RIDDLESDEN have completed a remarkable treble by winning Division Three, Two and One in successive seasons in the Mewies Solicitors Craven League.

They wrapped up the top-flight title after winning a thriller against their main rivals Cowling last Saturday.

Needing just one point to be certain of the silverware, Riddlesden knew that they had the crown in the bag by tea after scoring 185, with No.8 Mohammed Zulfiqar hitting 74 off 37 balls, including three fours and nine sixes.

Riddlesden had been 84-6 but Zulfiqar and Mohammed Ishtiaq (15) added 94 for the seventh wicket as Hamid Ullah (5-46) got among them.

Cowling, with pride very much at the forefront, looked favourites at 157-5 but lost their last five wickets for 27 runs to lose by one run.

That was tough on Danish Hameed (41), Laiq Ur Rehman (28), Zahid Hussain (38) and Wasim Hussain (21).

That defeat means that Gargrave, who defeated visitors Wilsden by 59 runs, could still claim second place as they are only nine points behind Cowling going into the final fixtures.

Denholme were left wondering what might have been after the weather intervened late on in their clash at Haworth Road Meths.

The visitors made 142, with opener Adrian Shires (30) and No.8 Adam Vaux (28) doing best with the bat.

Meths were 138-9 in the reply with two overs left when the light became so poor that play was abandoned, Mohammed Irfan taking 3-37 and Adam Taylor 4-14.

Eldwick & Gilstead made 172 after choosing to bat at Haworth, with Tom Rowell bagging 3-58 and Jamie Rowell 4-40.

Haworth were then dismissed for 114, with Matty Lee (26) and Harry Reynoldson (28) the only players making above 20.

Hepworth & Idle racked up 266-9 at already-relegated Sutton, with Sachin Abraham taking 3-38 and Laurence Powell 3-60.

Sutton were 92-2 in reply, buoyed by Dave Snowden’s 52, but were eventually dismissed for 151, with keeper Oliver Gledhill 39 not out.

The battle for promotion from Division Two will go down to the final Saturday.

Although Bradley (251 points) only need one point to be certain of being champions, second-placed Glusburn (232) could still be caught by Airedale (221).

Bradley had the pleasure of playing at Wagon Lane against already-relegated Bradford & Bingley III, who won the toss and made 178, with Iklaq Ahmed taking 3-41 and Shahzad GullBahar 2-18.

The visitors were in bother at 62-4 but found the men for a crisis in keeper Dave Hunt (57 off 33 balls) and Toby Meynell (50no), who added 91 for the fifth wicket.

Although Bradley lost two more wickets, there was little doubt that they would triumph, passing the target in the 38th over for a three-wicket win.

Things were much more tense at Park Field, where Glusburn must have been fearing the worst after winning the toss but making only 77 against Silsden.

Only Ryan Ridehalgh (14), Dipesh Mistry (19) and No.11 Michael Egan (10) reached double figures as Will Pullen (8-37) cut a swathe through their batting.

However, Glusburn had their own bowling hero in Irfan Khaliq (8-19) as Silsden subsided from 54-1 to lose by five runs.

Josh Waind (18), Sam Barraclough (13) and skipper Jack Roberts (14) had put the Cobbydalers in the driving seat, only for them to be undermined by Khaliq, who dismissed five Silsden batters for ducks.

Airedale slipped up in a thriller at Thornton-in-Craven, making 142-9 after winning the toss, Alec Pue (46) and Khuram Butt (42) giving them runs up the order.

The Booth Bridge Laners were sitting pretty at 96-3 but then wobbled and it needed David Holt (42no) to see them home by one wicket in the 39th over, Scott Whittam-Ritchie taking 3-45 and Calum Davies 4-25.

Skipton CI were emphatic winners at Ingrow making a healthy 237-9 after winning the toss at Hainworth Lane, with Matty Courtman taking 3-45.

Ingrow started well in their reply via Ben Weatherall (14), Atif Malik (20) and Courtman (29) but were castled for 98.

In theory, the title battle for Division Three is still alive.

However, in practice Bowling Baptist are almost there, needing just three points from title rivals Cononley at the Sports Ground on Saturday to be sure.

Cononley picked up their 13th league win of the season, making 174-8 at Skipton CI II after winning the toss.

Although both openers fell cheaply, the next five batters all weighed in, led by skipper Harry Parker (56), Andrew Starkey (39) and Charles Calvert (29).

CI were then rolled over for 87 as Matthew Calvert took 4-11, Colin Stead 2-17 and Willie Naylor 2-26.

Cowling II made short work of Keighley III, dismissing the visitors for 66, with Ubaid Rauf (3-23) and Haseeb Majid (7-29) running riot as only captain Zahid Bashir (14) and Shehryar Hussain (14) made double figures.

Steve Dalby (26no) then guided the hosts to an eight-wicket win inside 20 overs, putting them a point above the relegation places.

Keighley III profited from a walkover against Bingley Congs III on Sunday.

Hosts Wilsden II, sent in by Haworth II, made 164, with fifth and sixth bowlers Paul Stephens (4-22) and Oliver Shoesmith (3-12) having most success.

Haworth were then toppled for 99, despite 41 from keeper Tom Loynes.

Sutton II and Silsden II gained maximum points in Division Four in contrasting styles, with Sutton getting a walkover against Long Lee, while Silsden defeated Glusburn II by six wickets.

Visitors Glusburn chose to bat and made 174, with skipper Mark Pickles (47) and Umar Dar (67) adding 62 for the fifth wicket after opener Javed Akram had scored 23.

Keenan Wozny took 4-43 to put the skids under them at the start and TJ Berry (4-49) then mopped up the tail.

Hugh Sugden (77no) then batted through the reply as the Cobbydalers won with four balls to spare, with Boe Kennedy (42no) featuring in an unbroken stand of 85.

Bradley II had a very one-sided win over Hepworth & Idle III, making 215 after winning the toss.

Captain and keeper Harry Andrews (71) set the tone, and he was supported by Awais Azeem (31), Abdul Rehman (23) and Jack Andrews (39).

The Westfield Laners were then skittled for 38, with Edson Richmond taking 3-3 and Donnacha Washington 3-5, while Charlie Andrews bagged 2-8.

Denholme II improved their batting averages in scoring 179-3 at home to Menston Crompark II.

Captain Hussnain Ali (32) and Liaqat Ali (63no) put on 57 for the first wicket before the latter added 65 unbroken with Josh Wheatley (47no).

Crompark were then dismissed for 174 in a tight match, with Hussnain Ali taking 3-47 and Ismaeel Ali 4-23.

Airedale II were in action on Saturday and Sunday, hosting Ingrow II on Saturday and making 177-8.

Younis Shahzad scoring 89 not out off 82 deliveries and added 54 for the seventh wicket with Stephen Bond (15).

Adam Hussain (3-14) stood out with the ball for Ingrow, who replied with 82, with only captain Liam Gillard (18), Adam Millward (14) and Tony Hodgson (19) reaching double figures as Shahzad took 3-29, Warren Coppack 3-30 and Mark Smith 2-8.

On Sunday, Airedale II were at Hepworth & Idle III, who won the toss and made 241-6.

Airedale were then dismissed for 30, with only Asher Nutting (12) in double figures.
