Long (25), Harry Gunning (21) and Sam Wragg (27) all made starts in the visitors’ reply, but it was Beasley’s 80 and 39 not out from Mike Artley that took them to 224-8, 17 runs shy of their victory target.

Elsewhere in the division, Bridlington 1sts were beaten by Whitkirk, depsite an unbeaten half-century from Harry Burnhill.

Whitkirk were dismissed for 178 after being put into bat, but Brid fell well short in reply and mustered a total of just 83 despite Burnhill’s 50 not out.

Bridlington 2nds fared much better in their Beckett League Division Two clash with Ganton, and continue to lead the way at the top of the table.

Sewerby 2nds eased their fears of relegation to Division Three with a crucial five-wicket home success over fellow strugglers Scarborough 3rds.

The visitors posted a target of 164-9, Ben Rowe making 29, but Vince O’Grady’s 5-33 and 3-43 from Calvin Roche made life tough for the away side.

S MacDonald then made a knock of 72 to help Sewerby over the line, despite 3-25 from all-rounder Rowe.
