Fisher fires a fillip as Sheriff Hutton Bridge claim a victory
2:47pm Wednesday 7th August 2013 in Sport
DRAW specialists Sheriff Hutton Bridge finally managed to turn a winning position into victory as they beat basement side Selby in the Hunters York & District Senior League.
The result, and the 30-point return, strengthened SHB’s hold on second place in the premier division, although champions Woodhouse Grange continued on their journey to the title by winning by 107 runs at Sewerby.
There were two centuries at Moor Farm where the 107 made by Selby’s Tom Collins was trumped by Sheriff Hutton Bridge captain Adam Fisher, whose unbeaten 102 steered his side to a seven-wicket win.
Collins had little batting support as his side made 186-8, with Mark Fisher claiming 3-62 and spinner Ben Harrison 3-37. The Bridge then lost three wickets for less than 40 runs before Adam Fisher and Dave Bradshaw, who followed his previous week’s century with an undefeated 72, saw the hosts to victory with a big unbroken stand.
Stamford Bridge dropped from third to fifth when an unbroken sixth-wicket stand of 136 between Ian Gilyon (59no), and Matt Mudd (75no) steered Beverley Town to a five-wicket win at Catton Road.
Stamford had posted a useful 222-6 thanks to solid knocks by Dom Rhodes (56), Dave Chaplin (42) and Paul Milner (59). Sam Crutchley then took 3-57 as Beverley slipped to 87-5 of which Faisal Abid had made 29, before Gilyon and Mudd changed the course of the game.
Pickering bolstered their battle to beat the drop in division one by superbly chasing down a target of 234-6 set by third-placed Bridlington.
Casey Rudd hit an unbeaten 121 for Brid, supported by John Major (40), but Dave Greenlay kept the target within reach by taking 5-60.
When Pickering responded, Craig Aconley made 53 and Mark Shepherd 52 before Ben Lealman saw his side to a six-wicket win with an unbeaten 74.
Folkton & Flixton beat Goole by two wickets in a good competitive game.
Oliver Ounsley (55), Ben Earl (50) and Steve Smith (47no) took visitors Goole to 210-9, Jamie Nesfield taking 4-33.
When Flixton responded, Rob Lacey made 34 and Neil Elvidge 26 while their team-mates all chipped in. Louis Moore claimed 3-48 but was unable to prevent the hosts taking the spoils at 213-8.
Malton & Old Malton kept up their promotion bid in division one with an eight-wicket win at Tadcaster Magnet, whose 111 all out proved to be non-threatening.
Phil Smith was the only Magnetian to attract attention as he made 35 with Mike Linsley taking 3-18 for Malton. Wayne Dawson then put a different light on batting as he made 61 to clinch the points.
