Driffield Town’s Yorkshire League skipper Danny Broumpton hit form for Bewholme, Atwick and Brandesburton in their Bridlington and District Evening League first division victory.

Broumpton struck an unbeaten 50 to link up with Nick Hardgrave’s 32 not out as the villages team cruised past Bridlington’s 89 in the nine-wicket win at Dukes Park.

Elsewhere, Driffield edged out North Dalton in a thriller by just 20 runs.

Dom Warters helped Sewerby to trim the gap on second division leaders Grindale when they beat Wold Newton by seven wickets.

Warters’ 3-4 linked with Sam Wragg’s 3-13 as Newton were bowled out for 42. He then hit an unbeaten 37 of Sewerby’s succesful reply.

Driffield RUFC are third after their defeat of Globe by five wickets.

Borman took three wickets as Globe were bowled out for 82, a tally that was passed due mainly to Ullyot’s 35 not out.

Rudston had a powerful 79-run win against Wetwang. Wood’s 58 was the highlight of Rudston’s 139-7, before Wetwang dropped well short.

Driffield Academy won the battle of the top two in division three, as they beat Trinity by six wickets.

Jamie Hopper helped himself to 35 of Driffield’s tally of 102-4. Hudson then took 3-20 to slow Trinity’s progress.

North Frodingham leapt away from trouble following a win by 43 runs against basement boys Cranswick.

Matty Richardson top-scored with 43 in Frod’s 127-5, a tally that proved too much for Cranswick.

Brigham’s 44 and Woodmansey’s 29 were in vain for Middleton as they lost by eight wickets to Sewerby Albion.
