The cricket season is now reaching crunch time in the Scarborough are, with teams in both the Beckett League and Derwent Valley League vying for titles and promotion, and also battling against the drop.

Staxton secured the Readers Scarborough Beckett League premier division title despite losing to Heslerton, while in the Derwent Valley League, Snainton 2nds were relegated from division B and long-time leaders Great Habton were promoted from the same division despite losing to Kirkbymoorside 2nds - their first loss of the campaign.

With two weekends remaining there are still many issues to be resolved, so local cricket fans should be in for a thrilling finale - weather permitting - to a season ravaged by the wet weather.
