DIVISION one has seen Westgate overtake Sedgwick as the top side following a 160 run win against Kirkby Lonsdale.

Batting first, Garry Tattersall (48) and Craig Buchanan (55) gave the home side a great start which captain Andy Hill (48 not out) capitalised on with his highest score of the season, declaring on 183/4. 

Sam Conroy (4/6) and Zak Buchanan (5/16) then bowled out Kirkby Lonsdale for 26. 

Ben Philips’ 40 underpinned Burnside’s 167 all out at Sedgwick, receiving good support from Steve Cooper (25) and Ben Leacock (29) whilst Jonny Matthews (3/44) and Tom Ridley (6/42) meant that Burneside could not exceed 200. 

Philips then took 6/10 as Sedgwick were all out for 61, the only real resistance coming from Ali Howell (29).

Kendal 2nds are in second place after a 5 wicket win at Milnthorpe. 

Andy Dugdale took 4/17 as Milnthorpe were restricted to 76, James Parkinson making 23. 

Parkinson (3/10) made early inroads, but the experience of Terry Hunte (30) guided Kendal to victory. Heysham are in 4th place after a 100-run win at home to Bare.  Lee Calverley (38), Andy Hill (46) and Jamie Antcliffe (53) were the principal run scorers in Heysham’s 199/9, spinners Robbie White (4/32) and John Hughes (3/39) returning the best figures. 

Hughes (38) and Andy Butler (22) couldn’t stop Heysham’s bowlers, Jamie Cassidy taking 4/22 and Dave Parker 3/8.

Warton are in 5th place thanks largely to Tony Barrow who made 58 in his first appearance of the season and Tom Barnfield (41) in their 142.  Trimpell’s Gaurang Agrawal took a WCL best of 5/16 and Peter McDermid chipped in with 3/35.  Only Danny Halstead (29) resisted as Shaun Partridge (4/23) and Ryan Needham (3/13) bowled Trimpell out for 82. Arnside and Shireshead drew on Bank Holiday Thursday.

All the Shireshead batters contributed to 214/7, Ernie Collinson (36) and Dave Jack (33) the highest scorers.  Eddie Hart (35) and Lee Illingworth (28) gave Arnside a good start but were stalled by Jack Cunnington (4/25) but Adam Richardson (33 not out) comfortably negotiated the draw as Arnside finished on 159/6.

Holme extended their lead at the top of Division 2 to 26 points with a 112-run win at Ingleton.  Robin Adams (52) and Paul Duckett (54) were the main run scorers in 165, Graham Kellett taking 5/18 and Josh Capstick (3/56). 

Ian Betley (5/13) is an occasional player for Holme, but he reminded everyone of how good a bowler he is and received support from Lee Barnes (4/16) as Ingleton were all out for 53. Cartmel remains in second place after Bob Davies’ unbeaten 82 from 131 balls helped them reach their target of 180 for the loss of 5 wickets, with 5 balls to spare. 

Westgate 2nds innings had been built on Dave Hannigan’s 41 and a quickfire 36 from Rory Briggs before Joe Cowperthwaite (3/49) and Will Anderson (3/28) induced a middle order collapse and Stuart Bailey (3/38) wrapped up the innings.

In third place are Shireshead 2nds who scored 206/8 with Paul Yates (55) making his first fifty of the season, and Adam Murphy (32) and Jake Agar (26) also contributing. 

Cumbria under 15 captain Louis Bigland (36) was the only batter in double figures as Netherfield 3rds were all out for 75, Shireshead captain Mike Mead taking a club best of 5/14. Richard Ivison made 71 from 67 balls as Coniston made 196/6 at Carnforth, Elliott Newby making 35. 

Graham Dodds (44) secured the draw on 138/7 for Carnforth 2nds who were fielding five juniors. 

Ambleside captain, Barny Wileman (33 not out) celebrated his wedding of the previous day in the best possible way with a brilliant all-round performance in a 3 wicket win against Silverdale. 

It was all going pear shaped for Ambleside at 34/6, but Wileman and Adam Wood (21) and then James Greenwood (13 not out) took them to their target. 

Jon Mason took 4/19 for Silverdale but was eclipsed by Wileman who had taken 6/6 in Silverdale’s 86. 

Windermere climbed off the bottom of Division 2 with a 7 wicket win against Sedgwick 2nds.

James Thornton made 27 not out in 67 all out, Mark Armistead taking 4/23. 

Despite Matthew Cooper making 67 out of 120 all out, Galgate lost by 7 wickets to Arnside 2nds with Chris Myers taking 4/8 before James Dickinson made 61 not out from 84 balls in a straightforward chase.

Holme 2nds beat Trimpell 2nds by 88 runs while the youth of Alfie Moffat (3/5) and the experience of Mike Moon (3/11) bowled out Leven Valley for 79. 

Silverdale 2nds went on to win by 4 wickets.

In the clash of the top two in Division 4, Burneside 2nds beat Bare 2nds by 8 wickets.  Jordan Wilkinson (5/24) and Calum McKenzie (3/14) blew away Bare for 49 and Jack Thwaites made a patient 35 not out as Burneside gained 12 points to draw level at the top, with Bare and Sedgwick 3rds who gained an 8 wicket win bowling Kirkby Lonsdale 2nds out for 23, Chris Norman taking a devastating 7/4, including a hat trick.

Just one point behind is Shireshead 3rds who beat Westgate 3rds by 97 runs.

Keegan Jones (57), Zeri Tomlinson (49 not out) and Julian Cann (67 not out) bucked the low scoring trend as Sedbergh School 3rds made 227/3 declared against Netherfield 4ths who replied with 97, Steve Bowman making 45.

In the Hackney & Leigh Trophy, holders Shireshead beat Bare to qualify for the quarterfinals as did Westgate whose victory over last year’s finalists sees Westgate and Warton progress from the group. 

There was an incredible game at Milnthorpe where the home side bowled out Kendal for 20 before sliding to 5/5 and 10/6 as the first six batters made ducks. Former captain Andy Cormack (8 not out) then made the highest score of the game as Milnthorpe won by 3 wickets with not a little help from 9 wides.

Burneside 2nds beat Bare 2nds in the Moon & Coxhill Trophy as did Coniston 2nds against Shireshead 3rds.
