Scotby win top-of-the-table battle with Caldbeck

One would expect a close encounter when only a point separates the two teams leading the Eden Valley Premiership and Scotby and Caldbeck didn’t disappoint as the former held on to win by three runs.

Both teams struggled early in their innings, with Mark Vasey instrumental in the home side reaching a total, which was considered to be below par, but better than earlier expectations. Caldbeck’s early batsmen failed dramatically, seven wickets down before reaching the half century, before Mark Strong started to redress the balance.

But once he departed the last pairing still needed an unlikely forty six for victory. Caldbeck captain, Kevin Pattinson played an aggressive innings, typified by the six he struck of his opposite number, Nick Rigg, leaving four required for victory.

But the Scotby captain had the perfect riposte; an inswinging yorker which removed leg stump. Caldbeck have the opportunity for revenge this weekend as the two teams renew acquaintances in the League Cup final at Staffield on Sunday.

Elsewhere, in the division, Carlisle III retained bragging rights over their senior colleagues at Edenside with the best part of a draw, Culgaith beat Nunwick I and Appleby II comfortably won a one sided match against Staffield. In Division One, with Braithwaite virtually assured of promotion, the second place is still wide open.

Edenhall retain an interest that promotion place with a win at Baggrow with Matthew Wilson top scoring again; he is rapidly becoming the player the opposition wish to dismiss the soonest. One close game in Division Two where leaders Keswick II won by four wickets at home to third place Lanercost II, whilst the remainder were far from that.

Wigton III, who hadn’t played a home game in two months, played twice and won both. Wigton captain Mark Evans will have had mixed feelings; two excellent results balanced with the fact that he ran himself out four short of his maiden ton.

Both Carleton and Penrith Academy would prefer to forget the weekend as both lost on successive days, although an honourable mention here for Penrith’s Nick Hall who took a hat- trick at Lowther. Scant consolation for Academy’s captain as his side becomes the first to be relegated this season.

Tattoos.... attractive body art or disfigurement? What do you think?

Love them! Tattoos are a great way to express yourself

Hate them. Goodness knows what they'll look like when these folks are 70

Pain for no gain. They're a passing fashion with risk
