Beckwithshaw will be hunting a league double over local rivals Bilton on Saturday.

Ben Quick’s title-chasing men were comfortable winners when the two sides did battle earlier in the season at Bilton Lane.

With home advantage they will be favourites to keep their superb run of form going.

However, they will stay wary of a Bilton side improving week after week.

Saturday’s victory over Steeton was evidence they are on an upward curve after a poor start to the season.

Batting first they were bowled out for 212, Darren Blenkiron (59) and Paul Cannings (49) scoring the runs.

In reply the home side were blown away by Saj Ali (3-33) and Will Liddle’s superb 5-21 as they all out for 111.

For ‘Shaw, John Inglis came to the party against Otley. Chasing 224-4 he hit 105 as ‘Shaw came through for a five-wicket win.

Follifoot travel to Collingham on Saturday. Mike Halmshaw’s 56 not out saw them up to 97 against Ben Rhydding. Their opponents pulled through for a two-wicket win in reply.
