Parkhead had a comfortable home win against Hollinshead as they look to win their record 11th MPH Joinery Yorkshire & Derbyshire League title.

Chris Turner took 8-31 as the visitors were dismissed for just 80. Their total would have been even less impressive without an unbeaten 40 by Chris Jones.

In reply Jamie Carrington (36 not out) and Adam Burkinshaw made quick inroads.

Burkinshaw eventually fell for 31 as he was caught by Nathan Thew off the bowling of Michael Parker.

But it merely delayed the inevitable as Joe Woolway joined Carrington to knock off the remaining 28 runs.

Other top flight teams to record outright wins were Holmesfield, who rattled up 226-7 (William Hellewell 72) before dismissing visitors De La Salle for 103.

Stocksbridge, who came close to winning the title last season, scraped past Hundall’s 116 with two wickets to spare as Wayne Hughes 57 helped the hosts reach 119-8.

Last year’s champions Sheffield University Staff (158-5) had an incomplete win away at Sheffield Centralians (157-8).

And Apperknowle knocked off Grindleford’s 134-8 for the loss of just two wickets as John Bagley led the way with 71 not out.
