CHAMPIONS Woodhouse Grange ended Fenner's brief spell at the top of the Hunters York & District Senior Cricket League premier division with a two-wicket win over their rivals.

After losing the toss, the home side found themselves batting against the tight bowling of Andrew Horner, who took 3-11 off his allocation of 15 overs. Former Selby man Josh Jackson took 3-32.

Steven Croft top-scored with 30 in his side's 109 and then took 3-21 as Grange lost eight wickets in their pursuit. Nick Hadfield hit 30 and Tom Young 29.

Dunnington's slow start to the season continued as they were dismissed for 94 in 38 overs chasing Stamford Bridge's 213-8.

Tom Loten (30) was Dunnington’s leading scorer, while Dave Chaplin took 3-20. Bridge veteran Kevin Murphy had earlier led the way with 62 and Ollie Pimlott made 46. Josh Barrett took 4-62 for Dunnington.
