Scarborough, Whitby and Bridlington's cricketers all saw their matches abandoned yesterday due to rain, but Flixton and Folkton did complete a victory.

The villagers enjoyed a four-wicket win at home to Sheriff Hutton Bridge Seconds in the York Senior League Premier Division. Connor Stephenson and Harry Walmsley took three wickets each as the visitors were skittled for 162. In reply, Flixton were reduced to just 28-4, before Will Norman's half century helped them home by four wickets., with more than ten overs to spare.

In Yorkshire Premier League North, Scarborough secured a winning draw as they posted 248/4 in 50 overs. Sam Drury's third century of the season anchored the innings, alongside Ben Elvidge, who struck 68- the pair putting on 115 for the third wicket. Jack Holt and Matthew Pillans took two wickets apiece, leaving Dunnington 148/5, at North Marine Road, when the rains came. 


Division Two pacesetters Bridlington saw their clash abandoned too as hosts Osbaldwick limped to 154/8 from their 45 overs. Simon Leeson picked up three wickets and Brid looked well set in response as they sat 115/4 with 15 overs remaining. However the clash was washed out with opener Luke Dixon left 42 not out.

Meanwhile Whitby were 84/3 in response to Darlington RA's 211/8 before a match-ending downpour at the Turnbull Ground. Ricky Hall took 4/26 as skipper Will Donald chose to field in damp conditions. The hosts then struggled to 16/2 in reply, but steadied to 84 before Joe Padmore was dismissed and Theo Clarke had barely made it to the crease before the clash was abandoned with Joe Husband unbeaten on 37.
