1st XI lost at fellow division 2 strugglers Tarleton. Batting 1st they set 175-8, Curt Morris with an excellent 80. At one point it looked like 200 was on but a mini collapse ended those hopes. It proved to be costly as Tarleton managed to reach the target in the 44th over, despite the best efforts of the Dale bowling attack.
2nd XI managed a win however, local rivals Hoghton setting 107 to win. Dale knocked it off 6 down on a bowling wicket, Hoghton made it a tricky chase. Captain Neil Harvey top scoring with 21.
