Report – 5th August

Premier Division

Champions Attock could make just 61-8 (T Eldred 3-8) against Sheffield Collegiate, who raced to the win by 10 wickets, which gives Collegiate second spot. In the match between the relegated pair of Kashmir and Frecheville, Kashmir made 101-6 (N Abdul 67*), Frecheville gaining some succour for a poor season with a comfortable nine wicket win (T Saxelby 71* T Powell 31). Sheffield Waterworks scored 119-8 (J Smedley 30 A Gaffar 3-19) and restricted to 91-7. Darnall hit up 165-5 (R Hussain 57 N Hussain 46), but saw Khan attain the score with 5 balls to spare and 3 wickets down (R Akhtar 60 F Mohammed 40 Z Ahmed 30*).

 

Division A

Sheffield Friends scored 148-5 (J Younis 54 S Azam 44), Abbeydale were kept to 121-9 (J Younis 3-12 I Ahmed 3-24), which secures a return to the top division for Friends. In a thrilling game, Hollinsend Methodists were 144 all out (R Wadsworth 68 J Rodgers 45 M Rajeeb 4-21), Sharrow sneaking by to win by 4 wickets from the very last ball (G Khan 36 I Ul Haq 31). Champions Nether Edge lost their 100% win record, after making 94-7 (S Raja 47 C Weerasinghe 3-18), Sheffield University Staff went to the win by 7 wickets (N Mohammed 34* D Hettiarchi 33* A Khan 3-16). Relegated from Division A are Hollinsend and Coal Aston, who had no game in the last round of matches.

 

Division B

Champions Millhouses Works were shot out for 50 (A Khan 3-9 N Penfold 3-11), which The Wednesday eased past with 4 wickets down. De La Salle secured the second promotion spot as their 144-3 was utterly dominated by Kieren O’Sullivan with 114 not out. Ridgeway were dismissed for 108 (A Morley 43* T Venn 4-38). Outokumpo Stainless amassed 193-3 (E Kirkby 77 C Wilson 57 M Lambert 40) and despite a valiant effort, Lodgers concluded their innings at 150-4 (J Sharp 48* G Anderson 41). Caribbean conceded their game with Norton Woodseats and are relegated, as are Lodgers.

 

Division C

 

Telecom Sports scored 110-4 and held bottom team to Brincliffe 80-8. This allows telecom to slip into the second promotion spot behind Sharrow II. Sharrow were unable to chase the Aviva score of 116-6 (G Buckton 35*), closing on 58-7 (J Williams 3-23). Woodhouse made 169-3 (S Ali 90 R Wilson 44*), Hollinsend II ending on 153-3 (B Hill 88). Oughtibridge notched up 121-6 (L Haigh 41* J Maiden 3-31), Sheffield Transport reaching 94-7 in their reply.

Premier Division

Frecheville, already relegated, made 97-6 (T Saxelby 41) against the champions Attock, who won by 7 wickets (A Mir 34* C Morton 3-17). Khan scored 154-7 (Fida Mohammed 48 Fayyaz Mohammed 36* N Abdul 3-23 S Askar 3-43) and restricted Kashmir to 129-4 (S Khan 32), which condemns Kashmir to the drop. Sheffield Collegiate mustered just 82-7 (B Rooke 45*), Sheffield Waterworks got the runs in a flood, losing only 2 wickets before gaining the win (H Bliss 37 B Woon 31*). Darnall made 92-7 (M Banaris 36 S Raza 4-14), which TOA reached with 4 down. This puts Waterworks and Darnall level in the battle for second spot.

 

Division A

Nether Edge are promoted as champions, as they chased down Coal Aston’s 116 all out without loss (B Khan 68*). Sheffield Friends took a huge step toward Premier Division status as they beat rivals University Staff. The Edge scored an impressive 145-3 (R Bakshi 70* J Younis 49) and Staff failed the test, ending on 110-7. Abbeydale scored 102-8 (Green 3-22 N Thew 3-22), then held Hollinsend Methodists to 78-9 (Tariq 5-22). Hollinsend are therefore relegated, but they could be joined by one of Sharrow, Coal Aston or Abbeydale.

 

Division B

Millhouses Works sealed the title by surpassing Caribbean’s 129-7 (R Everitt 3-12) without the openers being parted (R Dewsbury 65* D Major 57*). The race for the second spot is led by De La Salle. They amassed 154-3 (K O’Sullivan 80 S Wainwright 33), then held Lodgers to 71-6 (R Fenwick 3-16). Lodgers are now relegated alongside Caribbean. The Wednesday scored 112-6 (B Kapala 33), which was just enough to beat Outokumpo Stainless, who ended at 109-8 (T Starkes 47 A Naseby 3-28). The Wednesday are just a point behind the Sallians, but Wednesday have the champions to play in their final fixture. De la Salle will travel to Ridgeway, who made 107-3 (M Bull 44 R Tate 35), Norton Woodseats passing this with a single wicket down (R Bird 68*).

 

Division C

 

A very strong Sharrow II scored 135-7 (A Nasim 3-35) and blew away promotion hopefuls Oughtibridge for 65 (Z Javid 3-18). Oughtibridge slip a point behind Telecom, who routed Sheffield Transport for a paltry 37 all out. Telecom Sports winning by nine wickets. Hollinsend II scored 105-3 (J Commander 48), Aviva ending at 95-9 (P Marsh 35 Z Vessey 5-22). Woodhouse scored 74-4 and limited Brincliffe to a mere 49-6.

Report – 22nd July

Premier Division

Attock have regained their seeming birthright – yet another Premier Division title after Collegiate victory last summer. Last Wednesday, Attock made 158-4 (T Khan 57 A Mir 48) and restricted Khan to 144-4 (Z Ahmed 54 H Younis 33*). Attock are an insurmountable 7 points clear of second placed Darnall and Collegiate with just 2 games remaining. Darnall needed to beat Kashmir last week to stay in with a shout, but Kashmir’s 161-4 (A Naheem 57* K Javed 30 M Hussain 3-25) was 20 more than Darnall could reach, as they ended on 141-6 (M Banaris 35*). Sheffield Waterworks scored 162-6 (W Hale 86 C Morton 3-36), which Frecheville chased down, losing 4 wickets on the way (T Saxelby 50 M Dexter 48). Despite this, Frecheville are relegated. TOA scored 111-8 (Q Raja 33 R Khan 31), Sheffield Collegiate passed this with 7 wickets in hand (B Root 59*). TOA must win both of their last 2 games to ensure their Premier Division status remains intact.

 

Division A

Sheffield Friends scored 108-6 (S Shah 32), but saw relegation threatened Coal Aston reach the target with 6 wickets down (E Tye 49*). This result means that without having a fixture, Nether Edge are promoted as champions. Sheffield Friends must battle it out with Sheffield University Staff for the second promotion spot. These sides meet this Wednesday at Warminster Road. The winner is almost certain to go up. Last week, chasing Hollinsend Methodists 118-3 (M Parker 40), University Staff gained a 3 wicket win. Sharrow were bundled out for 71 (M Basharat 4-10 Z Ali 3-24) by Abbeydale, who went on to win by 8 wickets (S Khan 32).

 

Division B

With two games left in the division, three sides are battling it out for promotion. Top are Millhouses Works, who made 128-5 (C Sampson 42 A Roberts 3-22 & hat-trick) and stifled Ridgeway completely, who ended at 79-9 (D Spilman 3-19). Four points behind are De La Salle. They limited Norton Woodseats to a mere 64-8 (R Fenwick 3-8 T Venn 3-18). De La Salle losing just 2 wickets before gaining the win (Bunney 32*). A single point behind DLS are The Wednesday. They bowled out Lodgers for 88 (J Smith 3-2 A Naseby 3-16 A Khan 3-19) and won by 6 wickets. Outokumpo Stainless made 111-2 (E Kirkby 42*), Caribbean ending on 108-6 (J Ahmed 47 M Lambert 4-26). This result sends the once powerful Caribbean down into the bottom division.  

 

Division C

 

In the battle between the top two, Telecom Sports were 121 all out (S Narri 38 Z Abbas 3-32). Sharrow II passed the target with 5 in hand (M Ilyas 41* D Lazenby 3-24). One more win will see Sharrow promoted, but this Wednesday they play second placed Oughtibridge. In their match, Oughtibridge scored 107-8 (C Clark 36 M Hill 3-14) and opponents Hollinsend II were dismissed for 79 (B Brown 4-14 C King 4-24). Telecom could still go up, but are now reliant on a mistake by the top two. Aviva reached 93-2 (C Turner 53*) against Woodhouse, who lost just a solitary wicket in a successful run chase (S Ali 51*). The match between Sheffield Transport and Brincliffe was forfeited by Brincliffe.
