WOODLANDS completed the second part of what they hope they will be a trophy treble after retaining the All Rounder Cricket Bradford Premier League Priestley Shield with a 35-run win over Bowling Old Lane at Methley.

Skipper Stephen Pearson and Cieran Garner were delighted to lift the famous trophy, and now have their sights set on Saturday when they hope to beat Batley and win the second teams' Premier Division title for the second successive year.

Opener Liam Brearley, who made a century in the 2016 final win over Hanging Heaton, played another important innings as Woodlands overcame spirited Old Lane.

Brearley had to show application and determination during his 120-ball innings in which he hit ten fours.

He also had to combat an excellent spell of bowling from Old Lane skipper Zubair Najeeb, who took 3-17 in ten probing overs.

Brearley added 33 for the first wicket with Garner (15) and 53 for the second with Jack Carter (23), whose brief innings included five fours.

Jack McGahan, who played for Woodlands in the Heavy Woollen Cup final, fell cheaply, as did Jack Bleazard and Tom Clee, as the Oakenshaw club went from 85-1 to 141-6.

But Kieran Collins (38no off 31 balls) provided the late impetus which took Woodlands to 205-7, adding 42 unbroken with Josh Griffin (10no) for the eighth wicket.

Ahsan Alishan also bowled tidily, with his ten overs only costing 27, and he also bagged a wicket and took two catches.

Old Lane, who are seven places lower than Woodlands in the Premier Division, knew they needed a sound start if they were to win the game, and they got one.

Adeel Nazir (46 off 56 balls, including five fours and three sixes) and the more watchful Najeeb (26 off 91 balls) put on 76 for the first wicket before Nazir fell.

They had a platform but failed to build on it, losing six wickets for 26 as they plunged to 102-6, with Najeeb being second out at 88.

Four wickets fell for three runs (88-1 to 91-5), with two run outs not helping Old Lane's innings, and, although Alishan (24) and Hafiz Ullah (20) tried to rebuild, Woodlands were in no mood to allow them back into the game.

Old Lane were eventually all out for 170, and Garner proved to be the best of the bowlers with 3-36.

Griffin took 2-32 and McGahan 1-20, trapping Nazir leg before, while Clee was economical up front with 0-24 off his ten overs.

Old Lane's brave cup run, which included successive one-wicket victories, was over, but they should be proud of the performances that took them to the final.
