Cockermouth Cricket Club got the five points they needed to secure the North Lancs and Cumbria Premier Division title as they beat Wigton by 129 runs.

In a game reduced to 80 overs, Cockermouth had first knock and, once again, the top-order were in great form.

The opening pair of skipper Gareth White and Alex Grainger put on 126, before Grainger was bowled for 57 by professional Mike Slack.

After 50 overs, the Sandair side were 252 for 3, and skipper White had made an unbeaten 103.

Wigton’s usually reliable batting line-up failed badly to be 38 for 5.

John Reed’s 35 made some improvement but Wigton were all out in 40 overs for 123.

Cockermouth’s Richie Berrington – with 3 for 23 in nine overs, and Chris Hodgson again very effective taking 3 for 34 in 13 overs – ensured their side, unbeaten since August 11, were deservedly crowned league champions for the third time. Previous successes were in 2006 and 2012.

Keswick beat Lindal Moor by seven wickets.

Put into bat, the Moor had a poor day, only opener Paul Clarke getting past 20.

Veteran player and Keswick Club chairman Keith Richardson took 4 for 27 in 11 overs.

In reply, the home team suddenly found themselves 16 for 2 but their reliable pro, Geeth Kumara, with 39 not out saw Keswick to the win in the 20th over at 79 for 3.

Haverigg’s competent ground staff managed to get the game played, but reduced to 76 overs as they got the better of Millom.

Deciding to bat, Haverigg’s openers, skipper Drew Postlethwaite, 88, and Dale Graham, 62, gave the village a great start and after their 38 overs, the Poolsiders were 197 for 7. Millom’s Graham Dawson took 4 for 44.

Millom started well. Danny Fallows making 66, but the last six men in the order only made 13 between them and Mllom were 167 all out. Haverigg’s spinner Jordan Postlethwaite took 7 for 60.

Haverigg didn’t avoid relegation but this result eased the pain.

Asked to bat, Workington struggled throughout their innings.

Opener Kieran Hull top-scored with 24 and the home side were all out for 128 in the 40th over. David Rooney was again among the wickets taking five for 22 in 12.2 overs.

Cleator made a good start with openers Tom Sharpe and Dave Watson putting on 52.

Watson went for 27, followed by Sharpe on 31, but James Rogers clinched the game with 40 not out off 57 balls, taking his side to 129 for 4 in 34 overs. Workington pro Kaushalya Gajasinghe took 3 for 36 in 12 overs

In a 60-over game, Whitehaven had first knock and were 143 for 6 in their 30 overs.

Furness had a poor day with the bat and were all out in the 27th over for 120.

Carlisle's match at Dalton was abandoned.

In the first division, Kirkby, in first, didn’t have a good day.

Three players got into the twenties but the side were all out for 103 in the 37th over. Seascale’s Steve Brown Jnr took 5 for 25 and Andrew Knott 3 for 26, both bowling 13 overs.

Seascale’s reply was dominated by Adam Brown who blasted 73 off 42 balls with five fours and seven sixes to see his side win in the 24th over with 106 for 5.

The matches between Egremont and Workington, Ulverston and Cockermouth, Barrow and Hawcoat Park and Vickerstown and Furness all saw no play due to rain. Each team gets 4pts.

No division two games were played due to rain, either.
