NICK Mumford’s incredible start to the season continued on Saturday as Barrow moved up to third in Division Two with a narrow home win over Lymm Oughtrington Park.
Mumford snaffled 7-37 to take his wicket tally for the term up to 25 in just five matches.
After restricting the hosts to 148-8, Park simply had no answer to the on-fire left-arm spinner.
The dependable Julian Shaw (37) top-scored for Barrow, whose hopes of victory were seemingly dead in the water after the visitors made their way to 53-1 after 13 overs.
But Mumford had other ideas and, with Dave McClements taking the key wicket of Phil Whelan, his variation and guile left the visitors fell 12 runs short on 136.
KINGSLEY are looking up after Travis Martin inspired them to a 167-run home success over Aston.
Promoted to number three following the late withdrawal of vice-captain Mark Butcher, the all-rounder hit 87no in an unbeaten fourth-wicket partnership of 144 with skipper Kieron Ollier (72no) as Kingsley raced to 209-3.
Martin then returned incredible figures of 5-4 from eight overs to rip Aston apart for 42, with Peter Pearce (5-20) doing the rest of the damage.
CHOLMONDELEY (119-8) were two-wicket winners at home to Romiley (115).
