Beverley 2nds asked the home team to bat first and the decision paid off immediately when they picked up a wicket in the second over.

Simon Leeson joined Casey Rudd and these two put the Beverley bowlers to the sword adding 115 for the second wicket in less than 20 overs.

Leeson fell for a well-made 62 and at the drinks break Bridlington were 123/2 and looking to pile on the runs.

Rudd continued after the break adding to his tally. He had reached 85 when he was caught and bowled by Pete Parnaby who bowled well in the middle of the innings and had figures of 4/26 from his alloted 12 overs.

Shaun Tate (13), Andrew Leeson (21) and Ian Shipley (18no) added good runs as the Brid total finished on 241/8 from their 48 overs.

With a decent total to defend Brid were able to attack the Beverley batsmen.

Sam Edmundson and Tom McMeeken continued their good form from the previous week and ran through the top order reducing Beverley to 32/6. They were well supported with some good catching.

Edmundson with 3-25 and McMeeken with 3-34 both bowled their full 12 over allocations off the reel.

Rudd and Will Hall replaced the opening pair and picked up three wickets to leave Beverley 92/9.

The final wicket pair batted stubbornly against some testing bowling. They held out until the 45th over when Steve Janney had the final man stumped by Shipley.

This good performance by Brid brought their third consecutive win.
