A Nantwich cricketer is celebrating after smashing a century for Cheshire in the Minor Counties Championship Final.

Jonny Kettle, the regular opener for Nantwich CC at Whitehouse Lane, helped Cheshire take command against Cambridgeshire.

His fantastic knock of 120 not out from just 144 balls saw Cheshire lead at Wisbech before rain stopped play yesterday (September 10)

The Crewe-born wicket keeper, who has been a stalwart for Nantwich for a number of seasons, and made a number of appearances at county level over the past three seasons.

And his performance also earned Kettle a mention on Sky Sports News!

Cheshire are currently 239-2 in their second innings, a lead of 315, as they go into the last day today.

Cheshire made it through to the Championship final by winning the Minor Counties Western Division without defeat, finishing on 123 points.

Cambridgeshire won the Eastern Division with just one defeat in six matches.
