Whitby's Cricketers Pick Up Crucial First Victory

Saturday's cricket on the Yorkshire Coast saw an important first victory of the season for Whitby, with Bridlington and Folkton & Flixton also in action.

Asked to bat first, in the North Yorkshire South Durham First Division, at bottom club Blackhall, Kai Morris' Whitby raced to 144/1 thanks to Ollie Roberts' 87.

Andrew Wood added a useful 28 and there were other notable contributions down the order as Roberts dominated proceedings. The visitors finally closed on a useful 246/9 from their 50 overs.

The County Durham hosts made a bright start too- they were 82/1 before wickets started to tumble. They were eventually skittled for just 153 in only 25 overs as the experienced Ricky Hall took five wickets. It was an important 93-run victory for Whitby.   

Bridlington were also victorious, in the YPN Championship.

Home side Welton chose to bat first but fell to 54/5, in the end doing well to post 162/8 from their 50 overs. Messers Hudson and Rudd picked up three wickets each as they also dried the runs up.

Brid were wobbling themselves at 97/4, but Tennant's unbeaten 56 saw them home with nearly 20 overs and four wickets in hand.

Folkton & Flixton were also on their travels but were unable to emulate their coastal neighbours.

After choosing to bat first, the villagers collapsed to 130 all out in 34 overs.

In reply, hosts York Seconds strolled to their target, with more than 17 overs in hand, for a five-wicket win.

Scarborough CC had no game.
