This season’s Beckett League premier division programme included some thrilling matches again on Saturday, Staxton edging to a four-wicket win at home to Cayton, Flixton 2nds winning by 21 runs at Forge Valley and Heslerton triumphing by two wickets at Kirkbymoorside.

When Valley dismissed Flixton 2nds for 172 they must have felt confident of returning to winning ways, but they fell short on 151 all out.

Anthony Stones’ 68 proved crucial for visitors Heslerton as they made hard work of passing Kirkbymoorside’s 132-8, also losing eight wickets in a game dominated by the bowlers.

Nick Gibson’s 82, allied to 25no from Chris Dove, made sure of the win for Staxton at home to Cayton in another low-scoring affair, the visitors having posted 139-8.

The standout batting performance of the weekend was a superb 129 from Forge Valley 2nds batsman Andy Toal in their 91-run win at Bridlington 2nds in division B.
