SOLID TEAMWORK SEES OFF SUTTON scorecard

On a day of toil for bowlers, Oakworth met stern resistance from Sutton's Sam Solley who pinged 7 fours and 2 sixes in his 61 before a run out by Ben. The Sutton total reached 188-5 with 2 wickets for Jack D. Our batting openers did us proud with a 94 run partnership before leader Drew fell for better than a run-a-ball 58. Sam went on to make 37 with our coup-de-grace coming from Jack D with 15 no but our chase used just 33.2 overs to overhaul the Sutton total in emphatic style.

The Second Xl shared the honours with a win at Wide lane against Sutton lls. The visitors had 9 batsmen in single figures and only Dan Ridehalgh offered resistance with 76 with support from Mark Stoneman [15]. Really pleasing was the wicket-taking by our younger guns with pride of place gping to Ellis [4-23 in 12 overs], ably backed by 2 from Brad and 1 each from debutants Lewis and Jake; before the skipper got in on the act with 2-20. The Sutton 121 posting was passed in just 18 overs as all top order batsmen made scores; Niall 29, Brad 24, Lucas 26no and Jordan 43 no.

The Third Xl were unable to get back on the field after a downpour having made 76 and Congs on 22-0.


COWLING CUP DRAW

Oakworth lls are drawn at home to Sutton lls whilst the 3rd team will have to travel to Bradford & Bingley llls. Ties to be played Sunday 1st July.

JACK SEES US HOME scorecard

Jack Ellis, Joe Copperwaite and Lewis Wrathall shared the 9 Crossflatts wickets and restricted their batsmen to scoring at just 3.2 per over. After a 31-run opening stand the 'Flatts fell apart reaching 104-7. But junior, Jodi Town-Jones at no 11 knuckled down and scored 25no and the Flatts made 143-9. Oakworth openers Joel and Drew again to their bit scoring 27 apiece and a 48-run opening stand. Jim O'Hara engineered a middle-order collapse and at 85-5 'Flatts were in the hunt. Thankfully Jack Davison and Matty Lee [14] added 36 precious runs, but still 23 were needed to win. Jack Ellis fell for a duck and Jordan Powell added only 4, so Oakworth found themselves at 128-8. Rick Cavender [6] gritted it out with Jack D who ended 25no as a win came at 144-8 with 4 overs to spare. Oakworth now sit 2nd in the league.

61 YEAR LOW scorecard

Oakworth' score of 36 against local rivals Haworth  was a huge shock, the lowest in the derby since 1957. Only skipper Joel Gallagher made double figures as Will Yildiz [5-11] and old nemesis Damien Rowell [4-20] took our team apart. Haworth lost 1 wicket taking the points in a match that lasted just 26.5 overs.

At Wide Lane Bradley Powell turned up his bowling skills to full heat and claimed 4-36 to help limit Haworth lls to 147 all out. Sajjad Razak backed up well with 2-36. From 38-3 the situation was rescued by skipper Michael [56] and no 6 Rob Hopkinson [52] to claim 3 points on 151-4.


KEIGHLEY CUP DRAW

Keighley cup draw to be played by 2nd July. Ingrow V Bingley Congs . Harden v Sutton . Crossflatts v Denholme. Oxenhope v Oakworth

LEADERS DOWNED scorecard

Barrowford arrived at Oakworth with a 100% record and an opening stand of 85 augured well for a sixth straight win. Their skipper Jonny Ormerod made 51 with Ashir Imdad in support with 42. But it was a day for Jack Ellis to show his mettle with 5-35 in 12 overs and the Barrowford band-wagon slowed down significantly. That they reached 211-9 was in part due to some poor dropped catches from our boys. With the bat Oakworth were solid. Ben Howell, carrying an injury, chipped in 53 and Lewis Wrathall another 44 to underline his growing reputation. 33 from Joe and 24no from Rob at good rates propelled us to a 216-7 reply and a win with 32 balls in hand.

Watching from the sidelines it was great to see the Hollingsworth family, Ricky Linden, Richard Hook and Nivard Trowers and a decent crowd of drinkers!


CULLINGWORTH CONCEDE IN KEIGHLEY CUP

Oakworth First Xl have been awarded the 1st round Keighley Cup2000 as Cullingworth could not raise a team to play on Friday 25th May.

TOPSY-TURVY WEEK-END

Oakworth First Xl went from the sublime to the ridiculous over weekend of 19/20 May. On Saturday at Hepworth & Idle, the boys were on top batting form with a 116-run opening stand from Joel 46] and Drew [76]. Welcome returnee Lewis smashed 79 off just 61 balls and later Jack D added 52 from 44. The massive total of 321-7 proved too much for the home side as reliable Rick [4-24] and Jack E [3-43] contained them to 169 all out. A 152 run win!!

But it was a different tale on the Sunday at Bingley Congs who had Neil Copping smashing 122 from 66 balls after being dropped on nought! He had great back-up from Chris Dibb [64] on the way to 262-9. despite 4-45 from Joe and 3-39 from Ben.  This time, even without Matt Roberts, the boys were skittled for just 119 by Harry Greenhalgh [3-20] and Mohammed Adil [3-29], this time a 143 run defeat!! A turn-round of 295 runs over the weekend!!


TRIP TO WILSDEN IN WYNN CUP SECOND ROUND

Oakworth First Xl have been drawn away at Wilsden in the Wynn Cup second round to be played on Sunday 3rd June.

BATSMEN DOWN E & G WITH 15 TO SPARE IN WYNN CUP scorecard

Oakworth's bowling attack was led by Rick Cavender and 14 year old debutant Ellis Marshall and it was the youngster who took the first wicket at 27-1. The E & G batting was though marshalled by Jacob Roach with 8 fours and a six in his 76. Rick went on to take 3-32 with Ellis' 10 overs bringing 1-44. The E & G 10-man total of 168-9 was competitive and included 39 from Coneeley.

But the Oakworth batsmen found scoring much more conducive on the beginning-to-firm Wide Lane track. Skipper Joel continued his 2-year form line with another 39 whilst all-rounder Ben added another 58 to his mounting tally. Joe found form with 25 and Rob rounded off the win with 19 no. The victory came after 25 overs. E & G skipper Arnie Raistrick took 2-39 in his 10 overs.


TOP NOTCH TOP ORDER scorecard

A 69-run opening stand by skipper Joel [41] and Drew [39] set the tone and Ben [36] and Jack D [43] didn't waste it, helping post a really solid 200 all out against Wilsden. The bowlers finished the job with Jack's twirlers the best with 3-44 although 2 spectacular catches from ace-fielder Rob grabbed attention. Wilsden were 54 short and we remain unbeaten after 3 matches.

Rapid rise resurgent Riddlesden proved far too strong for the seconds who copped a 219 run defeat [Michael 46]. The Thirds batted gamely to reach 72 [Subhaan 34] with only 8 men in 32 overs, but Adie Weatherall saw off our weakened bowling attack in rapid time.


BEN & SAM TALENT SHOW scorecard

Ben Howell underlined his value to the Oakworth First XI with 50 runs and 3 wickets in a hard fought win at Haworth Road. Ben's 51 came up from 73 balls. But the telling innings for Oakworth came from back-in-harness Sam Nettleton with 43 from 61 balls. His innings came when Oakworth were 81-5, and helped propel Oakworth to 175-9. Mansha Khan did his best to stem the tide for the Baildon Bottom side with 5-35. 'Road' fell into trouble in the chase with 5 wickets falling for little return after Ben rattled out the top order with  3-40.

At 80-odd for 8 the Road seemed out of the reckoning but number-10 Kristian Hargreaves smashed 48 to give his side hope. His run out ended their challenge with Oakworth winners by 28 runs.

The third XI made their bow at Wide Lane and young Yorkshire Ladies starlet Lily Bell anchored the Bradley lls innings with an uneaten 63 in 143-7. Subhaan Ahmed [25no] and Dave Picton [19] pulled Oakworth into contention, but whilst a good response Oakworth concluded 34 runs short on 109-8, Frank Watkinson taking 4-26 for the victors.

OLD & NEW

Scorecard

The clock didn't know whether to turn forwards or backwards at distant Hepworth & Idle. New skipper Michael Scarborough certainly reversed it with a score of 90 which included nine 6s. His innings was the rock around which a score of 238-6 was built by the Second XI. But there was also terrific contributions from Niall [30], Steve [30], Bradley [26], Bilaal [25] and Lucas [21]. But that wasn't the end of it. With the ball Ellis Marshall set the clock future-facing with 3 for 7 from 6 very tight overs, and then Jack Davison twirled out 3-35 and the tail was cleaned up by mystery spinner Uwais Khan with 3-11 in just 18 balls. Result H & I all out for 113 and 3 points in the bag for the new skipper. Ohh and a warm welcome back into whites to Johnny Crossley!!

SUCCESSFUL FESTIVAL FOR OAKWORTH  

In 2010 Malsis School won 2 of the Festival Cups but after this year's festival they are now joined by Oakworth as double-winners on the day. Oakworth's emerging under-9s saw off Worth Valley rivals Oxenhope in their Final, and our strong under-13s came from behind to force a bowl-off with Lowerhouse to claim their Cup. Scintillating stuff from two bunches of cracking cricketers.


BOWLERS SEE u9s TO WIN  

Not for the first time Oakworth under-9s scraped a win against a good Steeton side thanks to their bowlers. Their 61 featured 13no for Ollie Thompson and another for run-machine Archie Dobson. But frugally and crucially lost only 2 wickets. The Steeton innings was well adrift after 3 pairings but Max Lampkin belted 4 fours in his 21 no to put his side back in the hunt.  The visitors tallied 73 runs but lost 5 wickets which left Oakworth the victors by just 3 runs, thanks to 2 wickets for Phoebe with 1 each to Archie, Jack and Sam.


BAD WEEK FOR u15s  

Oakworth u15s scored 121 and 128 on Monday and Wednesday but lost both matches. The first was an exit from the Hargreaves cup at the hands of Steeton. Shiv and Lucas both retired in the chase of Steeton's 138 but it wasn't enough. Against Skipton our unbeaten league record went despite 36 from Bilaal and 36 from Jake and a late knock from Josh. Both matches suffered from poor field setting as the bowlers toiled on hard wickets.


SETTLE SUCCUMB TO SUBHAAN & BRADLEY  

Anthony Clark 35 and Tom Darwin 20 batted well against OCC u15s but the Settle 16 over total reached just 70-4. Subhaan with a catch, a run-out and a wicket was a constant thorn in their side. Shiv with 14 was again bowled but league top-scorer Bradley rattled on to 29 no and after Bilaal was laos bowled for 12, Lucas finished the job at 74-2 in just 10 overs.


SUBHAAN & JOSH SKITTLE SUTTON

Sutton u15s innings at Royd Hill was severely curtailed at 58-9 by Subhaan Ahmed 3-1 and Josh Toner 3-10 with only George Elrick [38] making any headway. Bradley Powell led the charge to 60-2 with 20 whilst Subhaan 9no and Bilaal Khan 10no ended it [Jack Whitaker 2-12] after10 overs. The team now lie 4 points clear of the rest in UAJCA.


SENSATIONAL WIN PUTS U13s TOP

Many people's favourites Steeton CC visited Wide Lane and their early assault set up a challenging 125-5 total. Charlie Mitchell led their batting with 28 and had solid back-up from Wilf Roberts [24] and Rhys Troake [23]. Charlie Raby [2-2] and Stan Lloyd [2-18] were the pick of our bowlers on a hardening wicket.

With bat-in-hand we lost openers Charlie R and Jacob S for very little, but after consolidation James and Jake began to punish the Steeton attack, both retiring having taken the run rate beyond 7. The job was finished by Henry and Charlie J with 17no and 19. Amazingly we had passed the total with 3 overs in hand on 127-3, despite top bowling from Wilf Roberts [2-18]. Oakworth now top the table unbeaten in 3 matches in UAJCA [also unbeaten in AWJL]. #COTO


JACOB HELPS SHARKS CLIMB THE LADDER

Oakworth all-rounder Jacob Davies helped himself to 2 wickets and 16 no in a comfortable win against Skipton 'B' u-13s. The Skipton side tallied 50-8 in 20 overs as Henry Meynell scuttled 2 out with run-outs. None of our 9 bowlers went for more than 10.

Jacob teamed up with Elis Jones who made a sterling 18 before being bowled. 'CJ' saw us over the line in just 6.5 overs at 54-1.


STAN IS THE MAN

Oakworth visit to Aire-Wharfe u13s Bradford & Bingley continued our run of fine results in 2018. Chasing a substantial 105-5 total, Oakworth were led by Charlie Jackson and Jake Keslinke, both of whom retired.  The job wasn't yet complete but 2018 signing Stan Lloyd saw us home with 13no, accompanied by also not out Taylor Hawkins. #Unbeaten


A MATCH AT LAST FOR U11s

Having had their first two matches conceded by the opposition, Oakworth u11s sat at the top of their table, but Oxenhope soon knocked them off. Harry Robinson led the run-scorers with 7 but the very inexperienced managed just 174-8 [Net 38-8]. But again the bowlers gave hope of success with 3-7 from Tom Raby and 2 each for debutants Asim Khan and Jake Bailey. Oxenhope ran out winners by just 11 runs on 185-10


BOWLERS TAKE POINTS AT OXENHOPE

Two very young teams of under-9s met at Oxenhope and solid defence from Oakworth enabled a 45-4 score [nett 225-4]. Top scorers were skipper Joe Powell and debutant Freddie Greathead, each with 4. But it was the bowlers who stuck to their tasks as Oxenhope batters scored 58 runs but lost 8 wickets in the process. Joe, Freddie and surprise packet Archie Dobson each grabbed  a brace of wickets, whilst Harry Robinson kept wicket superbly  for Oakworth to take the match by a Nett 7 runs. scorecard


RAIN WINS

A likely competitive league match with Steeton was curtailed by mid-evening rain with Steeton u15s on 5-0 after 15 balls. Earlier Bradley had played  exceptionally well against some tight bowling but which slipped occasionally to allow us 15 extras. Bradley made a superb 35no. Opening partner Bilaal added 23no but the pull across the line from Lucas cost him his wicket and a duck. Ellis was left also not out on 7 in the 80-1 total in 16 overs.

2nd May 18


PRAISE FOR TOM

After the u13s game at Ben Rhydding, manager Andy was approached by the opposition scorer who purposely sought him out. He wanted to tell Andy how fantastic Junior Noodles Tom Raby had been while scoring. How polite and well mannered and such a great help to him scoring enjoying a bit of banter in the process, a great credit to the club. Andy has passed the feedback to his parents .
Brilliant Tom on behalf of Andy and the club!!!
