2018 season

Cleck' lost the opening game of the season at New Farnley in unfortunate circumstances. Having made a score of 229-8 with John Wood and Nick Lindley scoring 71 runs apiece the home side were 133-3 when bad light stopped play with 16 overs left and they won on the Duckworth/Lewis rule. On his debut there was a knock of 34 and two catches, one 'World Class' for Tom Kohler-Cadmore.

The first home game of the season was against Pudsey St Lawrence. Despite knocks of 47 and 33 from Tahir and Kohler-Cadmore respectively, the total of 181 was easily surpassed by the visitors who made 185-4 with one bowler for Cleck' showing some kind of form as Andrew Deegan took 4-53.

Cleck's first League win of the season came at Methley on Sat' May 12th in stunning fashion with tons for Nick Lindley and Tayyab Tahir who shared a stand of 142 to give Mally Nicholson's lads a six wickets win. The hosts made 270-9 and with 8.5 overs left Cleck' brushed that aside making 272-4 with Nick 112 not out and Tayyab scoring 103. A week later there was a hugely disappointing home loss to Bradford & Bingley as the visitors replied to Cleck's 250-9 by making 252-5 despite being at two and over for two thirds of the match. Kyme Tahirkheli notched an impressive 142 not out to seal an unlikely victory. Tayyab was in great form for Cleck' with his second ton in a week ending on 126.

The last Saturday in May saw another disappointing defeat this time at Lightcliffe by seven wickets as Cleck' were dismissed for 120 and the home side knocked the runs off finishing 122-3. But just two days later on Bank Holiday Monday there was an excellent and much needed win at home to Scholes with Johnny Whiteoak taking 4-51 and three wickets for Josh Thurwell as the visitors were all out for 162 and in response largely thanks to Tayyab Tahir's 84 runs, Cleck won by five wickets with a total of 166-5.

On Saturday June 2nd it was the keenly awaited local derby against Woodlands and in warm, overcast conditions Josh Thurwell with 6-23 exploited the visitors brittle batting alongside Nick Walker who took 3-39 as Tim Jackson's outfit were dismissed for 68. Cleck' replied with 70-5 to win by five wickets but not without a few scares and top scorer was Tayyab with 20 whilst Tom-Kohler Cadmore made just 16 but the old guard of Andy Gorrod, who was 13 not out and Mally Nicholson saw Cleck' home. Cleck' lost at bottom Club East Bierley one week later being all out for 84 in reply to the hosts 133 all out. Josh Thurwell once again did well with 5-38 and Nick Walker scored 29 not out and took four wickets but they were the only redeeming features in a poor display. Alex Midgley and Ethan Lee made their First Team debuts but neither teenager was at fault for the loss as they were not assisted by their more experienced team mates.

A thrilling home win against Townville ensued a week later - but on Saturday June 23rd there was a heavy defeat at Farsley. The last Saturday in June saw Cleck' lose narrowly at home to Hanging Heaton who made 268-7 and in reply the Moorenders were all out for 246 with a 100 runs for Tayyab his third ton of the season. It was a spirited and much improved performance on recent weeks.

Saturday July 7th witnessed an emphatic and deserved 56 runs win for Cleck' against League Leaders New Farnley who were bowled out for 163 chasing Cleck's 219 with Tayyab Tahir scoring 96 runs and Nick Walker capturing 5-42 against his former side. One week later Pudsey St Lawrence were put to the sword losing to the Moorenders by 81 runs. The hosts were all out for 193 in reply to Cleck's 274-6 and Nick Walker was in fine form with the bat and scored 98 not out from 68 balls whilst he took 4-51 in an overall superb team performance.

Saturday July 21st saw Cleck' secure a third consecutive win beating Methley at home by 90 runs and it was a superb performance. Cleck's 272-8 included Toby Thorpe's best knock of the season with 83 runs and John Wood hit a brisk 59 runs. The visitors were dismissed for 182 and again Nick Walker was on form taking five wickets. Tom Kohler-Cadmore took four catches one of which was a real stunner and the fielding overall was excelllent.

One week later in a rain affected game Cleck' lost at Bradford & Bingley having bowled the home team all out for 109 and in reply 78-9 when the rain fell albeit chasing 114 because of Duckworth Lewis!  Nick Walker captured five wickets and John Wood bowled superbly and econmically taking 2-24 off 12. The first game of August against Lightcliffe was a potential banana skin but Cleck' eased their way to a 102 runs win. Woody notched 43 runs, Nick Walker was again in form scoring 67 and the overseas Tayyab scored a 50 in the hosts total of 254-8. Deegs claimed 5-28 as Lightcliffe were dismissed for 152.

On August 11th, Cleck' visited Scholes who were depleted and down to ten men and with just three first team players. Josh took 5-36 as the hosts were bowled out for 104 and in reply Cleck' scored 105-2 with Andrew Deegan opening the batting and scoring 35 not out. Cleck' defeated East Bierley on August 25th with Tom Kohler-Cadmore notching 127 runs that included seven 6's and 18 4's. Toby Thorpe hit a patient 54 runs in the five wickets win with the Moorenders scoring 217-5 in reply to the visitors 214 all out.

Saturday September 1st saw Cleck' defeated by five wickets at Townville in the penultimate game of the season. All out for 103 the hosts made 107-5 with Josh Thurwell taking 5-42 in a side that missed their stars Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Nick Walker.
