Saturday was a day to remember for Parkhead pair Jamie Carrington and Adam Burkinshaw, as the two rattled up a Yorkshire and Derbyshire League record partnership of 314 against Sheffield Centralians.

And to top it off, Carrington then starred with the ball, too - taking 5-14 as a shell-shocked Centralians were bowled out for 97.

Carrington was eventually stumped for 187, off 106 balls and including 22 fours and nine maximum sixes.

Burkinshaw played a superb supporting role with 115 runs, including 14 boundary fours and one six, as Parkhead placed one hand firmly on the Division One league trophy.

Second-placed Hollinsend Meths struggled and were sent back for 116 (M Sharma 5-23), Sheffield University Staff gaining an important win by six wickets.

In Division Two, top team Totley amassed 306-9 (N Abdul 41 G Mohammed 57 S Khan 71 U Riaz 58 S West 4-79), but bottom team Grindleford were undaunted and replied with 248-8, with young opener Ed Buchan stroking 130 not out (S Willis 42).

They are a point ahead of Hallam III, who were bowled out for 134 by Hollinsend Meths II, who got home by just a single wicket (B Hill 56 A Myers 5-27).

Shantanu Rajebhosale (62) and Suresh Chari (44) were the mainstays of the Medics innings of 163 (Paul Hunter 5-48).

But Bakewell made light work of that total, with David Hadfield (85no) and Lee Tann (45) leading the Peak District side home to an eight-wicket win.

It was equally bad news for second placed Dronfield Woodhouse as lowly visitors Parkhead II piled up a huge 326-8 (W Forsdike 79 L Braddock 4-77), and Dronfield capitulated for just 86 in reply.

Totley II recorded another win in their climb up the table. They were dismissed for 165 but restricted visitors Walkley to 145 in reply.

Stocksbridge II made a challenging 179-8 (Ross Hunter 74no) but still went down to league newcomers Telecom Sports by two wickets (Jack Reeves 4-10 Mark Wingfield 4-61).

In Division Four, there was another convincing win for table-toppers Hallam IV.

The wily Jim Ferguson (5-5) nagged away at Ridgeway until they were 63ao and then hit 30 not out as Hallam claimed a nine wicket win.

There was equal success for fellow chasers Coal Aston III. Woodford (83) and Jenkins (56no) were behind their 203-2, which proved too much for Sheffield Civil Service II, who succumbed for 132.

Just behind are TRS, who again showed their batting prowess to record 243-9.

Baslow II could only make 153-7 in reply (Kidd 58no).
