Cricket

LEEK’S new signing Wayne White, pictured, has been named in the Cheshire squad for their opening Unicorns Trophy Knockout Trophy fixture against Shropshire at Oxton this Sunday.

The 31 year old has played first-class cricket for Lancashire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.

White opened the batting for Leek on his debut against Audley in the NSSCL on Saturday.

He celebrated his arrival at Highfield with a half-century. His 50 runs came off 76 balls and included seven boundaries.

Shropshire suffered an eight-wicket defeat at the hands of  Staffordshire in their opening Unicorns Trophy fixture at Shrewsbury last weekend.

Horse racing

BASFORD Green horse racing trainer Jannie Candlish has tasted success in Scotland today.

Stable veteran Beeves ridden by Sean Quinlan won the 3.35 Phil Nelson Handicap Chase at Perth Races.

The ten year old, owned by Paul and Clare Rooney, got up by half a length under Quinlan’s urging to claim the £9,384 race.

The stable’s two other horses who made the 600-mile round trip, Grove Silver and Sleepy Haven, failed to finish in the first three of their respective races.
