Old guard lead way for Hanging Heaton

Old guard lead way for Hanging Heaton


Hanging Heaton’s old guard enabled them to keep a firm grip on the Premier Division leadership with important contributions in their 20-run win at East Bierley.

Wicketkeeper Craig Russell, pictured above, hit an unbeaten 58 which enabled them to make 182-7 before Mick Horner (4-23) and Nick Bresnan (4-40) helped bowl out East Bierley for 162.

Alex Monaghan took 5-43 in the Hanging Heaton innings which featured 37 from Will Rich. David Evans top scored with 80 for East Bierley.

Pudsey St Lawrence returned to second place after a five-wicket win over bottom team Lightcliffe. Jordan Moore was their key performer taking 5-33 and scoring 46 not out.

Moore was backed up by David Heslop (3-24) as Lightcliffe were dismissed for 143, young Daniel Clough making 30. Opener Jonty Mighell (31) and Moore ensured that St Lawrence had little trouble knocking off the runs.

There were two centuries in the game at the Barry Jackson Ground as New Farnley defeated visitors Morley by 95 runs.

Tom Lilley hit two sixes and 14 fours while making 100 not in as the home side scored 273-3. Andy Langley (56), Chris Sowden (47no) and Joe Pyrah (33) also made important contributions.

Gavin Goodlad dominated the Morley reply of 178-9 with a hard hit 101 which contained six sixes and seven fours. Aryan Singh (36) was the next highest scorer as leg spinner Jack Dyson (5-34) and off spinner Lewis Lomax (3-49) got among the wickets.

It has been a profitable Bank Holiday for Bankfoot who defeated Batley by two runs to record their second win of the weekend.

Shanz Prangige (55) and Haroon Iqbal (33) dominated Bankfoot’s total of 123 as Saqib Talib picked up 5-43. It looked a modest score, but it soon began to look more challenging as Batley lost their first three wickets without a run on the board.

Vakas Mirza (52) almost turned the game in his side’s favour but Iqbal (4-25) and Atta ur Rehman (3-46) ensured Bankfoot held their nerve in a tight finish to dismiss the visitors for 121.

Woodlands also bagged their second win in three days as they romped to a seven-wicket win over a Bowling Old Lane side that started the day in second place.

Kieran Rodger (4-13) and Tom Clee (3-45) helped dismiss Old Lane for 109 while Kieran Collins (41no) guided Woodlands safely to their victory target.

Yeadon’s promising young batsman Simeon Pickering made 63 to help them to 168-8 as they defeated Gomersal by 11 runs. Jordan Bloom (3-25) was the best Gomersal bowlers while Javid Umarji (54no) was top scorer in their 157 all out. Paul Machell was the main bowler for Yeadon with 4-29.
