League Leaders Delph And Dobcross Edge Out Golcar

Delph and Dobcross have maintained their position at the top of cricket’s Huddersfield League, thanks to a narrow win over Golcar in a low-scoring match on Saturday.

D&D won the toss and put the home side in to bat, and quickly had them in trouble. Wickets fell steadily as Golcar were restricted to 97 all out, professional Bilal Khiljee and Adnan Ghaus taking five wickets apiece.

Delph and Dobcross looked to be easing to victory at 69/2, but a flurry of wickets led to a few tense moments, before captain Grant Jones got the winning runs to secure a three-wicket triumph.

The scorecard and a match report can be seen at the D&D website here.

Delph and Dobcross remain six points clear of Kirkburton at the top of the league, with Honley a point further back in third and Golcar now a more distant fourth. The table can be viewed here.
