Norden won through to the last eight in the Worsley Cup when they defeated Colne in an away tie on Saturday. Stags took first knock and reached 110 before Harvey Fitton was caught for 36. Jake Sandham quickly departed following a return catch to Hamza, but Tolley and Dominic Humphreys then creamed the bowling. Humphreys hit nine fours and three sixes before he was out for 73, while Tolley had 12 fours and two sixes to his name as he completed a century before being caught. Greg Butterworth added 15 as quick runs became the name of the game, and wickets did tumble to leave Stags on 256 for eight.
At one stage of the reply Colne were 71 for six, but they managed to reach 204 for nine before the overs ran out, helped by a succession of dropped catches.
Jhangir Liaqat scored 53 and Danny Kegg 52 for Colne.
