Heckmondwike & Carlinghow reach final

Heckmondwike & Carlinghow reach final

Division Three side Heckmondwike & Carlinghow secured their place in the Gordon Rigg Jack Hampshire Cup final with a convincing 94-run win over Northowram Fields.

They will now play Buttershaw St Paul’s who defeated the 2017 winners Hartshead Moor by three wickets, at Pudsey Congs on August 21.

Heckmondwike & Carlinghow followed up their surprise win at Sandal in the previous round by claiming another Division Two scalp.

 Batting first they made 202 with Qamar Shahzad (41no) and Owais Hussain (38) leading the way. Shahzad added 40 for the last wicket with Wasim Khaliq (20) to frustrate Northowram Fields after Australian Harry Hauenstein (4-59) and Josh Dodd (3-41) had posed problems.

Khaliq (3-16) and Muhammad Shahnawaz (3-19) ensured that Northowram Fields never settled when they batted. The visitors were bowled out for 108 to seal another fine win for Heckmondwike & Carlinghow.

Buttershaw St Paul’s were indebted to John Anderson (47no) for enabling to recover from 67-6 to overhaul the Hartshead Moor total of 132. Until he arrived at the wicket, Josh Marsden (4-31) was threatening to win the game for Hartshead Moor.

When they look back on the game, Hartshead  Moor will reflect on a disappointing batting display which saw their last six wickets fall for just 31 runs. Only skipper Chris Wynd (46) made any impression as Adam Wainwright picked up 4-37.
