ALEX Robinson returned career-best figures as Hepworth & Idle made short work of Sutton in Division One of the Craven League.

The 26-year-old took 7-19 as the visitors were skittled for 39 after winning the toss and batting.

Hepworth & Idle, who have climbed to fourth, took only 8.2 overs to pass that target for the loss of one wicket, with Muzaffar Hussain finishing on 27 not out.

Danny Pearson again proved what a valuable team member he is for leaders Bingley Congs at Barrowford.

The Lancastrians were put in and dismissed for 129, with Matty Roberts taking 3-56 and Pearson 3-62, Mohammad Adil chipping in with 2-3.

Pearson then helped Congs to a three-wicket win with an unbeaten 38, Roberts accompanying him with 17 not out after Simon Bailey had scored 26.

However, there was a late flap by Congs as they lost three wickets with the score on 103.

Wilsden are ninth after going down by 62 runs at Cowling, who scored 214-9, with the wickets being shared.

Opener Chris Mitchell (50) and Pete Longley (52) starred in Wilsden’s reply of 152.

Haworth Road Meths are still in a relegation berth after being soundly beaten at Haworth, who made 237-6, despite Tom Kaznowski taking 3-39.

Keeper Fahim Khan top-scored for Meths in their 69 with 19.

Eldwick & Gilstead won their derby at Bingley Congs II to stay second in Division Two.

Sent in, Congs made 116, with veterans Chris Hemsley (25) and Rick Andrews (24) backing up skipper Jimmy Dennison (32) as old foe Arnie Raistrick (4-17) caused a collapse from 82-3, Matthew Rogers taking 3-8.

Steve Timperley again starred with the bat for E&G, hitting 48 not out as they won by six wickets, with Matthew Sharp making 24.

Basement boys Bradford & Bingley, who have lost their last five matches, at least topped 100 for the first time in that sequence, making 141 after opting to bat at Silsden.

Skipper Adam Swallow, as he so often does, led the way with 61, adding 61 for the fifth wicket with Shahbaz Ahmed (27).

Silsden had no problems reaching that target, however, losing just three wickets in 30 overs.

In Division Three, Hepworth & Idle II came unstuck at leaders Thornton-in-Craven.

The visitors only scored 91, with keeper Tom Gadd and skipper Micheal Newell both making 23.

Owen Price then took 3-20, but it was not enough as the hosts won by five wickets in the 32nd over.

Wilsden II did not detain visitors Oakworth II for even that long in going down by eight wickets.

The hosts scored 100-8, a total that was boosted by Tanveer Hussain (34) and Mudassar Riaz (25no), but Oakworth passed that score in the 27th over.

Bingley Congs III have tasted defeat for the first time this season in Division Four in what was a tight contest at Sandy Lane.

Sent in, Congs made 102, with opener Andy Copping scoring 38 and skipper Simon Webster 20.

Leaders Airedale II replied with 103-8, despite 3-17 from Webster.

Hepworth & Idle III were on the wrong end of a shellacking at home to Oakworth III.

The visitors scored 247-5 before rolling over the hosts for 45, with Chris Newell (14) the only player to reach double figures.
