Farsley crowned Bradford League second-team champions again
Farsley retained their Division One title in the JCT600 Bradford League second-team competition – despite suffering a second loss in 24 hours.
They went down by 31 runs to Woodlands, who are battling with Hanging Heaton for second place, but secured the seven bonus points needed to seal their success.
Phil Walker (67) and Adam Wood (54) powered Woodlands to 226-9. Farsley then faltered after Matthew Green’s exit for 45 and were all out for 195.
Nat Skirrow took 6-32 as Hanging Heaton dismissed Hartshead Moor for 108 in a 95-run win. Howard Ellis (63) had top-scored for Heaton (203) in an innings that saw Jeff Wind (5-33) take a hat-trick.
Baildon had made 218, Chris Reynolds (68) leading the way, while Josh Smith (6-30) bowled well for Saints.
Chris Dyer (80) and Bruce Lunn (71) helped Lightcliffe to 266-5 and Gomersal were dismissed for 181. Tony Blain followed up his century from the previous day with 88, while Craig Lightowler made 59.
Yeadon won a high-scoring game against Bowling Old Lane by nine runs. Ryan Mooney (60) helped Yeadon to 252-9. Fazal Hussain, who took 3-20 for Old Lane, followed up with 69 in his side’s 243-8 reply.
The ten-men of East Bierley (198) eased to a 114-run victory against Morley (84).
Allitt’s 101 ensured Bradford & Bingley gained promotion back to the top-flight at the first attempt, although they were made to scrap after Jason Horsley made 103 in a Brighouse 218 total.
Third-placed Pudsey Congs were frustrated by Spen Victoria’s decision to declare at 117-6 (Mark Loker 55) after 34.5 overs when tempers flared, denying them the chance to earn further bowling points and any batting bonus points. Congs eased to a five-wicket win, with Ashley Slater making 38.
