SKIPTON stormed to victory over Alwoodley in Division Three of the Aire-Wharfe League after a fine display with bat and ball.

Iqbal Khan (5-22) and Ben Holderness (3-32) restricted Alwoodley to 109 before Holderness (39) and Jack Forrester (40no) eased their side to an eight-wicket win.

Elsewhere, Bardsey shocked runaway leaders New Rover thanks to an incredible performance from Eddie Clayton.

He thrashed 151 not out in his side's 278-8 before taking a top-order hat-trick as the title favourites crumbled to 136 all out.

Chasers Green Lane failed to take advantage, crashing to defeat at St Chads. Neil Britton hit 61 in their 179 but even though the home side were struggling at 37-5, they recovered well to win.

Elsewhere, Mohammed Shoaib hammered 117 to help Thackley to 253-7. Shane Marshall (6-55) ensured Menston only reached 196.

In-form Bolton Villas beat Harden. Daniel Giblin scored a century in Harden’s 219 but Reeham Butt (68) led the successful response.

In Division Two, Addingham’s title challenge suffered a blow when they fell short of Leeds Modernians’ 180, in which Alex Hentschke and Ricky Palacio had each picked up four wickets.

Opener Matthew Hastings had hit 42, but only Palacio (38) caused the opposition bowlers any more trouble as their side were dismissed for 148.

Steeton also lost, going down by eight wickets at home to high-flying Collingham. William Forster (35) helped the hosts to 200 and although Stephen Pearson took two wickets, the visitors cruised home.

Having beaten Colton last week, Calverley’s revival continued dramatically with victory over leaders Tong Park Esholt.

Calverley only posted 186 and although the visitors found it hard against Nav Panesar (4-35), Danny Groom (59) looked as though he had helped secure victory.

But Tom Westerman picked up the final two wickets in consecutive balls to clinch a thrilling three-run victory.

Marco Wyngard (94) eased title challengers Hall Park past Saltaire’s 183-9 while Harry Smallwood (62) helped Olicanian beat Colton by five wickets.

Finally Benjamin Steyn hammered 159 to inspire Ben Rhydding to an 80-run win at Kirkstall.

Meanwhile, in Division One, second-placed Burley blew the title race wide open with a victory over leaders Otley.

Jason Wright picked up 4-60 to restrict Otley to 199-9, despite Jamie Pickering's 63. Burley struggled to 95-5 in reply but then Nicky Bulcock (90no) took over to clinch the five-wicket win.

Rawdon were set 195-7 by third-placed Follifoot and opener George Myers hit 19 boundaries in making 108.

Marcus Berryman added a half century and even though Istikhar Hussain added four wickets to his earlier 56no, Rawdon scrambled home by two wickets.

Ryan Sharrocks starred as Horsforth beat North Leeds. He and Sajad Ali both scored 61 as Horsforth scored 232-8. Sharrocks (4-26) then combined with Haris Mohammad (4-31) to dismiss the visitors for 155.

Oscar Forster scored an unbeaten 99 as Ilkley hammered Beckwithshaw. Their 294-6 was far too good for the struggling defending champions, who could only muster 184-9.

Pool fell 82 runs short of Bilton’s 291-9, while lowly Guiseley lost by eight wickets at Adel after being dismissed for 117.
