Mark Daly and Sachith Pathirana each took four wickets, as Furness maintained their 100 per cent record in the Premier Division of the Cumbria Cricket League with a 132-run thrashing of Workington last Saturday.

After winning the toss and choosing to bat, Furness gave a solid performance all down the order, with Scott Pearcey (40) and Lewis Gribbin (38) leading the way to help their side to post 200-9.

Workington’s Simon Beare took 3-53 in his 15 overs, but the visitors had one of those days with the bat, with only opener Grant Reid (25) providing any kind of resistance, as his side were rolled out for just 68.

Sri Lankan overseas player Pathirana took a brilliant 4-10 and Daly, 4-20, as league leaders Furness made it five wins in a row in the league this season.

Paul O’Callaghan ripped through Wigton’s batting line-up as Millom recorded an impressive 107-run victory at Lowmoor Road.

After being put in to bat, Millom recovered from the early loss of Robert Thompson, with wicketkeeper Danny Fallows top-scoring with 47.

Mike Wilson and Sameera Sadamal each chipped in with 39 to help the visitors to 190 all out, as Wigton captain Nico Watt did all he could to restrict the visitors in claiming 5-52.

However, in reply Wigton, with the exception of Jovan Van Wyngaardt, who made 41, could not cope with the Millom attack and were dismissed for 83.

O’Callaghan took 6-36 and the ever-improving spinner Braith Conner 3-5 from his four overs.

Dalton, who had made a good start to their campaign, fell short of what was a modest target, as they were agonisingly defeated by 16 runs at Whitehaven, who picked up their first win.

The visitors appeared to be in control when they bowled out Whitehaven for 106, with Paul Woodend leading their attack with 4-34 and Lasith Waduge claiming 3-27.

But Dalton were always in trouble with the bat, with only Liam Curwen (32) showing any form as they collapsed to 90 all out, with Ryan Burl (5-54) and Habib Baloch (4-32) their tormentors.

Lindal Moor had a poor day with the bat against Carlisle at Pennington Lane, as Jack Cumberbatch top-scored with 37 in their 114 all out, with Mike Slack taking 4-46.

Phil Frazer and Henry Walker both took three wickets for Carlisle, for whom captain Marc Brown made an unbeaten 43 to help the visitors chase down their target in 27.2 overs and win by seven wickets.

There was a thriller at Cleator, where the home side just about defended 213-9 by bowling out Keswick for 193 with a little over three overs left to win by 20 runs.

Things were much more comfortable for champions Cockermouth, who piled on 272-8, with captain Alex Grainger making a superb 97, against Egremont, who were skittled for 91 (Jonathan Norman 6-25).
