Gormley and Halliday shine as Yeadon extend their unbeaten start to 15 matches
Last weekend was doubly good for Yeadon as they recorded two wins to extend their unbeaten start to the JCT600 Bradford League Division Two season to 15 games.
Off-spinner Damon Gormley demonstrated why he is again topping the Division Two bowling averages by taking 5-31 as Yeadon dismissed Bankfoot before cruising to a seven-wicket win.
Gormley was well supported by left-arm spinner Ben Elvidge (4-33), then skipper James Todd made 40 as Yeadon eased to their target.
The outstanding individual performance of Yeadon’s weekend came from Oliver Halliday.
He hit a magnificent 134 not out as the leaders defeated Windhill by 158-runs on Sunday. Halliday hammered nine sixes and ten fours as he shared in a fourth-wicket stand of 135 with Ben Elvidge (60).
Mahmood Rasool took 4-38 and Nick Hudson (3-9) as Windhill were dismissed for 97 in reply to Yeadon’s.255-5.
