Bobby Fielden with 48 in very few balls set the tone as the two most successful batters this season came to the party Lewis Hopkinson scored 60 to bring his runs total for the season to 816 only to be pipped by Joe Ousey who smashed 93 to conclude his best every season with 820 runs . Everyone turned their and the wickets were shared out as Mytholmroyd were dismissed for 144. On the bowling front Liam Dyson was again the leading wicket taker with 44 closely followed by Joel Fothergill & Scott Mallinson with 31 each & evergreen Duncan Tetley with 27 .

There was no second season syndrome for Oxenhope 1st XI as they finished the season a very creditable 6th in the premier league with the 2nd XI also finishing mid table in a tight division.
