And Mann, who had scored 119 and 67 in his previous two South Yorkshire League outings this year, was the star of the innings again with an excellent 114 including 16 fours.

He was well supported by South African Ruben Minnaar with 42 and Tommy Hyde with 35 not out.

Hyde then complemented his batting performance with 4-50 as the visitors could only muster 149 all out in response.

Warmsworth lie second in the Division One table with three wins out of three.
