Woodhouse Grange, from the Yorkshire Premier League North, are through to the last 16 of the ECB National Club Championship.

The Sutton on Derwent side beat Hanging Heaton from Bradford at home on Sunday by seven wickets chasing 174 in their 40-over clash.

They are now Yorkshire’s sole representative in the national phase of a competition last played in 2019 when Norfolk side Swardeston were champions.

The September final is often played at Lord’s.

For this year, the competition website says: “Date and venue to be confirmed once the County Championship fixtures for September have been confirmed and ground availability is clearer.”

Having elected to bat, opener Gary Fellows top-scored with 41 for Hanging Heaton, though opener Ben Kohler-Cadmore – Tom’s brother – was the first of three wickets to fall as the visitors slipped from 26-0 to 46-3.

Opening bowler Tom Young and James Finch claimed three wickets apiece for Woodhouse Grange as they limited the Bradfordians to 173-8.

A respectable target, but nothing near daunting for a YPL North side who have won six of their 11 league games this year and sit third behind the in-form Yorkshire Academy and leaders Castleford.

Grange’s response was built upon opener Chris Wood’s measured 61 off 102 balls.

He shared half-century partnerships for the first wicket with Harry Gamble and for the third with wicketkeeper Jarryd Basson, who wrapped up the win with an unbeaten 47 off 55.

Woodhouse Grange now play away in the last 16 against North East Premier League side South Northumberland on Sunday July 18.

Also in the last 16 are the likes of Cambridge, who beat champions Swardeston in the regional phase, and Neston, Northern and Ormskirk from across the Pennines.

Meanwhile, the National Village Cup is also down to the last 16 stage, and there are two sides from the White Rose county still in the hunt.

Those are Folkton and Flixton from the York and District Senior League and Houghton Main from the second tier of the Yorkshire Premier League South structure.

The last 16 ties will be played this Sunday.

Folkton will travel to Chester to face Alvanley, the home club of England women’s left-arm spinner Sophie Ecclestone.

Houghton Main, beaten finalists at Lord’s in 2019, will play hosts to Scottish side Meigle.

The final again is planned for the Home of Cricket at the end of the summer.
