Bridlington and Sewerby teams made up mainly of young players met in a friendly in chilly conditions on Sunday.

Bridlington batted first and lost three quick wickets before senior player Steve Lount joined promising all-rounderElliott Traves and they put on a partnership of 92.

Traves retired after making a fine half-century, as did Lount, and Bridlington then faltered as they tried to force the pace.

Stubley picked up three cheap wickets as Bridlington closed on 151/7.

When Sewerby batted after tea, Frankie Reffold and Jack Ibbotson bowled accurately to keep the scoring rate down.

Reffold bowled openers Faulkner and Clay before the score had moved out of the teens.

Skipper Lewis Beasley remained solid as wickets began to fall and he retired after reaching his half-century.

Traves, Carl parkin and Tom Woodhouse all put in good spells for the hosts, with Woodhouse returning impressive figures of 3-14.

With one wicket needed for a morale-boosting win, the rain came down and the match was abandoned with Sewerby on 111/8.

A good workout for both teams, with the youngsters all giving good accounts of themselves.
