IT was a case of whatever you can do, I can do better in the Aire-Wharfe League Division One clash between Saltaire and Collingham & Linton.

Firstly, Sajid Ali impressed with a six-wicket haul reducing Collingham to 90ao. It was Charlie Swallow who would steal the limelight though, recording figures of 8-24 to capture a 19-run win for his team.

135 was never going to be enough for Ilkley against champions-in-waiting Otley. James Davies’ men have Josh Atkinson (69) to thank in their steady reply.

George Myers (102) hit a ton to provide his Rawdon team with a return to winning ways. The hosts shot a huge 264/8 to capture a 68-run victory over North Leeds.

Addingham skipper Ted Haggas smashed an incredible 85 off 56 balls to blow Bilton away. Robert Ellis got a fifer as the visitors fell 133 short of the 178 target.

Jason Wright (7-4) was in scintillating form, bowling Follifoot all out for a lowly 59 score. Burley-in-Wharfedale only needed 13 overs to get over the line.

Despite giving it their best shot, Olicanian’s woes continue at the bottom. Horsforth set a mighty 223/9 which the hosts only missed out by 15-runs after reaching the 50 over limit.

Beckwithshaw and Tong Park Esholt continue to jostle for top spot in Division Two.

Shaw lead the pack after shooting Guiseley down for only 60. Previous to that they had fired a superb 176.

As for Tong, they were made to work for their narrow one-wicket win over Calverley St Wilfrids. Gareth Lee (4-21) was the menace trying to halt their 134 reply.

Captain Daniel Groom's 57 aided in Esholt getting out of there with four overs to spare.

Two half-centuries, from Joe Greaves (59) and Tom Watson (52), helped Horsforth Hall Park (180) bypass Bardsey by 14 runs.

In what was the shock in the round of fixtures, New Rover hammered Adel by 170 runs.

Adam Patel (104) and Fahid Rehman's (89) classy showings were the reason why the home side set 250.

Remarkably, Rover have now won two on the bounce after failing to charter a single victory in their first six outings.

Green Lane are third. Nadeem Safdar’s 82 put them in pole position against Kirkstall Educational.

Kirkstall (229) did respond well, but Lane edged the contest in the end by seven runs.

Colton Institute remain frontrunners in Division Three. However, many would have expected them to suffer their first defeat after Tong Park Esholt seconds opened with 221/6.

Brad Firn’s 82 inspired a dramatic comeback which ended in his side nicking it by a single wicket.

Second-placed Skipton also had a battle to ensure they didn’t lose valuable pace.

Ilkley seconds’ 149/9 seemed a more than catchable score. Although, panic set in when the visitors were 15-3 early on.

Great batting in the late order turned out to be Skipton’s saviour in the end.

Bolton Villas fended Alwoodley off third place with a nice four wicket win.

Kashif Rehman (66) was the only light in a bare thin Alwoodley attack which set 124. Villas only needed half the allocation of overs to seal the victory.

North Leeds seconds smacked 174/9 against Leeds Modernians. Ziad Khan (4-42) helped dismantle the visitors whose top-scorer hit a miserable 17 in their 137 response.

Century maker Madan Basavarajaiah (112) guided Old Leodiensians (215) to a 56-run win over Ben Rhydding.

Thackley were outmatched by a powerful St Chads Broomfield side.

Wicketkeeper Jack Holland hit an amazing 142 but the rest of his team failed to back him up as Sachin Nehra’s 102 shot Broomfield to 284, 73 better than Thackley.

Otley seconds pulled out the stops to smash Calverley St Wilfrids seconds by 135 runs in Division Four.

Division Five saw Green Lane jump to the summit after an amazing 139-run mauling of Bardsey seconds.

In Division Six, leaders St Chads Broomfield seconds were again victorious, beating Shadwell seconds.
