METHLEY are the only unbeaten team in the Bradford Premier League Premier Division after fellow fast starters Bradford & Bingley slid to a hefty 180-run defeat against Townville and Farsley also lost.

Methley beat previously unbeaten Ossett by 10 runs in a high-scoring encounter at Little Church Lane.

But Bradford & Bingley were undone when Townville opener Jonny Booth made an unbeaten 151 as his side recovered from 28-4 to post 294-7.

Yasir Abbas (3-32) and Jack Luxton (3-84) were the most successful bowlers for the visitors.

Bradford & Bingley struggled in reply against a Townville attack boosted by Yorkshire paceman Ben Coad (3-29).

Only skipper Ed Brown (70no) looked at ease as his side crumbled to 114 all out. The rout ensured Townville's first win of the season.

Meanwhile, Bankfoot recorded their second win on the trot as they chased down a Batley score of 227 to record a six-wicket win. Spinners Zia Ul Haq Parwani (4-57) and Seif Hussain (4-41) held the key to their latest success.

The Bankfoot reply was dominated by skipper James Lee (79no) and Parwani (55) as they eased to another comfortable victory.

New Farnley bounced back from their defeat at Farsley last week with a crushing 10-wicket win over rock-bottom Cleckheaton.

Farsley's unbeaten start to the league campaign came to an end as local rivals Pudsey St Lawrence defeated them by four wickets at Tofts Road.

Woodlands had to show all their battling qualities to pull off a 16-run win over Hanging Heaton. A total of 146 did not look sufficient (Tom Clee 44), but the champions defended their modest score.

That was thanks to skipper Brad Schmulian, who took 5-24 with his leg spin as the visitors were dismissed for 130 to incur their third successive defeat.

In Division One, Carlton maintained their 100 per cent start to the season after brushing aside East Ardsley by 89 runs.

There is just no stopping Undercliffe's free-scoring opener Oliver Hardaker. Last year he was the only batsman to top 1,000 runs and who would bet against him repeating the feat after scoring 134 not out to guide his side to a three-wicket win at Pudsey Congs.

Zeeshan Qasim (4-49) and Gopal Makwana (4-58) posed the main threat when Undercliffe were bowling.

With two centuries in his first two games, Australian Noah McFadyen is looking an inspired signing for Keighley.

McFadyen hit eight sixes and nine fours while making an unbeaten 142 as he shared an unbroken third wicket stand of 248 with Nathan Storton as Keighley piled up 345-2 on their way to a 110-run win over Morley.

Storton hit four sixes and 10 fours while making an unbeaten 104 as the Morley attack conceded over 300 runs for the second successive game.

Morley, who are currently 11th in the table, finished on 235-7 in reply.

Birstall bowled out bottom side Wrenthorpe for 88 to secure a 25-run win.

Liam Fletcher made a superb 105 to power Gomersal to an eight wicket win over East Bierley.

Opener Alex Stead made an unbeaten 103 as Lightcliffe recorded their third straight win to open a 13-point lead at the top of Division Two.

Lightcliffe passed Great Preston's score of 223 for the loss of just three wickets.

Skipper Chris Wynd made a sparkling 117 not out as Hartshead Moor breezed to a seven-wicket win at Highmoor Lane against Hopton Mills.

Farhan Hussain (91) and Hazrat Abbas (33no) were the key men as Bowling Old Lane overhauled the Buttershaw St Paul's score of 208-9 to record a four-wicket triumph.

Amer Ayoub's unbeaten 98 was the highlight of the St Paul's innings while Saad Khan impressed with the ball for Old Lane to claim 4-31.

Bradley Wood (76) and Ashley Hale (56mo) powered Wakefield St Michael's to a seven-wicket win after Conor Andrews (6-48) had impressed with the ball as Yeadon were dismissed for 206.

Matty Waller continued his outstanding start to the season by making 114 as Division Three leaders Adwalton recorded their third straight win with a 205-run success over Rodley, who were skittled for just 50 as Tom Davidson took 6-22.
