THE bad weather continued to hit The James Cropper Westmorland League where only one game survived the conditions.

However, four cup games were played on another frustrating weekend for a majority of the teams across all three divisions.

In James Cropper Westmorland League Division One, Penrith Reserves moved up to third in the table after they defeated Kirkby Stephen 2-0.

Penrith, who played their first game since 29 January, battled tough weather conditions before goals by Brett Digby and Shaun Askins saw the hosts secure the win against a Kirkby Stephen team who remained bottom of the table.

All the league games in Division Two were postponed.

However, The Mason and Freeman Cup game between AFC Carlisle and Kendal County Reserves went ahead, with both teams playing on Harraby’s 3G artificial surface.

AFC Carlisle, who are bottom of the table, progressed into the next round after they won 6-3 with Jordan Hodgsons hat trick and goals by Mark Harding, Daniel Dixon and Nathan Doyle sealing the win against a talented Kendal County team.

In The Peter Daws Memorial Shield, two goals by Cory Harrison saw Endmoor Reserves win 2-1 at Wetherigg United Reserves, while Penrith Royal eased into the next following their 6-2 win over Langwathby United.

Workington Athletic eased into the next round of The Cumberland Cup after they defeated Kirkoswald 4-1.

And while all the other games were postponed, a special friendly match was played at Kendal Rugby Clubs 4G facility where James Cropper paper mill played G.F Smith paper mill.

The friendly, which was a social game, saw James Cropper run out 4-1 winners with Ryan Carradus scoring twice, while Gareth Wells and Lee Tattersall were also on the score sheet.
