Rain came when the thirds were nearly halfway towards their target
The 3rd XI game at home to Blackley was abandoned with Illingworth in a promising position.
Blackley made 112, with wickets being shared among four different bowlers, as well as two sharp run outs from Asif Ali and Bilal Hussain. Illingworth lost three early wickets with only five runs on the board, but some attacking play from Bilal Hussain (30*) saw Illingworth scoring at nearly six an over before the rain came with the score on 50 for 4.
The 3rd XI wrap up their season away at Copley next weekend.
