Cloughton opener Gary Pickup featured in two important partnerships, first with Phil France, 30, putting on 63 for their third wicket, and then with Ricky Nock, who remained unbeaten on 75, for the fourth wicket before being last out for 88 out of a total of 215-4.

They were on their own ground against Nawton Grange, who in turn were dismissed for 122, Neil Ward, 36, and Tim Sharples, 26no, their principle run makers as Mark Bennett took 5-39 from 14.1 overs, other notable performances from Callum Ferrie, 1-6, and Andy Clyde, 2-6.

Kirkbymoorside reduced opponents Snainton from a promising 60-1 and 84-2 to 131 all out, Jason Oakley, 40, and Steve Eyre, 31, scoring the bulk of their runs as Dan Jemison claimed 6-36 and Dave Gardner 3-20.

After tea, the Moorsiders slipped to 10-2 but there was no further success for the visitors as Jodie Robson, 80, and Graham Jemison, 31, knocked off the runs without further loss, James Wilson taking both wickets to fall for 41.

Wold Newton moved into third position, reducing Wykeham to 143-8 after 45 overs.

Craig Bateman, 43, and Ethan Pashby, 42, the principle home team scorers.

After the break, spinner Mathew Vincent, 5-40, put Wykeham in a strong position after Josh Dawson fell one short of his half-century, but with eight runs required and the final pair of Mark Holtby and Simon Addison at the crease Wold Newton hung on to gain victory by one wicket.

Bridlington 2nds’ woes continue as they are still seeking their first win after being beaten at home to Sherburn by 134 runs.

Dan Stocks, 56, Kev Metcalfe, 36, and Al Lickes, 55, took the visitors to 231-9, Alex Young claiming 4-68.
