Wood Lane’s Jamie Jervis was a close second hitting 623 runs at an average of 41.
Longton & Staffordshire Minor Counties seamer Craig Barker finished top of the bowler’s equivalent with 77 wickets at an average of 11 with Asad Ali of Wood Lane just behind with 75 dismissals.
It’s relegation though for Cheadle.CC and Little Stoke.CC after the pair finished in the bottom two of the league.
It will be Elworth.CC and Whitmore.CC who will make the move into the top flight after finishing 1st and 2nd respectively in Division One of North Staff & South Cheshire league.
Elworth lost just two matches all season to go up to the premier league as champions, 48 points ahead of Whitmore.
Longton.CC were triumphant in the league’s Twenty20 cup competition after a nail-biting 4-run victory over Knypersley CC in the final.
It was also a dramatic final in the league’s Tablot Cup final, after Cheadle.CC needed a golden over to defeat Whitmore.
With both sides scoring 157, Whitmore could only reach 5-2 In their over and Cheadle hit 8-0 in 5 balls to take the cup.
