ANDY Bryant grabbed a hat-trick in a return of 5-8 as Barwick in Elmet won by 29 runs at Shadwell in a low-scoring Fred Fleetwood Cup second round tie on Sunday.

Matthew Prosser held Barwick’s innings together with a crucial 71 as they were toppled for 115 by Brad Taylor (4-15), Connor Carson (2-27) and Oliver Scholey (2-31).

In reply, Carson’s 40 was in vain for Shadwell who were routed for 86 by Bryant and Rob Nicholls (4-15).

Division Two leaders Garforth Parish Church, who knocked out holders Wetherby in the first round, coasted to an eight-wicket victory against Thorner Mexborough.

Tom Spurr claimed 5-10 and Darren Childe had figures of 2-1 in an eight-over spell that featured seven maidens as Thorner were bowled out for 82.

Jamie Stockton struck an unbeaten half-century as Garforth comfortably knocked off the runs. Jim Shaw (20) was Thorner’s top scorer and Josh Walker (2-28) their best bowler.

Division Three promotion-chasers Long Marston defeated Division Two South Milford.

Andy Acaster (4-18), Steve Barnitt (2-14) and Joe Eyles (2-32) dismissed Milford for 121, replying to Marston’s 160-6 that featured 64 from Simon Lewis.

St Chad’s eased to an 89-run win against Division Three side Rufforth. Rashid Khan (33), Howard Johnson (31) and Veera Gnanasigamani (34) steered St Chad’s to 159.

Rufforth’s Edward White, Cameron Sanderson and Dom Midgeley each bagged two wickets.

Rufforth’s reply never got going. Sanderson (14) and Danny Gunnell (11) were the only batsmen who reached double figures as they were bowled out for 70 by Atiq Khan (3-24), Richard Kerr (3-14) and Sultan Mehmood (2-9).

Division One strugglers Walton, still without a league win this season, put their poor league form behind them to beat Church Fenton by 111 runs.

Jabbar Ahmed grabbed 4-28 as Fenton fell for 124, chasing Walton’s 233-9 that included 47 by Suhail Iqbal.

Hillam and Monk Fryston repeated last month’s league win over Division Two rivals Scholes by knocking them out the cup.

Dan Johnson’s half-century guided Hillam to a six-wicket success after Sammy Wainwright (3-14) and Eric Frankland (3-26) had restricted Scholes to 139.

James Biscombe (54) led the Scholes scoring.

Ian Hutchison (5-13), Tom Reece (2-13) and Graham Hutchison (2-7) set up Bilton in Ainsty’s seven-wicket win against Old Modernians by routing them for 51.

Last season’s losing finalists Great Preston, who are switching to the Central Yorkshire League next season, had a walk-over in their second-round tie against East Keswick.

The quarter-final draw is St Chad’s v Great Preston, Bilton in Ainsty v Long Marston, Walton v Barwick in Elmet, Garforth Parish Church v Hillam and Monk Fryston. Ties to be played June 29.

Last season’s losing finalists Old Modernians host Old Leodiensians in the Senior Evening Cup second round next Tuesday (June 17).

The other ties are Whixley v Kirk Hammerton, Rufforth v Bilton in Ainsty, Shadwell v Barwick in Elmet, Scholes v Scarcroft, Church Fenton v Great Preston, South Milford v Kippax, Crompark v St Chad’s.
