nantwich beat cheadle - cricket (pic by mr_thomas)

Nantwich CC 1sts are just one win away from a third successive league title after victory over Urmston.

The Dabbers’ remarkable winning streak continued which keeps them top of the tree with one match to go.

Nantwich won the toss and put Urmston in to bat, and they were soon in trouble as Chris Connolly tore through the top order.

He claimed the first three wickets before he was replaced by Ollie Griffiths whose tight line and length earned him one wicket from another marathon bowling session.

Urmston, struggling near the foot of the league, failed to take command.

Jimmy Warrington steamed in to destroy the middle order, claiming thrree wickets all caught behind the wicket by Jonathan Keetle.

Connolly collected his fourth victim and Urmston could only reach 153 for 8 off their 55 overs.

Nantwich opener Chris Simpson was out for four early on in the reply, but Louis Bentley joined Kettle at the wicket and they took the attack apart.

Kettle was out for a solid 40, but Bentley smashed his way to an unbeaten 89.

Ollie Law helped him over the finish line for a comfortable eight-wicket victory.

Nantwich now travel to Toft next Saturday knowing a win in their final game will seal the hat-trick of crowns.
