THERE was double joy for Settle on Sunday when both their sides reached cup finals.

The first team defeated Salesbury by 73 runs in the Ramsbottom Cup while their seconds beat Barnoldswick by 86 runs in the Lawrenson Cup.

Josh Mullinder proved to be the first team's match winner with the excellent figures of 5-38 as they bowled out their rivals for 128.

Salesbury were on the back foot from the start of their innings as paceman Matthew Simpson produced a fine spell of 2-16.

Tom Strickland (2-15) also helped keep the home side under pressure.

Settle had made 201 when they batted first with their openers Shakeel Richards (60) and Will Davidson (34) getting them off to a good start.

Robbie Davidson's knock of 34 helped Settle to post a challenging total despite the efforts of Stephen Brown (4-35) and Mohammad Shahbaz (3-45).

Settle's final opponents in the final will be Padiham who had a comfortable seven-wicket win over Ribblesdale.

The Settle second team avenged the league defeat they had suffered at the hands of Barnoldswick 24 hours earlier with a confident display.

Opening bowler Alan Lones took 4-46 and Joe Pickles (3-10) as Barlick were bowled out for 118 in reply to Settle's 204-7. David Scothern was the top scorer with 43.

Kyle Handy (54), John Tarbox (36no), Adam Strickland (22) and Lones (21) all made valuable contributions to the Settle total. The best of the Barlick bowlers was Mohammad Saffii (2-17).

Stacksteads will meet them in the final after seeing off Burnley Belvedere in their semi-final.
