Totesport League D1, Old Trafford: Lancashire 218-3 beat Northamptonshire 215-7 by seven wickets
Lancashire thrashed Northants by seven wickets to move into third place in the Totesport League.
An unbeaten 94 from Mal Loye provided the bedrock of the Lancs innings, together with Stuart Law's 54 and an encouraging workout for Andy Flintoff.
Batting first, Northants struggled to get to grips with the pitch and could only reach 215 from their overs, despite a good 57 from David Sales.
And Lancashire's no-nonsense response saw them home with plenty to spare.
