Longton 1st XI v Burslem 1st XI - 30th May 2017 taken from the Sentinel.

By

Burslem emerge from the ropes to knockout Longton.

Burslem skipper Kevin Mountford hailed his prize fighters following their remarkable 27-run victory over Longton at the weekend.

On a day when the sporting world had all eyes on the Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko boxing bout, Longton looked to be on their way to leaving Burslem battered and bruised in their Premier Division contest as they reached 161-1 in pursuit of their rivals' 230-6.

However, the boys in the Burslem corner regrouped from being on the ropes to stun the home side thanks to Michael Brown and Christi Viljoen.

It was a left-right combination which floored Longton – slow left-armer Brown and right-arm paceman Viljoen – to leave them all out for 203.

Kev's post match interview.

“We keep fighting, that's what we did last year. And when we smell blood, we keep going.

“We missed a few chances and I thought it wasn't going to be our day. But we never gave up hope and even when they were one down they still needed a lot of runs and we knew if we could get a couple of new batsmen in, we'd have a chance.

“We've got a lot of fighting spirit and have this knack of getting a couple of wickets and leaving teams in trouble.

“Longton are one of the best teams in the league, so to win here gives us great confidence. Two wins out of two is fantastic because we came into the season wanting to compete."
