PAT Allington and Gary Collins had Chorley in a spin as Barrow scored a 24-run victory away to the fourth-placed team in the Northern Premier Cricket League on Saturday.

Having been asked to bat first at Windsor Park after losing the toss, the visitors were indebted to Daryl Wearing's quick-fire 81, which played a huge role in Barrow finishing on 191 all out after 50 overs. Stuart Naden was the pick of the Chorley bowlers with 5 for 87 from 16 overs.

Batting at number six, Wearing smashed his score from just 69 balls, which included five fours and six sixes. Toby Mowat (32) and Grant Roelofsen (30) also made useful contributions to Barrow's total.

In reply, Gayan Maneeshan scored 97 for Chorley, but received little support from elsewhere as just two other batsmen on the home side made it into double figures.

That was thanks in no small part to the efforts of Allington and Collins, who took 4 for 56 and 3 for 17 respectively. It was Allington who accounted for Maneeshan as well, with Chorley eventually being dismissed for 167 in 40.4 overs.

Barrow will aim to build on that impressive result when they host bottom side Preston this Saturday.
