Neil Hornbuckle blitzed Baxenden with an unbeaten 129 as Salesbury kept their promotion hopes alive.

Baxenden captain Ben Swindells carried his bat throughout the innings for an impressive 108 not out of 170 all out, as Hornbuckle and San Bristol took three wickets each.

Salesbury knocked off the required runs without losing a wicket, Hornbuckle scoring 129 not out off 95 balls, supported by Chris Riley, 39 not out.

The Red Caps host promotion rivals Padiham on Saturday.
