Wearing blows Chorley away
Last updated at 22:38, Monday, 30 April 2012
SEAMER Daryl Wearing inspired Barrow to their second successive Northern Premier League Division One win with an excellent five-wicket haul at Chorley.
The former club skipper grabbed 5-22 in 17 overs as the Ernest Pass men skittled the home side for just 69 on their way to a five-wicket win at Windsor Park, to lift them to fourth in the table.
Wearing’s efforts were backed up by stand-in professional Travis Townsend (2-30) and in-form spinner Gary Collins (3-17) as Chorley were dismissed in 38.3 overs, after Barrow had won the toss and elected to bowl.
The Barrow batsmen also found the going tough, but 33 from opener Jon Miles and 26 from ex-Millom ace Ryan Brown helped them to victory inside 23 overs.
Unfortunately Barrow seconds’ unbeaten start to the season came to an end as they collapsed at home to Chorley, making just 54 as the visitors won by five wickets.
Only opener Rhys Studt (19) and first-wicket-down Greg Reynolds (12) got a start for Barrow as the visitors made the most of bowler-friendly conditions after winning the toss. Patrick Allington grabbed 3-19 for Barrow but it was not enough to save them.
