Andrew Mercer’s five wickets helped title chasing Salesbury see off Padiham in their only game of the weekend.

Mercer finished with figures of 5-40 as Padiham were bowled out for just 80 runs.

Salesbury lost just one wicket in reply as Liam Parkinson (34 not out ) and Susantha Pradeep (42 not out) helped them reach the target in 17 overs.

The win puts them just three points behind leaders Settle having played one game less.

And Salesbury will be hoping to go top this weekend when they travel to Whalley for their game on Sunday.
