Farsley made it two in a row by bowling out Savile Stars for 74, which included a 30 and a 25, at Clariant before replying with 76-6 in a low-scoring game.

There was a similar tale in B Division at Church Lane, where Halifax Direct B were dismissed for only 75 by Adel who went on to win by six wickets, chiefly thanks to opener and wicket-keeper Alex Robert Jones (46).

The division's highest-scoring game was at Smithy Lane, where Cookridge B made 212-8, with Dave Kennard scoring 67 and Rameez Khan 53.

St Chad's slipped to 45-3 in reply but they were helped by 54 from Nasmul Hasan and knocked off the required runs for the loss of six wickets in 39.1 overs.

Morley are the new leaders in C Division, taking advantage of One Stop having a free week.

At Sunnybank, opener Peter Burkinshaw was dropped first ball and went on to score 61 out of Muff Field B's 126 (Neil Smith 4-48, Adam Hodgson 3-4) but Tong Park Esholt replied with 128-4 (Simon Hogan 43) to go second in the table.

Leeds Caribbean B made 190 (Marcus Foster 6-14) at Mayfield Terrace, thanks to 95 from Rajab Ali and 64 from Mohammed Janaid, who put on 150 for the third wicket, and then bowled out Mayfield B for 70 (Waqar Ahmed 4-7, Hari Nalbandu 4-23).
