Shield wins for Cleckheaton and Lightcliffe

Shield wins for Cleckheaton and Lightcliffe


Lightcliffe and Cleckheaton both had convincing wins as they secured their places in next Sunday's Gordon Rigg Priestley Shield first round.

Cleckheaton's seven-wicket victory over near neighbours Scholes sees them visit Farsley in a repeat of last season's semi-final which the Red Lane club won.

Opener Scott Price was a man in a hurry as he hit 85 as his side breezed past the Scholes toal of 114-8. Neil Kellett was top scorer for Scholes with 31 while Elliot Hallas (3-15) was the best Cleckheaton bowler.


Ayan Zafar took 4-24 as Lightclife restricted Ossett to 94-8 before racing to  10-wicket victory. Openers Joran Pickles (52no) and Evan Edwards (30no) shared an unbroken stand of 95 to set up a home tie against Batley.


Spen Victoria's passage to the first round was sealed when rivals Northowram Fields forfeited ther tie. A trip to Tofts Road to face Pudsey St Lawrence awaits Spen Victoria.
