Moorlands moved out of the Drakes Huddersfield League Premiership relegation zone thanks to a terrific win over Delph and Dobcross.

David Winn claimed 5-42 and Chris Lloyd 4-48 as Moorlands dismissed the Lancashire side for 206, despite the efforts of G Buckley (98) and G Simpson (45).

W Binns made 45 in reply but Moorlands lost eight wickets and were grateful for the efforts of Lloyd, who finished 30 not out, to steer the Mirfield side to an important two-wicket victory.

Victory leaves Heckmondwike and Carlinghow third, level on 89 points with Mount, who defeated Netherton by eight wickets.
