MARK Robertshaw produced one of the finest innings of his All Rounder Cricket Bradford Premier League career as he powered title-chasing Pudsey St Lawrence to a stunning five-wicket win at Hanging Heaton.

The left-handed opener made an unbeaten 162 as St Lawrence chased down the defending champions' challenging total of 286-7 with 13 balls to spare.

Robertshaw, who is the Premier Division's leading run-scorer this season with 882, hit two sixes and 15 fours as he powered his side to victory and dealt a fatal blow to Hanging Heaton's hopes of retaining their crown.

Robertshaw was well supported by wicket-keeper Charlie Best (40) and promising young batsman Harry Cullingford (33) as St Lawrence dominated the Hanging Heaton bowling attack.

Earlier in the day, Hanging Heaton's prolific opening pair of Gary Fellows (98) and Nick Connolly (88) had shared a stand of 166, which was the bedrock of their side's total.

Ben Kohler-Cadmore (33) also chipped in with valuable runs.

Despite their remarkable win, St Lawrence, who earned 18 points, have been joined at the top by New Farnley, who showed no mercy for troubled Scholes as they romped to a nine-wicket win in a match that lasted just 19.1 overs and earned them a maximum 20 points.

Ten-man Scholes, who fielded a side bolstered by second-teamers, were bowled out for just 42 as Alex Lilley (5-9) and Andrew Brewster (4-29) wreaked havoc with the new ball.

New Farnley then took just 6.3 overs to knock off the runs.

Yorkshire all-rounder Matthew Waite is adding weight to Methley's challenge for honours.

They are just 26 points behind the joint leaders in third place after their 92-run win over Farsley.

Waite took 4-12 in an impressive 10-over spell which contained seven maidens as Priestley Cup finalists Farsley were dismissed for 79.

Adal Islam (4-20) backed up Waite's efforts as only opener James Pickles (30) resisted the Methley attack for long.

Adam Patel (63) produced another important contribution with the bat when Methley scored 171 after being put in.

Spinner Mark Harrison proved the best of the Farsley bowlers with 5-42.

The Woodlands pair of Tim Jackson and Chris Brice showed no mercy for their former club Cleckheaton as they played key roles in their side's eight-wicket win.

Left-arm spinner Brice took 5-60 and was supported by paceman Muhammad Bilal (4-47) as Cleckheaton lost their last eight wickets for 22 runs and failed to capitalise on a fine century from opener Nick Lindley.

The left-hander hit five sixes and 11 fours in his 104 and was the dominant feature of Cleckheaton's 198.

Woodlands eased to victory, with their skipper Jackson making an unbeaten 93 as he shared an undefeated third-wicket stand of 168 with Cieran Garner, who finished on 88 not out.

Townville skipper Conor Harvey was the key figure in his side's nine-run win over struggling Bradford & Bingley. Harvey took 7-49 and Shahid Nawaz 3-36 as Bradford & Bingley were all out for 171 in reply to the home side's 180.

Such a close finish seemed unlikely when Bradford & Bingley slipped to 23-4, but opener Jack Edgar (60) and skipper Matthew Duce (43) showed the sort of fight their side will need if they are to keep out of relegation danger.

Opener Jonathan Booth again set the tone for the Townville innings with 61, while Ed Brown (3-29), Jack Hartley (3-40) and Kyme Tahirkeli (3-40) shared the bowling honours.

East Bierley were brought down to earth with a bump after their win over Bradford & Bingley the previous week as they lost by 57 runs to Lightcliffe.

Openers Josh Wheatley (62) and Alex Stead (48) shared a stand of 105 as Lightcliffe built a score of 242-5 when they batted first.

Yassir Abbas (34no) and Suleman Khan (32) added useful runs.

Abbas (4-37) and spinner Wheatley (4-34) ensured that Lightcliffe secured victory as East Bierley were out for 185, Rizwan Ali top-scored with 53, while Awaise Hussain (44) and Shabbir Rashid (42) battled hard for their side.
