GEORGE Powell produced a fine seven-over spell of 5-18 to restrict Horsforth to 147 and set Rawdon on the way to maintaining their winning start to the season.

Ben Heritage (43) gave Horsforth a solid start but then they collapsed to 99-7 and it took a late flourish from Bailey Worcester (30) and Shahkrukh Kahn (13), who put on 47 for the eighth wicket, to give them any kind of chance.

But Rawdon were not to be denied and skipper Andrew Duckworth (55no) and Jake Hodges (32no) saw them home with seven wickets to spare.

Guiseley’s impressive start to the season continued with South African Heynrych Nel (6-20) skittling out Collingham for 46 and James Thistlethwaite (31no) clinching the nine-wicket win.

Openers Ben Morley (63) and David Hester (49no) put on 112 as Otley chased down Colton’s 139 total for the loss of only one wicket.

Nick Brook hit 63 and Jason Wright (51no) in Burley’s 188 total and Brook then picked up 3-45 as North Leeds were bowled out for 179 with one ball remaining.

Set 298-9 to chase by Beckwithshaw, Pool were well served by David Paynter (102) and Ryan Sharrocks (61). But the third-highest scorer was extras with 18, the remaining nine batsmen managing only eight runs between them as Pool went down by 111.

David Pennett (4-49) and Will Spivey (3-12) restricted Bilton to 160 but Ikley’s batting couldn’t respond and they were dismissed for just 85.

Tong Park came out on top at Leeds Modernians in the battle between two sides who won promotion to Division Two last season.

Modernians were going along impressively until Mahir Ali (5-58) stopped them in their tracks, bringing the innings to a halt on 209 with three wickets in an over.

Nick Flood (86) and Danny Groom (55no) made sure Park clinched the win that puts them second in the table.

Calverley also made it two wins out of two despite the efforts of James Carlill who took 6-42 as they were dismissed for 170. Gary Walton (67) gave Hall Park a solid start but couldn’t find partners to stick around and Tom Westerman (4-21) and Barrie McCormick (3-37) bowled out the home side for 165.

John Akrigg (46) and a 134 fourth-wicket partnership between Craig Walton (125) and Tom Stead (49) saw Steeton to 283 and on their way to victory over Skipton whose batsmen were unable to build a big innings.

Shane Wineti (45) top scored as Ben Rhydding successfully chased down Kirkstall’s 176 total but there was frustration for Addingham who fell five runs short of overtaking Follifoot’s 203-8 in spite of the efforts of Will Atkins (42) and skipper Laurie O’Connor (64).

Jack Mills (42no) and Umar Farooq (37) were Thackley’s main contributors but they never looked likely to catch Adel’s 300-5.

Brothers Tom and Harry Smallwood put on 109 to put Olicanian on the way to victory over New Rover in a high-scoring match in Division Three.

The home side set a solid 243-9 target but Tom Watson (45) gave Olicanian a good platform before Tom (87no) and Harry (33) buckled down to ensure the four-wicket win.

Saltaire have made an impressive start to life in the Aire Wharfe, Hammad Ul Hassan (82) and Adeel Ashraf, who followed up a three-wicket haul with 33, the main contributors as they beat Alwoodley.

A half century from Waleed Akhtar and 4-41 spell from Chris Spivey were the backbone of Green Lane’s 42-run win over St Chads but Bolton Villas’ season got off to a shaky start, coming up 62 runs short of Bardsey’s 222 total.
