We only have ourselves to blame, says Tammam

Ray Tammam says his Manchester Maccabi side only have themselves to blame after collapsing to a seven-run defeat in their final game of the season.

Having dismissed Wilmslow for a paltry 63, Maccabi could muster just 56 in reply as their challenge faltered at the death in the Greater Manchester Amateur League.

Not even a stellar bowling performance from Steve Allweis, who took four wickets, could save Maccabi’s blushes as they slumped to another painful defeat.

"It was the last game of the season and so I was happy to move the batting order around,” said Tammam.

“But after bowling so well, we still had more than enough time and ability to win this game.

“While a couple of pieces of bad luck affected us, we only have ourselves to blame and should have taken the points for this one."

Allweis and Adam Goldstone took early wickets to reduce Wilmslow to 23-6 before Mike Hardings’ 21 steadied the ship for the hosts.

Chasing such a low total, Tammam elected to switch the batting order around but it failed to have the desired effect.

Allweis hit 19 as Maccabi edged towards their target but an unfortunate run-out and a succession of wickets ultimately killed off their hopes.
