‘FREE ME’ PLEA FAILS A KINGSMEAD man sentenced to 16 years in prison for attempting to smuggle a £1.7m heroin consignment into the UK has failed to convince appeal judges he was wrongly convicted.

But 48-year-old Stephen Stockall was given four more weeks to come up with new evidence to clear his name at a Court of Appeal hearing on Thursday. Stockall, of Marchford Close, was handed the jail term at Southampton Crown Court in March last year after being found guilty of being involved in illegally importing 13.8kgs of nearpure heroin through Newhaven ferryport in June, 2006. The Class A cache was smuggled from Dieppe, France, in a lorry driven by accomplice Ronnie Rothenburg, formerly of Wallace Street, Northwich. He was also given a 16-year prison sentence.

But man given last chance to overturn drugs conviction By Dave Goodban

The heroin was concealed in a loudspeaker case in the lorry, which was one of a fleet belonging to a firm owned by Stockall. He denied all knowledge. His case reached London’s Court of Appeal last week, but Lord Justice Hooper rejected it. The judge, sitting with Mrs Justice Rafferty and Mr Justice Cranston, dismissed arguments that Stockall did not receive a fair trial because the prosecution never disclosed the full scale of the intelligence it possessed. Stockall’s legal team said cus-

toms officers had gone straight to the drugs haul in the lorry, suggesting they had in-depth prior knowledge of the importation. But at the trial the judge supported the prosecution’s refusal to hand over detailed evidence about the customs operation and Lord Justice Hooper deemed the decision fair. However, in an unusual step, the judge allowed Stockall 28 days to pursue a fresh line of enquiry and produce new evidence that may still clear him. If the evidence does not materialise within that time, the appeal will be formally turned down.

Tory in call for ‘openness’ WEAVER Vale prospective Tory MP Graham Evans has given his backing to new plans to increase openness across local government, Whitehall and Parliament to help rebuild the public’s trust and confidence in politics. Under a national Conservative blueprint councils – including Cheshire West and Chester – will be required to publish online details of all expenditure over a set limit, detailing all payments for goods and services. It would bring one of the biggest

shake-ups to town hall accountability since 1960 when councils were forced to open their meetings to the Press and public. This greater transparency and accountability would help reduce wasteful expenditure, saving taxpayers’ money, it is claimed. Mr Evans also believes there should be greater openness in central government. Under new Conservative plans for a ‘People’s Right to Know’, every single item of central government spending over £25,000 and all

public sector salaries over £150,000 would be published online. Furthermore, all claims made to the Parliamentary Fees Office would be published immediately online. Mr Evans said: “Greater openness, in both local and central government, is vital to help restore the public’s trust and confidence in our political system. “The public should have a right to know how exactly their money is being spent.”

Boss calls time on town centre bar A TROUBLED nightspot in Northwich town centre will remain closed indefinitely after its owner surrendered his licence. Cheshire West and Chester Council licensing bosses were expected to close down Madisons on High Street at a hearing on Friday – at the police’s request. But proprietor John Bates, who recently received an official caution for affray following an incident in which a 55-year-old man was attacked outside the bar, gave up the licence on Thursday. Cheshire Police spokeswoman Shelley Williams said: “Prior to a hearing scheduled for May 22, the Premises Licence for Madisons Bar, Northwich, has been voluntarily surrendered by the operators.” Mr Bates, 41, of Priory Avenue, , Northwich, was unavailable for comment this week. Madisons had been shut since RAOB (Buffs) Club steward Frank Pemberton, of London Road, Northwich, was assaulted in the early hours of Saturday, April 25. After spending almost three weeks in hospital with serious head injuries, Mr Pemberton was released last week. Madisons doorman Mark Igoe, 33, of Milton Grove, Warrington, is charged with two counts of wounding with intent to commit GBH in connection with the incident. He is currently in custody and is scheduled to appear at Chester Crown Court on July 24, when he is expected to enter a plea.

Marathon effort helps charity WINNINGTON warrior Alan Maddock completed a gruelling 12-hour sponsored run around Marbury Country Park to raise money for The Joshua Tree charity. The 47-year-old, who works in the finance section at Weaver Vale Housing Trust’ s Rudheath HQ, covered almost 60 miles during his run – the equivalent of more than two marathons. And in doing so, he raised more than £2,500 for the charity – which is aiming to build a holiday home and support centre in Sandiway for children suffering from life-threatening illnesses. Alan said: “Thanks to everyone who has supported me and helped me to raise so much money for such a good cause. “I’m now definitely planning to hang up my running shoes for a

little while and take a much needed rest from running to recover!” Lynda Hill, who started the foundation with husband David after their son Joshua was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2004, said: “I would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Alan for his amazing efforts and congratulate him for doing so well – it was brilliant.”

Court case Chance to correction meet MP A TRIAL date has been set for a former Cheshire police officer charged with the murder of his fiancée. But Winsford-based PC Martin Forshaw, accused of killing 31-year-old Claire Howarth, has not yet entered a plea, as reported in last week’s Chronicle. Forshaw, 27, was based at Cheshire police HQ on Oakmere Road, Winsford, but resigned after being formally charged. He is currently in custody and will appear at Manchester Crown Court on August 3, when he is expected to enter a formal plea. A provisional trial date has been set for November.

WEAVER Vale MP Mike Hall will hold a series of drop-in surgeries with Mid Cheshire constituents over the coming weeks. Mr Hall will be at Owleywood Club on Barrymore Road, Weaverham, from 6.307pm on Friday, June 12. He will then be available to constituents at the following venues and times on Friday, June 19: Northwich Memorial Hall from 4.45-5.30pm; Emmanuel Evangelical Church, Old Hall Road, Leftwich, from 5.45-6.15pm and Castle Private Club, David Street, from 6.30-7pm. No appointments are needed, and residents will be seen on a first-come first-served basis.

Work to start on roundabout safety project A £25,000 project to improve safety at an accident blackspot in Winsford will begin on Monday. Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC) has decided to launch the scheme at the A54 Weaver roundabout after figures showed there have been 24 collisions resulting in injuries at the location over the last three years. After the work, which will take about a month to complete, the road from the roundabout to Station Road, along Winsford bypass, will be reduced to one lane by hatch markings. On the roundabout itself the road will be split into three lanes opposite The Ark pub and the approach to the High Street arm. All lane markings will be upgraded. CWaC environment executive member Neil Ritchie said: “The aim of the project is to prevent the number of collisions and increase road safety.

School plan discussed WINSFORD Town Council’s planning sub-committee met last night (Tuesday) to discuss plans for an extension to Wharton Junior School, Greville Road, to accommodate infants and nursey children. The plans also includes the creation of outdoor play areas, a games court and two temporary mobile classrooms. Wharton will merge with Leaf Lane Infant School as part of the former Cheshire County Council’s Transforming Learning Communities review. Both sites are being used, but it is hoped Leaf Lane will move into the Greville Road site for the September 2010

By Dave Goodban “Each leg of the five junctions making up the roundabout has been looked at carefully and new road markings should also make this large roundabout safer for drivers.” The roundabout will remain open to traffic during the work, but may be down to one lane in places. Winsford Town and CWaC councillor Charlie Parkinson, of Pentland Close, has long campaigned for safety measures on the A54 Oakmere Road. He praised the new initiative and said the busy junction needed reviewing with plans afoot for the waterfront regeneration and the £10m Learning Zone. “Any improvements are very welcome,” he told the Chronicle. “Winsford Town Council has been saying for a long time something should be done.”

Politician ‘tries to offer good value for money’ MID Cheshire’s Tory MP Stephen O’Brien could be ready to release detailed accounts of his parliamentary expense claims within the next two weeks. While other high-profile MPs have come under fire in the aftermath of the Daily Telegraph investigation into Westminster claims, the Eddisbury MP has stayed out of the headlines. The 52-year-old Conservative MP – whose constituency covers Cuddington,

Stephen O’Brien

Davenham, Moulton, Oakmere and Winsford – says he cannot yet publish details of his charges. But the Shadow Health Minister maintains he will make details available as soon as he receives confirmation that disclosure is not in breach of the law. “As soon as the House of Commons tell us we can go ahead and publish the details Stephen has every intention of doing so,” said the MP’s spokesman, Craig Jackson. “We’re looking at potentially the second week of June.” Mr Jackson said the MP saves taxpayers thousands of pounds a year by not claiming a penny under the ‘communications’ bracket. He added: “Stephen makes sure he tries to offer as good a value for money as possible and keep costs down for the taxpayer.”

in association with

Beating Sunday blues JUSTWilliam The musings of a middle-aged man from Middle England THE other day I ran into an old acquaintance of mine. We got talking, as you do, and he was telling me that he had organised another 60s charity night at Winnington Rec for this coming October. He asked if I would be going along, and as I have been to the last two and thoroughly enjoyed them, I said yes. After we went our separate ways my wife asked me how I came to know him in the first place and I explained that we first met when we both started to play for Church Inn in the Sunday Football League in 1965. Believe it or not that was the year that we were finally allowed to play organised sport on a Sunday, the Lord’s Day Observance Society saw to that. That ban still applied to professional sport, it was 1981 before the first totally legal game took place with supporters paying at the turnstiles. Before then there had been attempts to bypass the law by letting people in free but only on the production of a rather expensive programme! So what did we do on those winter Sundays? Well, to be honest, not much if it was raining. If the weather was OK we lads would organise an impromptu match on Belmont Road playing field. Games would start as fivea-side or so but would end up with any number of lads playing. Games would only end at tea time, when our hunger drove us home. If the weather was bad things could be pretty dire. There was nothing on the telly and the family would all be in the front room huddled around the fire as all the other rooms would be freezing cold (no central heating in those days!). We kids would have to sit and suffer as the adults listened to Billy Cotton’s Band Show or Sing Something Simple. There was some relief when the comedy programme was on, The Navy Lark or Take it From Here, but the only thing we really loved was Pick of the Pops with Alan Freeman. In those days it was one of the few radio programmes that played pop records, we had no Radio One or Radio Caroline then. I hear old people my age go on about the ‘good old days’. Yes, they were at times. But not on a wet winter Sunday afternoon.

Is it time for a major change?

BEFORE casting one’s vote on June 4 people should take a good look at today’s society. Here we are – a country bankrupt both morally and financially. Genuine hard-working people finding themselves out of work for the first time in their lives, families losing their homes and millions struggling on a daily basis to make ends meet. A vote for any of the main three parties just means more of the same. The only party who will halt the inexorable decline in Britain today is the BNP. They would save the country billions by taking us out of the EU. They would reinstate capital punishment along with corporal punishment. The BNP is the only party who says zero tolerance and means it. British jobs for British workers goes without saying. They would repeal the crazy Human Rights Act. They would immediately kick out hate clerics who openly espouse their hatred for Britain and its people, while at the same time live the high-life on our benefit system. Respected Labour MP Frank Field says a new house will have to be built in Britain at the rate of one every six minutes for the next 20 years just to house immigrants. Only the BNP would bring a halt to immigration. Stand up and be counted before it’s too late. Vote BNP on June 4. GEORGE MATHER Lostock Gralam

Little Britain

PLEASE see this as a response to Alan Lowe’s letter (May 13). His visual hatred of the English was clear. Mr Lowe, you say “we fought these wars not to be the ‘Little Englanders’ you want us to be” in your rant againt Nick Griffin’s letter last week. You must understand that Nick Griffin is the leader of the British National Party. Now I know that this will come as a shock to Mr Lowe but apart from the English, this includes the Scots, Welsh and Irish, so your finger wagging over Waterloo wasn’t necessary. I enjoyed your O-Level analysis of European history. DAVE MURPHY BNP Winsford representative

Leave MP alone

REFERRING to your correspondent’s letter on May 13, I would like to say that, although I do not agree with

Not voting will help BNP gain power IT’S a bit rich of Mr Griffin of the BNP (Chronicle May 14) to cite our war heroes in his racist cause.

He is well-known for his belief that these true patriots were fighting on the wrong side during the Second World War. If his like ever came to power, British heroes such as Private Johnson Beharry VC would be removed from Britain. Would Chronicle readers rather have Mr Griffin or Private Beharry as a neighbour? The true facts about the BNP can be found at www.hopenothate.org.uk and I would encourage Chronicle readers to explore Mr Griffins published views on race, Hitler, the Holocaust, repatriation of ethnic minorities, violence against homosexuals and women’s place in society. People can then make up their there own minds whether Mr Griffin’s statement that ‘the BNP hates nobody’ stands up to scrutiny. There is a real danger of these racists gaining power during the European elections. The recent expenses scandal is likely to deter voters from supporting the main parties. Leaving aside that the few elected BNP councillors have been a complete disaster for their communities, may I appeal to readers to vote for somebody, anybody, but the racist BNP. Because of the ridiculous voting system used for these elections, refusing to vote on principle is almost as dangerous as voting for the BNP.

all Mike Hall’s policies, I have always found him to be a very good MP who does follow up his constituents’ needs and complaints and ensures they have copies of the outcomes. He is also visible and vocal in local problems and activities. This must be reflected in his expenses. GRETA FOX Constituent ■ I WAS very pleased when I was moved from Tatton to a new constituency and I find Mike Hall to be an excellent MP. He helped us to get a crossing on Chester Road. It was much-needed and, without him, I don’t think we’d ever have got it.

Good work

I SHOULD like to compliment the Chronicle on its article concerning Mike Hall MP and his obscene expenses for cleaning (May 20). Since Mr Hall seems to have changed his tune on transparency, why does he not reveal how much he pays his wife? It is an issue that he has avoided for many years. Perhaps it would be of interest to ask him, since his constituents and your readers have been stonewalled on this issue for far to long. JOHN S HENRY via email

Euro MP decries ‘milkers’ NORTH WEST Euro MP Chris Davies visited Northwich on Friday to collect signatures calling for all MEPs to be open and honest about the money they claim. Liberal Democrat Mr Davies, who blew the whistle on the abuse of expenses by other Brussels MPs, said he is furious the behaviour of some has tarnished the reputation of all. The North West England MEP said: “I’m proud of the work I do in Brussels. I’m in politics to make a difference for the better, and I get well paid for my efforts. “It sickens me that some MEPs think this is not enough and want to milk the system.” Mr Davies last month claimed fellow North West MEP Den Dover should be thrown out of the Conservative Party and jailed after it was revealed he had paid a staff budget of £758,000 to a company owned by his wife and daughter, which bought BMW cars and carried out repairs to his home.

By Dave Goodban Mr Dover has been ordered by the European Parliament to pay back £500,000. Mr Davies told the Chronicle the sums of money claimed by some Euro MPs ‘dwarf’ those of their Westminster counterparts. He said: “I am strongly pro-European, so I am sorry to say that the expenses system in the European Parliament is too self-serving. But from what we have now learned of practices in the House of Commons this may come as no surprise. “Major reforms are being carried out in Brussels, but they still don’t go far enough. “Party leaders must take steps to ensure that voters in Britain are offered candidates pledged to be open and honest about the expenses they receive – it’s the vital first step towards securing radical reform.”

Apathy rules in EC elections

POLLS open on Thursday next week in the biggest trans-national election in history.

Most people would be hard-pressed to name any of the nine Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) representing the North West region. But the sheer scale of the European Parliament, based at Brussels and Strasbourg, cannot be ignored. About 375m people in 27 countries are eligible to vote, as 736 MEPs are elected for a five-year term. Liberal Democrat MEP Chris Davies is encouraging Cheshire Europeans to use their vote and believes the parliament is a vital part of an ever-evolving Europe. He said: “I have been an MP twice before and in the House of Commons you have a choice – either sit in opposition and never win or be in government and do what you are told. “Party politics is about exploiting differences but in the European Parliament we work together to agree what is best for everyone. “When you vote in these elections, you are voting so that more people, who reflect your opinions best, are making these decisions. “We have done an awful lot of

SpecSaverS commitS to even lower priceS In these hard times, many businesses have only just started lowering their prices. Specsavers, however, have been committed to lowering the price of eyecare for 25 years and are still cutting prices wherever they can, whenever they can. They passionately believe that high quality, affordable glasses should be available to everyone, and as the economic situation does not appear to be improving, they are searching for even more ways to make buying glasses better value.

PENTAX standard single vision lenses and many more fashionable, comfortable and durable glasses have been added to the lower price ranges to give customers a greater choice and more for their money.

One clear price

Sometimes buying glasses can give you a nasty surprise, and when you reach the till, you find you’re paying much more than you expect. Not at Specsavers. Their Clear Price policy means that you always know the cost of your glasses – with all frames, lenses and additional options (such as tints or treatments) clearly and sensibly priced. Look for their Clear Price leaflets or ask staff in store for more details.

There are also regular money-saving offers such as Two for One, 30% off for all customers over 60, a half price second pair of glasses for children and 30% off for students – all in all an amazing package for anyone thinking of buying new glasses – ask staff in store for more details.

Lowering prices

Just last year, they dropped their lowest price glasses to just £25, down from £30. They also added a scratch-resistant treatment to the lenses in every pair of glasses, which is worth £12. So in just one year, a pair of glasses that would have cost £42 now costs only £25, a saving of 40%. They have also dropped the price of their standard varifocal lenses from £59 to £49. Contact lens wearers have also benefitted. A month’s supply of daily disposable lenses now start from just £18. And these aren’t sale prices; they are permanent reductions that are available every day. Exam ple of

Specsavers and the NHS - more for your money

Don’t forget, the NHS contributes to the cost of glasses for qualifying UK customers. At Specsavers, if you’re entitled to this support you can have a new pair of standard PENTAX single vision or standard PENTAX bifocal glasses from either the £25 or £45 ranges depending on the level of your entitlement. Or you can put your NHS entitlement towards the cost of other glasses and lenses. Ask in store for more details.

12 MRS LOIS BLOCKLEY

THE funeral has taken place of Lois Blockley, aged 68, of Winsford. A service at St Mary’s Church, Whitegate, conducted by the Rev Lesley Eden, was followed by interment at the churchyard.

Mrs Blockley was the widow of Bob Blockley and dearest mum of Ann, Robert and Alan and grandmother of Jake. She was born at Lower Withington, near Macclesfield, moving to Marton, near Macclesfield, when she was 12. After leaving school she went to work at a paper mill. In 1962, aged 21, she married Robert (Bob) Blockley and they moved to Ridley, near Tarporley, where they farmed 48 acres on a council holding. In 1971 they moved to Marton, near Whitegate, to farm a 164-acre council holding. They later bought some 40 acres in Winsford, put a shed on it for storage and built a farmhouse and in 2000 made it their home and farmed sheep. In 2003 Mr Blockley suddenly passed away and six months later Mrs Blockley was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and then with cancer. Her hobbies included crown green bowling, gardening and painting. She was also a member of Whitegate Ladies Club and Middlewich Farmers Club. She is survived by her daughter Ann, sons Robert and Alan and grandson Jake. Family and many friends attended the service. Floral tributes and donations for St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospital, Cancer Research UK and St Mary’s Church, Whitegate, were gratefully received. Arrangements: Pope Funeral Services, Winsford.

MRS LILIAN GERRARD

THE funeral took place on April 22 of Lilian Gerrard, of Hartford, who died at home on April 3, aged 87.

A service at St John’s Church, Hartford, conducted by the Rev George Agar, was followed by committal at Altrincham Crematorium. Lilian was born in Barnton, one of seven children of John and Amelia Daley, she attended school in Barnton and during the war years worked at the Ordnance Factory in Risley. She married Kenneth Gerrard in 1953 and they opened a coin-op dry cleaners in Hartford. After retiring in 1980 they moved to Weaverham. Sadly, Lilian was widowed in 1996 and returned to live in Hartford soon after and was an active member of St John’s Parish and the Women’s Fellowship. She enjoyed travelling, especially to Spain, Jersey and South Africa to visit family. She is survived by her stepdaughter Marcia and grandchildren Matthew and Rachael. Floral tributes, sympathy cards and donations (Northwich Stroke Club) were gratefully received. Arrangements: Nagle Brothers of Acton Bridge.

Five people were arrested and 12 Trading Standards offences were identified, which are now being investigated. Neighbourhood policing teams throughout Cheshire were also out and about giving residents advice to stop them falling victim to rogue traders.

David says: “There is such a wide and diverse array of entertainment and education, it’s wonderful. I do get sick of people taking this country’s agricultural heritage for granted. Some people don’t understand how important farmers are. “When I was a kid in London you would go past the butchers and see the meat hanging up in the window. Youngsters understood where their food came from. “The Cheshire Show is a

chance for people to look at the history and the future of their food and that’s very good news.” David adds that although he believes Cheshire produce is amongst the finest in the county, he thinks there are still a wide variety of relatively untapped opportunities. “A lot of our countryside is overrun by rabbits and squirrels,” he said. “I tasted squirrel at the last show and it was fantastic. “Whatever you choose to eat or see at the show, the most important thing is to come along and see for yourself how your meat, milk and cheese is produced by our unsung heroes. I’ll see you there.”

Thousands expected at ‘best’ event ORGANISERS have pledged this year’s show will be bigger and better than ever. Thousands of local farmers and producers will be exhibiting at the show’s renowned Agri-centre and promise to take visitors on a hands-on food journey. In the main ring, there will be displays from the RAF Falcon parachute team, acclaimed quad biker Jason Smyth and his Adrenaline Tour as well as stunning falconry displays.

Det Sgt Tony Jones, of Winsford Neighbourhood Policing Unit, said: “The woman was shot in the leg and injured, but if they’d have shot her in the face the consequences could have been drastic.” ■ Witnesses or anyone with information is asked to call DS Jones on 01244 612594.

Guests will be able to savour cocktails and canapés to the sounds of steel band music before a presentation by Cheshire investment guru Debbie Powell. The globe-trotting property investment specialist will explain why rock-bottom interest rates, combined with a recessiongripped economy, are causing savvy investors to look at long-haul luxury locations for a decent return on their money. The 36-year-old managing director of Chester-based Investment Frontiers will introduce guests to the investment opportunities available on paradise islands such as Barbados and St Lucia. “You don’t have to have tens of thousands of pounds in the bank to invest in these opportunities,” said Debbie. “The beauty of the Caribbean as an investment location is that property values are continuing to rise despite the economic conditions that have almost brought domestic activity to a standstill.” ■ To secure an invitation to the Midsummer Madness event on Thursday, June 25 call Debbie on 01244 323 555.

makes its predecessor, the Getz look positively old fashioned. Air conditioning and a host of other creature comforts are included and my car featured what many younger drivers demand a USB and I-Pod socket. Also available is a 1.4 petrol and two turbo-diesels of 75PS and 90PS power outputs. And of course there is the benefit of Hyundai's five-year, unlimited mileage, manufacturer backed warranty and a 10-year anti-perforation warranty. I once felt sorry for Hyundai with its lacklustre cheap and cheerful Pony. Now I feel sorry for Hyundai's competitors.

Club manager Dave Thomas said: “As you know, Northwich Vics FC has gone into administration for the second time in five years and because of the credit crunch there is not the amount of sponsors around that there once was. “Everyday we are asked by supporters ‘how can we help?’ Well they can by joining our Golden Bond Lottery. “For a pound a week you can help restore the club to its former glory as well as being in with a chance of winning thousands of pounds every week.” To join Vics’ Golden Bond Lottery call 01606 815200 and ask for Dave or Roni.

Almond leads the way

Vics steer clear of order

FOOTBALL: A London High Court judge has thrown out an application to have Northwich Vics compulsorily wound up. The bid against Northwich Victoria Football Club (2004) Ltd was dismissed because of owner Jim Rushe’s decision to put the club into administration on Friday. The hearing, brought by Revenue and Customs, lasted a matter of seconds. “It was dismissed because of the fact we’re now in administration,” said Rushe. “It was nothing to worry about. “Things with the administrators are going well, they’re getting through everything pretty quickly.”

Oakmere rue missed chances in loss

CRUCIAL TIME: Oakmere captain Ian Eaton

A WEEK after winning their first game of the season Oakmere were rolled over by table toppers Middlewich in the Cheshire County League on Saturday. Oakmere, who remain rooted at the wrong end of the table, were all out for 121. Paul Guildford enjoyed another good week at the crease hitting 44 in a low-scoring affair. Middlewich made it six wins out of six hitting 122-6. Captain James Cornford made 63 not out after the Middlewich mid-order were troubled by

Craig Phelan’s bowling who claimed 3-14 off just 12 deliveries. Middlewich (20 pts) beat Oakmere (5 pts) by four wickets. Captain Ian Eaton said: “It was disappointing but I thought we competed quite well. We had a few missed chances with dropped balls. “Our next four games are critical, we are playing sides who we would hope to compete against, starting with Stockport Georgians this weekend.” Oakmere travel to Stockport

Georgians on Saturday (1pm). Oulton Park posted one of the lowest totals in the ECB Premier League hitting just 50 at Bowdon and losing by nine wickets. A week after making 303-4 against Oxton, Park were stung by Lancashire paceman Steve Cheetham who took 6-12 for table topping Bowdon. The start was delayed by more than an hour because of concerns over a large damp patch at one end of the pitch. On Saturday Oulton Park host Nantwich (12.30pm).

BRAGGING rights were won by Northwich as they thrashed rivals Winnington Park in the clubs’ first meeting for 13 years.

Northwich declared at 200-6 after Martyn East hit a fabulous 84 and Matt Jamieson hit 61 on Saturday. Bowler Scott Hayes took an impressive 6-23 in difficult conditions and Stuart Hayes 3-1 as a demoralised Winnington Park went for just 36. Captain John O’Sullivan said: “We had a good opening partnership and everyone else followed suit. I thought we played very well. “It’s local bragging rights and it was even sweeter because Winnington have been so far ahead of us for a few years.” Davenham travelled to Malpas in the Meller Braggins Divison One chasing their first victory of the season but left empty handed again. After winning the toss the away side chose to bowl first but saw Malpas hit 191-8 with Keith Ricket making 71. A down-trodden Davenham could muster only 141 all out with Loveridge putting the best batting performance with a lowly 26 runs. Stormy weather left Barnton on rocky ground as they went down to Runcorn 138-8 in Division Two. A steady start from Mike Cross and Paul Coot took Barnton to 30. Richard Watkins battled hard on the weather beaten wicket to make 18 and Cross made 24. Ben Wingfield brought some stability to the innings before he was caught for 26 and Barnton totalled 132 all out. Barnton’s bowlers made a strong start taking three quick wickets but a partnership of 60 saw Runcorn steady the ship and take victory. Weaverham bounced back from defeat

he was in sixth position and closing. A mini battle developed and on the last lap Connor, who was now vying for fourth place with two rivals, came together with Tom Hayward causing them to crash out in the gravel trap. Connor’s mum Julie said: “Luckily no one was hurt, and the crash was accepted by both riders as a racing incident. There’s a long way to go but

Connor feels very optimistic about the rest of the season.” Connor now lies in sixth position in the series and can look forward to next week’s round-four event at Thruxton.

Kate, of Sandiway, said: “I am usually a good putter but in the tournament the week before the county championship I had a rubbish second round and my putting was not great. “Putting is a confidence thing. Once you hole a few it helps and while I would not say I expected them to go in – because then you can feel let down – I did get to the stage where I became disappointed if I missed one. “My putting was on song during the championship.” Kate, who has a handicap of one, has been playing the sport

MURPHY AIMS FOR TOP SPOT

THREE new faces will be Football hoping to guide Winsford By Paul Mannion United to the top of the Vodkat Premier League willing to come. I want the best that is available to me.” next season. Familiar face Terry Murphy will be joined by two assistant managers, Mike Alcock and a third, mystery man, who will look to bring in some “exciting” young players to the Barton Stadium. Manager Terry Murphy said: “I don’t just want to be one of the runners, I want to be at the top. I need to win and I want players that want to win too. “I have spoken to a lot of my old lads and there are players

Murphy, who has managed Northwich Victoria, Middlewich Town, Witton Albion, Barnton and now Winsford United, understandably has extensive knowledge of Mid Cheshire football and amassed an unrivalled trophy haul. Club secretary Bob Astles said: “Terry is very well known at this level and is someone who knows the league and the players. That is why we chose him.

FAMILIAR FACE: Terry Murphy. “There was another option but we are now looking to combine the two and have another assistant manager as well as Mike Alcock. This other person will hopefully be bringing with him some

young, exciting players. “We need a change of direction and we want more development. These players have got ability, they made it to the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup, we want people that aren’t just coming for the money. “We are all looking forward to the new season. “He has promised to bring in the best of the local players and the team will be a blend of youth and experience,” said Bob Astles. “We are optimistic the club can begin the climb back to where we really belong.” The duo of Murphy and Alcock guided Middlewich

Town to three Cheshire League titles and the treble in 2007 during a seven year spell in which the club never failed to finish outside of the top two. It is thought the majority of out-going manager Joe Gibiliru’s squad will leave the Barton Stadium, as the club, who escaped relegation this season, look for a complete overhaul. Chairman Mark Loveless said: “Terry will be starting from scratch. That won’t be easy and the supporters will have to be patient, particularly as he will be working with a very small budget by our standards.”

NORTHWICH Rowing Club celebrated their spring regatta’s 125th anniversary in style with an impressive total of nine victories on the River Weaver. The host club, which was bathed in glorious sunshine on Bank Holiday Monday, invited more than 200 crews from across the country to their prestigious event which was also attended by the town’s mayor Helen Burder. Club spokeswoman Rachel Hooper told the Chronicle that the day had been yet another success and caught the imagination of local residents. She said: “We had nine victories in total which was great and we were blessed with good weather. It was a very busy day for everyone and there was a great atmosphere. “A bonus for the club was that there were a lot of people that came down from Kingsmead to see what was happening. “There was also a lot of people doing the learn-to-row course which is now breathing new life into the club which is great.” The nine winning crews from Northwich RC were: ● Womens intermediate eight – Elaine Young, Marnie Wakefield, Alison Read, Clare Briegal, Carole Riddell, Nicole Watts, Karen Airey, Nadia Ankrah and cox Jonty Moore. ● Veterans C double – Simon Croutchley, Geoff Sims. ● Junior intermediate double – Alex Riddell, Max Andrews. ● Junior 14 single – Michael Galvin. ● Junior 15 girls double – Rebecca Jones, Chloe Weston. ● Junior 14 girls double – Harriet Beesley, Elise Parks. ● Women’s Vet Four – Clare Briegal, Carolyn MacRitchie, Carole Riddell, Nicola Watts and cox Karen Airey. ● Women’s intermediate quad – Melanie Wakefield, Rhian Wynne, Mary Hunt, Jane Edwards. ● Mixed novice double – Becky Jones, John Kirwell. Hooper added: “At the end of the day an individual eight challenge was held between ourselves at the Grange and it was a really exciting finish to a great day in the sun. People were cheering on the banks with excitement.” Up next for Northwich RC is the National Vets Regatta at Nottingham on June 6/7. ■ More pictures from the 125th Anniversary Regatta were captured by our Chronicle photographer Victoria Tetley.

Vale Royal duo are real sultans of swing

HOLE LOT OF GLORY: Ian Brandon and Gordon Livingston of Vale Royal Abbey GC won in Egypt.

AN ACE pairing from Mid Cheshire have driven their way to international glory by the shores of the Red Sea. Gordon Livingston and Ian Brandon, of Vale Royal Abbey Golf Club in Whitegate, lifted the Men’s Matchplay Championship in Egypt after outscoring seven rival pairs. In the grand final of the showcase three-day event at the Marriott Taba Heights Resort, in South Sinai, screened live on Sky Sports, the delighted duo took the title by a nine-point margin. Livingston said: “To win is incredible and it’s not really sunk in yet. It’s been a fantastic week and

Golf

winning the competition is the icing on the cake. “The course is a difficult test of golf, but one that can be enjoyed by any standard of golfer. The hotel is superb and the weather fairly hot – but we knew that was going to be the case here in Egypt. “It has been a great experience and one that we will never forget.” Brandon added: “We’ll certainly be signing up for next year’s competition as soon as we get back home and would urge others to do the same. That’s certainly the best £20

either of us has ever spent.” The Matchplay Championship, which costs just £20 per person to enter, is one of Europe’s biggest amateur competitions with more than 1,150 teams from the UK & Ireland competing. In total 16 teams from across the UK & Ireland – eight men’s and eight mixed pairs – qualified for the week-long expenses paid trip to play at Taba Heights, on the Red Sea coast.
