Methley lift the title

Posted in News

Methley held off the challenge of last year’s champions Townville to lift the Premier Division title they last won five years ago by a single point. Although Methley were restricted to four points in their two-wicket win over Mirfield Parish, Townville were unable to garner the six points they needed to take top spot. They, too, had to settle for a minimum return from a six-wicket success against Hunslet Nelson. Backmarkers Hopton Mills, promoted last year, lost at Wrenthorpe and go down despite finishing level on points with Nelson, who retained top flight status by virtue of a superior net run rate.
