A devastating spell of bowling from professional Bernard Vorster did the damage as Ribblesdale Wanderers dismantled Brinscall at Church Meadow.

The South African took four wickets at the expense of just six runs during an incredibly clinical eight overs.

Father and son combination, Ian and Jordan Britcliffe, also took five wickets between them as the visitors were sent packing with 59 runs on the board.

Mack Spencer had earlier been the pick of the batsman in the home side’s 131-7 as he survived all 127 balls faced to make an unbeaten 62.

Batsman Bilal Ahmed hit five fours and eight sixes before culminating his innings on 114 the next day as Wanderers signed off on 238-9 against Read but the game was abandoned.
