THE Gordon Rigg Premier Division League Cup final between Pudsey St Lawrence and Townville was called off after a member of the Tofts Road club’s bar staff tested positive for Covid-19.

St Lawrence immediately responded by closing their clubhouse and deciding that the match could not go ahead.

It is not yet known whether the match will go ahead at a later date or not.

But the other games on Bradford League finals day did go ahead, and there was joy for both Pudsey Congs and Jer Lane.

Congs were indebted to a couple of teenage sensations for their thumping Division One League Cup final triumph over Birstall.

Seventeen-year-old opener Jacob Slator hit a stunning 128 and 14-year-old Sabir Mahmood made 57 as Congs made 235-4 on their way to an 83-run win.

Slator, who hit four sixes and 15 fours, shared in a second wicket stand worth 158 with Mahmood, as the teenage duo made the most of skipper Richard Jubb’s decision to bat first.

Birstall, whose best bowler was spinner Josh Haynes (3-33) knew they needed a good start if they were to challenge the Congs’ total, but they were soon in trouble at 28-3.

The opening attack of Vinit Patel (2-19) and Jamie Allen (1-16) set the tone for another disciplined Congs bowling performance.

Benedict Gundry (40) and skipper Nick Kaye (37 not out) attempted to revive their side’s fortunes, but Slator had the final word with 3-30 on a day he will not forget in a hurry.

Jer Lane were indebted to their lower-order batsmen as they defeated Sandal by 52 runs in the Division Two final.

Lane were in trouble at 91-6 before Amjid Khan (34), Zeeshan Qasim (33) and Asad Mahmood (30) rallied their side and helped them to 196-9 in their 40 overs.

Brandon Hewlett (3-47) was the most successful bowler for Sandal.

Opener Danny Riley (49) and Ian Shuttleworth (31) battled hard for Sandal but wickets fell at regular intervals as their side were dismissed for 144.

Ibrar Younis (3-26) led the way for the tidy Jer Lane attack.

Finally, Altofts overcame an attack of the jitters to defeat Rodley by five wickets and lift the Division Three Cup.

They looked to be heading for a comfortable win when openers Harry Wilkinson (39) and Dominic Richardson (28) shared a stand of 70 as they replied to Rodley’s 147-9.

But a sudden collapse against the bowling of Gary Sagar (3-24) saw them fall to 99-5 before Adam Perry (21no) and Danny Eden (17no) guided them home.

Rodley, who opted to bat first, found runs hard to come by against Altofts’ frontline bowlers Josh Hen Boisen (3-19) and Danny Eden (3-20).

Only Dan Turbitt (47no) and skipper Rob Young (31) were able to make an impression.
