OAKWORTH are on for the cup treble in the Craven League.

They have now added the Manorlands Plate to their Wynn Cup triumph, and the final piece of the jigsaw is the Cowling Cup, where their second team face Hepworth & Idle II in a semi-final on Sunday at Airedale.

Hosts Oakworth breezed past Skipton CI in the second semi-final of the Plate last Sunday, winning in the 13th over, and then defeated Denholme in the final by four wickets with 11 balls to spare.

Gargrave faced Denholme in the opening semi-final and the South Craven side, who won the toss, made 101-8.

Dieter Kayley, who hit three fours and two sixes, led the way with 29 off 24 balls, and Tony Spensley scored 20, with Neil Spencer (3-14), Adrian Shires (2-16) and Adam Taylor (2-30) among the wickets.

Denholme passed their target with six wickets in hand, also with 11 balls to spare, with Adam Taylor (23) and Richard Taylor (22) setting things up for Michael Dennison (16no) and Callum Gerrard (11no) to finish things off.

Oakworth chose to field in the second semi-final and may have been regretting it when Nikhil Thomas (30) and Martin Chisnall (32) put on 65 for CI’s first wicket.

However, the men from Sandylands could only total 126-5, despite Luke Cater’s unbeaten 29, with Jack Davison taking 2-21.

That merely set things up for Oakworth’s Jordan Powell, who hit eight of the 10 balls that he faced for boundaries.

Six of them cleared the ropes, while there were also two fours and he ended on 46 not out, taking his team home with 44 balls remaining.

Joel Gallagher (23) and Lucas Keslinke (20) also contributed as Sam Smith took 2-23 and Rob Cockell 2-31.

Oakworth again chose to field in the final, and Denholme made an identical score to Skipton, this time for seven down.

Adam Vaux (33), Chris Dennison (20no) and Neil Spencer (29no) scored the majority of their runs late in the order from 43-6, with Harry Hollingsworth taking 5-20.

It was tougher for Oakworth with the bat but they still got there in a well-timed run chase, with Gallagher scoring 24, Harry Hollingsworth 27 and skipper Rob Hollingsworth 34 not out.

Adam Taylor was Denholme’s most successful bowler with 3-40.
