With the return of April showers only one Rams fixture survived the weather in week two of the season as the 2ndXI made the short trip to Macclesfield. A much changed side again amassed maximum batting points but for the second week in a row had to settle for a winning draw. Stand-in skipper Ian …

A pair of draws opened the 2018 UKFast Cheshire Cricket League season for the Disley Saturday sides as a welcome heatwave across the county allowed grounds to recover from a wet winter. Some fine individual displays promised much for the season ahead but sadly couldn’t return the wins that would’ve made for an ideal start. …

Disley signed off for 2017 with an early-morning trek to champions elect Runcorn for a dead rubber fixture beyond the handful of points required by the hosts to confirm an inevitable league title. They did so with ease and eventually won a match that seemed beyond them as a light-hearted atmosphere contributed to a Rams …

A second century of the season from Australian Josh Henry was the individual highlight of a weekend with remarkable games for both senior sides. In a batsman’s paradise at Middlewich the 1stXI produced a level-score draw in a game with over 500 runs whilst at the DASC an inspired bowling performance from the 2ndXI dismissed …

Improved weather allowed for a full schedule of games as the 1stXI returned to action by claiming 25pts from a must-win encounter with Haslington to extend their slim promotion chances for another week. The 2ndXI also recorded an overdue win, flexing their batting muscle by racking up 250-6 on the back of Stew Reynolds’ 92. …

For the first time in 2017 both Saturday sides suffered defeat, potentially signalling the end of their respective promotion challenges. At Hale Barns the 1stXI were resoundingly beaten by the hosts as the Rams paid for their poor fielding whilst at the DASC the 2ndXI were skittled by visiting Didsbury. At Brooks Drive a 1stXI …

For the second week in succession, Disley 1stXI exacted revenge for one of their three league defeats thus far as they avoided a banana skin at Port Sunlight. Heavy showers and leaking covers made life tough for all batsmen on Leverhulme Field but the Rams emerged victorious from the kind of scrappy encounter that has …

Both Saturday sides survived scares to keep their seasons alive for another week. The 1stXI did their best to botch a simple run chase whilst the 2s were staring defeat in the face before a remarkable turnaround saw them take eight wickets for just six runs. At the DASC all seemed calm as the 1stXI …

Week 13 saw the 2ndXI finally lose their unbeaten record in 2017 and at the worst possible time as they faced league leaders Chelford. The Rams never recovered mentally from a fractious first innings but are at least left with enough time to make up for a potentially fatal slip in their title bid. The …
