Blythe have had to re-adjust after losing county seamer Goodwin to Cheadle

Former Blythe CC star Matt Goodwin has been shining for new club Cheadle.

BLYTHE CC travel to Moddershall & Oulton in the North Staffs and South Cheshire League Premier Division today, to hoping to build on last weekend’s double success.
The team put a stop to a disappointing start to the season with a first league victory at home to Stone SP and then won at Wood Lane in the Talbot Cup quarter-finals the following day.
The Cresswell-based club’s four-wicket success against Stone SP eased them out of the drop zone in the top tier.
Blythe have been struggling to settle after losing several key players, most namely Staffordshire county seamer Matt Goodwin, now quickly making a name for himself with rivals Cheadle.
The team also have a new captain, Rob Ginders, who has replaced Peter Finch in the lead role.
Ginders told The Sentinel’s Chris Travers: “We’ve turned a bit of a corner but we haven’t had the rub of the green this season.
“I feel as though we’ve had a settled side for a few weeks and now we can put ourselves in a strong position to get out of trouble,” he added.
Cheadle have an opportunity to close the gap on league leaders Meakins today with a win Whitmore today, as Meakins face a formidale task at home to defending champions Porthill Park.
The gap between Cheadle and Meakins is down to 21 points, after the Potteries side were beaten by Longton last weekend, while The Bassetts enjoyed a thrilling victory against Moorlands rivals Ashcombe Park (who beat Porthill Park the previous week).
Leek travel to Stone SP looking to find some consistency, while Checkley host Longton, who will be on a high after beating Meakins, and Ashcombe Park play host to Hem Heath.
