Elland completed a weekend double in the Huddersfield League with a fine win at Delph & Dobcross, although the absence of Aaron Lilley from the home ranks because of Lancashire CCC commitments helped their cause.

Hard-hitting Niall Lockley (82) showed the way to a comfortable eight-wicket success.

Barkisland had to settle for a point at second-placed Kirkburton but remain clear of the relegation slots.

Spinner Matthew Steers took four for 48 to limit Kirkburton to 187 for nine but Barkisland could only manage 164 for seven in reply with Jamie Summerscales top scoring on 47 and Lorenzo Ingram contributing 35 not out.

Todmorden slipped to 10th in the Lancashire League when they lost by 15 runs at home to Nelson yesterday.

Crumbs of comfort were provided by Kristian Garland (39) and Freddie Priestley (26), who both made their highest league scores in the first team.
