Flixton 2nds surged to the top of the A division after a convincing nine-wicket victory over Brompton.

With Flamborough 2nds’ game at Wold Newton being washed out, rivals Flixton took full advantage to bag pole position.

Karl Theobold, 43, was the only Brompton batsman to challenge the home team’s bowling attack, for whom Pete Hill claimed 4-44 and James Clark 3-9 from his three overs to end their innings on 140.

This was a total that proved well within reach of the home team’s openers Darren Ellis, who remained unbeaten on 65, and Geoff Hill, who was the only wicket to fall LBW to Ashley Mudd for 44, the pair putting on 118.
