JER Lane’s challengers continue to stumble, as the Bradford side remain on course for their first-ever Bradford Premier League Premier Division title.

New Farnley were second heading into Saturday’s round of fixtures, but they were left stunned, losing by seven wickets to Townville despite scoring 307-7.

Dushan Vimukthi was the hero for Townville, as he hit an undefeated 109 in his side’s successful chase.

Jer Lane had the opposite result to New Farnley, winning their game by seven wickets against Cleckheaton.

Skipper Yasir Ali (4-32) and Jawad Waheed (3-5) enabled them to bowl out Cleck for just 119, Waleed Akhtar top scoring with 41.

Opener Mosun Hussain made 33 as Jer Lane wrapped up victory with ease.

Woodlands are now second after a comfortable 147-run win at Farsley.

Opener Sam Frankland hit 25 fours as he made 128 out of his side's 335-6, while skipper Brad Schmulian chipped in with 67 not out.

The New Zealander backed up that unbeaten half-century by taking 3-52 in Farsley’s reply, while James Sawyer took 3-16 as the hosts were bowled out for 188.

Campbell Kellaway made an unbeaten 118 as Pudsey St Lawrence defeated Pudsey Congs by just five runs.

The Australian powered his side to 282-6, and though Yohan Mendis (119) and Bilal Butt (95) put on a fourth-wicket partnership of 204 in the reply, Congs fell just short.

Even a century from skipper Ed Brown could not save second bottom Bradford & Bingley from a seven-wicket defeat against Undercliffe.

He made 104, but his teammates failed to give him adequate support in a final total of 215.

Zeeshan Qasim (4-47) and Callum Fletcher (4-67) shared the bowling honours and then it was over to overseas player Sharoon Siraj, who hammered 104 not out, to ensure his side romped home to a big win.

Finally, Ossett bowled out Methley for 173 before easing to a five-wicket win.

Division One leaders Carlton are still sitting pretty at the summit after beating Batley by 65 runs.

Second placed side Baildon returned to winning ways with spinner Seif Hussain taking 4-28 as they bowled out Yeadon for 131 on their way to a five-wicket victory.

East Bierley continued their climb up the table and are now third after a 28-run win over Birstall.

Abdullah Khan (4-44) and Rylea Jones (3-38) enabled them to defend a total of 177.

Bowling Old Lane were dismissed for 148 by Hartshead Moor in a 77-run defeat.

Morley completed the double over Hanging Heaton with a 98-run victory.

Bankfoot's total of 301-8 provided the foundation for their 163-run win over lowly Sandal.

Adam Wainwright (63) and Danny Colehan (53) led the way for Bankfoot, before Sandal were dismissed for a measly 138.

Division Two leaders Gomersal beat rock-bottom Heckmondwike & Carlinghow by seven wickets, but they only chased down a tricky target of 302-4 with three balls to spare.

Gomersal have a 12-point lead over Scholes and Hunslet Nelson, who both won.

Scholes beat falling Crossflatts by 149 runs, while Nelson comfortably defeated Buttershaw St Paul’s by 53 runs.

Lightcliffe coasted to an 80-run victory over East Ardsley, while lowly Keighley are in big trouble after their 100-run defeat to fellow strugglers Hopton Mills.

That leaves Keighley out of the relegation zone on number of wins only.

They and Northowram Fields are both on 88 points, but the latter have won just twice all season, failing to do so again on Saturday, as Altofts beat them by five wickets.

Great Preston made 288-2 on Saturday and the Division Three leaders had no trouble defending that total, bowling out opponents Gildersome & Farnley Hill for just 106.

That heavy defeat leaves Gildersome bottom, but Liversedge are only 10 points above them.

Poor Juned Delair (55) lacked support as Sedge were bowled out for 108 by Wakefield St Michael’s, who went on to win by seven wickets.

Third-bottom Brighouse saw overseas player Saga Sawant make a stunning 138, but his side were bowled out for 239 in a 32-run defeat to second-placed Wrenthorpe.

Windhill & Daisy Hill also extended their winning run by overcoming Crossbank Methodists by 89 runs.

Shoaib Iqbal top scored in their total of 195-9 and took 5-37 as Crossbank Methodists were all out for 106.

Finally, Adwalton beat East Leeds by four wickets and Spen Victoria edged out Streethouse by seven runs.
