Two Wins Two Losses for Yorkshire Coast Cricketers

Whitby, Scarborough, Bridlington and Folkton & Flixton were in cricket action on Saturday, with mixed results for our local sides.

Scarborough had an emphatic victory as they continued their encouraging start to the 2022 season.

Piet Rinke's men reduced visitors Castleford to 2/1 and 26 for 3, before eventually skittling the West Yorkshire outfit for 162.

Rinke himself took 2 for 7, Dan Robson picked 2/25 and Ben Elvidge continued his impressive start with the ball, chipping in with 3/27.

In reply, Boro lost Duncan Brown for a quickfire 24, but there was no stopping Oliver Stephenson (65 not out) and Breidyn Schaper (69 not out) who eased the hosts home, at North Marine Road, by nine wickets.

Scarborough are now fourth in the YPN Premier Division.

In YPN Championship, Folkton & Flixton picked up an important win, at Cottingham.

The home side batted first but despite a series of starts, no-one could quite get going as they slipped from 110 for 3 to 121/6. They were eventually dismissed for 173 after batting all 50 overs. Harry Walmsley cleaned up the tail with 5/40- Max Harland took 2/26.

Skipper Tom Norman anchored the Folkton & Flixton reply with 79, steady contributions down the order saw the visitors home by six wickets.

Folkton & Flixton battle Forge Valley in the Village Cup on Sunday.

In the same division, Bridlington found Easingwold too hot to handle, despite restricting them to 196/9 from their 50 overs. Ricky Robinson took 4 for 45 from his 12 overs.

Brid's reply was a disaster with the top four all making ducks. They were 3 for 3 before Russell Robinson's destructive 51, but they were bowled out for 107 in the 32nd over, losing by 89 runs.

Bridlington were due to take on Studley Royal in the Hunters Cup, on Sunday, but Royal conceded so Brid automatically go through to the next round.

Whitby's woes continue in North Yorkshire South Durham Division One, though it was a much closer clash with Seaton Carew, at the Turnbull Ground, than in recent weeks.

Batting first, Kai Morris' Whitby were bowled out for 157 in the 42nd over. They had stuttered to 24/3 then recovered with Morris making 63 from 80 balls to shape the innings. However the hosts collapsed again from 129/4 to 140/8. 

Because they were skittled early, Whitby had more overs to bowl and Carew needed them in reply. Their opener carried his bat, but the away side required an unbroken 33-run 8th wicket partnership to take them to victory, by three wickets, in the 55th over. Tom Steyert took 3/48 and Ricky Hall 2/12.
