Paceman Matthew Dowse produced a stunning spell of 8-20 to propel Morley to the top of the All Rounder Cricket Bradford Premier League Championship One table.

Wakefield St Michael’s had no answer to the paceman’s new-ball burst as they were shot out for just 50. Mitchell Forsyth (34) was the only batsman to offer any prolonged resistance.

Skipper Matthew Baxter struck an unbeaten 40 as Morley wrapped-up a 10-wicket win which earned them a maximum haul of 20 points.

Gomersal are two points behind Morley after the first two games following their 66-run victory at Ossett.

Bowlers Richard Wear (4-12), Paul Wookey (3-19) and Chris Rhodes (3-40) held the key to their side’s success, combining to dismiss Ossett for 113.

Joe Finnigan top scored with 36 after earlier taking 4-34 as Gomersal made 179 batting first. Left-arm spinner Matthew Varley (3-48) also bowled well while Liam Thomas’s unbeaten 44 proved to be an important contribution for Gomersal.

New signing Yasir Ali produced a match-winning performance for Pudsey Congs as they defeated East Bierley by three wickets.

He took 5-26 as East Bierley were bowled out for 169 and followed up by striking a six and 10 fours in an innings of 95 that dominated the successful run chase.

Sami Ullah’s unbeaten 103 helped Batley to a two-wicket win at Jenny Lane where they chased down Baildon’s score of 173.

Ullah punctuated his innings with four sixes and 11 fours and made sure they got over the line despite the efforts of Simon Bailey (3-38).

The Baildon innings featured a fine knock of 91 from Blair Oakley who countered the menace of the impressive Mohammad Shahnawaz (5-42) and Tariq Hussain (3-48).

Newly-promoted Keighley cruised to a comfortable eight-wicket win at Hartshead Moor. The key to their success was dismissing the home side for 109 when they opted to bat first. Paul Quinlan (4-34) and James Wilmshurst (3-21) did the damage.

Louis Horsfield (43no) and overseas player Alex Antoine (31no) ensured their side reached their target with the minimum of fuss.

Bankfoot, who like Keighley saw no action on the opening day of the season, also registered a comfortable win. They beat Scholes by 63 runs with skipper James Lee leading from the front.

Lee top scored with 57 and was supported by Adam Wainwright (39no) and Hamza Iqbal (30) as a total of 191-9 was posted. The best of the Scholes bowlers was skipper Craig Wood with 5-65.

Scholes were bowled out for 128 in their reply as Shanz Pangige picked up 3-23. The joint top scorers for Scholes were Saif Tahir and Shahid Rehman with 32 each.
