There are new 50-over record holders in Drakes League cricket – Delph & Dobcross.

The Huddersfield Road Premiership co-leaders fired 528-5 against Marsden in their held-over first-round clash in the All Rounder Cricket Sykes Cup.

It carried them to a massive 406-run victory against the Jedi Sports Championship bottom club and a second-round tie against Moorlands in Mirfield.

Delph’s 528 total is a record for all limited-overs cricket in the Drakes – League and Cup – but not an all-time record.

Honley hold the Sykes Cup highest total of 557, set in 1952 against Broad Oak when overs were unlimited.

The highest limited-overs team score in the League remains the 454-4 posted by Clayton West against Hall Bower in 2010, which was in the Championship (second tier).

Lancashire all-rounder Arron Lilley led the run-scoring for Delph against Marsden, firing 186, and he was backed up by 100 from Graeme Simpson.

That was after the in-form Greg Buckley had posted 85 and opener Andrew Gleave, the skipper, 60, while teenage Lancashire prospect Nathan Jones was 56 not out at the end.

Delph raced to 100-1 in 14.5 overs and were 156-3 off 23 when Buckley and Gleave were out caught. The onslaught continued from there.

In reply, only two Marsden players reached double figures – Kyle Reagan with 67 and Martin Clee with 14 – as they were sent back for 122.

Lilley’s 186 is not an individual record – but that was still achieve by a Delph & Dobcross player.

That was by well-known South African professional Brandon Nash against Shelley in 2004, when he hammered 235 in a 50-over contest.

The League record is still held by Shahid Nawaz, who blased 280 not out for Almondbury against Penistone in 1993, in the old Section B.
