LiverseDGE will be bidding to return to winning ways in Central Yorkshire League Division One after they lost the top two clash with leaders Carlton last weekend.

The Roberttown Laners surrendered second spot to Moorlands who lead them by just a point. Carlton have now extended their lead to six points over Liversedge who travel to seventh-placed Oulton tomorrow (Saturday, 1pm).

Opening bowlers David Winter and Simon Kay had Carlton on the rack at 32-5 but Chris Kippax hit back with 55 to rescue Carlton.

It was frustrating that the Liversedge batsmen could not manage to overhaul the leaders.

There is a busy weekend ahead for Scholes. Tomorrow the first XI aim to build on their excellent start to the season in Division Two when they entertain Buttershaw St Pauls A.

Scholes are currently second, six points behind Caribbean and will be looking to keep the pressure on with a win against the team who are eighth in the table.

In Division Three eighth-placed Scholes A are looking forward to tomorrow’s derby at 10th placed Liversedge A.

Andy Spencer has proved a rock for the seconds and last Saturday his quality came to the fore with a superb innings of 95.

He will need to be on form again this Sunday as Scholes travel to Yeadon in the quarter-finals of the Crowther Cup.

It will be a great occasion for the side and they will be doing all they can to reach the last four.
