Ashley Lyth was the star man for Scarborough in their 66-run win over Appleby Frodingham on Saturday.

Batting first, Scarborough made their way to 144 all out, with only Andy Simpson, 40, and Darren Harland, 38, troubling the scorers.

Paul Hilton did the bulk of the damage for Frodingham with the ball, taking figures of 6-36 from 19 overs.

Defending a modest total, Scarborough ripped through the Frodingham batting line-up.

Lyth was in superb form with the cherry, taking a superb 5-16 from his 16-over spell that included nine maidens.

He was ably supported by skipper Simpson, 3-11, while Samrat Sharma and Daniel Evans also took one wicket apiece as Frodingham were all out for just 78.

The North Marine Road club’s third XI were also in action on Sunday, as they hosted Seamer 2nds for a Beckett League division c encounter.

Seamer took first knock at North Marine Road but couldn’t master the bowling of Chris Hunter, who claimed six wickets as Seamer were dismissed for 127.

Despite a shaky start in reply, Scarborough were able to ease home courtesy of a 124-run stand between Sam Hills, 40no, and Alex Renwick, 70no.
