A career best 44 from Accrington's Wayne Roberts forced a rare Bacup bowling change as the home side put on 63 for the first wicket with Mus Ahmed hitting 38. Captain Neal Wilkinson took over from David Ormerod and picked up 4-37 with Shaun Young also taking four wickets, but Bacup failed to bowl Accrington out for the second time this weekend inspite of getting rid of professional Tama Canning cheaply on both occasions. Young (65) and Peter Thompson (24) put on 109 for the 2nd wicket as Bacup won by 7 wickets.
