The game at Hamilton Road was finely balanced but the rain came to decide the result of the game. A fine opening stand between Dean Temple and Neville Entwistle set home side Stand on their way to a large total.

Dexter Fitton kept plugging away and was rewarded with figures of 20-6-53-4 including the scalps of Warden 4 and Hall 1 Just as it looked like Stand May collapse John Seedle arrived at the crease and played a patient unbeaten innings of 49 and helped them reach 199-7

Unfortunately for Seedle he had a less than happy time with the ball as Mark Whiteley took to his bowling and his two overs cost 20 runs. Warden dismissed Chris Dearden for nine when the heavens open and the game ended with Littleborough 24-1 from four overs.
