PRI­EST­LEY* CUP: The pre­dicted match of the round be­tween the top two in the Brad­ford Premier ended in anti-cli­max when Pud­sey St Lawrence for­feited the game to cup hold­ers New Farn­ley.

Lee God­dard (104) and An­drew Hodd (57) had been the main con­trib­u­tors to Farn­ley’s 226. Luke Jarvis then took 4-13 as Saints stum­bled to 63-8 in 25 overs be­fore con­ced­ing the match when rain in­ter­vened.

Hang­ing Heaton went through af­ter win­ning a high scor­ing match at Meth­ley, who set the pace through Adal Is­lam (78) and Jor­dan La­ban (88no) with a tar­get of 274-5.

Joe Fraser (48) and Cal­lum Gel­dart (33) gave the vis­i­tors a solid plat­form and Ben KohlerCad­more (78no) and Ish­mail Da­wood (73no) saw the job through.

Alex Stead hit 122 and with half cen­turies from Jonathan Wilson and Sule­man Khan, Light­cliffe set a for­mi­da­ble 314-4 tar­get. East Bier­ley never got started and four wick­ets each from Chris Green­wood and Josh Wheat­ley saw them crash out for 94.

Gom­er­sal will fly the Cham­pi­onship One flag in the next round af­ter a con­vinc­ing win over Bat­ley. Richard Wear (111) and Jack Sed­don (71) shared a cen­tury stand to build on Liam Thomas’s 60 as Gom­er­sal set a tough 308-8 tar­get.

De­spite the ef­forts of Naveed Za­mu­rad (73), Bat­ley were dis­missed for 197, Wear pick­ing up 3-32.

James Wain­man (52no) and Dan Hodgson (40no) steered Fars­ley past Sc­holes’s 106 in just 13 overs, while Wood­land de­fended their 156 to­tal, Muham­mad Bi­lal (5-18) and Chris Brice (3-20) dis­miss­ing Cleck­heaton for 92.

A 4-10 spell from Jack Heb­den helped bowl out Hun­slet Nel­son for 80 and even though Townville slumped to 41-7, Harry Clewett (25no) and Alexan­der Page (11no) put them into the next round.
