Ryan Gaughan was the pick of the bowlers finishing with 3-56.

Gary Hall made 73 in the visitors’ reply of 221/8, Leeson finishing with 4-62 in a thoroughly absorbing contest.

Adrian Long turned in a match winning performance for Sewerby as they won the basement battle against Osbaldwick.

The all-rounder took 3-44 and in tandem with Robin Coates (3-35) restricted the away side to 173/9, which included 40 from Jonny Rawsthorne.

Long then top scored with 33 as the home side recorded back-to-back wins with a couple of overs to spare.
