Rawtenstall beat Accrington by 85 runs in a friendly at the Property Shop Arena. An opening stand of 116 between Matt Kershaw (69) and Cameron Holder (35) laid the foundations for Rawtenstall's 203-5. Rizwan Shafiq also chipped in with 24.

Tight bowling from Rohid Ashraf (3-24), Abbas Ahmad (3-36) and Keith Roscoe (2-9 from 8 overs) restricted Accrington to 118 all out.
