Nick writes: A cracking game of cricket played under weather that wouldn’t be out of place in July took place for the last time this season between two local rivals.  This fixture was an opportunity for Carlisle to hammer the last nail so to speak in Scotby’s coffin for what has been a tough, successful and not so successful season. Scotby knew nothing other than eight points would be enough to have an outside chance of staying up.

It started well for Scotby after winning the toss inserted Carlisle on what looked a good track.  The Carlisle batsmen got off to a flyer as 25 runs were leaked off the normally reliable Dan Swann’s first two overs. Scotby kept plucking away and dismissed both openers in consecutive overs to restore some parity. At 62-3 the game was fairly even but had brought the dangerous pair of Burnett and Trickett to the crease, they promptly put on a stand of 91 runs, although scratchy at the beginning Burnett (23) stayed with Trickett to put Carlisle in a commanding position. Unfortunately for them some late wickets kept the score which at one point threatened two twenty plus. 

In reply after instructions to go bat positively and enjoy the game both openers played well taking the Scotby score to 51-0 after 10 overs.  The loss of Farrer (31) brought A Crellen (28) to the crease and he seemed to enjoy the freedom as he and Jefferson continued to score well. The introduction of Plevin into the attack restricted Scotby’s scoring rate and the pressure told as three wickets fell in quick succession. A period of consolidation from Vasey and Nicholls kept Scotby up with the rate and wasn’t long before Nicholls began to time the ball to all parts with some lovely strokes. The loss of Vasey didn’t slow or restrict the flow of runs as Teasdale continued to support Nicholls before finishing the game in style with a six off Whitfield to win. 

Mixed emotions at the conclusion to the day as Scotby, relying on results going their way knew that it wasn’t to be and so will entertain and visit some new teams next season. Congratulations to Temple Sowerby on winning the Premier League this season in what has turned out to be a competitive league and a record points haul for a relegated team. Time to rest those bodies and I'm sure the skippers will be glad they no longer have to find eleven players for this year at least.

Keith writes: Totally out of the blue and courtesy of a home win over Wigton II’s and a deluge at Kirkby Stephen, Keswick II’s won promotion to the Premier Division and are now looking forward to life at the top after battling their way through the ranks from Division Three. The celebrations were long and fun-filled at Fitz Park on Saturday night, and, joining in the general mayhem were the 'very happy' band that is Rockcliffe CC (by the Sea) who were on their end of season Eden Valley tour after winning promotion and the Division One title the previous Saturday.
The Rockcliffe CC touring party - with Colin Carter as Master of Ceremonies - arrived unexpectedly at Fitz Park after starting out at the Crown and Thistle, Rockcliffe and taking in Kirkby Stephen (pre monsoon) Appleby, Kirkoswald and, I think, Stainton. But it was all a bit of a blur by that point and they could have been in Patterdale. They were, of course, mostly very tired and emotional by the time they got to Keswick, some more tired and emotional than others; just in time to see Keswick pull the promotion rabbit out of the hat (thanks to Bugs Bunny aficionado Jimmy Freebairn for that one). However, it was great to see Rockcliffe doing the rounds and, in doing so, epitomising what the Eden Valley and certainly Division One has been all about this season, good competition on the field of play and lots of camaraderie and great banter off it.
Keswick's hero of the hour was undoubtedly Ben Sharp who recorded his best ever figures from ten overs of leg spin to dismiss a more than useful Wigton II for a modest total. Charlie Robson also bowled well, his medium pace away swingers claiming two wickets, Steve Moss took a sharp catch behind and a stumping while some old sod at first slip managed to hang on to a screamer high to his left to end the Wigton innings after dropping a much simpler chance earlier in what was to prove the final over of the innings. Six Wigton batsmen got in but none went on to make the sort of score that might have tilted the game their way and actually won them promotion on another day.
Sharp was also in the thick of the battle when Keswick replied and made an accomplished half century which included ten boundaries before being given out LBW. Captain Graeme Dixon added an important and watchful 28. There were one or two wobbles and a lot of gnashing of teeth on the pavilion patio before the old head that is Steve Clark and the more youthful Charlie Robson saw Keswick home with six wickets down and with time and overs to spare. Full credit to this youthful Wigton team on an excellent season and the competitive way they play the game under the excellent leadership of off break bowler Stuart Ward. They will certainly be in contention in the seasons to come.
Looking ahead to next season, Colin 'The Big Chip' Carter says that he is already making arrangements for an Eden Valley Cricket League first in 2015. He is making plans for his Rockcliffe by the seas CC team to travel to Fitz Park for next season's away fixture in a chartered helicopter. They were planning to travel to Kirkby Stephen by copter this season but the flight had to be cancelled at the last minute when the copter was needed elsewhere on urgent business. To coincide with this momentous event KCC is making arrangements for a fly past by the Red Arrows during the match.
And finally this week and this season, a big thank you to all the clubs and teams, club officials, groundsmen, scorers and (last but certainly not least) tea ladies and pub landlords we have encountered while playing in Division One and all the wonderful hospitality that has been extended on our travels. We are only sorry that both matches against Langholm were rained off, especially in this year of Independence - or not.  And a big thank you to all those senior officials who are responsible for helping to make the EVCL the greatest little cricket league in the world.
