Accrington cantered to a 4 wicket win in a high scoring game at Rawtenstall. Professional Abid Ali made an unbeaten 64, former Accrington player Graeme Fowler 36 and Peter Wood 33 in the home sides 198-6 with professional Alan Worsick taking 4-63. Graham Beech made 44 in an opening stand of 76 with Geoff Hayhurst who made 62. Worsick then slammed a typical unbeaten 66 as Accrington won with 12 balls to spare to vanquish memories of Accrington’s previous visit in the Worsley Cup Final in August 1976. Scorecard
