Cricket: Whitmore produce sunshine performance to beat Leek
WHITMORE delivered a polished performance to crush Leek by 110 runs.
The newly-promoted side were in the driving seat once Matthew McCall (46), Andrew Wagg (33) and Jonathan McCall (31) had helped them to 162-9 declared. Mark Jones picked up 5-52.
Leek's reply never got off the ground and, at one point, they found themselves 27-8.
Ian Porter's 5-21 inflicted the bulk of the damage and, although Jones struck 26 not out at the tail-end of the innings, the Moorlanders were bowled out for 52.

Matthew Hammersley's six of the best ensured Audley had a comfortable 76-run victory over Barlaston.
Set 171 to win, Barlaston's batsmen proved no match for Hammersley, who took 6-43.
Ejaz Mohammed (27) and John Mosley (16no) restored some semblance of pride with a nine-wicket stand of 35, but their side was dismissed for 94.
Mohammed had been one of the stars with the ball before the interval, claiming 3-43 in Audley's 170-9.
Chris Dyer weighed in with 3-40, but James Rogers and Thomas Perkin made 48 and 33 respectively to enable the home side to amass a challenging total.
Elworth also hit cruise control to see off the challenge of Cheadle.
Half-centuries from Jack Bamford (84) and Matthew Winter (65) formed the backbone of Elworth's 214-9. Scott Harvey took the bowling plaudits, finishing with 6-71.
Openers Craig Smith (40) and Tommy Hodgkinson (32) provided a solid platform for the run chase, but Cheadle's innings subsided to 138.
George Barratt's 4-63 was the difference, allied to two wickets apiece from Scott Edwards and Andy Thurston, to wrap up a 76-run win.
The Reynolds boys were left to fight it out for the man of the match award in Norton's 31-run victory over Longton.
Dave Reynolds top-scored with 61 in Norton's 150-8, despite the best efforts of Jordan Espley (4-34) and Adam Whalley (3-56).
Ian Reynolds' 5-26 was the crucial contribution past-tea as Longton could only muster 119 all out in reply. Gary Ridgway made a defiant 46 not out to keep them in the hunt.
Burslem's home clash with Wood Lane was postponed without a ball being bowled because of the weather.
And the same fate befell the match between Little Stoke and Porthill Park.
