Bridlington 2nds had a comfortable win over Scarborough 3rds, who included several promising youngsters in their side.

The hosts were invited to bat first on a glorious afternoon and Greg Miller and Rob Middlewood got them off to a steady start, putting on 47 before Middlewood was caught behind.

Mark Purvis introduced some much-needed aggression as he and Miller added 60 for the second wicket. Steve Lount then kept the momentum going, hitting 66 off 58 balls to secure maximum batting points.

Miller finished unbeaten on 69 as Bridlington closed on 230/3.

It was all too much for the young Scarborough team after tea, as Frankie Reffold took the first three wickets with only three runs on the board.

Peter Bowtell joined the attack and claimed two wickets to leave Scarborough on 8/5, while Ben Traves was completely out of luck at the other end, despite only conceding seven runs in his 10 overs.

Harry Burnhill and Ben Ibson were introduced and, despite a few lusty blows from number 10 Heatley, they quickly polished off the innings with Burnhill claiming 3-22 and Ibson 2-9.
