KEIGHLEY took another big step towards their target of a trophy treble this season as they beat Sandal by three wickets to reach the All Rounder Cricket Bradford Premier League Jack Hampshire Cup final for the first time.

The Championship Division Two leaders have already won the JW Lees T20 Group B Cup and will now meet Bowling Old Lane in the Jack Hampshire final at Carlton on Sunday, August 19.

Keighley made the most of their second chance after being reinstated when Brighouse were ruled to have fielded an ineligible player when beating them in the previous round.

Conference side Sandal battled gamely, making 169-9 when they batted first and fought hard to defend their mediocre score.

Ian Shuttleworth (66) top-scored for Sandal against a bowling attack in which Ben Jagger (4-24) impressed.

Keighley reached their target with 8.5 overs to spare, with Richard Gould (31) and Paul Quinlan (30) leading the way.

Sandal's Conference rivals Great Preston posted a total of 203-7 when they batted first against Bowling Old Lane. David Illingworth (43) and Phil Schofield (37) were the top contributors to the Great Preston total.

Old Lane romped to victory with 13 overs to spare thanks to Ahsan Butt (89) and skipper Farakh Hussain (52).
