Ouseburn grabbed a six-wicket win to dent Pannal’s title aspirations on Saturday.

J Strover (32) topscored as Pannal found it heavy going against J Bryant (4-30) and B Bettlewell (4-56), posting a slender 120.

T Parker crafted a knock of 53 and D Burton 35 to steer Ouseburn home at 124-4.

Blubberhouses were felled by Dacre Banks, posting 154 before they were bowled out with N Brown (40) making the most headway against S Butler (5-26) and S Lawrence (3-39).

Sturdy efforts from W Aslam (74) and W Rasheed (34no) led Dacre to victory at 158-3.

Spofforth got back to winning ways in comfortable style, trouncing Burton Leonard.

Will Long (71), skipper Tom Clark (82no), Jonny Ross (55) and James Roberts (35) all starred with the willow as the champions racked up 273-3.

Ross collected 3-14 as Burton were ousted for 62 in reply.

Helperby were too much for Goldsborough to overcome, A Chouhan (46) topscoring as they posted 191-8 batting first.

G Shorter (4-42) and B Mackrill (3-37) impressed with the ball, but Goldsborough struggled in reply. Apart from J Jackson’s knock of 64, no batsman scored above 14 as Chouhan (3-29) and A Darnell (4-25) limited them to 124 all out.

Killinghall eased to success against Hampsthwaite, amassing 208-6 largely thanks to star batsman D Lawrence, whose 113 not out laid the foundations for a hefty total.

Hamp’ were all out for 74 in reply, A Ruston plundering 3-35.

Alne were thumped by Bishop Thornton to the tune of ten wickets, accruing 124-8 batting first while S Brennand captured 3-18.

Thornton’s C Baldwin (51no) and R Nelson (69no) knocked them off at 128 in reply.

Meanwhile in Division Two, Harrogate Strays suffered a seven-wicket defeat to Birstwith.

Maybe this was down to lucky mascot Riley Hirst, aged two, who opened the batting for Birstwith.

Harrogate were bowled out for 164, B Bartlett topscoring with 42, while N Wain collected 4-35 and G Hirst 3-21.

Birstwith cantered home at 167-3 thanks to steady knocks from J Millward (71), and D Riley (34).

Knaresborough Forest kept Pateley Bridge at bay, posting 217-7 batting first courtesy of good work from N Jones (40) and D Skaith (62).

C Langley hit 62 and T Fryer 30 in reply but Pateley were bowled out for 162 with J Ainsley (3-57) and Skaith (3-25) the chief destroyers.

Darley overpowered Studley Royal by five wickets, skittling them for 75 largely through R Best (4-21) and J Furniss (3-12).

Darley were home and hosed at 78-5.

Galphay and Winksley were defeated by Scotton, I Campbell scalping 5-18 and T Halliday 3-9 to skittle Galphay for 85.

A knock of 54 by G Harland compounded a miserable day for Galphay as Scotton eased home at 88-2.

West Tanfield romped to 252-6 against Masham, who found themselves all out for 167 in reply.

A mammoth ton of 140 steered Ripley to 247-7 against Newby Hall, the man responsible D O’Malley.

Grant Leivers bagged 3-48 but Newby were stopped at 175-9 in reply, in spite of Andy Robinson hitting 60 and Grant Leivers 42.
