Littleborough visited the Old Vicarage ground on Sunday as Little Hulton hosted the Hare Hill side in the Lancashire Cup.

Littleborough batted first and fine innings from Jones 55 and Whiteley 45 saw the visitors to a more than challenging 196-7. The home team ran Littleborough close, losing by only 11 runs as O’Sullivan 44 and Lee 38* made the visitors sweat with the game at no stage looking safe.

All the bowlers took a wicket , but Hunter with 8.0-0-46-3 the most successful. Littleborough would now travel to Kendal in the Quarter Final
