Dalton quickly put their disappointing league defeat at Whitehaven behind them, as they won impressively at Silverdale to progress in the County Cup last Sunday.

A solid batting display down the order helped Dalton post a challenging 225-9 from their 40 overs, and Silverdale eventually fell 41 runs short of their target.

Just 24 hours after being bowled out for 90 chasing just 107, Dalton redeemed themselves after winning the toss and choosing to bat.

They were wobbling on 89-5, however, after Sri Lankan overseas player Lasith Waduge was dismissed for 30, but captain Daniel Sharpe went a long way to steadying the ship with a vital 38.

Dalton were then helped beyond 200 by Lewis Woodhead, who top-scored with 41 batting from nine, while he also shared an eighth-wicket stand of 66 alongside Sharpe.

Silverdale were reduced to 17-3 early in their reply and wickets continued to fall steadily as the hosts were eventually bowled out for 184 with 4.2 overs left unbowled.

Dalton's opening bowlers both impressed, with Matthew Holmes the pick of the attack in taking 3-22, just shading 3-25 from Woodhead.

Three of our teams were in action in the John Scott Cup and two of them clashed against each other, as Furness 2nd XI welcomed local rivals Barrow 2nd XI to Furness Park.

It wasn't much of a contest, however, as Furness hammered their inexperienced visitors by a whopping 241 runs after bowling them out for a paltry 33.

The hosts dominated with the bat after winning the toss, with opener Sam Stephens producing a magnificent 102 off 103 balls that included 12 fours.

Ben Spencer chipped in with 50 while wicketkeeper Joe Amison also reached 50 as Furness piled on 274-6, with Pranav Singh taking 3-67 for Barrow.

In reply, the visitors fell in a heap and were all out in just 15.3 overs, as Luke Shaw claimed an extraordinary 5-8.

In the same competition, Haverigg 2nd XI bowed out after Netherfield 2nd XI comfortably chased down their 85 all out to win by eight wickets.

Elsewhere, former Furness batsman Sam Dutton smashed 119 off just 55 deliveries, including 12 fours and seven sixes, as Cumberland defeated Northumberland by ten wickets in an MCCA T20 fixture.
