Hounds through to Challenge Cup final

Hounds through to Challenge Cup final

WALKERS HOUNDS booked their place in the Heavy Woollen Challenge Cup final with a hard earned 3-0 over Linthwaite. 

They will meet either Mirfield Town or Clifton Rangers in the final. 

This Sunday sees the second semi-final of the Heavy Woollen Challenge Trophy between Birstall Cricket Club and Clifton Rangers Reserves. The game kicks off at 11am at Overthorpe Sports Club.

In the Premier Division, title-chasing Deighton WMC were stunned last Sunday as they went down to a shock 7-2 defeat at the hands of Clifton Rangers. The result leaves Deighton in third place, a point behind both Mirfield Town and Walkers Hounds – although Walkers have a game in hand over both their rivals.

Mount Pleasant were crowned winners of the Championship after they won 3-1 against Ravenswharfe and their only challengers Birstall Cricket Club were held to a draw. Mount had a brace from Abdulla Mayat plus a strike from Nadeem Seedat to thank for their goals, with Daniel Stocks replying for Ravenswharfe. 

Meanwhile, Birstall could only draw 5-5 with bottom side Clifton Rangers Reserves, despite a double from Johnny Beverley and goals from Sean Housecroft, Kyle Walker and Daniel McDaid.

In the only other game played, third-placed Snowdon won 2-0 at Battyeford.
