3:06pm Wednesday 4th September 2013 in Sport
MULGRAVE celebrated their Derwent Valley League Division A title success without having to lift a finger.
Their opponents, Hospitals/Rugby Club were unable to raise a team, handing Mulgrave a walkover and 20 points.
In anyc ase, Mulgrave’s nearest challengers, Great Habton, were also unable to raise a team for their game with Sewerby 3rds. As a result, Sewerby claimed 20 points and Great Habton were deducted five, leaving Habton to savour the runners-up spot.
The only game to take place in the top flight saw Muston make 167-9 courtesy of Steve Pratt (40) and Phil Marr (46) against Forge Valley 3rds, who were then bowled out for 125, with Gary Hanson taking 6-36.
In contrast, division B saw a nailbiting finish as champions Lockton and runners-up Flamborough could only be separated by two points.
Rory Lancaster (141no) was the star man for Lockton as they posted 243-4 at home to Seamer 3rds, who were then skittled out for 115 thanks largely to Sam Farrow (3-37) and Simon Boyes (3-16).
Flamborough, who were leading the table ahead of their game against Flixton 3rds, bowled their hosts out for 104, and reached their target for the loss of just one wicket but it was still not enough.
In division C, champions Filey 2nds had no game, but Snainton were able to claim second place after Muston 2nds failed to raise a team. Meanwhile, Forge Valley 4th’s veteran skipper Derek Hall, chairman of the league, retired in style as his team beat Wykeham 3rds by 14 runs.
