Last updated at 12:02, Monday, 02 July 2012
Premier Division’s Kirkby had first knock in their home game with league leaders Cockermouth and were soon in dire straits, with only Paul Fugler of the top seven batsmen getting into double figures.
However Mike Etchells batting at number 8 gave the Cockermouth attack his typical treatment and was last out having made 60 out of the Kirkby total of 110. In reply Cockermouth went to the win at 113 for 1, Alex Grainger top scored with 44.
At Carlisle, visitors Haverigg batted first and were indebted to Jordan Postlethwaite’s 53 not out, in a total of 164 all out. Saliya Saman, 3 for 30 and Richard Raybould, 3 for 37 were Carlisle’s main strikers. In reply Carlisle struggled against Brenton Parchment, 4 for 24, and Jordan Postlethwaite, 3 for 19, but helped by rain causing overs to be lost, hung on for the draw at 105 for 9.
Millom went in first at Lindal and would be fairly satisfied at tea with 183 for 8 in the book, Geeth Alwis making 70 and Mikey Wilson 54. Jack Cumberbatch and Jordy Hughes each took three wickets. Lindal Moor made a disastrous start losing 6 wickets with les than 70 on the board, but the lower order got their head down and got the draw at 107 for 9, Alwis taking 3 for 15.
Furness were at Workington, and at tea were 167 for 7, professional Ian Daniel top scored with 45. Workington’s batsmen must have thought a win was well on the cards, but had a disastrous day, being all back in the pavilion for 68, Pete Lawson, 4 for 26, and Ian Daniel, 3 for 11, doing the damage.
There was no play in the Keswick v Cleator and Whitehaven v Penrith games due to waterlogged grounds.
Hawcoat Park were at Egremont and batting first were given a sound start by openers Peter Harrison with 38, and Sam Hilton, 34. After that the Hawcoat batting gave the home attack little concern, and when overs ran out, only had 116 for 9 on the board. Egremont’s Shaun Bostock returned 7 for 16 in his twelve overs. In reply Egremont only lost two wickets going to the win. The reliable Ian Littleton making 52 not out and Gavin Parkinson 31 not out.
Seascale batting first at Rainey Park, found Vickerstown skipper, Gareth Benson too hot to handle, and were all out for 42, Benson finishing with 5 for 13.
