Scarborough marched into the semi-finals of the Yorkshire League Cup on Sunday when they crushed Appleby Frodingham by 150 runs.

Andy Simpson’s men were in useful form with the bat and ball as their Lincolnshire hosts were swept aside.

Scarborough will now play either Casleford or Driffield in the semis at Scarborough, as their quarter-final is set to take place this weekend.

Simpson carried his bat for Scarborough over the 44 overs for a score of 87, while fellow opener Darren Harland (32) and Samrat Sharma (41) also contributed to the tally of 198-7.

Appleby’s reply was then ended with just 48 on the board, with Jack Holt taking four wickets and Chris Grey three, while youngsters Callum Ferrie and Sam Carver grabbed a wicket each at the end.
