Stamford Bridge third as Thixendale rise in Foss Evening League
8:10am Wednesday 14th August 2013 in Sport
STAMFORD Bridge missed out on second place in Foss Evening League division one after a final day defeat by runner-up rivals Londesborough Park.
Park’s chances of snatching the title from Woodhouse Grange were dashed when York conceded to Grange, confirming the Sutton-on-Derwent side’s 12th championship in 17 years.
Park won comfortably at Low Catton Road to complete the double over the Battle Axes.
Ben Lewis (56) and James Hanley (50) helped Londesborough to 144-6 and Stamford were well short of their target despite the efforts of their two Chris Smiths, one making 43 and the other 40 not out.
Thixendale won promotion straight back to division two after becoming only the second side to beat division three champions Dunnington Academy.
Thix posted 97-7 en route to an 11-run win.
