RELEGATED Scalby started life in division B with a win, but they were made to sweat by a young Cayton 2nds side.
Cayton made first use of the wicket and were promptly dismissed for just 94, Simon Stubbs remaining unbeaten on 39.
Jon Barton took 4-41 and Jon Crowson snipped away at the home side’s batting line-up, collecting three wickets for 20 runs.
Simon Glave made sure Scalby didn’t have it all their own way in reply though, his 4-31 had the visitors in a tricky situation, but an unbeaten 18 from all-rounder Mike Buttery saw Scalby home.
Settrington, who were also relegated from division A, also made a winning start to life in the division as they trounced Hunmanby.
Dan Townsend, 68, and Andy Monkman, 38, took them to 185 at tea, Danny Baldry taking 5-39 for Hunmanby.
Hunmanby were all out for just 77 in reply, Charlie Rounthwaite taking 4-5 and Andy Storey 3-23, Darren Bedford scoring 33.
Staxton 2nds observed a minute’s silence ahead of their home tie against Lockton in memory of Andrew ‘Mo’ Stevenson, who passed away last month.
They couldn’t produce the result they would have liked though as Lockton took the win.
Lockton made their way to 134 all out after 44.3 overs, Andy Hill, 46, and Mike Brown, 25, their main run scorers. Mark Dove took 6-40 and Kyle Outhart 2-26 to help restrict the Lockton innings.
Staxton’s reply never got going despite 24 from Dan Outhart. Lockton’s Jim Boyes taking 5-17 and Sam Farrow collecting 3-24 to bowl the home side out for just 75.
Fylingdales against Ryedale was called off due to a waterlogged pitch, while Grindale’s home pitch has been deemed unsuitable by the league and Forge Valley 2nds took the 20 points.
In division a, a quite outstanding effort from Wykeham’s Matthew Vincent couldn’t quite garner the result it deserved as promoted Snainton picked up the win.
Young off-spinner Vincent claimed an astonishing five wickets in as many balls on his way to 7-24.
Vincent took four wickets in four balls at the end of his 10th over, before claiming his fifth victim with the first ball of his 11th over.
The Wykeham man clean bowled all of his five victims as Snainton were dismissed for 160.
Steve Eyre made 60 and Jason Oakley added 48 to boost Snainton’s score, before James Wilson, 6-47, and Jonathan Maw, 3-19, cleaned up the Wykeham reply for just 105.
The other promoted side Sherburn have also made a promising start to life in a higher division as they easily saw off the challenge of Nawton Grange.
Alan Lickes, 4-11, and Craig Sanderson, 3-7, ripped through the Grange batting line-up for just 40, before Sherburn knocked-off the runs for the loss of three wickets.
Bridlington 2nds suffered a narrow defeat at the hands of Brompton.
Brompton’s Karl Theobold, 53, and Tom Pateman, 43, helped their side to 152, Alex Young, 6-66, and Peter Bowtell, 3-27, the chief wicket-takers for Brid.
Brid came close in their reply, Mike Cawkill remaining unbeaten on 31.
But Amosh George, 3-39, and Henry Whelan, 3-20, restricted the home side to 138-8 at the end of their 45 overs.
Joseph Walton was the man of the moment for Wold Newton as they managed a victory against Sewerby 2nds.
Sewerby were restricted to just 117 as Tim Lazenby, 4-36, and Richard Riley, 3-28, contributed with the ball for the visitors.
Chris Briggs, 25, and Sam Wragg, 24, were the only home batsmen to trouble the scorers.
Walton came to the fore in Newton’s reply. His 67 not out firing his side to a three-wicket success, despite the best efforts of Simon Porter, who took 3-17 from his eight over spell.
