Whitby CC 2nds slip to Stockton 2nds loss, Whitby CC 1sts win at Seaton
Adam Beaumont’s unbeaten 100, which he reached from the last ball of the visitors’ innings, proved to be the difference between the two teams, as Stockton reached 222-5.
James Fawcett took 3-67 for the hosts, Michael Thompson bagging 1-24 from 10 overs and Jack Cairns claiming the other wicket to fall.
The hosts’ reply never really got going as only lower-order runs from Cairns (31) and Evan Morris (26no) took Whitby into triple figures, finally being dismissed for 118.
The 2nds will look to bounce back at Norton 2nds this Saturday.
Aussie Lloyd (4-46) claimed the top four batters to leave the hosts on 48-4, but Ashley Turnbull’s 82no helped Seaton fight back to post 201-8.
Whitby also struggled early in their reply on 21-3, but an unbeaten fourth-wicket stand of 114 between Lloyd and Buck sealed the win. Lloyd smacked a superb 89no to cap a brilliant all-round day, while stalwart Buck was undefeated on 60.
The 1sts are at home to Norton this Saturday.
