GARGRAVE are making waves in the Wynn Cup.

They have won three matches out of three in the Mewies Solicitors Craven League’s main knockout competition, which this year is initially being played in mini-leagues.

Visitors Bradley had first knock, but could only make 112, which was a recovery from 43-6 as Iklaq Ahmed scored 35.

Will Smith (3-5), Ben Howlett (3-10), Harry McEneaney (2-30) and George Beckwith (2-29) shared the wickets before Lee Barrett and Dave Harrop showed their prowess with the bat.

Barrett finished on 50 not out and keeper Harrop 43 not out in an unbroken stand of 75 as victory was achieved by nine wickets in the 18th over.

Sutton are matching Gargrave with three wins out of three after a two-wicket triumph at Denholme.

Denholme made an impressive 209-9, with Jibin Jacob (2-15) and Tony Walton (3-29) doing best with the ball for Sutton, who timed their reply nicely, making 210-8 in 37.2 of their allotted 40 overs.

Jack Whitaker, who scored 77 off 59 balls, including eight fours and three sixes, gave the innings its impetus, adding 68 with opener Sam Solley (38) for the second wicket, with Walton (25no) and Ben Middleton (19no) also playing their part.

Cowling made short work of Skipton CI at Sandylands, dismissing the hosts for 64 (Muddassar Khan 16, Darren Pighills 13no) inside 21 overs thanks largely to Connor Brown (5-27) and Laiq Ur Rehman (3-7).

Visiting keeper Rahman Ali then scored 33 not out as Cowling won by nine wickets in the 11th over.

Silsden only made 131 at Bowling Baptist, but that was more than enough in a 61-run victory.

Rob Jones (26) and Dominic Mortimer (31) led the way for the Cobbydalers in their 131 before Joshua Waind (3-21), Joe Sugden (4-6 off 4.4 overs) and Mortimer (2-28) proved a deadly trio.

In the other group, Thornton-in-Craven’s batting faltered again, this time at Eldwick & Gilstead, who made 131, collapsing from 91-3 to David Wolfe (3-31).

Thornton’s innings also went south, this time from 54-1 after Rob Cockell had scored 39, finishing on 101.

Glusburn, who only had four players in double figures, could only muster 68 after winning the toss at home to Haworth, who won by four wickets, despite Irfan Khaliq taking 4-26.

Gargrave II made it a weekend double for the club by defeating Menston Crompark II by five wickets at High Royds in the John Clayton Cup.

Ben Wood (3-13), Richard Bell (2-35), Giles Winterton (2-32) and Kieran Ashley (2-13) helped to restrict the newcomers to 131-9 before Adam Hudson (31no) saw Gargrave to a five-wicket victory.

Also contributing were Will Peryer and Dominic Ferneyhough, with 26 each.

Silsden II romped home by nine wickets against visitors Bradford & Bingley III.

The visitors made 177-6 after winning the toss, Lewis Middleton taking 3-26, and then it was over to Mohsan Gulbar, who played attractive shots in making 101 not out off 79 balls, including 16 fours and two sixes.

Bilal Mahmood also reached his landmark just before victory was achieved in the 27th over, with his 51 not out containing nine fours.

Another centurion was Skipton CI’s Sean Williamson, whose unbeaten 108, including 12 fours and four sixes, propelled them to 206-6 at Sutton II, with Tariq Ghani (36) adding 85 for the third wicket as Will Tedder (2-12) was the best of eight bowlers used.

Stuart Tillotson (23) and Ali Hussain (34) then added 54 for Sutton’s second wicket and Theo Reay (21) and Josh Franklin (35) 56 for the fifth, but there was little other support as Ghani, the seventh bowler used, took 3-10.

Glusburn II fared even worse than their first team, being skittled for 43 at Hepworth & Idle III, Kevin Hird top-scoring with eight on the way to a swift ten-wicket defeat.

In the Cowling Cup, Cononley racked up 226-5 in their 20 overs after winning the toss at home to Ingrow II.

Skipper Harry Parker (62) led the way, followed by Andrew Starkey and Tom Feather (43 each), Nathan Parker (37) and Scott Brook (33).

Ingrow were then restricted to 101-7 as Colin Stead (3-13) and Matthew Calvert (2-28) held sway.

Cowling II were beaten by four wickets by Hepworth & Idle II after scoring 119-6, with Ubaid Rauf hitting 46 not out for the losers.

However, the Keighley Road side had a double weekend and defeated hosts Long Lee II by nine wickets after dismissing them for 64.

Sajid Shafait took 4-9 for Cowling, with Ur Rehman then scoring 28 not out as victory was achieved as early as the seventh over.

Bradley II were well beaten by visitors Hepworth & Idle, who made 195-5 and then rolled the hosts over for 74, with Umar Ali scoring 20 and Harry Andrews 18.
