FARNWORTH Social Circle extended their lead at the top of the table after just managing to complete the required overs in the field before their match at home to Little Lever was washed out.

Rules state that both sides must complete 25 overs before a result can be called, and after Social Circle made 193 they had the visitors at 52-7 from 25.4 overs when the rains came.

That gave them victory on run-rate, while second-placed Bradshaw's match at fourth-placed Westhoughton was abandoned.
