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 …

A final-ball six condemned Disley to defeat in their 1stXI Twenty20 Cup fixture at Woodford, the hosts scrambling the nine runs required from the final two deliveries to knock the Rams out in the Round of 16. The 1stXI paid dearly for a few lax periods, in particular the close of their innings where they …

The turn of the season mirrored the opening day as the second half of fixtures were ushered in with a pair of wins for the Saturday sides. The leading individual display came from overseas Josh Henry whose fine form continued with an unbeaten 97* for the 1stXI at the DASC. Jake Reynolds’ men again relied on 28 overs …

The halfway point of the 2017 season was reached with a pair of nailbiting games that went right down to the wire, the 1stXI coming up just short against Runcorn whilst the 2ndXI won out to remain unbeaten. At the DASC the 1stXI entertained league-leaders Runcorn as both sides left everything on the field in …

Both senior sides climbed into the promotion places with a pair of maximum point wins in week 10 to set up the business end of the season. The highlight being the first overseas century in Disley history. It was one-way traffic at Broomsedge as the 1stXI were inserted by Barnton under leaden skies but responded …

What a difference a week makes as a Cheshire heatwave had Disley players reaching for the factor 50 as the senior sides returned the same number of points from their Saturday’s toil. At the DASC the 1stXI made light work of basement side Middlewich, whilst the 2ndXI remain unbeaten with a similar dismantling of Wilmslow …

Disley v Haslington

Disley endured a frustrating week as the rains swept the county. The 1stXI escaped for long enough to complete the first innings of their top of the table clash at Haslington whilst the 2ndXI never stepped foot on a sodden DASC. The long trip to South Cheshire saw the Rams return to the scene of …

Disley’s promising start to the season continued with a pair of derby wins sealed with nervy run chases against Stockport Georgians and Poynton. Both sides now sit second in their respective league tables and will be hoping their best cricket is still ahead of them in 2017. At the DASC the 1stXI came off best …
