ALL Rounder Cricket Bradford Premier League Premier Division leaders New Farnley continued on their winning ways with a seven-wicket victory at Lightcliffe.

Spinner Luke Jarvis (5-22) and Dave McCallum (3-43) exposed the fragile Lightcliffe batting as they helped to dismiss the home side for 122.

Only overseas player Suleman Khan (37) looked like mounting a threat to the bowlers.

New Farnley slipped to 39-3 in reply before wicket-keeper Steve Bullen (48no) and skipper Lee Goddard (41no) steered their side home without further loss.

Pudsey St Lawrence are 12 points behind New Farnley after a 106-run win over Bradford & Bingley.

Yorkshire second-team all-rounder Jordan Thompson took 5-40, and was backed up by leg spinner Tom Hudson (4-47) as Bradford & Bingley subsided from 131-1 to 191 all out in response to their opponents' 297-6.

Opener Jonathan Whitehead top-scored with 51 for Bradford & Bingley, who are just three points above the relegation places.

St Lawrence were given a fine start by openers Mark Robertshaw (69) and Adam Waite (57), who shared a stand of 123.

Barrie Frankland (46no) and James Smith (37) then helped swell the total, despite the efforts of young spin bowler Bradley Reeve (3-77).

Third-placed Hanging Heaton were made to work hard for their 25-run win at Cleckheaton.

The home side's overseas player Tayyab Tahir made 100 from 96 balls - his third century of the season - as the home side made 246 chasing Hanging Heaton's 268-7.

The champions were indebted to another good bowling performance from Tom Chippendale (4-60) as they defended a total which owed much to the determined efforts of Joe Fraser (95no) and skipper Gary Fellow (51).

Farsley reached the halfway point in the season in fourth place after overseas player Pat Kruger hit a maiden Bradford Premier League century, which helped them recover from 80-4 to post a match-winning 264-8 against Woodlands.

James Logan (37) was the only early-order batsman to make an impression before Kruger took centre stage.

The South African all-rounder hit five sixes and 11 fours in his unbeaten 103, while the best of the Woodlands bowlers was spinner Kez Ahmed (3-79).

Woodlands could only muster 129 in reply as they slipped to a 135-run defeat.

Seamer Chris Henry was the destroyer in chief with 6-45, while spinner Logan took 3-35.

Methley will be pleased with their performance over the first half of the season after easing to a seven-wicket win at Scholes, which enabled them to climb above Woodlands into fifth.

All-rounder Marcus Walmsley was in fine form, taking 4-54 and following up with 83 as he and Yorkshire's Matthew Waite (47no) ensured that their side had little trouble passing Scholes' 167.

Scholes looked to be set for a challenging score when openers Shoukat Ali (71) and Chris Dennison (57) shared a stand of 91, but the innings declined rapidly after they were parted as Walmsley and skipper Grant Soames (5-53) got to work.

Townville compiled the day's highest score - 368-6 against bottom-team East Bierley.

Opener Kevin Ward was in top form, making 135 – his best score of the season.

Ward struck a six and 25 fours and was joined in an opening stand of 134 by Jonathan Booth (40).

Brayden Clark (44) continued the good work before skipper Conor Harvey smashed an unbeaten 83 from 59 balls, including five sixes and nine fours.

Taufeeq Ahmed was the most successful East Bierley bowler with 3-101 and followed up with the top score of 53 as his side were dismissed for 189. Harvey took 3-33 for Townville.
