A round-up of the matches from the last round of games in York Semior League Division One.

York Senior League Division One

BRIDLINGTON entertained Pickering in their last match of the season. The visitors won the toss and chose to bat first.

They got off to a bad start losing Smith for 0 in the first over before a run had been scored.

Dave Greenlay then tried to attack the bowling scoring 31 before he was well caught by Steve Janney.

Sam Edmundson then claimed his third wicket with an LBW. Casey Rudd came into the attack and removed the experienced Frank for 19 soon followed by R Boyes (16).

King (46) and Sigsworth (34) then put on 71 for the sixth wicket but Rudd picked up 3-50 and Edmundson 4-27 as Pickering reached 201 from their 48 overs.

The Bridlington reply got off to a decent start with Rudd attacking the bowling.

He lost his partner Rob Middlewood with the score on 24.

John Major joined the in-form opener and they took the score to 59 before Rudd fell for 47.

Major followed soon after for 20. The next three partnerships all failed to make an impact as the home team slipped to 116/6 from 30 overs.

The run rate was always manageable and Ewan Macnab and Janney put on 40 and were looking good until Greenlay removed Janney for 21.

He took another wicket and then R Boyes took a wicket at the other end.

The final Bridlington wicket fell with the score on 187 which was 15 short of victory.

Greenlay finished with 6-76 off 22.3 overs.

A disappointing end to the season in which Bridlington played some good cricket from the halfway point after a tough early season.

SEWERBY visited Hull Zingari for the last match of a successful season.

On losing the toss, they were asked to bat first and skipper Ben Dobson set off at his usual pace. With Luke Jennison he put on 54 for the first wicket before Jennison was out for 12.

Dobson was bowled by Bunn for 50 with 11 fours when the score was on 70.

Chris Chapman and Russ Robinson progressed the scoring before Chapman fell for 22.

Mike Artley joined Robinson and they pushed on to 165 before Artley departed for a fine 40.

A familiar middle order collapse and when Robinson was out for a grafting 35, Sewerby eventually ended up all out for 180.

Loose early bowling allowed Zingari to Zineari to score 39 from the first four overs with a wicket for Aidy Long.

Two more wickets for Long pegged them back to 64/3 and when Lewis Beasley took two wickets in his first four overs, Zingari were 82 for 5 and Sewerby had hopes of claiming a victory.

Having taken four catches out of the first five wickets, skipper Dobson came on to bowl and took a wicket with his second ball to reduce Zingari to 111/6 but despite repeated bowling changes Sewerby were unable to take away any more wickets .

Bunn with 64 not out and Page with 29 not out saw Zingari to victory with 13 overs to spare.

A disappointing end to a fine season but full credit to all the players for taking Sewerby into the premier division next year.
