BARNSLEY Woolley Miners captain Beck Frostick smashed a rapid century in a win over leaders Tickhill which kept them in contention for the Yorkshire Premier League South title.
The Shaw Laners are now fourth, 22 points off Doncaster Town who replaced Tickhill as leaders. There are nine games remaining in the season.
Frostick said: “We’re catching up on a few teams. We just have to stay consistent and keep winning. We will probably have to win every game, or near enough. Our aim is to win every week anyway. We have won five out of the last six games in all competitions. We’re on a good run and hopefully everything is coming together at the right time.
“The aim is to win the league but, if we finished in the top four, we would be happy. We have Aston Hall next who are struggling a bit this season but they can be very dangerous. We have to turn up and prove why we are in fourth.”
Frostick carried his bat with 126 not out off 90 balls with 13 fours and five sixes as Barnsley posted 191.
Tickhill were 44 for one but collapsed to 98 all out. Oliver Jackson took four wickets and Ali Jahangir three.
Frostick said: “I was quite pleased. It’s my first league hundred so to get it against top of the league in quite a crucial game in our season, I was quite happy.
“I said to the other opener Shaz (Sheryaar Ali) after the first over, I am just going to change my arm a little bit.
“Luckily it paid off. I told the boys before the game my gameplan was to try to attack their main bowler who is the leading wicket-taker in the league, so he couldn’t settle. I managed to hit him for three sixes in the first two overs and that set me on my way. But the main thing is we got an important win as a team.”
