Cricket round-up

Filey took advantage of a defeat for title rivals Staxton when they bagged a comfortable eight-wicket win against Forge Valley to move clear at the head of the Beckett League Premier Division.

The Filey side made short work of the meeting, with only Sean Pinder (26) being given the chance to shine, as Callum Ferrie's 5-23 helping to end Valley's progression on 78.

A knock of 37 from Tom Fitzgerald then guided Filey over the winning line.

Staxton were left stunned by Ebberston, who stepped up to second after a three-wicket win.

Only Chris Dove made runs for Staxton with 43 in the face of good use of the ball from Cooper Barnes (4-20) and Frankie Beal (3-32).

Elliott Cooper and Ryan Hargreaves both caused Ebberston a few worrying moments with their three-wicket hauls, but scores in the 20s from Tom Brickman and Barnes saw Ebberston in.

Nawton Grange also pushed their way into the top few when they beat Mulgrave by 62 runs.

Grange tallied a very useful 239, with Charlie Allott (81), Jonny Pickard (71) and Shaun Smith (30) scoring the run, Chris Knight (4-46), Craig Thompson (3-27) and Connor Lupton (3-87) took the wickets that fell.

Chris Knight's 62 and scores in the 30s from Arron Leeman and Andrew Wood kept Mulgrave in the encounter, but a four-wicket haul from Nick Thornicroft and three from James Dunn made sure they were knocked off the right track.

Staithes came away with a 10-wicket win against Seamer in double-quick time.

Dave Graham's 30 was the only highlight in Seamer's 73, as Paul Theaker (3-28), Tom Steyert (3-29, Jeff Morrison (2-3) and Chris Morrison (2-11) tore through.

Openers Chris Morrison (51no) and Jeff Morrison (23no) then did the rest.

Scalby were sent crashing back to earth following last week's victory against leaders Filey, when they lost by eight runs against Cayton.

James Small's 48, Michael Dennis' 29 and Dave Walker's 28 carried Cayton to 191, with James Deaves' 5-25 making things challenging.

Brett Cunningham was unbeaten on 90 in the reply, but Scalby were slowed sufficiently by 2-36 from Harry Holden and 2-39 from Tom Ward.

Heslerton were seven wickets better than relegation-threatened Thornton Dale.

Dale moved to 165-7, as Andy Hill (63), Matthew Todd (40) and Adrian Turnbull (32) helped their cause, while Dan Jeminson took 4-49.

That didn't prove to be enough though, due to 68 from Paul Bowes, 38 from Ryan Wharton and an undefeated 37 from Sam Triffitt.

Settrington confirmed the Division One championship after a simple nine-wicket success over Cloughton.

Cloughton were dismissed for 63, due mainly to Ben Corner's 3-29 and then George Rounthwaite with an unbeaten 38 finished the job.

Brompton put themselves in pole position for second spot after they beat promotion rivals Ganton by three wickets.

Rob Bradley (45) and Will Bradley (24) took Ganton to 142, with four wickets from Neil Fletcher and three from Michael Thompson slowing them down.

Two wickets each for Rob Bradley and Alistair Limb kept Brompton on their toes, before 35 from Fletcher helped them seal the win.

Craig Sanderson continued his superb season with the bat for Sherburn in their win by seven wickets against Scalby 2nds.

Scalby managed 173-3, with 43 from John Barton, 38 from Tim Barton and 28 from Lee Kerr pushing them in against 4-43 from Jamie Thompson.

Sanderson then took charge with an unbeaten 76, and 51 from not out from Jack Pickard helped Sherburn wrap things up.

Flixton 2nds hauled themselves away from trouble with a win by nine runs against Wykeham.

Noman Shabir (63), Elliott Hatton (54) and Cameron Anderson (26) carried Flixton to 204-7, with Matty Vincent's 4-44 and Gareth Barnard's 2-32 causing the issues.

Barnard then added 53 with the bat, with Steve Clegg (31) and James Bryant (25) also contributing, but two wickets each from Elliott Hatton, Peter Kay and Shabir edging Flixton over the line.

Staxton 2nds conceded their game against Great Habton.
