Scarborough were left frustrated by the damp conditions as their Yorkshire League game against Hull was abandoned.

Andy Simpson’s men looked to be on their way to victory after Hull closed on 120-9 after 30 overs.

The reply was poised on 59-2 from 15.3 overs when the umpires made their decision, giving both teams a three-point haul.

Sam Carver was Scarborough’s top bowler, as he tore out the Hull middle order with figures of 3-20.

Jack Holt, Chris Grey and Simpson all took two wickets each.

In reply, openers Simpson (14) and Harland (12) both departed, but Mark Tennant’s 10 not out and Samrat Sharma’s unbeaten 22 looked to be leading Scarborough towards the winning line before the play was ended.
