Craven League round-up

Craven League round-up

First published in Sport by

Play was possible in only two of the scheduled Craven League matches at the weekend after heavy rain on Friday and Saturday morning left lakes on grounds.

Hepworth & Idle entertained Oakworth II in Division Two and looked to be on their way to a first win before conditions halted play after only two balls of the second innings.

Oakworth were all out for 84 as Tim Shackleton (5-15) and Dave Matthews (3-35) cleaned up.

Cononley took first knock at Haworth Road II in Division Three and rattled up 226-4 courtesy of Andrew Starkey (79no), Herbie Starkey (50) and Michael Beer (40). The home side were 9-0 at the conclusion.

Only one Cowling Cup first-round tie could be played on Sunday as Craven League grounds were still unfit following the previous day’s wash-outs.

Gargrave II were at home to Haworth Road II and struggled to contain the visitors as they amassed 179-9, with Rob Greenwood finishing unbeaten on 56.

Only one player then reached double figures as the home side struggled to 79 in reply, 17-year-old Joe Metcalfe hitting three sixes and four fours in his innings of 54.
