OSSETT continued their good start to the season by recording a 92-run win over Bradford & Bingley in the Bradford Premier League Premier Division.

Skipper Nick Connolly (51) and Matthew Race (57) helped the third-placed Premier Division new boys to 235.

Bradford & Bingley struggled in reply with only skipper Ed Brown (35) making an impression as Marcus Walmsley (4-34) helped his side wrap up a satisfying third win.

Opener Jason Marshall hit his second successive century as leaders Methley bagged a maximum 20 points from a comfortable five-wicket win over Bankfoot.

Marshall finished 100 not out after striking two sixes and 14 fours.

Wicketkeeper Dan Hodgson hit an unbeaten 116 from 105 balls to propel New Farnley to 263-5 and followed up by taking five catches as Batley were dismissed for 78.

An unbeaten 68 from James Glynn enabled Townville to recover from 75-5 to inflict a fourth defeat of the season on Hanging Heaton.

Glynn received support from Tom Brook (32) in a stand of 86 for the sixth wicket which effectively ended any hope the home side had of defending their score of 175 and registering their first win.

Hanging Heaton found the going tough after being put in against Townville.

Josh Wheatley (45) and Callum Bethel (39) looked settled as Conor Harvey (4-48) and Jack Hughes (3-49) posed the main threat.

Townville moved up to fifth with their four-wicket win while Hanging Heaton are just two points above bottom team Cleckheaton.

Woodlands are fourth after registering their third win with a 43-run triumph over Farsley. The defending champions took advantage of choosing to bat first at Red Lane as they compiled a total of 271-6.

Farsley at least had the consolation of securing maximum batting points as they finished on 228-8.

St Lawrence recorded their third win by bowling out Cleckheaton for 106 to secure a 20-run triumph at Moorend. Skipper Chris Marsden led the way with 5-37 as winless Cleckheaton remained rooted to the bottom of the table.

Yorkshire batsman Tom Kohler-Cadmore, making his first appearance of the season for Cleckheaton, top scored with 22, but when he departed his side's hopes seemed to go with him.

Meanwhile in Division One, Farakh Hussain blasted an unbeaten 123 as Jer Lane raced to a seven-wicket win against Keighley to maintain their 100 per cent start to the season.

Hussain blasted 11 sixes and 11 fours as his side made light work of overhauling Keighley’s total of 179.

Nathan Storton made 74 for the visitors but Cosmond Walters (3-9) and Mohammed Jamal (3-41) ensured that the league leaders were in control to continue their winning run.

Carlton are just one point behind Jer Lane after taking the last nine Undercliffe wickets for 39 runs to pull off an 18-run win.

Nick Schofield (77) and Daniel Syme (68) were the unlikely batting heroes as Gomersal recovered from 50-7 to secure a 32-run win against Pudsey Congs.

Opener Jack Rowett’s unbeaten 74 guided Morley to a seven-wicket win over East Ardsley – their first league triumph of the season.

Kevin McDermott (89) and Jonny Reynolds (59no) shared 133 for the second wicket as Baildon powered to an eight-wicket win over bottom team Wrenthorpe.

Juned Delair (4-38) and Dave McCallum (4-39) helped Birstall dismiss East Bierley for 176 to complete a 100-run win at South View Road.
