A single point divides the top two in the table, Beverley holding the slender advantage over Hull Zingari.

The division leaders ended the hopes of rivals Folkton & Flixton with a seven-wicket win at Norwood Park.

Will Norman top scored for the visitors making 48, and Cam Anderson chipped in with an unbeaten 19 but in reality they never recovered from being 22-3 and lost their last five wickets in the space of 19 runs, Connor Bowden taking four for 18 whilst Gregory Whyley’s 3-29 was the first part of a fine all-round performance.

He would later guide Beverley to victory with an unbeaten 41. Anthony Spence contributed 30 off only 25 balls as the home side reached their target of 130 inside 25 overs.

Connor Stephenson took 2-41 for the visitors, who could still play a part in the title races as they will head to second-placedHull Zingari this Saturday.
