Chorley Cricket Club still await their opponents in the National Knockout quarter-final stages after the tie between York and Chesterfield once again fell victim to the weather.

The Windsor Park outfit will meet the winners at home on Sunday, August 3.

A bumper crowed is hoped for by all at club after skipper Andrew Holdsworth admitted the spectators played their part in the victory over Bowdon.

Holdsworth, said: “The crowd were excellent against Bowdon and we want to make it even better for the next round.

“They played a huge part for us and it made a difference for us especially when the game got close.”

Chorley defeated Lancaster at the weekend and recorded a much-needed victory in the Northern League.

Seamer Chris Harty took six wickets and professional Mohammed Jamal scored a classy half-century.

Holdsworth added: “The performance was excellent – it was great to follow on the National Knockout form and we showed the same desire as we did last week.”
