Heaton moved up to third place in the Anthony Axford Bolton Cricket League Premiership with a two-wicket win against Kearsley.

Both Aman Arora and Cameron Murray hit 61 as Kearsley made 215-5, but Heaton recovered after losing three early wickets.

After the top order failed Sandeep Varsani, with 67, and Irfan Muhammad, 47, put their side in a position to win in the penultimate over.

Mohammed Jameel and Rob Reade both took three wickets.

Little Lever are joint leaders along with Walkden, who were without a game at the weekend.

Lever dismissed Farnworth for 90, with their four bowlers Curtis Anderton, Josh Hill, Adil Nisar and Louis Partington all in the wickets. Three of the bowlers conceded 22 runs, with Anderton being the exception going for just 21.

Opening the innings, Nisar then played his part with the bat, steering Lever to a six-wicket victory with 37 not out.

In fourth place with 15 points from three matches are Westhoughton.

On Saturday they bowled Farnworth Social Circle out for 116, Adam Patel the pick of the bowlers with 4-29.

Sohaib Shah then batted through the Westhoughton innings for 49 not out, taking them to a four-wicket victory.

Horwich are fifth place after their win over Lostock.

Rob Holgate, with a half century, rescued Lostock from 38-5 with an 84-run partnership with Tom Senior as they reached 127-6 in their 40 allotted overs.

Joe Baldwin then became the third opening batsmen to lead his side to victory with an unbeaten half century.

Tom Sheen gave Horwich some early scares taking 3-47, before Jack Berry assisted Baldwin with the recovery.
