FOULRIDGE are the new leaders of Mewies Solicitors Craven and District League Division One after an emphatic 191-run victory at Sutton-in-Craven.

Mohammad Yaqoob was in blistering form for Foulridge as he smashed 15 sixes and 11 fours in a knock of 158. He put on 148 for the fourth wicket with Chris Brooker-Carey (62) as the innings closed on 321-6. Dave Snowden managed 3-58.

In reply, shell-shocked Sutton could only manage 130 with Snowden (46) top scoring as Muhammad Atique (4-45) and Zain Abbas (3-11) took the bowling honours.

In second spot are Denholme who again proved to be a thorn in Embsay’s side.

Embsay batted first and were restricted to 85 with Sam Arkwright making 19 as Ryan Judson (6-34) bowled well.

Third are Haworth Road Methodists, who entertained Cowling. Methodists posted 141 all out with Will Burgess making 32 as Mohammed Zulfiqar (3-15) and Liam Foulkes (3-48) doing most of the damage.

Cowling could only muster 78 in reply, led by Foulkes (17) as Shahid Saleem (5-21) and Zahir Abbas (4-12) ensured there were no slip-ups.

Crossflatts lost their unbeaten record and slip to fourth after tumbling to a 59-run defeat at Haworth.

Haworth were indebted to a rearguard action by opener Peter Gower who finished undefeated on 54no. Wasim Hussain (4-36) and Mayank Singh (3-27) ensured Haworth were restricted to 130-9.

Crossflatts never got to grips with the situation and were dismissed for 71 with Kieran Temprill making 17, as under-16 Oliver Bishop took 4-28.

Oakworth’s poor start to the season looked to be carrying on as they stood at 67-6 as home to Barrowford.

Then Jordan Powell blasted 104, four fours and 12 sixes, to go with Jack Davison’s 58 and the innings closed on 259-7.

Barrowford batted well and closed just 17 runs short of their target with Imran Akhtar (56) and Aziz Iqbal (54) leading the way.

Bingley Congs held all the aces as they walloped Ingrow by 108 runs. Johandre Barnard (54) and Neil Copping (51) helped Bingley Congs to 180. Ingrow replied with 72 with Mohammad Adil and Copping both bagging 3-18.

Meanwhile, Sandy Lane are the Division Two leaders after they beat Bradford & Bingley III by three wickets at Wagon Lane.

Bradford & Bingley recorded 128-8 with Andy Dobson (31) top scoring as Laiq-Ur Rehman claimed 3-26.

It took fighting knocks from Zahid Hussain (48no) and Monadi Ahmad (43) to get Sandy Lane over the line.

Gargrave are second after their game against Eldwick & Gilstead was abandoned because of safety concerns with the playing surface.

Another game to be abandoned was Barrowford II v Wilsden but not before they got well into the second innings.

Wilsden made 184-8 declared with Chris Longley making 60 and Hasnat Bukhari 33no as Majid Khan took 4-31.

Barrowford struggled to 7-3 before progressing to 40-3 off 21 overs when play was called off.

Cononley reached the winning post in their game with Haworth Road II with just four balls to spare.

Will Forrest (46) and Ian Robson (37) helped Haworth Road to 210-9 as Lewie Fitton took 4-39. Cononley had Herbie Starkey (63) and Andy Starkey (30) to thank mainly for their reply of 216-5.

Crossflatts II were too strong for Airedale, winning by 44 runs.

Ben Hinchcliffe (38) helped Crossflatts to 150 as Chris Gill took 5-27. Airedale slumped to 56-7 before number eight Simon Hunter made 44no to add a bit of respectability to the score.

Scott Kershaw (3-13) and Charlotte Boulton (3-27) were the best bowlers

Jason Sims (82) and Thomas Hawksworth (80) put on 131 for the first wicket which set the platform for an impressive 263-7 for Hepworth & Idle.

Visitors Long Lee closed on 168-8 with Jack Kennedy making 38, as Chris Mitchell and Jonathon Thompson took 3-24 and Chris Mitchell 3-21.
