Everitt ton in Millhouses win

MATCH of the day in the top division took place at Millhouses Works. Batting first, the home side made 249-8 with Richard Everitt scoring 129. Third-placed Holmesfield were never in the hunt, and closed at 125-8 (Neil Pearson 54 no).

League leaders Parkhead kept their position in a clash with Sheffield University staff.

Chris Turner claimed 4-22 as the visitors were bowled out for 83 chasing what appeared to be a modest Parkhead score of 143-8.

There was an exciting game at De La Salle OB. Visitors Apperknowle were restricted to 122-9 with Mark Simmerson claiming a useful 4-18. The home side lost nine wickets in reaching their target, with White scoring an impressive half century.

In division two, top side Stocksbridge won their sixth consecutive game at the out of form Ridgeway. The home side were all out for 142 and James Ward scored an unbeaten 70 in a six-wicket win.

In division four, there were remarkable figures for J O’Sullivan of De La Salle who bowled five overs, taking five wickets for no runs as Chesterfield Barbarians were dismissed for 87. This however, proved to be a winning score as De La Salle fell six runs short as they could only muster 81 in reply. Barbarians now take over at the top of the table.
