SALTAIRE cashed in against bottom-of-the-table Bilton in the Aire-Wharfe League Premier Division.

Sent in, the men from Roberts Park were wobbling at 58-3 until Jibrael Malik (92) put on 190 for the fourth wicket with Sandeep Singh (101).

That stand propelled Saltaire to 278-9, and there were no worries for them in the second innings as Bilton were rolled over for 126, Ihsan Ihsanullah taking 4-36 and Nasir Shah 3-26.

Tong Park Esholt remain third from bottom after being defeated at Horsforth Hall Park, despite making 263-6 after being sent in in a game that was reduced to 48 overs per side.

Skipper Dave Hester (67) and Fawad Maqsood (65) were the main contributors to that total, and Hall Park were floundering on 40-4 in reply.

But a stand of 120 between Michael Loubser (127 not out) and Andy Bairstow (65) turned the match around as the hosts won by two wickets with five overs to spare.

In Division One, Calverley breathed new life into their survival bid by notching only their second victory of the season.

In their derby at home to Bolton Villas, Calverley won the toss and made 204-9, despite Mahboob Hussain (3-18) cleaning up the tail impressively.

Villas were in heaps of trouble at 32-6 after tea, but did get to 142 thanks to Suliman Ali (70)

Bingley Congs, who remain fourth, continued their strong start to life in Division Two with a 26-run win at Alwoodley.

However, things might have been very different had teenage keeper Jacob Rees not scored 68 to rescue them from 98-8, finding a willing partner in No.10 Alex Bradbury (32), who put on 96 with him.

Alwoodley were then dismissed for 188, as Bradbury took 5-40 and Neil Copping 3-43.

Thackley won for only the second time this season to move 16 points clear of the drop zone.

They chose to field at Horsforth and restricted the hosts to 171-7, Craig Wiseman dismissing four of the top five on his way to 4-24 off 15 overs.

The visitors were 13-2 but found a hero in Muhammad Shoaib, who scored 72 to help take them to a two-wicket victory.
