There was little change at the top of the Bolton Cricket League with the top four teams all winning, but victory for Lostock moved them above opponents Tonge into fifth place.

Lostock made 136, Simon Hanson top scoring with 38, Hashan Dumindu taking 3-27 for Tonge and Soyab Haji 3-31. Tom Sheen with 3-9 and James Evens with 3-29 helped bowl Tonge out for 93.

Richard Dempster took 3-16 as Astley Bridge were dismissed for 105, then helped Farnworth Social Circle retain their place at the top of the table with a match-winning innings along with Liam Ashworth after Harsha Rajapaksha took 3-18 to induce a Circle mid-order wobble.

Kearsley slumped from 57-2 to 98 all out, with Curtis Anderton taking 7-27, but even this modest total looked out of Little Lever’s reach as they lost eight wickets for 54 runs, but then Anderton with 23 runs and Ayaz Hanif with 35 took Lever over the line without further loss. Earlier in the innings Dave Mather (5-46) and Cameron Murray (3-50) had done the damage for Kearsley.

There was a century partnership between Dean Bell (74) and Brett Pelser (53) as Horwich totalled 166-4 in their 30 overs. This looked in danger as Eagley passed three figures for the loss of just one wicket, but once Adeel Baig was out for a 69-ball 71 the remaining batsmen were unable to maintain the momentum with Jack Berry taking 4-39 and they ended the game 20 runs adrift with seven wickets down.

Adam Patel recorded figures of 5-20 as Atherton were bowled out for 80, and a 75-run partnership between Matty Morris (46) and Kimani Melius (33) took Westhoughton to a nine-wicket victory.

There was no play in the Walkden v Blackrod and Farnworth v Little Hulton matches.

Just two games survived the weather in the Bolton League 2nd XI competition and Westhoughton took full advantage of the opportunity to move level with Darcy Lever at the top of the table.

Westhoughton made the short trip down to Atherton and came away with a comprehensive 166-run win. They won the toss and elected to bat first and found themselves on 51-3 before an 80-run partnership between TJ Pindoria (30) and Jamie Bates who went to make exactly 100 off just 55 balls with seven sixes and eight fours.

Arun Pindoria and James Burrow then chipped in with 20s and the innings closed on 238-5 with Tom Mather the pick of the bowlers. Atherton were soon in trouble in the chase and wickets began to fall regularly as they mustered just 68-8 in reply, Sam Conner taking 3-10.

The other game to beat the weather was an exciting affair that saw Little Lever edge past their visitors Kearsley by a margin of just two wickets.

The game was reduced to 35 overs a side and Kearsley went in first after Lever had won the toss. They put together a handy looking 143-5 thanks in the main to 45 from Steve Pellowe with Bobby McLellan’s unbeaten 22 the highest of four other double-figure scores.

Little Lever’s reply followed a similar pattern as Joseph Rushton led the way with 41 not out and Don Heyes’ 24 being the highest of three other double-figure efforts. Dylan Jones had the splendid figures of 6-40 as his efforts proved in vain for Kearsley.

Darcy Lever and Westhoughton lead the way on 45 points with Farnworth Social Circle two points behind with Horwich RMI fourth on 38 points.
