Paddock derby battle

Date published: 06 June 2014

CRICKET: TWENTY20 action returns to Lake Garage CLL tonight (6.15pm).

Leading the way is a clash between Royton and Werneth at the Paddock. Royton can virtually book their place in the last eight of the competition with victory, having defeated Ashton in their first South-East group match.

Werneth, on the other hand, went down by a single run to Oldham in their opening game and must win to harbour hopes of progressing.

Oldham host Ashton knowing that victory will leave them in a strong position to book a place in the quarter-finals.

Crompton’s geographical status means the club is annually placed in one of the hardest groups — the North-East section features two CLL powerhouses, Littleborough and Walsden, while Milnrow are also strong.

Crompton will do well to get out of the group. A home match with Walsden represents a big challenge for Simon Wright’s men.
