BARKISLAND’S Daniel Sykes has 38 League victims in the Drakes League Second Elevens and needs just two more to win the race to the Examiner’s £50 prize for the first bowler to reach the 40 target.
Sykes leads the race from a trio of Kirkheaton players led by Martin Hallas (34), John Phayer (32) and Sam Atkinson (31).
And ironically, Barkisland entertain Kirkheaton at their Woodfield ground today!
The highlight of the Second Eleven season takes place next Sunday, when Shepley will entertain Elland in the final of the Spectrum Interiors Paddock Shield. Both clubs will be looking for their first success for a long time, Elland last winning in 1989 and Shepley in 1973.
