Cieran Garner won’t forget his first season as captain in a hurry after leading Woodlands to a Premier Division championship and Priestley Cup double.

His team secured their seventh Bradford Premier League title with an 81-run win over Undercliffe at Intake Road – the ground where they lifted the cup three weeks earlier.

Opener Tim Jackson (71) played the lead role while Brad Schmulian (33) and Sam Frankland (32) both chipped in with valuable runs as they posted a score of 223-6.

Derbyshire off spinner Mark Watt (3-81) was the most successful Undercliffe bowler and chipped in with 35 as his side were bowled out for 152. Opener Simon Lambert top scored with 55 but could not prevent Woodlands from securing their 13th win of the season.

Townville climbed into second place and are look set for their highest Premier Division finish after a thrilling one-wicket win over the 2018 champions Pudsey St Lawrence.

Harry Warwick hit an unbeaten 69 to guide them past the St Lawrence score of 176-9 with one ball to spare. Alex Page (33) chipped in with valuable runs after spinners Archie Scott (4-52) and returning skipper Chris Marsden (3-31) threatened to turn the game the home side’s way.

Harry Cullingford (56) top scored in the Saints innings while overseas player Imran Rafique (5-27) was the pick of the Townville bowlers.

Lightcliffe will need to win their last two games, at home to Methley and away at Pudsey St Lawrence, and rely on other results going their way after their four-wicket defeat by second-bottom Wrenthorpe.

The win was a welcome boost for Wrenthorpe in their bid to stay in the top-flight for a second season and they have their overseas player Khalil Khan to thank for their latest win.

After taking 3-8 to support the efforts of Ollie Kilburn (3-21) as Lightcliffe were bowled out for 112, Khan rescued his side from 7-3 with a superb inning of 70. Ibrar Younis took 3-27 in the Wrenthorpe innings.

The result puts Wrenthorpe on 163 points, 24 ahead of Lightcliffe and within striking distance of Methley and Undercliffe on 169 and 170 respectively.

Methley continued their great escape with a five-wicket win over a Farsley signed weakened by the absence of overseas player Pat Kruger and their two Yorkshire players, Josh Poysden and James Logan.

In contrast, Methley were boosted by the presence of their Yorkshire duo of Matthew Waite and Jared Warner, who is currently on loan at Sussex.

Warner took 4-36 as Farsley were restricted to 161-8, James Pickles making their top score of 40. Jordan Laban (53) and Waite (31) helped Methley stave off the threat of paceman Matthew Simpson (3-50) to record another important win.

Charlie Parker made an unbeaten 43 with the bat and followed up with 5-30 as New Farnley recorded a 39-run win at Cleckheaton.

Alex Lilley (55) and Adam Waite (35) were the other main contributors to the visitors’ score of 193-6 at Moorend.

Toby Thorpe battled hard to make an unbeaten 63 for Cleckheaton, who finished on 154-9 after Parker’s intervention with the ball.
