Scarborough CC 1sts turned in a fine performance, recovering from a difficult start to register their first home win of the campaign against visitors Hull Zingari.

The hosts were asked to bat first on a North Marine Road green top and the away side’s fast bowler Nathan Johnson (3-32) produced a superb new ball spell to reduce Scarborough to 58-4, writes Simon Dobson.

The left-hand pairing of Matty Turnbull and Clarke Doughney were forced to curb their natural aggressive instincts to fight back against some excellent Zingari bowling.

Late order positivity saw the home side reach a competitive 215-9 from 50 overs.

Muhammed Ayub then set about dismantling his former club.

Gihan Koralage also chipped in with 2-17 but Johnson (25) gave some late resistance before Ayub returned to finish the job to record club best figures of 6-35 from 10.2 overs in an inspired performance with Zingari all out for 144, 71 runs adrift.

On Sunday, Scarborough produced an excellent team performance to upset the odds and win at Woodhouse Grange in Round Two of the K3 Dental Cup.

Jack Redshaw then claimed 3-31 and alongside two wickets apiece for Ayub, Doughney and Harry Walmsley, saw them dismiss the hosts for 186 with just two balls remaining.
