Hughes the Difference as Ingleton fall to 29 run defeat

David Hughes' innings of 56 from 105 balls led a young Westgate side to victory in a low scoring game on Powderhouse Lane

One again Ingleton met on a wet Saturday lunchtime in the car park ready to depart to Westgate, where once again the sun shone on a damp field.

Winning the toss the visiting captain invited the hosts to bat.

Things started very well for Ingleton as James Preston coming down the slope brought one back in to bowl Carter with the 3rd ball of the afternoon, with the opener yet to get off the mark, he followed this up in the 5th over to remove Green with the total on 4.

This brought the experienced skipper Hughes to the action and with Conroy the pair dug in to add 12 more to the total before Preston released a beaut to remove Conroy for 5.

With Hughes at the crease guiding the juniors through Westgate were able to reach 25 for 4 at the drinks interval. James Preston bowled consistently well to finish with figures of 4-13 from his 12 over spell, Matthew France at the other end played a supporting role going for 16 off his 9 over spell, despite bowling well he was unable to unlock that bit of luck to get a break through.

Hughes continued to work the gaps picking up the 1s and 2s and reached his half century in 87 balls which included 3 of the 5 boundaries scored all game with the total up to 65 in the 32nd over.

John Hughes finally got a breakthrough diving to his left for a return catch off Islam to open the gates again before bowling Hughes for 56 as the hosts reached 75 for 6.

Birthday Boy Kell bowled Phelan and Frith as Matthew Dawson stood firm to take a catch out of the sun off Hughes to remove Main.

The Innings was wrapped up thanks to the quick thinking and reactions of David Whitfield behind the sticks as he took the ball and removed the bails in a swoop to stump Legg with the total on 80 with the last ball of the 42nd over.


With 48 overs to bat, Ingleton knew it would still be a difficult score to chase down, things were going well for the visitors as the reached 12 runs off 5 overs with no real problems, then Sam Conroy produced a over that swung the game the home sides way, firstly bowling Kellett then 2 balls later saw Hughes return to the pavilion with no score.

14 for 2 soon became 16 for 4 as "Sid" Gani had France caught at the 3rd attempt in mid wicket then bowled Reid with Westgate very much in control.

In the 13th over the score worsened as 2 more wickets fell with Ingleton still needing 54 runs to win as Conroy picked up his 4th victim to finish his spell with 4 for 13.

With all hopes gone in came David Whitfield and Josh Capstick for the 10th wicket, the pair stood strong for 6 overs picking up valuable runs along the way, the pair worked well before Whitty was run out as a result of a direct hit at the non strikers end when pushing for a quick single for 8, Capstick unbeaten on 3. All out 51.

Other results within the league mean Ingleton are now 31 points behind Bare in 2nd place with 3 games to go, next up at Ingleton is 4th v 5th as Shireshead visit on Saturday
