KINGSLEY are back in the winning groove.

A first Division One win in four outings came at the expense of derby rivals Barnton on Saturday.

Lower-order batsman Travis Martin top scored with 34, with skipper Ben Stoddart (30) and Danny Mullins (31) also instrumental in setting a target of 189.

Paul Coot (4-32), Matthew Appleton (3-26) and Corey Devanny (3-51) claimed the wickets.

Barnton's chase ended on 81, with Devanny (15) and Pat Flanagan (15) making the most runs.

Austin Smith (4-44) was destructive with the ball for the fourth-placed visitors, while Martin, Stoddart and Adrian Burden each bagged two wickets.

Captain Craig Phelan smashed 96 from 127 balls to steer Oakmere to 180-7 at home to Stockport Trinity, who clinched a draw with 143-8 in their 45 overs.

Phelan fell four runs short of his ton as one of six victims to the bowling of Zohaib Khan.

In reply, Nick Guest and Adrian Stubbs each scalped three batsmen as Oakmere leapt above Trinity into sixth spot.

A half century from Kevin Douglas and 25 from Rob Dickinson could not help lowly Weaverham at Cheadle Hulme, who closed down the 122 total for the loss of three wickets inside 16 overs.

Jake Lightfoot clean-bowled Nauman Akram, whose 94 in 49 runs had already ensured Cheadle's success.

Winnington Park drew at Middlewich in Division Two.

Martin Evans (52) and Phil Amatiello (35no) were the mainstays for Winnington as they assembled 143-7.

With the ball James Prime (3-16) and Phil Parry (2-17) proved the most troublesome.

Middlewich, in response, got over the setback of losing Prime with only three runs on the board.

He was one of four to fall to a catch or stumping at the hands of Park captain and wicket keeper Alec Butcher.

Skipper Nick Gill (35no) was Middlewich's leading batsman, while Sam Barnes (3-30) and Jonny Wales (2-26) had the most success with the ball for the visitors.

Winsford skittled a stunned Wistaston Village for 81 in Division Four and moved off bottom spot in the process.

Craig Webb (3-23), Andrew Etchells (2-11) and Colin Dean (2-8) ripped up a third-placed Wistaston outfit that were 15-3 at one point.

Wicket keeper David Potts (53) led the way with the bat for Winsford, while Steven Burgess concluded his time at the crease on 19no as the visitors finished off only their third win of the campaign – which was their first on the road.
