Rain again affected all but one of the games. Champions Accrington lost for the fourth time in six matches going down on run rate at Haslingden. The home side made 147-3 from 30 overs with John Entwistle and Peter Swart both hitting 48 and Bryan Knowles an unbeaten 39. Peter West hit 60 but Accrington lost wickets regularly in an effort to keep up with the run rate. John Ingham took 3-25 and three run outs didn't help the champions cause as the innings ended on 116-9 after 28 overs. Accrington are now 12th with just 1 victory.
