Manchester win derby clash

By James Masters, June 17, 2013

Manchester Cricket Club bounced back in style from last week’s defeat by winning the big clash with Salford by eight wickets.

Manchester, who suffered a 110-run loss against Forresters in their previous game, eased past their rivals in the battle of the two Jewish teams.

Huddy Lieberman’s stunning spell of fast bowling ripped through the heart of the Salford batting line-up.

Lieberman took 5-5 with only Elliot Koffman offering any resistance with a resilient innings of 37, while five players were dismissed without scoring.

In reply, Manchester made short work of reaching their target of 61, losing just two wickets on their way.

Captain Steve Glicher and partner Simon Jeffries calmly knocked off the runs in 13 overs to give Manchester a resounding victory.
