Glossop: 94/10 [42.3]

 Glossop 1XI had another weekend to forget as they suffered a second league defeat of the season to Egerton.

 The loss means Glossop, still, have failed to win a league game at home all year and keeps them firmly rooted to the foot of the table.

Bowling first, the home side managed to restrict Egerton to just 154/10 after a strong first half performance.

Mark Usher (0/46) bowled brilliantly for 15 overs and somehow went wicket less, but his opening partner, Stephen Hunt, claimed 2/32.

The spin duo of Chris Tipper (3/43) and Will Hargreaves (4/21) made the biggest impact, though, with the wicket turning considerably after drinks.

It soon became apparent that a chase on the slow track was going to be a tough ask for Glossop, especially having seen the visitors collapse from 109/1.

Mahela Udawatte top scored for Egerton with an impressive knock of 51, whilst a determined 29 from Will Halton was the only other score of note.

Glossop never really looked like reaching their target as they too suffered a disappointing collapse.

Daniel Senior (6) went early on, before Chris Tipper followed shortly after for 20 to leave Glossop 31/2 after 11.

Joe Moss and Lee Dale offered strong resistance to the strong spin attack that Egerton possessed but runs were proving hard to come by.

The former eventually fell for 14, followed by Dale just a few overs later for 17 with Glossop now struggling at 66/4, 32 overs gone.

With the exception of George Dyson (14), Glossop’s middle and lower order struggled as they too fell apart and finished 93/10 with 7 overs unused.

As expected it was the spinners who had done the damage.

Amal Dalugoda (3/27) and Matt Parkinson (3/15) both picked up 3 wickets apiece whilst Will Halton (2/24) and Marcus Pratt (2/5) claimed braces.
