Longtown's Faulder out seven runs short of double century

Longtown's Eddie Faulder now holds all his club’s batting honours after narrowing failing to reach a double century against a depleted Baggrow, although he and Tony Steele did reach that milestone in a third-wicket partnership.

Once the innings was concluded their final total (358/3) had set the standard for the highest team score of the current Eden Valley League season. Faulder fell for 193.

Baggrow’s captain John Raven was in defiant mode, hitting the first two balls of the Baggrow innings for a four and a six, going on to make 116.

Remarkably he scored 88.54 per cent of his sides’ total, a deserved century reached and surpassed before running out of partners.

In the Premiership, with Caldbeck I’s match with Carlisle II was curtailed by the weather, and Stainton I inactive, Scotby grasped the opportunity to go to the top of the table with a comprehensive win over Shap.

It wasn’t as straightforward as their total suggests as Shap’s bowlers held sway early doors before Scotby counterattacked; they had scored only a quarter of their eventual total at the halfway stage, before accelerating and finishing with a flourish as sixty runs came from the last five overs.

Early pace setters Culgaith, beaten last week for the first time, had a weekend they would prefer to forget with back-to-back defeats at home to Appleby II and then away to Carlisle II for whom Matthew Trickett scored a century. In Division One Braithwaite increased their lead at the top of the table with the defeat of Wigton II.

Meanwhile, at the other end of the table Patterdale will feel relieved with their first points of the season in a win at Penrith III.

In Division Two the stand out score came from Keswick II, who also increased the gap between themselves and second place as they only lost one wicket in amassing a total which was too much for Wigton III. James Benson was their centurion.

Gamblesby finally returned home after some long term improvements to their ground and celebrated with a seven wicket victory over Lowther.

The highest score in Division Three came at Threlkeld where the home side took some measure of satisfaction from finally beating a Keswick side after numerous recent failures.

Keswick III would no doubt prefer to sweep the results under the carpet; the second highest total in the division came the following day, scored by Caldbeck II with Keswick II being the hapless victims.

The next two highest scores came in the same match as Langholm chased down Appleby III’s score with four wickets in hand, despite another century, this time from Appleby’s captain, Martin Brakewell.

So, to redress the balance, the bowling exploits for the father and son combination of Irthing Vale’s Neil and Phil Corrie who set up a comfortable five wicket victory at Nunwick II; they took seven wickets between them, with the latter recording seven maidens in ten overs. Not an auspicious start for the team from Great Salkeld, with Nunwick I’s match being abandoned near the halfway stage, the only points that either have accumulated have been courtesy of the weather.

No. I see no signs of growth here. Still can't make ends meet

All governments overlook Cumbria. They haven't a clue how bad it is here
