HOYLANDSWAINE Seconds are starting to look a good bet for a League and Cup double.
Back-to-back wins at the weekend have seen them consolidate at the top of Premiership Two, while also lifting the Paddock Shield.
This week they took a six-point maximum after walloping Elland by 10 wickets, Dan Hoyle (59no) and Stuart Wilson (34no) knocking off 97 without loss after the hosts went for 95, Jack Lockwood taking three for 10.
That victory gave Swaine a two-point lead, but it is tight at the top as second-placed Golcar beat Barkisland by two runs, while Kirkburton had a nine-wicket win over Shepley to stay just three adrift of the leaders.
Honley too are not out of the equation, although they were beaten by Scholes after Liam Fletcher made 68 and Josh Brook 44 in the visitors’ 222-9 tally.
Allan Cawtheray hit 63 and Chris Woodhead 53 in reply, but leg-spinner Jordan Saville claimed four for 27 to dismiss Honley for 161.
Graeme Hurlbatt refuses to lie down gracefully, and he went back to Lidgett Lane to haunt Skelmanthorpe (not for the first time) when he claimed three for 26 and then hit a match-winning top score of 69 not out to seal victory for Broad Oak.
