Ganton stayed top of the pile in Division B after the heroics of James Richardson and John Bannister helped them to victory at Cloughton.

Cloughton must have fancied their chances after 4-13 from Ben Rowe restricted Ganton to 89-5, Liam Cousins hitting 35.

Richardson scuppered the hosts’ chances as he took 5-14, which included a hat-trick, to restrict Cloughton to 75-9 despite Mark Pryce’s 33.

All three of Richardson’s victims in his hat-trick were stumped by wicketkeeper Richard Bannister. Cousins also took 3-15 to add to his efforts with the bat.

Scalby stayed hot on their heels as they inflicted Sherburn’s first defeat of the season by just two runs.

James Ledden (41) and Nick Gibson (39) led Scalby to 117-4, Jamie Thompson taking 3-44.

Dan Simpson (49no) and Ben Simpson (27) did their best to try and guide Sherburn to their target, but they fell agonisingly short on 115-3.

The bottom two sides in the division met as Wykeham B moved clear of Cayton B.

Cayton B posted 72-8, but John Hoggarth’s unbeaten 25 helped Wykeham to 74-3.

Scarborough inflicted a comprehensive seven-wicket win on Cayton.

Josh Brown (50) and Connor Davidson (34) gave Cayton a platform as they posted 128-4, but Brad Scott’s 56 and Tom Bussey’s unbeaten 38 helped Scarborough cruise to 129-2.

Gregg Chadwick hit the top score of the week as he made 73 but still ended up on the losing side in Seamer’s Division A clash against Wykeham.

Chadwick’s 73 and 36 from Adam Robertshaw helped Seamer post 156-6, Dave Pearson taking 3-28.

Darren Mills’ superb 68 led Wykeham’s reply, and boosted by 26 from Kev Thompson, the visitors made it to 160-7, despite spinner Harrison Wood’s 4-46.

Staxton stay top of the pile after beating rock-bottom Cloughton by 26 runs.

Rob Pinder (51) and Dave Morris (38) helped Staxton post 147-5, Glynn Botterill taking 3-25.

Matty Turnbull smashed 69 as Ebberston beat Filey by 11 runs.

Tom Fitzgerald’s 27 was the only innings of note in Filey’s 120-9 as they attempted to chase down Ebberston’s 131-6, Turnbull the only man to make a telling score.

Kristian Wilkinson and Dan Jeminson were the star men for Heslerton’s in their 42-run win against Flixton.

Wilkinson scored an unbeaten 40 as Heslerton posted 154-4, Paul Bowes also hitting 29, Jeminson then claimed figures of 4-26 to ensure Flixton could only reach 112-6, despite Harry Walmsley making 41.

Flixton B appear to be cruising to the Division C title as they racked up their fifth win in as many games against Wykeham C.

Only Tom Poor (31) could master the bowling of Elliot Hatton (3-16) and Cameron Anderson (3-27), as Wykeham made 77-8.

Marley Ward remained unbeaten on 41 and Joe Harris on 26 as Flixton cruised to 78-1.

Joe Bayes’ 52 not out helped ensure Ravenscar stayed just behind the leaders as they beat Ebberston B by eight wickets.

Joe Tyson made 27 as Ebberston finished on 82-7 before Bayes’ knock helped Ravenscar to 83-2.

Alex Glass was in stunning form as he shattered Staxton B with both ball and ball in Forge Valley’s 75-run victory.

Glass hit 30 as Valley made 153-9, Eric Hall also smashing 39 and Tom Fletcher-Varey 26, while Craig Hill took 3-29.

Star man Glass then claimed superb figures of 3-12 to make sure Staxton only made it to 78-9.

Scalby B and Seamer B stayed among the promotion mix-up as they both collected wins.

Seamer B stayed in third spot after their 21-run win against Snainton.
