Doncaster Town suffered mixed fortunes at the weekend as they won at Rotherham Town but also bowed out of the ECB National Club Championship.

Alex Gosney’s men got off the mark in the Yorkshire League by winning by 65 runs at Clifton Lane on Saturday.

However, they were unable to follow that up 24 hours later as they lost to Central Yorkshire League side Townville in the cup.

Gosney was the star of the show at Rotherham, scoring a superb 100 not out in 87 balls, including nine sixes, to guide his team to 232-9 from their allotted overs.

He then claimed 2-28 with the ball, combining with Luke Townsend (3-59) and Graeme Attenborough (2-52) to dismiss the hosts for 167.

Stuart Guy top scored on Sunday with 82 not out as Doncaster posted a competitive 206-6.

But Jonny Booth (76no) and Jack Hughes (64no) led Townville to an eight wicket win with 7.2 overs to spare.

n Conisbrough’s bid for a second straight win in the South Yorkshire League Championship at Elsecar was hampered by the weather.

Nathan Smith (65) and Nick Morley (43) top scored in the visitors’ 242-8.

Elsecar were 182-8 when bad light stopped play. Oliver Jackson claimed 4-23.

Tickhill pacemen Steve Reid and James Stuart destroyed Treeton to pave for the way for a six wicket triumph. Reid snared 6-28 and Stuart took 4-12 as Treeton were rolled over for 68.

Stuart was 26 not out as his team got home for the loss of four wickets.

n A brilliant unbeaten century from Andy Cutts helped Hatfield Town make it two wins out of two in Pontefract League Division Two.

Barnby Dun posted 209-7 thanks to 43 from Paul Dykes and 33 from Zuliman Shah.

When Town lost two early wickets in reply it looked like they would struggle to reach their target, but a big hitting 131 not out from skipper Andy Cutts, well supported by Carl Norris (41), saw Town win with four overs to spare.

Brodsworth Main have maximum points in Division Three after a four wicket win over Whitley Bridge.
