Finchy Takes 6 in Opening Day Win!

The first team marched to an opening day win in a rain affected game at Rishton.

Former skipper Jonathan Finch picked up 6-38 with Jonny Russell collecting 2-16 as Rishton were restricted to 135-8 in their rain reduced 44 overs. The dangerous looking Rishton Pro Andrea Agathagelou top scored with 34 before being excellently stumped by youngster Joe Martin off the bowling of Finch. Veteran Craig Smith made 33 and Tiarnan Hamill 31.

In reply House lost Finch and Paddy Martin early but Ben Heap continued his form from the friendly games as he top scored with 55 in a 3rd wicket stand of 91 with sub professional Joe Hawke (31) who returned in place of Aaron Heal who has yet to arrive in the UK.
