Ramsbottom 3XI welcomed Enfield 3XI to Acre Bottom Enfield won the toss and elected to bat and were soon in trouble as a mix up in the middle saw Captain Garratty run out for 4 with the scoreboard on 12. Enfield recovered to 32-1 but an outstanding spell of bowling from Owen Collinge left the visitors 35-6 removing Demaine,Both Basharats & Clark to return figures of 4 wickets for just 9 runs. The Enfield innings never recovered and with Jake Walker & Ben Wilkinson taking 2 wickets each and one for young gun Tom Ireland the innings closed on 88. Ramsbottom begin their innings with Ben Wilkinson punishing some early wayward bowling and the low total looked a formality until the opening bowling pair of Basharat & Demaine found the right areas to remove Ramsbottoms top 4 for 39 runs , Ben Wilkinson top scoring with 23 ( 3 fours ). With the game in the balance Jake Walker 29* ( 5 fours ) showed great maturity and patience to chip away at the total and hit the winning runs to give the Rams 12 points, ably assisted by Ryan Storey 12 ( 2 fours ) and Toby Ashworth 8*.
