Scarborough CC's first team slipped to their first YPLN defeat of the season as they lost by four wickets to Stamford Bridge at North Marine Road.

Skipper Pat Roberts won the toss and elected to bat and he watched his side slip to 14-3 and 76-6 before a partnership of 89 between Roberts (37) and Pete Rinke (53) rescued the North Marine Road outfit to 202 all out.

William Robertson (5-32) and James Pick (3-24) were the pick of the bowlers for the visitors.

Bridge were then reduced to 59-4 as James Wainman (2-49) and a wicket apiece for Jack Holt and Rinke had given Scarborough hope.

But a knock from Fletcher Coutts (66no) and Ameya Joshi (43) saw the visitors home with four over remaining.
