He set-up a win by 133 runs over Millom with a sparkling 106 off 77 balls, which included nine fours and six sixes as Millom were put to the sword.

Cockermouth reached 262-9 off their 50 overs with Sam Sharp (35) and Alex Grainger (33) offering best support.

Millom were bowled-out for 129 in 27.1 overs when Danny Fallows top-scored with 23 but Sharp (3-11), Jonathan Norman (2-15), Mark Middleton (2-27) and Gabriel Drimmie (2-29) combined to bowl Cockermouth to victory.

Hindmarch’s former club Carlisle also enjoyed a very good opening-day win when they beat Wigton by 111 runs.

Ben Davidson led the charge with 94, supported by professional Michael Slack (69) and Marc Brown (34) as Carlisle raced to 235-6.

In reply Wigton were bowled-out for 124 with debutant Johnny Westgarth taking 4-33 and Fraser Conn weighing in with 3-29.

The west Cumbrian derby at the Valentine Ground saw hosts Workington beating Whitehaven by 59 runs.

Batting first Workington looked in trouble at 67-5 as veteran Habib Baloch took three wickets (finishing with 4-18) before the hosts rallied.

Callum Sutton (55), Matt Lowden (37), Adam Chambers (20) and Ben Scott (20) got them to 199 off their 50 overs. Stephen Holliday took 3-49.

Whitehaven made a slow start, although 22 from both Dominic Chambers and Leo Sanczuk kept the score ticking along, although behind the required rate.

Three quick wickets from Kris Moffat turned the game Workington’s way and although Steven Holliday added 23 the innings ended on 140-9. Moffat finished with 3-28.

Keswick enjoyed a fine nine-wicket win at Haverigg with Ben Sharp (103no) and William Atkinson (54no) seeing them to victory on 171-1 after losing Arran Davies cheaply.

Earlier Keswick had restricted their hosts to 168-9 which would have been much smaller but for a fine 94 not out from Jordan Postlethwaite.The wickets were shared around.

Cleator were also clear-cut winners on their travels. They bowled-out Lindal Moor for 122 with Darren Clark taking 5-19 and then cruised to victory on 124-2 in 26 overs with Tom Sharp 28 not out..

Furness won the other Premier Division game bowling out visitors Dalton for 167 despite a battling 57 from Dan Sharp. Mark Daley (3-27) was the most effective Furness bowler.

The hosts then stroked their way to 171-2 off 36.3 overs led by Nathan Waterston (63)and Lewis Gribbin (40).
