New Farn­ley’s cup defence on track

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - CRICKET -

PRI­EST­LEY CUP: Hold­ers New Farn­ley eased into the semi­fi­nal with a five-wicket win over Hang­ing Heaton.

Hav­ing al­ready knocked out their other top-three ri­vals, Pud­sey St Lawrence, no one left in the com­pe­ti­tion will hold any fears for the dou­ble-seek­ing side.

Callum Gel­dart (59) top scored in Heaton’s 224, but Alex Bald­win (48no) and Lee God­dard (67) led the suc­cess­ful run chase.

Kez Ahmed’s 4.5-over spell of 5-7 saw Gom­er­sal crash out for 87, which Sam Fran­k­land (42no) and Liam Collins (24no) passed to keep Wood­lands in the hunt for the tro­phy they won two years ago.

Kabir Bashir took 5-32, but could not pre­vent Jonathan Booth (99) and Harry Clewett (52) help­ing Townville to 288 be­fore Clewett picked up 4-61 as Wren­thorpe were dis­missed for 209.

Dan Hodg­son (68) and Patrick Kruger (50) were top scor­ers in Fars­ley’s 199-6 and, de­spite the ef­forts of Alex Stead (44) and No 9 Shoaib Has­san (31), Light­cliffe came up 24 runs short.
