SEWERBY visited bottom of the table Dringhouses and after losing the toss were invited to bat.
After a quieter start than normal both openers were out with only 32 on the board. Mike Artley found a welcome return to form and put on 101 for the next wicket with Russ Robinson before Artley was out for a well crafted 55.
Skipper Ben Dobson joined Robinson and these two took the total to 190 before Dobson was out for 32 scored from 36 balls. Robinson kept the tempo going and 15 runs from the last over enabled him to finish a fine innings on 106 not out with 11 fours and two sixes and Sewerby closed on 249 for 5.
In reply Dringhouses lost their first wicket at 17 and then lost them at regular intervals and were 92 for 8 before Sewerby relaxed slightly and allowed the last two wickets to take the score to 133 all out.
Aidy Long bowled beautifully to finish with 5 for 35 from 16 overs and the other four bowlers each had a wicket apiece.
Another resounding victory for Sewerby celebrated afterwards at a team meal in York with all 11 players together with the umpire, scorer and a staunch supporter.

SEWERBY made the long journey to take on Duncombe Park in the 1st round of the Readman Cup 20/20. Skipper Ben Dobson won the toss and elected to bowl first.
Duncombe Park received an 8 run advantage and lost their first wicket in the third over with the score at 27.
Brian Leckonby, the league’s leading run scorer was bowled by Lewis Beasley for 12 with the score at 50 and despite some sloppy fielding by Sewerby two good catches in the outfield from Matt Dandy and two from Matt Rennoldson ensured that Park finished the 20 overs on 156 for 9, Wilkie top scoring with 33. Shaun Acton took 3 for 27 from four overs
A fine opening stand of 80 between Beasley and Acton set Sewerby on the way before both were out in the 11th over with Beasley making 31 and Acton 43.
This brought together Chris Chapman and Russ Robinson and they took Sewerby to victory in the 17th over with Chapman hitting 38 not out from 24 balls and Robinson 29 not out from 14 balls.

SCALBY were the visitors to the clifftop this weekend on a day that started well and got worse in terms of the weather and the performance for the home side.
Scalby were put in to bat and by 21 overs were 85 for 7 with Rusbridge-Burns and Acton doing the damage.
Any hopes of a quick victory started to fade as not for the first time this season the Sewerby side could not force home their advantage with 24 overs to go the Scalby pair of captain Marton and Barber nudged the score along and eventually flourished as Sewerby again failed to finish a side off and let them back into the game this partnership of 117 swung the match in the visitors favour.
A failure to mix up the bowling and to bring back the openers who had been very successful, coupled with field settings which were not challenging the batsmen meant the home side grew more frustrated.
Sewerby did not also get the rub of the green as an apparent caught and bowled in the middle of the partnership was given not out.
After tea the sea fret rolled in and heavy drizzle ensured the visitors with a score of 213 for 9 were keen to stay on the field even when another good opening partnership between Briggs and Faulkner of 60 set up the foundation of a good reply.
However regular wickets by Hesp and Hugill kept the home side wet and miserable as the innings drifted to 165 for 9 with Rusbridge Burns late 23 not out securing the extra batting point.
Other results in the league meant Scalby were the big winners of the weekend with this result moving them up to third.
Sewerby stayed fourth as the league tightened up with both Brid 2nds and Flamborough losing.

SEWERBY entertained Great Habton on a very mixed Saturday afternoon in terms of weather.
Sewerby lost the toss, and were put into bat, which saw opener Coultas bowled, in the second over.
Dandy and D Clay steadied the ship and started again, putting on 50 runs for the next wicket before Dandy (24) was caught. Mellonby was the next in, and scored a quick 10, before being caught out.
Next in was M Clay who batted well and built a partnership of 60 for the next wicket with D Clay (25). Burton (11), Newby (9) and Pearson (11) all contributed at the end and got Sewerby up to a defendable score of 163.
After tea, the weather changed dramatically, light drizzle, and strong winds made it a nightmare for the Habton batsmen.
Sewerby used this to their advantage in the first over when Burton bowled opener Lumly. This was a great start for Sewerby, and wickets kept falling at regular intervals.
Habton slumped from 52 for 3, to 62 for 7. The consistent Moorehouse bowling fantastic yet again, claiming five wickets.
He was well supported by Burton who took another wicket, and M Clay, who took 4 for 18.

SEWERBY 4ths travelled up the coast to table topping Scalby 3rds on what turned out to be a miserable day due to sea fret.
Sewerby won the toss and elected to bat on a very green but true wicket. After a slow start and two early wickets Rob Searby (31) steadied the ship and Ryan Bartram hit an imperious 59 consisting of 10 fours and two sixes.
An excellent ninth wicket stand of 45 between juniors John Searby (13) and Jack Torbett (26) propelled the Sewerby total to a competitive 181 all out in the 40th over.
As the drizzle continued to fall Sewerby took to the field in difficult conditions for the bowlers. After an early run-out the Scalby batsmen consolidated and looked comfortable at 75 for 1, but some good tight bowling aided by two more run-outs swung the game in favour of Sewerby and at 149 for 9 the game seemed lost for Scalby, Simon Porter taking 4 for 67 and Matt Rusbridge-Burns 3 for 42.
With plenty of overs left the last pair for Scalby slowly ground their way towards the target, and as Sewerby’s nerves began to jangle mistakes began to creep in.
An unbelievable five dropped catches later and with Scalby only needing 10 to win off the last over it was left to ‘safe-hands’ Searby to seal a well deserved and hard-fought victory for Sewerby.
