Penrith looking for maximum points at Lindal Moor

Penrith should be able to make ground on one or two of the teams immediately above them in the North Lancs Premier Division.

For while Furness and Millom battle it out in south Cumbria, fourth-placed Penrith will be looking for maximum points when they travel to the same part of the county.

Penrith visit Lindal Moor who are only five points better off than Whitehaven who occupy the second relegation place above the apparently doomed Kirkby.

Last week at Cockermouth, Lindal Moor were skittled for 83 before their hosts and current league leaders knocked-off the required runs for the loss of just three wickets.

Meanwhile, Penrith were frustrated by the weather as they were looking forward to rolling over struggling Kirkby and didn’t even get started.

That was the story around the county as there was no play possible in the Millom versus Workington, nor in any of the six scheduled Division One matches due to waterlogged grounds.

Carlisle did get some action, though, and did enough to earn a draw against reigning champions Furness in the south of the county.

The game was reduced to 60 overs and at the close the city side had struggled to 92-9.

Mike Slack (42) and Alex Raybould (21) did the bulk of the scoring for Carlisle as Jordan Buchanan took 4-11 for Furness.

Earlier the consistent Carlisle professional Saliya Salman had taken 6-68 when Furness made an impressive 167-9 in their 30 overs. Professional Ian Daniel top-scored with 72.

Carlisle, who must still peer anxiously over their shoulders at the three teams below them travel to Keswick tomorrow.

Like Carlisle, Keswick were hanging on for a draw in their Premier Division game last Saturday.

They did well to peg hosts Haverigg to 150-9 in their 45 overs as opener Stephen Chapman top-scored with 43.

Keswick made a dreadful start with their top five batsmen back in the pavilion for only 22. A spirited 47 from Arran Davies, and with six more overs lost through rain, Keswick limped through to the draw.

The only other game which went the distance was in west Cumbria where Cleator added to Whitehaven’s woes next-to-bottom with a victory by 50 runs.

Jon Bennett took 5-38 when Cleator reached 146-9 but David Bell’s 6-22 was the deciding spell as Cleator bowled-out their local rivals for 96.
