Share this article

A MARATHON bowling spell by Ben Simm ensured Lancaster took 15 points from their first game of the season at Lune Road.

Bowling unchanged for 25.1 overs, Simm took 5-29 as Blackpool capitulated from the unrelenting pressure.

At the toss Blackpool skipper Paul Danson elected to bowl on a slow and low Lune Road pitch.

Michael Stevens lost his opening partner Tim Barry early on, resulting in Stevens and sub-pro for the day Luke Perry rebuilding and battling to 22-1.
