England’s Alex Hartley proved four-midable with the ball when Clitheroe’s second string took on Middleton at Station Road.

The World Cup winner, who plays for Lancashire Thunder in the Kia Super League, took 4-9 from 26 balls in the 15 run loss.

The 25-year-old was the stand out performer and helped restrict the visitors to 93 but her team mates failed to back the spin bowler up with the bat.

Hartley, whose home this term will be at Emirates Old Trafford, played an important role in England’s ICC World Cup triumph last summer, where she claimed 2-58 from her 10 overs in the final at Lord’s - taking her tally of wickets for the tournament to 10 from eight matches.
