A second victory of the weekend saw Nelson go 8 points clear after an 8 wicket win over bottom side Accrington on Sunday. A 3rd wicket stand of 173 between professional Joe Scuderi, who hit a superb unbeaten 124 to go past 600 runs for the season, and opener Ian Clarkson, who hit an unbeaten 69, saw Nelson to an easy victory after Accrington had snapped up two cheap wickets. Professional Shane Warne came under the cosh from the Nelson pair, conceding 87 runs from his 14 over spell. Accrington had earlier made a respectable 208-8. Paul Barratt (58) and Billy Rawstron (42) put on 60 for the 3rd wicket and then useful runs from Martin Whittle (30) and Mark Greenhalgh (18) enabled Accrington to reach their highest score of the season to date.
