PHIL'S COMMENTS
Week 18 Mar 10th March has certainly come in like a lion this year and the lions are roaring for the new league champions Radcliffe Cricket Club. Congratulations must go to Phil Dodd and his team after the title was settled by this round of matches and notably the match of the week at Stopes Tavern where the only team that had a slight chance of retaining the title Rose and Crown Starling were playing. Paul Gardeners Tavern team have the habit of starting the season like a lamb and ending it like lions and this match was no different, if they can stop the ten warm up matches early season they could be challengers for the title themselves on this showing. The home team of Paul, Roger Bolt, Tim Green and Harry Bullough started well but still went two points down in the first round when the visiting team of Kieran Goldsbrough, Anne Thompson, Bob Selby and the Legend Wally Warrington, took a full house of eight points and then increased that lead to eight in the first individual round the Taverners hit back in round three to reduce the deficit to just three which remained at the half when both teams settled at four in the stick or twist round. The second half began similar to the first when the visitors again took a full house to increase the lead by two points, this lead to the home team to take risks in the four or two round and the Coronation Street question and the incorrect answer from both teams of Elsie Tanner proved the sticking point for both teams with the Rose taking just one point bonus but the Taverners taking three to take the lead by a single point. Both teams scored seven in the individual when the legend Wally failed to recognise Anne Widdicombe! With both teams scoring a full house in the last round the home team who all played superb, continued there late season surge with an excellent well fought win of 56-55. Team of the week Stopes Tavern. The new League Champions Radcliffe Cricket Club had a local derby visit against the Swan and Railway Aís, with the home Swans having recent success this could have been a challenge but the champions knew a slip could be costly and played superb on the night although it could have been closer when again the home teams Anorak of the week John Heenan knew about the sex life of ďCorriesĒ Emily Bishop but was talked out of the four points by his team mates. But this would have took nothing away from the overwhelming game played by the visitors who took charge early on and scored well in all rounds to win the game and secure the league title by a score of 38-62. Well done the Cricketers. Just pipped for match of the week was the close encounter at the Rose and Crown Ramsbottom who had the Phoenix nightís tour bus from Heap Bridge climbing the hill. With Peter Taylorís team back from a weeks rest this game was predicted to go close and it proved so, but the Phoenix lads are determined to finish season on a high and are fighting for the third place spot. With both teams not prepared to capitulate at all this went down to the wire on every round but the visitors finally took the points to win by just two points 47-49 in an excellent match. Final league game this week was at the SunDial Walmersley road where the Swan and Railway Bís visiting. The Swanís have also got there eye on third spot and with the SunDialís Barney and the girls off form at the moment, (but having a good cup handicap) Alex and his team ran away with the match to keep up there chances at the top. Score 36-57. The friendly cup rehearsal at the Packhorse saw the home side run away with the match also or did the Rose Bury want to lull the Packhorse into a false sense of security as they were overcome by the home side 37-50. 19 Monday March 17th Match of the week for this week out of four matches that could all be contenders, is the game at Heap Bridge Social Club where new champions Radcliffe Cricket Club are the visitors in their final game of the normal season. With the championship secure the visitors may let there guard slip but even if they remain on top form this could be a very close run thing and the home side are fighting for third spot. Even without the championship settled a close home win could have been on the cards. In the game at Swan and Railway the Bís have the league runners up Rose Starling visiting in the Roseís seasons finale. The BíS are also in with a shout of third so the Rose will have to be on there guard. A close game and a draw will not be a surprise but not the result for the home team. PackHorse Affetside have Stopes Tavern as the visitors and fresh from ruining the former champions season, with the Packhorse in prime position for third spot they will not be relishing this challenge and if the late surge continues for the visitors this will be another match to savour, and another draw is a distinct possibility. However, an away win to open up the third spot race is predicted controversially. Final league game is at Rose and Crown Bury who have the Rose Rammy visiting with Ianís team another having third place in their sights, this will be another close encounter as Peter Taylorís visitors seem to be getting back to form. It should be close but a home win by maybe just a point is predicted. Swan Aís and the SunDial are on free weeks. Handicap Cup Draw. (Handicap points in brackets) Preliminary round. April 7 th A.
