THE Manorlands Plate charity game organised by the Craven League took place at Ingrow CC before a disappointingly sparse crowd.

The annual fixture was between Craven League players representing Yorkshire and Lancashire.

The ground looked a treat, the weather joined in and, on winning the toss, Yorkshire opted to bat first.

There were useful contributions from skipper Mark Price (Ingrow, 25), Nadeem Zaman (Ingrow St Johns, 41) and a hard-hitting 68 from Brannan Lawn (Oakworth). The junior representative in the side, Junaid Jamshed (Wilsden), coped well, making 13 from 36 balls.

But it was not until eighth pair Adam Smith (Oakworth) and Matt Roberts (Bingley Congs) came together that the ball started flying about.

The former player hit two sixes in his 32, while Roberts clattered four sixes and a four in making 34 not out.

The innings closed on 241-8, with Amjid Hussain (Riddlesden) taking 3-51.

Lancashire were then all out for 132 in the 33rd over of their reply, Roberts finishing with 3-16 and Zaman 3-27.

A raffle on the day, and contributions from clubs, took the amount raised to £250.
