v Essex, Chelmsford, Monday 13 September
Essex won by 14 runs
Essex: 271-9 (50 overs) Parry 3-37 (10 overs) Cheetham 3-43 (10) Lilley 2-45 (10)
Lancashire: 257 all out (49.4 overs) Goodwin 82, Agathagelou 53
Match Scorecard

Team: Andrea Agathangelou (capt), Warren Goodwin, Luke Perry, Jordan Clark, Louis Bentley, Stephen Parry, Scott Stanworth (wkt), Arron Lilley, Nick Caunce, Stephen Cheetham, Gary Montgomery

Report - Essex won the toss and made a great start, scoring all round the wicket in a partnership of 73 between Godleman and Westley. The breakthrough came with the last ball of the 15th over when Stephen Parry trapped Westley in front. The spin of Parry, Arron Lilley and Andrea Agathagelou brought Lancashire back in to the game, accounting for the first five wickets, and when Lilley trapped Comber lbw, Essex were in trouble at 136 for 5. The home side recovered with a partnership of 73 for the 6th wicket between Phillips and West. In the last 10 overs Essex scored 87 taking their final score to 271 for 9 in 50 overs. 
 
In reply Lancashire made a positive start with Luke Perry (23) and Warren Goodwin putting on 62 for the 1st wicket.
Agathagelou (53) joined Goodwin to take the score to 154-1 before Goodwin was bowled for 82. At this stage Lancashire were favourites with 118 runs required from 20 overs with 8 wickets in hand, but the loss of both Agathagelou and Jordan Clark (22) with the score at 188 was the start of wickets falling at regular intervals. From 208-4, the loss of three wickets for 6 runs, and an ever increasing required rate, proved decisive with Lancashire dismissed for a disappointing 257 to lose by 14 runs and left to rue the 26 wides they had bowled earlier in the day.

SEMI FINAL
v Middlesex, Radlett, Monday 30 August
Lancashire won by 6 wkts
Middlesex: 159-9 (50 overs) Caunce 3-36 (10 overs) Woolley 2-28 (10) Lilley 2-29 (9) Kerrigan 1-16 (10)

Lancashire: 162-4 (42.2 overs) Goodwin 72, Bentley 32*, Perry 25
Team: Andrea Agathangelou (capt), Warren Goodwin, Luke Perry, Jordan Clark, Louis Bentley, Rob Woolley, Scott Stanworth (wkt), Simon Kerrigan, Arron Lilley, Nick Caunce, Tom Bailey
Report: After winning the toss and electing to bat, Middlesex found themselves in trouble from the start losing both openers in the first over bowled by Nicky Caunce. The rest of the innings proved to be difficult against a tight Lancashire attack which was backed up by some outstanding ground fielding. Caunce (3-36 from 10), Rob Woolley (2-28 from 10), Arran Lilley (2-29 from 9) and Simon Kerrigan (1 - 16 from 10) and Tom Bailey (1-27 from 7 ) all contrbuted as a unit to restrict Middlesex to 159 - 9 from their full allocation of 50 overs.
 
In reply Lancashire asserted themselves early against a strong Middlesex attack. Luke Perry (25) and Warren Goodwin opened with a partnership of 58, and despite the loss of two more wickets before the hundred mark, Goodwin (72) and Louis Bentley (32 not out) saw Lancashire past the 150. The winning runs came after 42.2 overs when Rob Woolley hit the winning boundary.

v Derbyshire, 2ndXI Trophy, Old Trafford, 16 August
Lancashire won by 179 runs
Lancashire won the toss
Lancashire 257-8 (50 overs) Scott Stanworth 46*, Louis Bentley 39, Warren Goodwin 38, Jordan Clark 37, Simon Kerrigan 37
Derbyshire 78 all out (32.3 overs) Rob Woolley 4-25 (off 10), Simon Kerrigan 2-9 (off 9), Nick Caunce 2-17, Daren Powell 2-18
Team: Andrea Agathagelou (capt - pictured above), Warren Goodwin, Luke Perry, Jordan Clark, Louis Bentley, Rob Woolley, Scott Stanworth (wkt), Simon Kerrigan, Arron Lilley, Daren Powell; Nick Caunce

Report
- A comprehensive victory saw Lancashire progress to the last four in the competition. Solid batting by the home side, with 6 batsmen making over 30 runs, helped them to a healthy 257 for 8 wkts in their 50 overs. There were three 50 plus partnerships, the best of which was the 77 added for the 7th wicket between Scott Stanworth (46no) and Simon Kerrigan (37). In reply the Derbyshire batsmen failed to come to terms with the Lancashire attack and were bowled out for 78 in 32.3 overs with spinner Rob Woolley (4-25 off 10 overs) causing the most damage.
This win means Lancashire cannot be overtaken in the North Group table as they have a better head-to-head record against both Durham and Glamorgan should the teams finish level on points

Report:
 Luke Procter took 4-44, Nicky Caunce 2-29 from 8 overs and Stephen Parry 1-21 from 10 overs as Lancashire restricted the home side to 244 for 9. The Lancashire batsmen were made to struggle in reply, with Andrea Agathagelou (73 from 91 balls) and Luke Procter(22) the only ones to come to terms with a deteriorating wicket. Nicky Caunce (30 from 28 balls) made a late effort to win the game after the 9th wicket fell at 199, but Lancashire finished 7 runs short of their target with one over unused.

Leicestershire found the chase hard and only Jones (104) and Adshead (42) made significant scores. A stand of 69 for the 7th wicket was not enough with the bowling honours going to Stephen Parry with 4 for 51 from his 10 overs.

v Nottinghamshire, 2ndXI Trophy, Notts Sports Club, 18 May
Nottinghamshire won by 1 run 
Nottinghamshire won the toss
Nottinghamshire 287-7 (50 overs) Andrea Agathagelou 2-36, Steven Cheetham 2-65
Lancashire 286 all out (50 overs) Karl Brown 104, Gareth Cross 84, Luke Perry 48
Team: Luke Perry, Karl Brown, Andrea Agathagelou, Gareth Cross (capt/wk), Adrian Shankar, Stephen Parry, Chris Tipper, Tom Hardman, Nick Caunce, Steven Cheetham, Gary Montgomery

Report: After winning the toss and electing to bat, the Notts openers Patel and Wood scored freely and had 174 runs on the board before the first wicket fell in the 33rd over. Wood made 83 whilst Patel made 86. Only Ball with a quickfire 43 from 23 balls at the end of the innings made inroads into the Lancashire bowling.

A total of 288 seemed well within reach of the strong Lancashire batting and with a positive start of 88 between Luke Perry (48 from 50 balls) and Karl Brown, all looked good. This improved as Brown (104 from 125 balls) and Cross (84 from 64 balls) took the score  to 230 before the loss of the 3rd wicket with Lancashire looking favouites to win. A batting collapse ensued and with 2 runs needed to win off the last ball of the match, last man Steven Cheetham was bowled.

v Durham, 2ndXI Trophy, Chester-le-Street, 14 May
Lancashire won by 77 runs 
Durham won the toss
Lancashire 299-9 (50 overs) Karl Brown 98, Gareth Cross 55, Chris Tipper 48
Durham 222 all out (43.3 overs) Stephen Parry 4-50, Simon Kerrigan 3-23

Report: Lancashire started badly after being put in, losing two wickets in the first 3 overs to be 12-2. Gareth Cross continued his rich vein of form with 55 in 49 balls, and Karl Brown hit a career best 98 to steer the Lancashire recovery towards a good total, Chris Tipper punished the bowling over the later overs with 48 from 32 balls and Simon Kerrigan chipped in with a run-a-ball 22.

In the Durham reply it was the visitors who started well with wickets for Steven Cheetham and Gary Montgomery. Durham recovered to 85-2 but the introduction of Kerrigan and Stephen Parry destroyed the middle order, Parry with 4-50 and Kerrigan 3-23. From 115-8 Borthwick attacked the Lancashire bowling to make a fine century, and was eventually the last man out for 133, but Durham's 222 never really threatened the Lancashire total.

v North Staffs and South Cheshire League, Porthill Park, 27th April (joint 2ndXI/Academy match)
North Staffs/Sth Cheshire won by 2 wickets
Lancashire  251-7 (50 overs) Stephen Parry 87,  Luke Perry 63
North Staffs/Sth Cheshire  252-8 (50 overs)  Luke Procter 2-15, Muhammad Abid  3-32
Team: LA Perry, SD Parry, LA Procter, L Livingstone, J Dewhurst, T Hardman, A Davies (wkt), SP Cheetham (capt), M Abid, G Griffiths, Y Bhamji

Report: Lancs started steadily moving to 37-0 from the first 10 overs before Parry started to take charge. He fell 13 short of a 100, the score 133 in the 27th over. Wickets fell steadily and the scoring rate slowed but not before Perry made 63 including 4 sixes, Lancs finished on 251-7 from their 50 overs.

North Staffs started well moving onto 49-0 after 8 overs, before Cheetham took a wicket with his first ball of the day. The introduction of Procter further slowed the scoring. Abid joined the fray and picked up 2 wickets in his opening spell of 2-11 from 6 overs, North Staffs 99-4 in the 29th over. Siddique started to take the game away from Lancs with some attacking batting, making 92. Procter's return at the death accounted for Siddique, and needing 14 from the last over , and six from the last ball, the home side completed their win in spectacular style.
