Scarborough Cricket Festival’s annual dinner proved a great success with more than 100 people attending the black tie event.

The dinner featured a short play about the last day of cricket before the outbreak of the Second World War, plus speeches from former Yorkshire and England cricketer Geoff Cope and Welcome to Yorkshire’s Gary Verity.

Bill Mustoe, chairman of Scarborough Cricket Club, said: “It was a really good evening. They play made for an interesting start to the night and people enjoyed the speeches, which were interesting and humorous.

“The festival overall has been terrific. Out of three Yorkshire games we won two, but most importantly we won the four-day match which keeps us at the top of the championship.

“The festival is as popular as ever with people coming from all over the country.

“It’s about tradition and it’s about family.

“Many people regard the ground at North Marine Road as one of the best grounds in the country.”
