IT was another winning weekend for Oulton Park Cricket Club as the first and second teams both picked up wins over their Hyde counterparts.

The firsts were victorious on the road while the seconds won through at their Pinfold Lane home ground.

After losing the toss and being asked to field first, restricting Hyde looked like a tall order for the firsts on what appeared to be a good wicket.

The outstanding opening partnership of Ben Gibbon and George Newton, however, had other ideas as they ran through the hosts' batting line-up.

They were reduced to 32-7 until a steely partnership between James Chew (42) and Cole Turner (47 not out) steadied the ship.

Once James Plant had dismissed Chew, however, the innings quickly ended with the hosts dismissed for 131.

The hostile Gibbon ended up with six wickets from his 17 overs while Newton was consistent in returning 2-37.

In reply, opener Michael Robinson smashed 54 from just 52 deliveries to set the platform for Oulton Park before a classy 41 from Rob Sehmi took them within touching distance of victory.

Danny Leech then hit the winning runs as he finished unbeaten on 37, with his side wrapping up an eight-wicket win.

The seconds were also asked to bowl first after losing the toss and while Jonny Litler and Damian Barton had little reward for a good opening spell, the introduction of Matthew Worsdale got the hosts among the wickets.

He and Owen Williamson ended with two wickets each but it was Matt Dufty who stood out with 4-25 as Hyde closed on 172-9.

Litler and Andy Mills got the Oulton Park chase off to a solid start before a mini-collapse left them 58-4.

However, a partnership of 76 between Williamson and Mark Latham steading the ship, with the pair eventually falling in quick succession for 42 and 41 respectively.

Worsdale and Dufty eventually saw them home to a three-wicket victory.

The firsts host Oxton on Saturday while the seconds visit Bowdon.
