Ganton successfully defended the Scarborough Hospital Bowl as they claimed an entertaining five wicket win over Wykeham on a glorious North Marine Road evening.

Wykeham won the toss and elected to bat, a move which brought a positive start from Charlie Revis who shared an opening 84-run stand with Ezra Pashby, writes Simon Dobson.

Revis was run out for an excellent 65 and with Steve Clegg bludgeoning 33 not out, they posted 146-3 from 20 overs.

Ganton's reply started well but they slipped to 79-4 at the half-way mark.

Captain Will Bradley entered the crease and found good support from Phil Elliott.

The skipper was clean bowled for a superb 53 by Finn Holden, who recorded 2-29 but Elliott held firm and partnered by Fred Bradley (23no) finished unbeaten on 36 to steer their side to the win with 11 balls to spare.
