The Derwent Valley League has been hit by the resignation of Bridlington 3rds from division B.

With Sewerby 4ths and Seamer 3rds quitting that division earlier in the season it leaves just seven teams, who will now only play 12 games each.

James Ward hit 31 and Will Hall 47 as Newton closed on 191-9, Jamie Harper taking 3-67.

Harper then remained unbeaten on 54, while Michael Thompson was 58 not out and James Magson added 65 to push Kirkby over the line.

Filey 2nds edged out fellow relegation-threatened side Snainton by 26 runs.

Veteran Kev Chapman then took control though, producing figures of 4-11 to dismiss Snainton for 77.

Whitby 3rds went crazy with the bat in division A with their win by 249 runs against Sewerby 3rds.

Finlay Morris hit 118 and Josh Suckling posted an amazing 190 not out as Whitby moved to 361-3.
