NJCL round-up

Manchester Maccabi moved to within five points of top spot after beating Bury & Whitefield by nine wickets.

    Manchester Maccabi moved to within five points of top spot after beating Bury & Whitefield by nine wickets.

    On the hottest day of the year so far, it was home side Bury who really felt the heat as in-form Maccabi, who put them into bat, reaped early rewards.

    Saunders was first to go - well bowled by Adam Goldstone and Shimon Harris managed to steady the ship for the next dozen overs with Stuart Levington but stuggled to score from the accurate bowling of Goldstone, Dan Franks, and ‘Volcanic’ Ash Landes.

    Sadly for Bury a collapse soon began, as Maccabi skipper Ray Tammam brilliantly ran out S. Levington and soon after caught Harris from the bowling of Steven Allweis.

    No Bury players made double figures as young debutant Max Davies grabbed two wickets, as did Franks and Allweis but the home side had only managed to get to 35 all out from 21 overs bowled.

    Maccabi's 18th consecutive victory would extend their incredible record-run and it was never in danger as their 2009 player of the year Simon Jeffries quickly reached an unbeaten 27 as the visitors eased home only losing Doyle to the bowling of Mark Levington to win the game inside seven overs.

    In the next round of league fixtures on Sunday, Maccabi takes on Salford and South plays Leeds.
