CHORLEY MIDWEEK LEAGUE Cyril Nightingale Memorial Trophy Final HASLAMS (134 FOR 8) CHORLEY (49 ALL OUT) HASLAMS outplayed Chorley to take victory in the Chorley Midweek Cricket League's Cyril Nightingale memorial trophy final.

Batting first on what turned out to be a difficult batting wicket, Haslams were restricted by accurate bowling from Nightingale and Mawdesley in the early part of their innings.

The first 18 overs produced only 40 runs for the loss of 3 wickets. Haslams eventually reached 134 for 8 in their allotted 40 overs, thanks mainly to 39 from man of the match Frost, with tail-enders Jarvis and All contributing 21 and 16 respectively.

Mawdesley ended with figures of 5 for 30 for Chorley.

At the tea interval Chorley must really have fancied their chances of lifting the trophy, but the Haslams opening bowlers Ellison and Allen did even better than their Chorley counterparts.

The early Chorley batsmen were restricted to 22 runs in the opening 18 overs.

Chorley never recovered and only two batsmen, Butterworth (17 not out) and Gibson (12) troubled the under worked scorers. Chorley were all out for just 49.
