Furness completed a League and Cup double in the final game of the 2021 season.
Already crowned the Cumbria League’s Premier Division champions Furness added the Robin Dunn Memorial Trophy after beating Workington in the League’s T20 final.
Workington themselves were looking for a double as they had already beaten Furness in the Higson Cup final.
Nathan Waterston – the former Workington Reds forward – was the one who thwarted the west Cumbrians with a man of the match performance which saw his side over the finish line.
Waterston was 52 not out when Furness reached 119-5 from 18.2 overs to clinch the win after they had been set to chase Workington’s 117-9.
It was a fitting win in many ways as Robin Dunn had been a former Furness captain and highly respected club official before his death.
In their semi-final Furness had made 102-4 against Cockermouth in a game reduced to 12 overs aside.
Opener Ryan Griffiths was unbeaten with 55 while Cumbria county player Sam Sharp took 3-18 for Cockermouth.
Such is the way of cricket, Cockermouth opener Alex Grainger. who had scored 155 the previous day, was out first ball and the Sandair side never really recovered. They could manage only 77-7 from their 12 overs.
Sharp (17no) and Paul Hindmarch (17) were Cockermouth’s main contributors while Garry Thompson took 3-13 for Furness.
Workington were comfortable winners of their semi-final with Dalton in a game which was reduced to 10 overs a side.
The west Cumbrians made 102-2 and restricted Dalton to 54-4 in reply.
