Accrington's match against East Lancs at The Property Shop Arena was called off after the home side had made 221 all out. Professional Lasith Lakshan top scored with 68 from 98 balls, including eight boundaries, his first Lancashire League half century, in Accrington's 221 all out. Joe Bolton sent back opener Matt Wilson (6) at 29 but Stuart Crabtree and Lakshan added 40 before the amateur fell to Phill Aspinall for 42, made from 55 balls. Tom Walker (27) joined his professional to add another 70 for the 3rd wicket before becoming the first of Josh Bristol's (5-67) five victims. Bristol removed Lakshan at 163 and Bulcock (12) at 182. Ten runs later Mo Hansrot had Jon Hayhurst (4) caught behind by John Turner. Bristol held a return catch off Andy Greenwood (16) at the same score. Eight runs later Hansrot picked up his second Hayhurst of the afternoon by bowling Jimmy (1). Bristol claimed his maiden Lancashire League five wicket haul when he cleaned up Ross Brown (2) at 211. Riley Armstrong (11) was last man out to Aspinall leaving last man skipper Graeme Sneddon unbeaten on 7 when the innings closed on the final ball of the 50th over. Rain prevented East Lancs from batting.
