Cannock 2nds vs Highcroft & Great Barr 1sts

Cannock were asked to bat first at home to Highcroft and were soon in trouble after the loss of four early wickets. Mike Chadderton (69) steadied the ship along with captain John Cooke (33) as the pair helped the hosts to a challenging total of 177-7 from their 50 overs.

Dan Wood was the pick of the Cannock bowlers with 5-36 which left the visitors playing for the draw with five overs and one wicket remaining. It was left to captain Cooke to take the final wicket in the penultimate over and secure a much needed victory for the home side.
