Woodhouse edge to KO Cup glory
YORKSHIRE LEAGUES KO CUP: Woodhouse Grange grabbed victory over Barnsley Woolley Miners with five balls and three wickets to spare.
Just 24 hours after having their chance of a head-to-head with York for the Yorkshire North championship rained off, Grange at one stage looked as though they were in for a second disappointment.
Barnsley made a solid start with their first six batsmen, led by Eli Richards with a half century, each making double figures and at 192-5 they looked set for a big score.
But Simon Tennant then produced a 7.3-over spell of 4-29 against a struggling tail and Barnsley only managed to add another 27 runs to their tally.
Grange openers, Andrew Bilton (35) and Tom Young (23), put on 50, but with Steve Nuttall picking up 3-24 they looked vulnerable when they were reduced to 137-6.
However, captain James Finch (31no) was unmoveable and with Richard Walton, who hit six fours and four sixes in a quickfire 60, put on 78 for the seventh wicket and the cup was soon won.
