A REJUVENATED Ilkley claimed their second win of the season in style with a 125-run victory at Olicanian in Division One.

Wicketkeeper James Pearson - batting at no. 5 - scored a magnificent 98 not out, with Struan Connor adding 83 as the visitors made 309-6 from their 50 overs.

Tom Smallwood (82) led the charge for the hosts, who fell well short in their reply, with Paul Dover (4-62) and James Nixon (4-31) doing the damage.

Otley also impressed, beating Horsforth by 102 runs at Cross Green.

A 146-run partnership between Josh Stephenson (81no) and James Davies (80) saw the hosts achieve 276-7, with Tom Colley (42) top-scoring for the visitors as Stephen Brown took 5-42 to restrict them to 174 all out.

Saltaire remain top after picking up maximum points with a 108-run win at home to North Leeds.

Opener Danish Hussain (64) and Sajad Ali (52) saw the hosts post 268, with Tom Alldred and Archie Ralphs picking up three wickets each, but despite a fantastic 76 from Farhan Khan, Usman Munir (5-26) ensured the visitors never came close.

Elsewhere, Richard Atkins scored a fine century to help Addingham make 219-6 at home to Burley but visiting captain Redmond Bolton (84) saw his side home by three wickets.

There were also wins for Bilton and Rawdon against Beckwithshaw and Collingham & Linton respectively, with Richard Porter (59), George Myers (58) and Charlie Swallow (5-73) all impressing.

In Division Two, all eyes were on the top-of-the-table clash between early favourites New Rover and Pool.

Batting first, the league-leaders made 298-8 - with Adam Patel scoring a brilliant 128 - but they were undone by a mammoth 199-run partnership between openers Krutik Patel (140) and Cameron Duncan (83), falling to their first defeat of the season.

Adel, Follifoot and Tong Park Esholt all secured maximum points after beating Kirkstall, Horsforth Hall Park and Steeton respectively.

It was a nail-biting finish at Adel, who claimed the win with just four balls remaining, no.6 Joe Harrison (87) spurring them on to victory after Ben Fitzmaurice had earlier scored 56 to help the visitors post 234 all out.

Nat Cutts (93) impressed as Follifoot made 228-7 at home to Horsforth, with Stephen Wilkinson (88) and extras (36) seeing the visitors fall 42 runs short in their reply.

A 114-run partnership between Gareth Wilkinson (66no) and James Druce (43no) saw Tong Park to 231-5, with Steeton losing by 26 runs despite James Robinson (48) and Stephen Pearson (45) both batting well.

There were also narrow wins for Guiseley – who move from the foot of the table after beating Bardsey by 12 runs – and their neighbours Green Lane, who chased down Colton Institute’s total of 255 with just nine balls to spare.

In Division Three, leaders Harden remain unbeaten after picking up 19 points with an eight-wicket win at home to Skipton.

Visiting captain Shahid Nadeem (65) helped his side reach 202-8, with his counterpart Andy Wear (68) and Tom Cummins (55no) seeing the hosts to their target in the 48th over.

North Leeds claimed a 34-run win at home to Tong Park II thanks to Jonny Taylor (111) and Kshitij Kapote (53), despite the best efforts of Chris Holdsworth (100), with Steve Wales and Barry Singleton taking four wickets apiece.

St Chads were also victorious against Rawdon II, with captain Will Lander scoring 57 from just 21 deliveries to see them post 232, before Praveen Thotagamuwa took 5-34.

Elsewhere, Old Leodiensians and Calverley each picked up 18 points with wins against Alwoodley and Thackley respectively, but it was disappointment for Leeds Modernians, who fell to a 49-run defeat away at Bolton Villas.
