Norden beat Darwen by 91 runs in Sunday's Lancashire Knockout Cup Final, sponsored by Heineken

Norden lifted their first ever Lancashire Knockout Cup, sponsored by Heineken, as they defeated defending champions Darwen at Heywood Cricket Club on Sunday.

After being asked to bat first on a difficult pitch, Norden posted 146-7 from their 45 overs, Joe Humphreys top scoring with a gritty 42. 

In response, Darwen never got going after Jake Sandham (3-9) removed their top three with just 15 on the board. 

By the time skipper Hasum Malik had claimed 4-14, Norden were nearly home.

A thumping 91-run victory was sealed by Greg Butterworth's final wicket, leaving 2018 winners Darwen stunned and bowled out for 55.
