LEADERS Wrenthorpe are guaranteed to finish in the top two of the All Rounder Cricket Bradford Premier League Championship Division One after securing a hard-earned two-wicket win over lowly Hunslet Nelson.

Half-centuries from Andrew Bourke (57), Luke Patel (56) and Matthew Race (50) enabled them to edge past Hunslet Nelson’s 236-9.

Michael Lambert (4-59) bowled well for Nelson, who were indebted to eighth-wicket pair Mark Murphy (48) and Will Stiff (40no) for giving them a more challenging total to try and defend.

Second-placed Undercliffe, who are 16 points back with a game in hand, had little trouble recording a 139-run win over Gomersal, who have slipped down the table in recent weeks.

Valuable contributions from Robert Williams (49), Zeeshan Qasim (39) and Fahid Rehman (33) saw Undercliffe to 213-8.

Joel Pollard (3-29) and Richard Wear (3-61) proved the most successful bowlers for Gomersal, who were toppled for just 74.

Jonathan Boynton (32) battled hard but his colleagues struggled as Undercliffe skipper Scott Etherington (5-16) and Michael Kelsey (4-34) sealed their side’s win.

Hartshead Moor batsman Mohammad Khan finally found his best form of the season as he blasted a stunning 163 not out to power them to 302-3 as they defeated bottom team Yeadon by 113 runs.

Three sixes and 26 fours flowed from Khan’s bat, and he was joined in an impressive third-wicket stand of 244 by Craig Field (95).

Khan followed up with 4-39 as Yeadon were restricted to 189-9 (James Todd 43, Ryan Heptinstall 32.

Ossett boosted their hopes of avoiding relegation with a three-wicket win over Pudsey Congs.

Paul Malone (64no), Joe Hitch (62) and Harvey Anderson (39) enabled Ossett to chase down Congs’ 202.

Opener Mubtada Akhtar top-scored with 88 for Congs, while spinner Anderson was the best of the Ossett bowlers with 4-25.

Third-placed Morley were made to fight harder than expected for their 11-run win over Bankfoot.

They looked to have their visitors on the rack when they reduced them to 0-3 and 6-5 when they replied to Morley’s 135, but Shanz Prangige had other ideas.

He made an unbeaten 49 and got valuable support from the tail before his side were bowled out for 124.

Prangige had earlier been his side’s best bowler with 4-25, figures only bettered by Morley paceman Matthew Dowse (5-29).

Henry Rush (48no) continued his good form with the bat for Morley.

Australian all-rounder Blair Oakley was Baildon’s match winner as they defeated Batley by 50 runs.

Firstly he made 66 and helped Stefan Mather (73no) guide Baildon to 225, before taking 5-40.

Evergreen spinner Mushtaq Ahmed gave Oakley good support with 3-46 as Batley were unable to capitalise on the efforts of Faisal Javed (59) and Masa Ahmed (35).
