RAINFORD had a weekend to forget with defeats at Fleetwood Hesketh in the league and Lytham in the cup.

After bowling the Southport outfit out for 140, Dan Houghton 3-34 and Dan Hewitt 4-34, they crumbled to 115 all out. Only Matt Bailey (30) and Joe Noctor (25) offered any resistance.

On Sunday they lost by 10 wickets at Lytham.

Meanwhile the 2nd XI were chalking up their fourth consecutive win in a run feast back at the Jubilee Recreation Ground.

Colwyn Bay’s openers, Wallace and Green, both hit centuries as the Bay declared on 247 for 5. The Rainford reply got off to a good start with Jack Hemingway’s 41 and was then continued by a magnificent 108 not out from Justin Dalrymple. The man known as Dallas rolled back the years to carry his side to victory by five wickets.
