SETTLE Cricket Club continue their great run of form with both teams having won all nine games between them this season.

Fresh from their triumph in the much-postponed 2018 20/20 cup final, Settle firsts brushed aside Ribblesdale Wanderers in the Senior League on Saturday.

The visitors were invited to bat first on a damp and blustery Marshfield where Eddy Read (3-26) promptly dismissed both openers.

Pro Ashen Silva (3-23) bowled his opposite number Ryan Canning for 27, one of only two scores in double figures.

It was left to Will Davidson to polish off the tail with 4-9 from just 6.3 overs.

Wanderers' total of 83 was never going to be a problem, but Settle still had to bat with care.

Barbadian Danyl Husbands adapted his play superbly to address the unfamiliar conditions, making 45 not out from 76 deliveries, while Silva (29no) did the pro’s job of steering Settle home with the loss of one wicket inside 25 overs.

Settle II travelled to Feniscowles II on Sunday to continue their defence of the Lawrenson Cup title.

Asked to bat first, they made 132 all out with sound contributions from Alex Gould (20) and Joseph Pickles (19), but it was Benjamin Hulse who dominated the innings with a knock of 60, his third half-century for the club.

John Tarbox struck in the first over of the hosts’ reply, going on to take 4-15 from his eight overs.

Edward Bradley was almost unplayable from the other end, generating pace and bounce to concede only six runs from seven overs and claiming two wickets in the process. Spinner Joseph Handy took 3-32 as Feniscowles finally folded with the total on 76, so Settle march on to the quarter-finals.

The club sees plenty of action this weekend as the first team entertain Read on Saturday in the league and face a 70-mile trip to Formby on Sunday in the first round of the Lancashire Cup.

Meanwhile in Division One, Settle II travel to face Burnley Belvedere, and on Sunday and Settle III return to compete in Division Three after a nine-year absence, taking on Cherry Tree at Marshfield.
