Netherfield are just four points behind Division One leaders Longridge after picking up an impressive 69-run victory at Chorley last Saturday.

Shrikant Mundhe's first innings knock of 115 and contributions of 28 by Oli Wileman and 25 from Finlay Richardson posted an imposing total of 206-8, before key contributions from Netherfield’s bowlers saw Chorley all out in their reply for 137 off 44.4 overs.

Netherfield, who won the toss and elected to bat at Chorley's Windsor Park, made a slow start after losing the wickets of Ben Barrow and Richie Forsyth (LBW) with Louis Johnson taking the wicket of Barrow when he was caught by Siddesh Lad.

Chorley continued to apply pressure after Samuel Steeple picked up the wickets of both Josh Dixon and Brad Earl.

However, Mundhe and Richardson steadied Netherfield’s innings with a strong partnership as the field gained control.

Richardson eventually departed for 28 after he fell to Lad, and while Gaurav Dhar dismissed both James Bowman and Isaac Medhurst.
