Jon Lord had a fine weekend for Walsden’s reigning second team champions.

The former Mytholmroyd and Triangle player, now back at Scott Street, made 131 not out as his side overhauled Clifton’s 254 for five.

He followed up with an unbeaten 59 in a seven wicket win over Littleborough on Sunday, when Andrew Butcher (30 no) helped clinch victory.

Butcher had earlier helping dismiss the visitors for 112 with three for 41. Tyson Illingworth (four for 20) was also among the wickets.

Booth seconds’ game at home to Sowerby St Peters in the Halifax League last Saturday was over in a flash.

The visitors were bowled out for 20 by Robert Worsnop (seven for 10) and Jon Midgley (three for 10).

Having reached nine without loss, seven wickets went down for the addition of one run and the innings was completed in 10 overs.

Booth wrapped up a nine-wicket win.

Bridgeholme stalwart Keith Hudson hit a chanceless 100 as the Eastwood club’s seconds beat local rivals Old Town in the middle division.

Hudson carried his bat with six sixes and eight fours as Bridgeholme scored 227.

Quick runs from Zaheer Abbas, Hassan Mahmood and Ikram Mahmood boosted the total, Harry Hall taking four wickets for Old Town, who made only 112 in reply.
