Carlisle put Cleator to the wicket in premier clash

CARLISLE entertained Cleator who went in first and found runs hard to come by, and were all out for 128. Carlisle pro Saliya Saman took 4 for 24.

After tea Saman again showed his all-round ability with an excellent 68 not out to see the Edensiders home at 129 for 5. Cleator’s Shaheen Khan took 4 for 26.

The league leaders were at Keswick and gained ample revenge for their Higson final defeat. Batting first on the drying pitch, Cockermouth had to work hard for runs, but would be fairly satisfied at tea to have 157 for 7 on the board. In reply, only Joe Grisdale with a battling 40 could handle the Cockermouth attack, and Keswick were dismissed for 95.

Second-place Furness maintained their challenge with a comprehensive win at Kirkby.

A cracking game at Lindal saw the home side make a great effort to get the needed win that would have almost certainly see them avoid relegation.

Visitors Workington had first knock and Callum Moffat was in good form making 93, and with Simon Beare’s 65, Workington made 222 all out. Edward Waind, with 5 for 55, has taken 16 wickets in the last three games. In reply, the Moor came close but when overs ran out, were 194 for 7, Paul Wilcock finishing on 57 not out. Matt Gorley returned 4 for 40.


Vickerstown were at Cleator, knowing a win could take them back to the Premier Division. They batted first, but except for Sam Beckman with 42, the Walney side batted poorly to be all out for 121, Cameron Bell taking 4 for 31. In reply, opener Steve Wishart anchored the innings with a workmanlike 64 to take Cleator to the win at 123 for 6. Vickerstown skipper Gareth Benson took 3 for 30.

Egremont entertained fellow relegation strugglers Lanercost who batted first but never really mastered the Egremont attack and were all out for 130.

In reply Egremont were 131 for 3, Penrith II at home to Seascale had first knock and made 248 for 6. Seascale were all out for 140

Division One leaders Appleby Eden went in first at Wigton and made 136 for 9. Wigton eased home on 138 for 5, and Appleby’s lead is down to 15 points
