The batting partnership of Callum Flynn and Sriram Krishnamurthy helped mid-table Swinton Moorside to victory over Winton in the only completed game on another rain-interrupted Saturday.

The pair hit 25-runs apiece with David Flatley also notching 21 as the home side totalled 162-8 from their 40 overs. Winton's best bowler was Simon Brittain who took 3-23.

With Winton needing 119 to win from their revised 26 over innings, Swinton's bowling trio of Jake Brown (3-42), Brad Palmer (3-22) and Matthew Norvall (3-14) skittled the visitors for just 85 to win by 34 runs.

The hosts, who had seen three of their first four home games abandoned due to rain, leap-frog Winton into ninth place in the table.

Captain and opening batsman Simon Belston top-scored with 27 as Bury looked to take advantage of the washout game between leaders Flixton and second-placed Daisy Hill at Lostock.

Mukthar Nasir also hit 22 at Haydock as the hosts notched up 132 off 37.1 overs.

David Flanagan took 5-47 off his 14 overs which included five maidens and Robert Holgate took 3-36.

J Belston took 2-2 as Lostock managed to post 43-4 off 18.4 overs before the game was abandoned due to rain, with Peter Flanagan the top scorer on 18 not out.

Unbeaten centuries from Jamar Griffiths and Matt Gallagher were in vain for fourth-placed Atherton at Golborne as rain robbed the reigning champions of the win that would have closed the gap on the sides at the top of the table.

The 173-run undefeated partnership of Griffiths (112) and Gallagher (104) helped the hosts to 247-1, with Roshon Primus also hitting 56.

Griffiths hit nine sixes and eight fours as he took just 42 balls to notch up his ton, with Rashon's half century coming off 26 balls.

Golborne replied with 73-5, with only Jack Cullen (19) scoring anything of note, before rain stopped play. Griffiths again starred with the ball taking 3-44.

Tom Foster top-scored with 29 for Adlington as the hosts ran in 103 all out from their 25 overs against bottom side Little Hulton in another rain interrupted fixture.

Professional Majid Majeed also hit 18 with the best bowling figures coming from Ansar Javed 3-27 and Harry McManus 5-31.

In reply, Little Hulton batted for just 7.1 overs, notching up 25-2, before the rains came and the match was abandoned.

Darcy Lever batted first in their reduced 26-over match at Astley and Tyldesley.

Chris Holt (63) and Nick Fawcett (50 not out) helped the visitors to 149-6 with Jim Cutt taking 4-40.

Astley and Tyldesley's reply never really got going as torrential rain saw the match abandoned with the hosts at 50-2 with both sides claiming four points.

Tony Kelly top scored for Standish as they posted 120-4 off their reduced 26 overs match against Edgworth. Tom Fairclough the best bowler with 2-24.

In reply, Edgworth only managed 13-2 from seven overs before the downpours began and the match was abandoned.

There was no play in the top of the table clash between leaders Flixton and second-placed Daisy Hill, while Elton's fixture with Worsley was called off and Blackrod against Walshaw was cancelled without a ball being bowled.
