Double tops for Barrow CC
Last updated at 14:26, Monday, 14 May 2012
THE Ernest Pass clubhouse was a happy place to be on Saturday night as Barrow’s first and second teams went to the top of their respective divisions.
Chris D’Leny’s men knocked Fleetwood off top spot in Division One, while Barrow seconds beat the Fylde coast side’s second string by 17 runs in a low-scoring game, to rise to the summit of the second division.
In-form bowlers Daryl Wearing and Gary Collins were the heroes at Ernest Pass, scything through the Fleetwood batting line-up as Barrow won convincingly to take over pole position.
Seamer Wearing took 3-15 and left arm spinner Collins 4-45 as the visitors – needing to chase down 167 for victory – were bowled out for just 95 in 36.1 overs.
First team debutant George Smith also chipped in with a wicket and stand-in South African professional Werner Coetzee claimed excellent figures of 2-6 in 7.1 overs.
Openers Ryan Brown, with 16, and Jon Miles (19) got Barrow off to a steady start but after they fell and Coetzee went cheaply, it was left to top scorer Liam Livingstone, with 41, and Darren Collin, with 30 not out, to get the innings back on track as Barrow ended on 167-7 for in 50 overs.
It wasn’t a giant total – but thanks to a great effort by the bowling unit, Barrow won by a comfortable 72 runs and are celebrating being top of the tree after six games.
