Shock of the weekend was the defeat of current champions and Premiership leaders Carlisle Cricket Club's second-team at Scotby, resulting in Caldbeck moving to the top of the Eden Valley Cricket League Premiership.

Scotby were shot out for just 79 in 32.4 overs, relying on skipper Luke Jackman (27) for their meagre score. Jordan Oultram (4/23), James Bell (2/20) and Taryn Reay (2/15) did the damage.

But for the second week in succession, Carlisle’s redoubtable batting line-up failed as they were dismissed for 72.

Paul Glascott’s 28 was the only score of note. James Swann (3/12), Olly Driver (3/20) and Nick Rigg (2/19) were the bowlers in form.

Caldbeck (184/5) chased down a competitive Wigton second-team (181/4) score at Lowmoor Road.

George Johnston (71) and Tom Fleming (57 not out) were best for the home side. A solid all-round batting performance took Caldbeck to victory with 2.2 overs remaining. Jack Proudlock, with an unbeaten 58, was best but he supported by all his team-mates.

Temple Sowerby (198/6) lost a high-scoring game at home to Lanercost (271/10).

Charles Gray (138) top-scored for the visitors with Mike Swindle (5/48) again among the wickets.

Temple Sowerby relied on Ross Jackson (55), Steve Hodgson (36 not out) and Andrew Muncaster (36 not out) for the bulk of the runs. Ant Pritchard (3/71) was best with the ball.

The match between Kirkby Stephen and Threlkeld was cancelled due to a waterlogged ground.

In Division One, an under-strength Appleby Eden (56/4) had a comfortable six-wicket win against Carleton (52/10).

Only Daniel Tickner (15) got into double figures as James Hullock (3/14), Ryan Davidson (2/17) and Josh Bellas (2/10) ripped the visitors out. The run-out of Ben Smith didn’t help the visitor’s cause.

Some poor shot selection saw Appleby losing wickets, although the result was never in doubt as Appleby increased their lead at the top as a result of Edenhall’s game with Langholm being off and Staffield only managing a point against Keswick's second-team.

Keswick (255/6), with Graeme Dixon (118 not out), proved too much for Staffield (198/4) despite the efforts of Peter Armstrong (60) and Steven Thomlinson (78 not out) and took just one point for their efforts.

Wetheral (133/10) comfortably beat Carlisle 3rds (77/10) by 56 runs.

Richard Timperon made 48 for the home side. Adam Tiffen (5/32) and older brother Harvey Tiffen (3/22) were the main wicket-takers, Nathan McStay (28) the only batsman of note as Tom Fuller (6/20) and Lee Hogarth (3/23) ran through them.

Patterdale against Stainton was also a victim of the weather.

In Division Two, Lanercost's second-team (133/10) shocked leaders Nunwick (113/10), beating them by 20 runs.

Daniel Cottrill (30) top-scored for the home side. James Tweedie (5/23) was outstanding for Nunwick.

Nunwick’s reply started well with Tweedie (28) but fell away, as they lost their last six wickets cheaply as Andrew Kennedy (5/16) produced a fine spell to clinch the victory.

Caldbeck's second-team (263/6) saw experienced duo Steven Blake (123) and Mike Strong (71 not out) lead the way to a winning draw.

Gamblesby (204/9) started well with Darren Coleman (40) and Luke Butler (49) but collapsed until the 10th-wicket pair of Steven Hodgson (37 not out) and Ben Weatherstone (19 not out) salvaged a point. Richard Woods (4/55) was best with the ball.

Irthing Vale against Braithwaite was another cancelled game.

Penrith 3rds (95/3) beat Kirkby Stephen 2nds (94/10) by seven wickets.

Mick Watson (33) top-scored with Nathan Ellwood (6/36) outstanding for Penrith. Oliver Langley (50) hit the bulk of Penrith’s runs.

In the Sunday League, Keswick 3rds (165/5) lost a close game with Lanercost Colts (169/5) by three wickets.

They had Jack Baker (50) and Daniel Cottrill (37) to thank for their total. It was good to see Colin Carter (2/11) back in action after his recent illness.

Appleby Eden's second-team (70/0) were convincing 10-wicket victors against Caldbeck Colts (69/10).

Shane Barden (4/10) was the best of the Appleby bowlers. In their reply, Appleby Eden openers Chris Beckwith (36 not out) and Carl Hodder (32 not out) wasted little time, allowing the Caldbeck squad to depart to nearby Nunwick to support their first-team in the Senior League Cup Final.

Finally, a feather in the cap for the Eden Valley League with Kirkby Stephen Under-11s mixing it with the big sides of Workington, Cockermouth and Penrith at Workington on Sunday in the League Cup Under-11 finals.

Workington beat Cockermouth and Kirkby Stephen beat Penrith to set-up the final.

In a nail-biting game, Workington needed two to win off the last ball, and Liam Barr took off the bails to give Kirkby victory by one run.
