JER Lane, who finished the season in second place 13 points behind Premier Division champions Booth, have won their last match in the Spenser Wilson Halifax League in style.

Bradford League-bound Jer had a 175-run win over Oxenhope, whose slide from second place on May 27, after defeating Booth, to third from bottom at the end has been one of the season’s talking points.

Jer's Johnny Lister was unlucky, being stranded on 95 not out (eight fours, two sixes) as the overs ran out as Kieran Rodgers (69) and Matthew Johnson (67) also hit half-centuries in their 292-5.

Lewis Hopkinson (59), not for the first time, was the only home batsman to cause any problems for the visitors' bowlers as Rodgers took 5-25 in a notable all-round performance as Oxenhope made only 117.

Booth concluded their successful season with a nine-wicket win at home to Northowram Hedge Top.

The latter were all out for a less than challenging 170, and the champions had no problem achieving the target, with Moazzum Ayub blasting 117 not out and Robert Laycock being at the crease just long enough to top 1,000 runs for the season, thus completing another fine year at Broad Fold Park.

A miserable season for Queensbury, who were full of hope back in April, finished with a resounding home defeat to SBCI, for whom George Hampshire (92), Henry Lamper (61no) and Sam Hinchcliffe (61) piled on the runs in a total of 286-7.

Oliver Benson then took 5-64 to assist in skittling the mome team for 115.

In the Second Division, Bradshaw secured promotion by a slender three- point margin over third-placed Clayton, despite a surprise home defeat against Greetland.

The five points gained, however, was just enough to secure the move up a division.

Clayton must have thought that they were in with a chance at one stage as they took maximum points at eight-man Outlane.

It was not to be, however, despite Paul Artist (60) and Tim Evans (51no) scoring fifties in a 12-point maximum win.

Division Two champions Illingworth St Mary’s also finished with a maximum-points win, and a massive 242 points for the season, as they defeated visitors Mount by five wickets.

Altaf Hussain (46) top-scored for Mount, whilst Luke Grooksby (5-18) and Jamie Moorhouse (50no) had notable contributions for St Mary’s, who dropped only 22 points out of 264 in a record-breaking campaign.

Next-to-bottom Upper Hopton at least finished the season with a 12-point win as contributions from Paul Wild (76), Waseem Iqbal (5-50) and Jack Stephenson (4-53) ensured that Low Moor Holy Trinity ended the campaign on a low.
