Bridlington and Globe met for the second time in two nights in the Evening League Division One Cup final.

Globe decided to bat and Jack Ibbotson and Sam Edmundson started confidently until ibbotson holed out to Casey Rudd’s smart catch off Ben Traves.

Edmundson remained solid but wickets tumbled at the other end and when the opener did depart for 32, only Phil Dench with a stubborn 26 cold make double figures as Globe ended on 107.

Rudd took an impressve 5-17 off five overs.

Bridlington’s batsmen never looked in any trouble as Rudd and Rich Lount took the score past 50.

Lount was caught for a hard-hit 32 but Steve Janney and Rudd saw Bridlington over the line with almost eight overs to spare.

This is the second time in three years Bridlington have won this cup and they aim for a double on Friday when they meet Bewholme and Atwick in the Hospital Cup final at Dukes Park.

In the league match the previous evening, Bridlington had secured another comfortable win over Globe.

All the Bridlington batsmen chipped in, as Nick Tennant top scored with 43 and Rudd, Janney and Rich Lount all made 42.

All of the Globe bowlers suffered some rough treatement as Bridlington amassed 204/2 off their 20 overs.

Ibbotson and Edmundson put together a good second wicket partnership for Globe, but once the teenager was out for 34, Edmundson again struggled for support from the other end.

The scoring rate dramatically as Frankie Reffold grabbed three wickets and Rudd two.

Edmundson had the consolation of remaining unbeaten against his Saturday team mate, making 58 not out but it was not enough as Bridlington coasted home by 64 runs.
