Cleethorpes maintained their lead at the top of the Premier Division after a last-over one-wicket win over last season’s champions, Sheffield Collegiate, at Abbeydale. After being asked to bat first, the hosts got off to a good start with a 69-run opening stand between Jack Timby (36) and Abdul Faseeh (45). But after both were run out, the slow bowlers applied the brakes to restrict Collegiate to 165-7, Mayank Mishra taking 3-26. In reply, four of Cleethorpes first five passed 20, but none could go on to make a substantial score against Jamie Carrington (4-56) and Shaaiq Choudhry (3-46), and the game was eventually settled by two sixes from the visitors’ number 11, Matthew Owen. Wakefield Thornes hold on to second place after a four-wicket win over Shiregreen at Field Lane. The visitors were all out for 125 after being put in to bat, Jawad Akhtar and Sijomon Joseph each taking four wickets, whilst Arsalan Mir top-scored for the visitors with 45.
