HEYWOOD gave their Division 3 East survival hopes a shot-in-the-arm with a convincing win at Oldham.
The home side were bundled out for 45 in just 20.1 overs, with James Mills and Lee Grogan turning in impressive spells.
Mills led the way with 6-19 from 10.1 overs and Grogan backed him up at the other end with 2-26.
Then Heywood raced to a four-wicket win from 49 balls, despite losing Jacob Kaye, Grogan, Chris Booth and skipper Steve Evans along the way.
Joey O’Neill and Roger Smethurst made sure there were no further alarms with a fifth-wicket stand of 24.
