sam dutton.pngCUMBRIA raced to an emphatic nine-wicket win against Northumberland to maintain their 100% record in the NCCA Trophy.

It means they have qualified for 

the quarter finals and a win in their next group game would guarantee them a home draw.

At Alnmouth the Northumberland innings never got going apart from a fourth wicket stand of 42 between Thomas Cant (43) and Jack McArthy (23).They had slipped to 23-3 when they came together but once they were out the innings subsided  to 118 all out.

Matthew Sempill with 3-12, Michael Slack (2-12) and Nico Watt (2-32) were the main wicket-takers for Cumbria.

Chasing a modest total, Sam Dutton took charge, ably supported by Nathan Waterston, and Cumbria cruised to the NCCA win by 9 wickets in just 21.3 overs - Dutton finished on 79no and Waterston was 24no.

Cumbria’s final game is against Shropshire who lost yesterday to Staffordshire.
