CHAMPIONS Prestwich go into the final game of the season at runners-up Glossop on Saturday looking to prove they are the best team ever to have played in the Lancashire County League.

The Heys Road men top Division One with a record-equalling 102 points from their 23 games and, with only one defeat all season to third-placed Denton West, Andy Bradley's side head into the top-of-the-table clash needing just one point for the all-time record.

"We want to go the whole season having only being beaten once but most of all we want that points record," said the skipper.

"A point of any kind will statistically confirm that we are the best team to have played in the league.

"We've equalled the highest-ever points total by a team in the Lancashire County League, whether that be a 13,14 or 15-team league, so obviously we are looking to break that record on Saturday."

While not playing at their best, champions Prestwich still managed to beat fifth-placed Dukinfield by six wickets at Higher King Street on Saturday.

Chris Marrow top-scored with 69 and Lewis Riley also hit 49 as the hosts totalled 196.

There was another record-breaking fielding performance from Prestwich with Wilf Reeve notching up his 50th wicket in a 3-35 haul and Bradley also taking 4-37.

Tom Gibson took his 100th catch for the Heys men while wicketkeeper James Wharmby dismissed his 150th victim and also claimed his tenth stumping of the season.

Ryan Stanbury (59), professional Martin Walters (42) and Sam Holden (58) made light work of the reply as Prestwich reached the target for the loss of just four wickets.

Dukinfield professional Marty Kain did the damage with the ball taking 3-47.

"We weren't really at our best in the first half, probably because we've already won it.

"We didn't take a wicket in the first 25 overs but took all 10 wickets in the second half of their innings to bowl them out.

"Wilf Reeve bowled well and Ryan Stanbury deserved more than his two wickets.

"Stanbury just went for it with the bat. He hit one enormous six. He just hits the ball so far.

"Just like we've done all season we scored six and a half runs an over and won with plenty to spare."
