Weekend Preview 6th May

The first and second XIs both face Undercliffe on Saturday. Our third XI take on Headingley Bramhope's 1st XI while the 4s have New Farnley's 3rd XI. On Sunday the 3s kick off their Pool Paper Mills cup campaign against Pudsey St Lawrence.

Saturday 6th Undercliffe 1st XI v Baildon 1st XI - Undercliffe CC @ 12:30 Match Day sponsor: Reg Nelson After a dominant win against Morley last week, our first team will be brimming with confidence and ready to take on what is usually a pretty strong side in our division. All bowlers impressed which is a good omen against Undercliffe's destructive batting line up. Kev followed up his unbeaten 52 from the weekend with more runs midweek in our evening league side. James Ford is back in the side which strengthens the batting and he will take the gloves back from Chris Reynolds.

Team: K McDermott, C Reynolds, J Reynolds, M Khan, W Kelly, J Newlove, J Ford, R Athwal, J Marron-Toop, U Zahoor, C Malik.

Baildon 2nd XI v Undercliffe 2nd XI - Jenny Lane @ 12:30 Match Day sponsor: Jake Terry The 2nd team will look to put last week's loss behind them and show a performance that does their quality justice. With Josh Capper coming back this week brimming with confidence after taking a five-for against Bowling Old Lane midweek, that will add to Simon's bowling options. Sam Holmes is also back after deputising for Fordy and should add much-needed stability in a batting order that is yet to properly fire this year. Team: S McDermott, G Barker, J Abbott, H Brook-Dobson, S Wilkinson, S Holmes, J Capper, J Terry, S Kelly, S Mather, H Hussain.

Headingley Branhope 1st XI v Baildon 3rd XI - Headingley Bramhope CC @ 13:30 James Butterfield captains the 3rd XI this weekend while Dave is working away. Leo Smalley impressed with the ball last week and Danny Bell is back after playing for the second team for the first two weekends of the season. There will be chances in the top order with Will Baker also missing this week. Josh Hannan is in some form after top scoring with an unbeaten 18 for our U18s on Wednesday.

Team: J Butterfield, S Bullock, J Hannan, P Sunil, P Hannan, T Pickles, L Smalley, D Metcalfe, S Miller, D Grimmitt, D Bell.

Baildon 4th XI v New Farnley 3rd XI - Sandal School @ 13:30 The 4s struggled against a strong Adel side last week and face New Farnley who we've beaten in recent years. A number of usual suspects are unavailable this week. Team: A Norton, Z Ahmed, M Ahmed, B Grimmitt, F McCall, T Joy, F Raper, J Grimmitt, F Ahmed, D Hodgson, TBC.

Sunday 7th Baildon 3rd XI v Pudsey St Lawrence XI - Jenny Lane @ 13:30

A tough first round tie for the third team in the Pool Paper Mills Cup. They will go into the game confident after doing well in recent years and upsetting teams in the division above.

Team: J Butterfield, S Butterfield, P Sunil, L Smalley, D Metcalfe, S Miller, D Grimmitt, L Turner, W Baker, G Illingworth, R Illingworth.
