2:45pm Wednesday 12th September 2012 in Sport
PICKERING moved above Bridlington, whom they beat by 14 runs at Duke’s Park, in the final game of the Hunters York and District Senior Cricket Leage division one season.
Runs from Dave Greenlay (31), Simon King (46) and Tom Sigsworth (34) helped the Pikes to 201-8. The experienced head of Greenlay earned him 4-76 as Bridlington were dismissed for 187 in 45.3 overs.
There were runs in abundance at Folkton & Flixton where the batting-friendly track produced a total of 572 runs for the loss of 14 wickets.
In a drawn game, the advantage was firmly with Flixton who hit 301-8 in advance of Bolton Percy’s reply of 271-6. There was a century maker in each camp with Neil Elvidge making 126 for the hosts and Jake Green 109 for Bolton Percy.
Supporting Elvidge with the bat were Stuart Stocks with an unbeaten 76 and Lee Elvidge who made 27no. In Percy’s spirited response, Joe Whit hit 32 and Tom Atkinson made 66 whilst Scott Cooper took 3-48 for F&F.
Civil Service, already promoted from division five, ended their campaign with a 150-run win over Stamford Bridge. Service’s massive 251-4 was the result of third wicket partnership of 221 between Will Phelps who made 102 and Graham Sherlock who was unbeaten with 122. Their efforts enabled Service to declare after 38 overs. Neil Claxton’s 4-13 then downed the Bridge for 101.
The division’s other Bridge had a more satisfactory conclusion to the season when Steven Crowder’s unbeaten 67 enabled Sheriff Hutton Bridge to move into fifth place with an eight-wicket win at Londesbrough Park.
