THE Cheshire men’s side secured their second win of the 2022 county campaign with a victory over Derbyshire by nine shots on Sunday, writes David O'Brien.

At the home venue of Crosstown BC in Knutsford, Cheshire recorded 10 winners out of the 12 games with Andy Hamman and Tom Vickers leading the way with 21-6 and 21-7 victories.

The away team had lost their leg by 42 shots and with two games on the green at Crosstown Cheshire were 10 shots behind on the overall score but victories for Andy Birtles and Robert Winnington in the last two games overturned Derbyshire’s advantage and saw Cheshire take the game.

Cheshire have finished a respectable second in the group stage but Warwick & Worcester with three victories in the group have progressed to the semi-finals stage.
