Sedgwick remain top of the League after beating Sedbergh School by 88 runs.

Aaron Lomas (82) and Carl Bevan (44) got them off to a great start. 193/8 proved too much for the school team as Tom Ridley marked his bowling return with 4 wickets.

Westgate are breathing down Sedgwick’s necks, four points behind with a game in hand after a convincing 10 wicket win against Milnthorpe.

Only Mike Wills (36) made a significant contribution as the inform duo Dylan Conroy (4/21) and Zak Buchanan (5/15), who already have 51 league wickets between them, bowled them out for 94. After missing the first week of the season Conroy has taken 29 wickets at the barely believable cost of 4.14 runs per wicket. Garry Tattersall (30 not out) and Craig Buchanan (55 not out) knocked off the runs without alarm.

Arnside slipped to 4th as a masterly 118 not out from Lee Calverley, supported through the nervous nineties by brother Sam (40 not out) helped Heysham record 226/4. Calverley’s chanceless innings was his maiden hundred. Arnside could only reply with 102, Mike Shepherd making 41whilst Graeme Cassidy took 3/16 and Sam McClements 3/1 as the last 5 wickets fell for 13 runs.

Terry Hunte made 102 from 94 balls as Kendal 2nds made 201 all out.

The 60 year old former West Indies under 23 international is believed to be the oldest batsman to score a hundred in the League’s history. Luke Troughton took 3/61, but apart from 29 from Giles Cooper, Kirkby Lonsdale struggled to 82 all out, Andy Dugdale taking 4/21.

Hunte’s former Kendal teammate, Ben Philips made a destructive 97 with 8 fours and 5 sixes against Warton, receiving good support from Ethan Ellwood (37) and Dan Greenwood (28). Philips was denied a hundred by a brilliant catch from Jack Benson.

Ryan Needham (4/30) oversaw the final 5 wickets falling for 9, but 212 was a daunting total. With Oscar Coxon (3/13) bowling genuinely fast with five slips, supported by Ben Leacock (4/17) and Philips (3/8) Warton were all out for 42.

Joe Cunliffe (69) made a season’s best and with Tom Jacques (44) and Ernie Collinson (42) Shireshead accumulated 209/5 at Bare who on a docile pitch were able to bat out for the draw on 117/8, Archit Bhardwaj scoring 42 and Jake Allinson making a composed 24 not out.Dave Jack took 4/22.

Holme have opened up a 24 point gap at the top of Division 2 despite having to settle for a winning draw against Carnforth seconds.

Holme made 161/9 and Carnforth fancied the win with Adam Hornby and Graeme Dodds going well, but lost wickets at crucial times. Cartmel have risen to second place. Will Anderson (56) and Bob Davies (46) gave them a century opening stand, but Sedgwick 2nds Ben Harvey’s second spell saw him take 3/41 and with Ben Noar taking 3/19 the visitors were restricted to 167/7.

Only Matt Salisbury (34) really contributed as Sedgwick were all out for 93, Stuart Bailey taking 4/21. Robert Warne (36), Richard Ivison (51) and Chris Lavery (51) were the main men as Coniston scored 211 all out at Ingleton whose skipper, Luke Gorst, took 4/42. Ingleton set out to get the runs with Mark Hughes making 35 and Josh Capstick made a blistering 90 from 67 balls (12 fours and 5 sixes) before he was bowled by Mike Burton whose 6/44 was the main reason Coniston won by 48 runs.

Shireshead 2nds were struggling at 114/9 at home to Ambleside when number 11 Phil Oliver strode out to the wicket. He proceeded to smite 9 sixes making 70 from only 30 balls and adding 84 with Luke Bray (28 not out). Earlier Gareth Bleasdale had made 34 and Alex Brown had taken 4/23. Barny Wileman (33) and Adam Wood (34) were the main scorers for Ambleside, but the visitors were all out for 110, that man Oliver taking 3/7 from 6 overs. Harris Wood took 4/19 as Netherfield 3rds bowled out Silverdale for 76. Mike Robinson made 51 not out in a 7 wicket win completed within 14 overs. The most exciting finish of the day game at Windermere where Westgate 2nds were grateful to Dave Hannnigan (32) and Steve Creed (44) before late contributions from Sunil Naikwadi (29) and Sharjito Islam (24 not out) got them to 157/9, Lewis Rands-Trevor taking 5/45. Sam Harrison made 62 from 78 balls with all but four of his runs coming in boundaries. Harold Claxton made 30 not out, but Windermere with 8 wickets down finished an agonising 3 runs short.

Heysham 2nds remain top of Division 3 winning by 10 wickets. Aiden Yates took 4/5 and Harry Wallbank 3/11 as Arnside 2nds were skittled for 42. Galgate are 8 points behind in second place. Richard Marshall (32) and Siraaz Patel (34) had put Leven Valley in a decent position, but captain Chris Beales introduced the occasional spin of Danny Brighouse who took an amazing 5/0 from only 9 balls as the visitors collapsed to 87 all out. Rob Speak made 40 as the target was reached for the loss of 5 wickets. 14 year old George Battersby made a career best 68 not out, whilst his brother Oli made 74 in Morecambe 3rds 211/6, Alfie Moffatt taking 3/54 and Jack Belcher 3/31 for Silverdale 2nds. Harry Mason made 40 and captain Charlie Gaw’s 76 not out secured a draw on 178/8, Alex Hill taking 5/36. Kendal 3rds were all out for 93 as Carnforth 3rds young bowlers Charlie Riseborough took 3/22 and Myles Bowen 3/31, Matthew Yarker making 34. It was a dramatic run chase. Only Lee Potter (28) survived an onslaught from Jack Wheelhouse (3/14), Eve Thomas (2/5) and Matthew Yarker (2/6) but when Potter was out Carnforth were 65/7. Sam Barlow (15 not out) and Bowen (11) inched Carnforth over the line.

Ryan Heddle (36), Jonny Cormack (28) and Bob Baldwin (28) got Milnthorpe 2nds to 139 despite 4/17 from John Hughes and 3/21 from Chris Dyson.Sands were never in the hunt as Baldwin collected 4/6 as they were all out for 44. Trimpell 2nds knocked off 167 to beat Holme 2nds by 8 wickets with Danny Halstead hitting 95, after Mike Halhead had scored a fifty for Holme, Ian Semple took 3/18.

Mat Cook took 3/1 for Division 4 leaders Bare 2nds who bowled out Coniston 2nds for 23, Chris Rouse making 15 of the 21 runs from the bat. Bare won by 9 wickets. Burneside 2nds are in second place after beating Shireshead 3rds by 7 runs. Phil Hartley (37 not out) top scored in 114, Alan Moulsdale taking 4/35. Mark Heyes (21) and David Sloan (21) got Shireshead to 47/1, but a miserly spell of 3/11 from Mark Ward built the pressure enabling the home side to prevail. Howard Hirst took 4/23 as Morecambe 4ths bowled out Kirkby Lonsdale 2nds for 87. Alex Holmes made 45 not out as Morecambe won by 7 wickets. Ulverston 3rds beat Netherfield 4ths by 10 wickets, and Sedgwick 3rds beat Ingleton 2nds by 88 runs. Hrishi Desai top scored with 28, but Chris Chappell took 5/25. It was to no avail as Matthew Wright (5/10) and Chris Norman (4/2) bowled out the Yorkshiremen for 55.

In the Kendal Sports Trophies Cup there were wins for Heysham 2nds, Morecambe 3rds, Leven Valley and Kendal 3rds. Carnforth 2nds beat Silverdale in the British Rose Cricket Cup and join Holme and Shireshead 2nds, who beat Westgate 2nds, in the quarter-finals. In the same competition, Ambleside beat Windermere.
