Cawthorne confirmed promotion into the Huddersfield Premiership for the first time ever on Saturday.
Rain late on Saturday afternoon caused most of the weekend's games to be cancelled but Cawthorne avoided it as they bowled bottom club Almondbury out for 75 before securing a seven-wicket success. That meant they are certain to finish in the two promotion spots while victory tomorrow might confirm top spot.Cawthorne are chasing a treble as they have already won the Oddfellows Cup and will face hosts Thongsbridge in the final of the Twenty20 Shield on Sunday. Reigning Premiership champions Hoylandswaine will compete in the Twenty20 Trophy after Ben Potter (121) and Ryan Robinson (127) starred in a victory at Skelmthorpe in the league on Saturday. Swaine made 376 then Skelmanthorpe were set a restricted total of 240 from 26 overs but fell short on 128 for five.
Barnsley's 132 all out was not enough to reach the Yorkshire League Cup final as they lost by four wickets to Yorkshire Academy. The two teams had previously met in the league on Saturday but it was rained off while York won and moved ahead of Barnsley into first place.
In the South Yorkshire League, Worsbrough Bridge bowled Wombwell Main out for 46 before sneaking to a three-wicket win in their low-scoring top-of-the-table derby in Division Three East. Worsbrough’s Liam Levitt and Liam Hague claimed five wickets each then Bridge struggled to their target as Wombwell’s Joe Ashurst claimed four for 22. Worsbrough are now top, three points clear of second-placed Tickhill 2nd XI and a further nine ahead of third-placed Wombwell who are facing a battle to get back in the promotion places with three games to go.
The rain was most cruel on Pontefract League side Darton. After Ben Wood (five for 30) helped bowl Streethouse out for 130, Darton were 122 for two in the 18th over when rain stopped play. Victory would have increased Darton's lead in Division Three but they will still go up by winning two of the remaining three matches.
