TONG Park Esholt head into the final day of the Aire-Wharfe League Division One season still only a point clear of the relegation zone.

Even a win on the final day might not be enough to save them, after they lost their penultimate clash at home to Bradford rivals Saltaire by 72 runs.

After Awaise Hussain (61) had teed up the Saltaire innings nicely, Jibrael Malik hit 53 not out.

But the star of the show was Adbi-Hasan Ahmed, who came in at No.8 and thrashed 73 off just 28 balls before being dismissed off the final ball of the innings.

That gave Saltaire a total of 270-7 and despite a fine 77 from Fawad Maqsood in the reply, Tong Park could only make 198 all out.

Steeton remain in the final promotion spot in Division Two, four points clear of chasing Ilkley, after beating Bardsey by 38 runs.

Bolton Villas moved 14 points clear of the relegation zone ahead of the final day, following a crucial 76-run win over rock-bottom Kirkstall Educational.

Bilal Ahmed made light of any pressure with a stunning knock of 141, which allowed the Bradford side to post 276 all out.

Mobeen Qureshi then took 5-63 as Kirkstall could only make 200 in reply.

Harden are almost up, but require three points to guarantee promotion on the final day of the Division Three season after losing by 61 runs to Collingham & Linton’s seconds.

Mid-table Thackley won a thriller against Skipton by one wicket.

Mohammed Shoiab took 5-28 to help dismiss Skipton for 201 and though Aston Dalladay hit 52 in the reply, the Bradford side’s goose looked cooked when they fell to 130-7.

But Craig Wiseman scored a crucial 38 down the order, as Thackley scrambled over the line.

Finally, in Division Four, fourth-placed Bingley Congs enjoyed a nine-wicket win at Steeton’s seconds.

Harry Treloar took 4-34 for Congs, before Charles Ramsey struck 99 in the reply as the visitors romped home inside 30 overs.
