BOTH Foulridge teams have been deducted nine points, the Mewies Solicitors Craven & District League has announced.

Clubs have been reminded numerous times about failure to comply with child welfare policies. Clubs were also reminded that points would be deducted if there were any further transgressions.

Meanwhile, the cricket on Saturday was badly curtailed by the weather. Many games started and reached around the 20 overs mark before being abandoned. Only one game, in Division Three, reached a conclusion.

In Division One, Jamie Rowell (31no) and Peter Gower (15no) had reached 48-0 in 20.3 overs when the rain arrived to end their game with Haworth Road, who are second in the table.

In third spot are Crossflatts, who were in sparkling form along the road at Bingley Congs. After losing a wicket with only four on the board, Bright Bjanji (82no) and James Roper (73no) put on a robust 157 for the second wicket.

The game was abandoned with 23.5 overs gone.

Cowling had every reason to curse the weather after they had reduced visitors Foulridge to 85-9, of which Asrar Qamar made 35no as Liam Foulkes (4-8) and Reece Hussain (3-21), did the damage before play ceased.

Barrowford were at Denholme and batting first had scored 71.3 off 18.4 overs when stumps were drawn.

After 20 overs at Ingrow, visitors Embsay had reached 50-2 with Ben Keane (19no) and Will Rankin (2-16) being the mini stars of the game.

Sutton were the visitors to Cure Hill and had Oakworth 67-4 off 16 overs when the game was abandoned. Lucas Keslinki had made 25 as James McDonald’s eight overs had produced 2-20.

In Division Two, Hepworth & Idle remain top despite no play at Barrowford II.

Wilsden are in second spot. They travelled to Gargrave who batted first and had scored 80-3.

Will Smith (39no) and John Beckwith (27) and Glenn Stableford (2-9) were the best performers in the truncated play.

Sandy Lane are in third spot. They were handily placed as Long Lee were struggling at 70-6 up at Golden View. James Fullwood (21no) and Mohammad Ishtiaq (10no) were just rebuilding the innings from 43-6. Zahid Hussain had taken 3-13.

Farhan Khalid (43) and Shahbaz Ahmed (31no) had helped Bradford & Bingley III to 76-2 along the road at Crossflatts II.

Yusuf Mohammed had made 37no out of Airedale’s 86-4 on their visit to Haworth Road II.

Eldwick & Gilstead lost three early wickets at Grange Road. Then Jayesh Thombare (54no) and Steve Timperley 25no did a rebuilding job which has reached 89-3 off 22 overs. Cononley’s Harry Parker had claimed 3-20 when play stopped.
