Sewerby are still looking for their first league win of the season and have slipped to the foot of the York Senior League Division One table.

Flixton romped to a swift seven-wicket on the clifftop, Rich Malthouse hammering an unbeaten 71 for the visitors.

Harry Walmsley’s 4-18 helped skittle the hosts for 157 runs in 38.5 overs, the top-scorers for Sewerby being Steve Janney (35) and Matthew Rennoldson (35no).

Anthony Stones got Flixton off to a solid start but it was an unbroken fourth-wicket stand of 120 between Malthouse and Matthew Nesfield (49no), that guided the away side to victory in just 28.5 overs.

Sewerby have lost all four games in the league, after the opening day abandonment and host Beverley 2nds on Saturday.

They arrive in good form after an eight-wicket win at Bridlington last weekend, Jonny Vodden remaining unbeaten on 99 for the victors.

Nick Tennant’s 38 was the only innings of note for Brid as they were dismissed for 180 in 46.4 overs, James Emery and Sam Welburn capturing three wickets apiece for the away side.

Vodden may have just fallen short of making it to his century but he had the satisfaction of steering Beverley to victory, along with Harry Gamble (61).

Liam Cousins shone with bat and ball as Grindale triumphed by seven wickets at home to Sherburn in Beckett League Division One.

Cousins took 4-35 as Sherburn were dismissed for 94 in 31.2 overs, Greg Cousins taking 3-21 while Jamie Thomson hit 34 for the visitors.

Grindale has few problems after tea, registering a seven-wicket win with Andy Smith (30) and Cousins’ 29 not out seeing them home.

Sam Moore’s unbeaten 70 helped Wold Newton to a five-wicket home success against Cloughton.

Gwaine Hogg, 57, also played his part in the hosts’ victory chase, with Charles Gray adding 27.

Jon King was unbeaten one short of his half-century for Cloughton, while Josh Hakings and Chris Woodhouse weighed in with 41 apiece, Ricky Nock adding 26 as the visitors posted 221-8, Gray, David Stockdale and Malcolm Collins taking two wickets apiece.

Sewerby 2nds overcame Forge Valley 2nds in one of two re-arranged Sunday matches in Division Two.

Valley batted first and Shaun Topham top scored with 75 as his side posted 177-8, Craig Ward taking 4-42.

Sewerby pair Harry Gunning (74no) and Danny Connell (51no) made short work work of the total, winning by eight wickets with 4.2 overs to spare.

Scarborough 3rds beat Bridlington 2nds in the day’s other game, played at North Marine Road.

The hosts made 207-7 with Lewis Brearley contributing a fine 89.

In reply, Bridlington battled hard, with teenager Oliver Beckett top scoring with 49, but 3-19 from Morgan Grunwell help stem any flow, Bridlington finishing 27 runs short on 180-9.

In a one-sided affair in Division Four on Saturday, Sherburn 2nds secured a 121-run success against Wold Newton 2nds.

Jordan Wharton top-scored for Sherburn with 71 in their 213-6, with fine work from Phil Leckonby, 41, boosting their total, Newton limping to a meagre 92-4 in reply.
