2021 Incrediball Report - Played 6 Won 0 Lost 5 Abandoned 1. Like most county teams, April 2021 was the first time since August 2019 the team had played a game.
2021 was a steep learning curve for the squad as 5 new squad members were playing their first full season at county level.
The team did themselves proud even though they did not win a game in the league season there was clear progress made as individuals. Most notable was Alex Marsden’s fantastic 45 v Staffordshire in the last game of the season and with some good performances from Alex saw him receive the Super 9’s player off the year.
Next year, will be another season where we will see good progress for the team with 1 or 2 players that have the protentional of progressing into the hardball team.
2021 Hardball Report - Played 6 Won 3 Lost 3. 2021 saw the return of D40 Hardball cricket in Cheshire, with 4 new players playing their first season for Cheshire.
Victories against Derbyshire x 2 and Yorkshire in 1 of 2 t20’s we played against them on the day. We were competitive in every game we played with some very close games going down to the wire and battled well against a strong Lancashire side who we came really close to winning our home game losing by 12 runs thanks to a quick fire 36 from Tom Hewson getting us within reach.
Jack Perry took D40 Player of the year with his 3 x half centuries highest being 76, and his excellent first season as captain.
Alexandra Harrison, took President's player of the year for her excellent all round performances throughout the season.
2022 sets up to be an exciting year for the team who will be looking to continue the momentum and push for promotion to Division 1.
