Hanging Heaton and Woodlands proved too strong for their Huddersfield League opponents as they eased into the Solly Sports Heavy Woollen Cup quarter-finals last Sunday.

Hanging Heaton recorded an eight-wicket win away to Moorlands, while Woodlands defeated Mirfield Parish Cavaliers by 212 runs.

Moorlands were bowled out for 192 at Memorial Park, thanks largely to an impressive late knock of 46 not out from number nine Chris Stott.

Opener Andrew Fortis had earlier made 33, while overseas player Muhammed Rameez was pick of the Hanging Heaton bowlers with 3-30.

Gary Fellows and Nick Connolly (31) shared a 91-run opening wicket partnership to put Heaton on course for victory.

Fellows was eventually caught on the boundary for 97 in an innings which included 14 fours and two sixes.

Richard Foster (35no) and Callum Geldart then guided Heaton over the finish line with 21 overs to spare.

Geldart finished the game in impressive style hitting three big sixes to finish 21 not out from just seven balls.

Woodlands racked up 301-8 against Huddersfield League Championship side Mirfield Parish Cavaliers.

Sam Frankland (70), Liam Collins (60), captain Tim Jackson (38) and Alex Atkinson (35) all made contributions to the impressive Woodlands total, while Danny Padgett was the best Parish bowler as he claimed 3-64.

Parish were dismissed for 89 in reply as Kez Ahmed (5-17) and Mark Lawson (3-36) ensured there was little problems for the unbeaten Bradford Premier Division side.

The Huddersfield League do have two representatives in the last eight.

Kirkburton racked up 336-7 and then dismissed Birstall for 198, while last season’s beaten finalists, Hoylandswaine bowled Methley out for 163 on their way to securing a four-wicket win.

Morley appeared on course to pull off a cup upset against South Yorkshire Premier side Whitley Hall.

Morley were bowled out for 163 with James McNichol hitting 57 at the top of the innings and captain Oliver Halliday (42) supporting.

They had Whitley Hall in trouble until a crucial 57 by Callum Bethel revived their hopes and the visitors survived the scare to edge home by just two wickets.

Quarter-final draw (to be played June 11): New Farnley v Woodlands, Hanging Heaton v Townville, Whitley Hall v Hoylandswaine, Kirkburton v Wrenthorpe,
