Steeton remain second in Division Two of the Aire-Wharfe League, and in line for a promotion and Waddilove Cup double.

They easily beat Bolton Villas on Saturday, despite only making 151 batting first.

John Akrigg and Ben Hemsley top-scored with 23 apiece, but fortunately for the Summerhill Laners, Stephen Pearson ran riot with the ball.

He took 7-18 as Bolton Villas were skittled for just 59.

Harden could have virtually wrapped up top spot in Division Three on Saturday, but instead they were thrashed by title rivals Guiseley at Nethermoor Park.

The hosts racked up 294-3, Ben McGonigle taking all of the wickets for his side with 3-86.

Andy Wear, Toby Priestley and Martin Taylor all scored 24 in Harden’s reply, but no-one was able to surpass that as Harden were rolled over for 133.

Meanwhile, in the Halifax League Premier Division, Oxenhope grabbed a timely winning draw against Sowerby Bridge Church Institute, moving 17 points clear of the drop as a result.

When Alex Baker (92 not out) and captain Lewis Hopkinson (62) put on 111 for the first wicket, Oxenhope looked on for a sizeable score.

Once Hopkinson was out, Baker lacked support, and though he was able to carry his bat, Oxenhope may have been a little disappointed to only post 203-7 from their 45 overs.

But they need not have worried, as Sowerby Bridge could only post 178-9 in reply, with Daniel Scott taking 4-50, meaning Oxenhope took 11 points from a possible 12.

It was a disappointing weekend for Cullingworth and Oakworth though, both of whom now look likely to miss out on promotion from the Second Division.

Cullingworth were stunned, losing to second-bottom Bridgeholme by 59 runs.

Jack Rogers and James Bloodworth took three wickets as Bridgeholme were dismissed for 189, but Cullingworth slumped to 80-8 in reply, with Graham Rankin’s 49 at least seeing them reach 130 all out.

Oakworth’s Bradley Powell recorded superb figures of 3-17 in 14 overs, as leaders Augustinians posted 165-5.

But Oakworth fell to 2-3 in reply, and though James Powell made 42 to lead the recovery, they could only post 114 all out.
