A SUPERB unbeaten 108 by No 3 Rob Lee, who hit 17 boundaries, laid the foundations for Adwick-on-Dearne’s 118-run Solly Sports South Yorkshire Alliance Division One win at Forgemasters.

Harworth suffered a 65-run defeat at home to Wickersley thirds. An unbeaten 83 by opener and skipper John Lazenby was the highlight of Wickersley’s 175-9. Jeff Dickinson, Mike Davies and Aaron Botterill all picked up a couple of wickets.

Harworth had little to offer in reply after openers Richard Bartle (39) and Simon Davies (16) had departed and they were all out for 110.

Denaby & Cadeby registered a 12-run Division Four win at Brookhouse seconds.

A 6-23 spell by Lee Ogley helped put the skids under Brookhouse (96) when they replied.
