Enfield ’s 48 run win at Thorneyholme Road virtually sealed the title with just three more matches left to play. Skipper Geoff Dixon made 56, professional Madan Lal 38, Ian Metcalf 27 and George Holt an unbeaten 25 in the visitors 164-5. Paceman Chris Ryan then scythed through the home sides batting line-up taking 7-41 as Accrington were bowled out for 116. Malcolm Taylor made 32 and opener Graham Beech 22 in the Accrington innings. Bizarrely, Accrington won their final three matches whilst Enfield failed to take any points as No Results allocated no points to either side in the early days of limited overs cricket. Scorecard
