BINGLEY Congs were a team in a hurry when they travelled to Sutton in Division One of the Craven League.

Leaders Congs were asked to bowl, but dismissed the basement boys for just 99 after they collapsed from 56-1.

Matty Roberts (5-25), Mohammad Adil (3-29) and Neil Copping (2-12) proved a potent trio.

Then, after tea, overseas player Johandre Barnard found his feet at last in scoring 65 not out, including six fours and four sixes, as Congs passed their target without loss, with keeper George Hicks making 22 not out.

Hepworth & Idle are fourth, 19 points behind Congs, after defeating visitors Haworth Road Meths.

The latter chose to bat, but only made 123, which was good considering that they were 67-6 as Paul Rodwell (31) and skipper Andy Gudgeon (21) chipped in.

Jonathan Robinson (3-19) and Alex Robinson (3-37) were again among the wickets, as was Simon Raistrick (2-5), who then scored 24 in a six-wicket victory as they were seen home by Mudassar Hussain (52 not out off 58 balls, including eight fours and a six).

He added 57 unbroken with Tom Gadd (13no).

Wilsden are ninth after suffering a six-wicket defeat at Haworth.

Sent in, the visitors made 106, with skipper Chris Longley (24) and Hasnat Bukhari (29) among the runs.

In Division Two, Eldwick & Gilstead dropped to third behind Silsden after an 81-run defeat at Long Lee, who made 199, despite Jordan Bayliss taking 5-46 and Matthew Sharp 3-61.

Ajeet Singh (33) and captain Arnie Raistrick (39) were lone stars with the bat for E&G, who were toppled for 108, reviving from 10-4 but collapsing from 99-5.

Bradford & Bingley III won their derby with cellar dwellers Bingley Congs II to move out of a relegation berth.

Shahbaz Ahmed dominated B&B’s 192-7 at Beckfoot Lane, hitting an unbeaten 117 off 92 balls, including 10 fours and eight sixes and adding 77 for the fifth wicket with Abdullah Hussain (15).

The persevering Towhid Ali took 3-56 for Congs, with Asher Nutting bagging 2-12.

Andy Blackburn then scored 40 and Chris Hemsley 21 in Congs’ reply of 155, with Farhan Khalid taking 3-37.

Hepworth & Idle’s second team were in the runs at Skipton CI II’s, making 236-5, thanks to Mark Davies (96), Malcolm Kershaw (40) and Chris Hawksworth (35).

Swaraj Thakur’s 5-69 then helped the Westfield Laners send back CI for 154.

Wilsden II look to be in a relegation battle with four other clubs and lost by five wickets at home to Haworth II after making 96, Tanveer Hussain top-scoring with 26.

Haworth were in trouble at 42-5 after Luke Stableford (4-24) got among them, but the Brontelanders were seen home by an unbroken stand of 55.

Bingley Congs III’s lead at the top of Division Four has been cut to four points, despite them defeating Ingrow II by 49 runs in a low-scoring contest at Sandy Lane.

No.10 Sam Higgins’ 23 was vital for Congs in their 113 before Andy Greenwood (5-20), Ghulam Murtaza Butt (3-18) and Andy Copping (2-3) dismissed the visitors for 64.

Hepworth & Idle II were on the end of a heavy defeat against Glusburn II, who made 309-8.

The third team were then dismissed for 120, despite 53 by opener Bradley Elliott as they collapsed from 83-3 to 89-8.
