1st XI made it 2 wins in a row for the 1st time this season by beating BAC/EE Preston 1st XI. Dale skipper Ainscough won the toss and asked BAC to bat 1st. They struggled to 127-8 off 45 overs, excellent bowling by all of the bowling attack but Curt Morris was the pick with 4-22 off 10. Imran Jangar topped scored for BAC with 26.
Dale took their time over the chase, recovering from losing Curt Morris and Ainscough for single figures. Nazife and Williams ground their way towards the total and then Alex Cuffin saw his team over the line with 25 not out.
2nd XI lost to a strong Chorley 3rd XI. Boosted by news that there could be 4 potential promotion spots in Division5, Dale were asked to bowl first by Chorley. Ross Demming made 95 not out as Chorley posted 183-7 off 45.
Dale struggled with their reply, Imran Paladiwala with a quick fire 30 was the only highlight as they were bowled out for 114.
Sunday XI were awarded their 2nd game in a row after Cherry Tree couldn’t raise a side.
