Bridgeholme Triumph For First Ever Trophy WIn

An intriguing encounter at Queensbury CC saw Bridgeholme, for the very first time, win the twenty-seventh playing of the final of the Sunday League’s cup competition, beating favourites Illingworth St Mary’s by 64 runs. On a day when the weather was very kind, albeit with a stiff wind blowing across the highest cricket ground in the UK at 1,186 feet, the attendance was well above expectations and spectators enjoyed an excellent contest. Locals of course described the above wind, to the sea-level anoraks, as ‘nowt but a little breeze’!

Parish Cup & Crossley Shield Results From Sunday

Parish Cup: There were no real shocks in the Parish Cup First Round with all but a few ties going the way of League seniority. The win of Illingworth St Mary’s, whose Matthew Smith hit 101 not out, at Division One Blackley was no real surprise as the newcomer has already set out its promotion stall in Division Two. There was a tight affair between two other newcomers at Leymoor as Birchencliffe scraped home by one-wicket and it was a similar story at Premier Division Northowram HT where First Division Cullingworth lost by a similar margin.
