Hanging Heaton look to maintain streak

Hanging Heaton look to maintain streak

Reigning champions Hanging Heaton entertain Townville at Bennett Lane tomorrow looking to make it three wins from three in the Bradford League’s Premier Division.

In their last game Garry Fellows’ side crushed East Bierley by a massive 200-run margin, with the Hanging Heaton skipper making 101 and opening partner Nick Connolly 55 before being run out. 

In fact, the opening stand of 112 would have been enough to win it.

East Bierley look to be in for a disastrous season if early events are anything to go by. 

In this last game their reply to the Hanging Heaton total of 288 for five they managed just 88 as Aqsad Ali returned figures of 8-33 in 10.4 overs.

There are four teams with two wins from two so far and one of those is promoted Methley who have a visit from a Cleckheaton side who have failed to win either of their opening fixtures.

West Leeds rivals Pudsey St Lawrence and Farsley are the other two winning sides and they face Woodlands at home and Scholes away respectively.

Last year’s Championship One winners Scholes were convincing 71-run winners at Bradford and Bingley in their last game as Aditya Waghmode (87) and Yasir Ali (5-38) did the damage.

In Championship One Batley, at home to Pudsey Congs this week, Hartshead Moor, at home to Bankfoot, and Ossett, at Wrenthorpe, have just 22 points between them as they each go in search of a first win.

Gomersal go to Yeadon on the back of a great weekend that saw them complete a six-wicket win at Ossett and a fine Cup win at Pudsey Congs.

Jack Seddon turned in a top all-round performance for Gomersal at Ossett with four victims behind the stumps and 46 in a matchwinning unbeaten century stand with John Boynton.

Birstall, at Wakefield St Michaels tomorrow, proved far too strong for Spen Victoria in Championship Two as a top-scoring 88 from Rishi Limbechaya helped them to 231 on the way to a 93-run win. 

In contrast, things don’t look like getting better soon for Spen as they now face a Buttershaw St Pauls side with two wins from two.

Liversedge, beaten at home by Hopton Mills are looking for some improvement with the visit of Northowram Fields to Roberttown Lane tomorrow.
