to join them af­ter a thump­ing win over Ains­dale. Martyn Far­rell took 5/58 for the vis­i­tors to limit ORT to 161, but that was as good as it got for them – they crum­bled for 61, the last rites de­liv­ered by a spell of five wick­ets in 17 run­less balls from Joe Lyth.

Wi­gan and Sefton Park, both of whom were in with a sniff of pro­mo­tion, played out a draw that suited nei­ther side’s am­bi­tions. The hosts closed on 163/8, with Park fin­ish­ing on 121/6.

Burscough look doomed to be play­ing Divi­sion Two cricket next sea­son af­ter they failed to chase 100 against Fleet­wood Hes­keth.

In such a low-scor­ing game, An­drew Watts’ 63 was in­valu­able for the vis­i­tors; Ryan Thomas did the dam­age with the ball, tak­ing 5/23 to wrap up a 15-run win.

New­ton-le-Wil­lows put some dis­tance be­tween them­selves and the bot­tom two with a 95-run win over Birken­head Park. Skip­per Christo­pher Cham­bers top-scored with 70, while Marc de Bra­ban­der’s un­beaten 50 helped set up a to­tal of 249/7; Park fell for 154. Wavertree earned a four-wicket win over Prestatyn af­ter Matt Na­tion’s 5/57 dis­missed the Welsh­men for 145.
