GOING into the final round of Clitheroe Cricket League matches, Low Moor held a one-point advantage.

But the rain that has dogged the cricket season all summer put paid to their game on Wednesday, meaning they picked up just one point.

So all eyes were on Whalley the following night, where a win for Calderstones would clinch them the title.

Chipping A were the vistors, and they made 90 in their 15 overs.

Calderstones were made to struggle in reply, but old hand Simon Gorton steered them home by four wickets with 30 retired.

It was a personal triumph for Calderstones captain and organiser Dave Seedall, who finally won the league in his 15th season of trying!

In the other match played, Sabden made 108-3 at Chipping, with Phil Parker and John Hargreaves both making 30 retired.

In reply Ramblers stuttered to 66 all out.
