Scarborough Beckett Cricket League round-up
2:10pm Wednesday 16th May 2012 in Sport
Ebberston have yet to beat Staxton at home while in the premier division of the Readers Scarborough Beckett Cricket League – and that run continued on Saturday.
Staxton made a promising start, James Armstrong and Nick Gibson (41) putting on 52 for their first wicket. Chris Dove continued to thwart the home attack but, when he was out for 57 with the score on 141, the innings disintegrated to 203-8 at tea. Armstrong was left unbeaten on 56, Dillon Bolton having claimed 5-64.
Nevertheless, the hosts in reply collapsed to 63 all out, Mike Horsley (20) being their top-scorer as Chris Brown picked up 3-35 and ex-Ebberston player Richard Webster 3-6.
A fine second-wicket stand by Tom Irwin (59) and Joe Danby (72) helped Seamer make 213-7 at home to Flixton 2nds, Liam Lowrey claiming 4-42 for the visitors.
In reply, Alan Parvin top-scored with 23 but Flixton had no answer to Adam Morris (4-35) and Joe Danby (6-15), being skittled for 52.
Cayton eased to 150-6 at tea thanks to Jake McAleese (44no) and Harry Holden (30no) against Filey. Michael Dennis had earlier scored 27, but most of the home troubles centred on the bowling of Phil Dickens (5-71). After the break, Steve McAleese’s superb 6-20 and Paul Woodhead’s 3-46 soon had Filey in disarray with only Benjamin Briggs (30no) putting up much resistance.
Kieron Bowes (3-21) and Jamie Griffin (3-11) put Kirkbymoorside in the driving seat at Snainton in their division ‘A’ clash. Steve Eyre (30) top-scored in the hosts’ total of 90, and the Moorsiders wasted little time knocking off the arrears without loss, Jodie Robson scoring 49 and skipper Philip Charlton 42.
In a low-scoring match at Nawton Grange, the home team were all soon back in the pavilion as Cloughton’s Michael Readman (6-20) and Andy Clyde (4-19) made use of the favourable bowling conditions.
When replying, Paul Virr (41) anchored the innings as Dean Coote (3-20) and Justin Palmer (3-17) made the visitors fight for every run as victory was gained by two wickets.
Ryedale were on the wrong end of the highest total of the day as Adam Tildsley (31), Paul Marton (83) and Nigel Clapham (47) saw Scalby race to 284 all out in division ‘B’.
Alex Ibbotson claimed 5-43 and Adam Durrant, on loan from Great Habton, claimed a useful 3-75.
Replying, Rob Featherstone hit an unbeaten 55 but the Scalby bowlers were always on top, sharing the wickets to gain victory by 170 runs.
Hunmanby were restricted to 50 all out by Cayton 2nds for whom Simon Glave claimed 4-15 and Joel Boyer 3-9. Chris Crawford (5-20) picked up a hat-trick in the reply but could not stop Cayton gaining victory by four wickets.
Settrington set a total of 174-7 at Staxton II, as Arthur Divine scored 41 and Rob Ireland 40 from 47 balls, with Eddie Rounthwaite chipping in with 27. Mark Dove claimed 5-67.
The hosts were bowled out for 139 in reply, despite skipper Andy Dove’s 51 and Liam Scott’s 26, as Andy Storey took 4-24, Andy Monkman 2-34 and Jonty Rounthwaite 2-31.
All other games on Saturday were abandoned with no play.
On Sunday, Duncombe Park enjoyed a comprehensive division ‘C’ victory over visitors Hospitals, led by Pete Humpleby’s century.
Park totaled 244-7 as Michael Diamond (26) and Barry Wheldon (63) added to Humpleby’s 107. Simon Norris took 4-76 for Hospitals, who could only make 132-8 in response, led by Jeremy Wardell’s 63 not out, as Alec Medd took 4-26.
