THE second Craven derby in two weeks proved to be a repeat of the first, with Settle easily overcoming Barnoldswick as they did Earby.

The Marshfield men batted first on the superb home track and were off to a flyer until skipper Will Davidson was caught at mid-off for ten.

A patient partnership between Archie Phillipson (28 from 88 balls) and pro Ashen Silva (66 from 96) then set a solid foundation for their side. Silva hooked and pulled his way to yet another half-ton, passing five hundred runs for the season.

Robbie Davidson made an unbeaten 28, while James Snowden put in some lusty blows at the end of the overs, making 19 from seven balls as the home side finished on 194-7.

Barnoldswick opener Adil Khan (18) was the only player to reach double figures as paceman Eddy Read took two wickets for just 15 runs from twelve overs. Harry Snowden joined the action with 3-24 in a couple of spells, making way for the spinners to clear out the middle order. Dante Niles took 2-10 while Silva rounded off a great all-round day with 3-10 in seven overs. The visitors lasted just thirty overs, losing by 134 runs.

Unbeaten Settle are runaway leaders of the Ribblesdale League Senior Division but will face sterner competition next Saturday at fourth-placed Cherry Tree who have won six out of eight games.
