BRADLEY YATES smashed his sec­ond ton of the sea­son to send South­port & Birk­dale top with a 25-point win at Burscough.

Yates’s un­beaten 111 – sup­ported by 50 from Alex Trim­boli – set up a to­tal of 241-5, which the hosts never looked like reach­ing.

They dug in – Alan Mur­ray’s 51 the high­light – but Gary Keedy’s 5-26 made sure of the win, by 107 runs.

Or­rell Red Tri­an­gle drop to sec­ond de­spite suc­cess­fully de­fend­ing 91 against Fleet­wood Hes­keth, who were skit­tled for 60 hav­ing been 27 with­out loss.

An­other lows­cor­ing game at Aig­burth saw Sefton Park win their derby clash against Liver­pool by three wick­ets.

Daniel Kelly was the star with the ball, tak­ing 6-28. Peter Kelly threat­ened to spoil the party, with 6-35, but Park got over the line.

Ains­dale’s Sam White took 5-20 to set up their nine-wicket win over New­ton-leWil­lows.

Mark Lucas fin­ished on 51 as the vic­tory was wrapped up in­side 18 overs.

Prestatyn beat Birken­head Park by five wick­ets after Peter Cas­sidy’s 5-23 re­stricted the hosts to 114 – it would have been less with­out some biff­ing from num­ber 10 Alex Har­ris, who made 40.

And Wi­gan’s 243-7 – in which John Richard­son scored 92, and Charles Tay­lor 59 not out – was too much for Wavertree, who fell short by 42 runs de­spite Josh Birch’s 55.
