Henry Whelan’s nine-wicket haul failed to secure a win for relegated Cloughton at home to Staxton in the Readers Scarborough Beckett Cricket League.

Whelan took 9-88 as the visitors posted 260 all out, a total dominated by Nick Gibson’s outstanding 135 against his old team.

Paul Virr, also playing against his old team, struck 53, while Mark Bennett weighed in with 40 and Andy Clyde chipped in with 37, but fine bowling from spinner Rich Flinton (3-48) pegged them back to 150 all out.

Grindale secured the division B title thanks to a 90-run win at relegated Duncombe Park 2nds, leaving Wykeham to settle for second spot despite a swift nine-wicket win at Forge Valley 2nds.

Tom Jackson snapped up 4-64 and Andy Smith 6-12 as Park were dismissed for 112 in reply to Grindale’s 202 all out.

Liam Cousins smashed a stylish 77, with support from all-rounder Smith (44) and Zak Moore (39).

Wykeham’s win was set up by top bowling from Ian Spence (5-23) and Gareth Barnard (4-16) who teamed up to skittle Valley for 50, Conor Bateman’s 28 helping to wrap up the win.

Thornton Dale secured the division C crown thanks to a 104-run home success against Staithes 2nds.
