Accrington Cricket Club

Accrington 151-8, Church 150-7
Sunday 20th August 2000

Accrington's stand in professional Tama Canning, who replaces Nathan Astle for the remainder of the season, hit 88 not out in his new club's 2 wicket win over Church. Mark Aspin hit 37 and Tom O'Neill 30, including 20 off Canning's final over, in the visitors 150 - 7, but the New Zealand A star from Western Australia, had the last laugh after Mike Watkinson picked up 3 - 51 and O'Neill and Aspin 2 wickets each to have Accrington struggling. Steve Birtwistle steadied the ship with 20 before falling to O'Neill. Scorecard
