Morfitt, who looked assured from the first delivery he faced, and Cavanah reached double figures
With the ball Ashley toiled but steady batting saw the home side bring up the winning boundary in the 34th over.
