Woodlands and Wrenthorpe continue to set the pace in the top flight of the Bradford Premier League after recording wins on another rain-hit day

It was an afternoon which saw no fewer than six Yorkshire county players in action and they experienced vastly contrasting fortunes.

Leg spinner Josh Poysden marked his debut for Farsley by taking 6-21, yet could not save his side from an 11-run defeat against Wrenthorpe.

After bowling out Wrenthorpe for 103 it looked as if Farsley could finally register their first win, but their fragile batting cracked again as they were dismissed for 92. Khalil Khan took 3-20 and Will Bates 3-2.

Another White Rose player making his Bradford Premier League bow was opening batsman Harry Brook, who was in the Bradford & Bingley side that defeated Methley by three wickets in a close encounter at Wagon Lane.

Brook top-scored with 32 as Bradford & Bingley edged past Methley’s 120 all out, Grant Soames top scoring with 34, to win by three wickets despite the efforts of his county colleague Jarred Warner (4-35). Yorkshire’s Matthew Waite was also in bottom-of-the-table Methley’s side.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore made his first appearance of the season for Cleckheaton, but in the week in which he captained the White Rose for the first time, he was dismissed first ball in his side’s four-run win over Lightcliffe.

Kohler-Cadmore was stumped by Josh Cooper and was one of the victims of left arm spinner Suleman Khan (5-53) as Cleckheaton scored 162-9. Former Durham and Lancashire player John Wood led the way with 40.

Despite a spirited 53 not out from former Cleckheaton player Mark Gill, Lightcliffe were bowled out for 158 with left-arm spinner Andrew Deegan taking 5-64.

It was quite a day for the left-arm spinners with the mercurial Chris Brice taking 5-47 as Woodlands inflicted a first defeat of the season on Hanging Heaton to cement their place as joint leaders with Wrenthorpe on 42 points.

Hanging Heaton’s innings was disrupted by rain as they posted a total of 140-7 in 38 overs. Their top scorer was James Keen on 31.

Woodlands were set a Duckworth Lewis Stern target of 152. Opener Tim Jackson set them on the way with 52 while Elliot Richardson got them over the line with a breezy 20 not out.

Pudsey St Lawrence, who had Yorkshire’s Jordan Thompson in their line-up, were indebted to young leg spinner Archie Scott for setting up their six-wicket win at Undercliffe.

Scott took 5-44 as Undercliffe were bowled out for 122 when they batted first. The league champions eased to their target with wicketkeeper Charlie Best, promoted to opener, making an unbeaten 47. Fahid Rehman took 3-19 for second-bottom Undercliffe.

It continues to be a frustrating start to the league campaign for highly-fancied New Farnley. They were live streaming their game with Townville on YouTube but it was streams of water that won the day as play was abandoned with Townville 119-6. It means that New Farnley remain without a win.
