A half-century from Blackley skipper Reece Jennison was in vain as the Halifax League’s select side bowed out of the Yorkshire Inter-League Knockout competition yesterday.

Jennison made 56 at Osbaldwick CC but the next top scorer was Thornton’s Ross Soames (24 no), who ran out of partners with two and a half of the 40 overs unused.

Defending 159, Mytholmroyd’s Jack Earle struck early and Greg Soames picked up a couple of wickets as Halifax got through the home top four.

However, York’s fifth-wicket pair both hit unbeaten half-centuries to complete a comfortable win for the hosts.
