Mahmood superb in Bridgeholme victory

BRIDGEHOLME overcame a slow start to beat Luddenden Foot by 164 runs in Division Two of the Towergate Halifax League.

The visitors could only muster 22 runs in the first eight overs before Saj Ramzan (63) was brilliantly caught in the deep by Maddocks while M.Abid batted superbly for his 102 before being stumped by Alan Eastwood.

Nick Hyde took five wickets as Bridgeholme were sent back for 277.

Foot never got to grips with the reply as Bridgeholme’s opening bowler Taufeeq Mahmood returned superb figures of eight for 58, sending the home side packing for just 113.
