Champs Cleator to start defence at home

CURRENT Higson Cup holders Cleator will begin their campaign to retain the trophy at home next season, against Duddon SC.

The draws for next season’s North Lancashire & Cumbria Cricket League’s cup competitions were made at the recent annual general meeting.

Also in the Higson Cup, last year’s beaten finalists Millom will host Penrith in round one, while Workington travel to Appleby, Carlisle host Kirkby, Keswick travel to Lindal Moor and Whitehaven entertain Haverigg.

The matches are wrapped up with Cockermouth welcoming current Sowerby Cup holders Wigton and Furness travelling to Vickerstown.

In the Sowerby Cup, Seascale begin their new campaign in the next flight with a trip to Lanercost. Last year’s beaten finalists Dalton go to Hawcoat Park, Cleator II host Vickerstown and Appleby entertain Millom II.

In the Vigodny Cup, Egremont have been handed a bye in the opening round with the other two West Cumbrian teams both away from home, Windscale at Haverigg and Whitehaven at Furness.

The AGM also saw some rule changes, with bowl outs in the three cup competitions one focus of attention.

It was carried that if, before the away team travels, it is understood that the ground will not be playable and a bowl-out necessary, the visitors can choose to hold the bowl-out at their own ground.

Each team will need a league umpire and a telephone link between the two will be established before the start and maintained throughout.

A proposal from Workington and Cleator clubs that registration be granted to any player who normally resides outside the UK on the basis of only one such player per club, and only if that club has no registered professional player, was also carried.

Penrith will now have a second team in the league, after their second string was accepted into division two.
