Scarborough skipper Sam Drury led by example as his team won by 76 runs against Acomb, relegating their opponents from the Yorkshire Premier League North.

Visitors Scarborough produced a solid batting performance, Ben Elvidge making 78 and Jonathan Read 41 off just only 23 balls, after opener Darren Harland had paved the way for a total of 246-5 with 63.

Stuart Boyle responded with 53 and skipper Tom Neal struck a defiant 46, but neither could inspire the rest of the line-up seven of whom failed to reach double figures as Drury took 6-31.
