In-form Hanging Heaton captain Gary Fellows hit his third Allrounder Bradford League Premier Division century of the season during his side’s victory over Bradford and Bingley last Saturday.

Fellows made a superb 101 and with two tons already to his name in the Priestley Cup has scored 956 runs in all 50 over competitions for his club this season.

Fellows has amassed 503 runs in league matches - more than any other batsman in the Premier Division - and his latest knock helped his side to post a score of 240-6 on their way to a 20-point haul.

Fellows and Nick Connolly (76) shared an opening stand of 179 as the home attack were made to toil. Matthew Walker (3-46) and Yassir Abbas (3-65) shared the wickets to fall.

Bingley struggled against the pace of David Stiff (4-9) and spin of Muhammed Rameez (3-30) as they were bowled out for 112.

Heaton lie second in the table, 26 points behind Pudsey St Lawrence, who defeated Morley by 26 runs.

St Lawrence recovered from a mid-innings wobble against the bowling of spinner David Nebard (4-62) to make 222-6.

Last season’s Division Two champions did make a spirited reply with opener James McNichol hitting 61 in their total of 196.

Spinner Steve Watts (4-40) ensured that St Lawrence secured the win, which keeps them out in front at the top.
