A home team representing New Earswick president Gordon Fratson were beaten 138-92 by the touring team.

A New Earswick spokesman said: “The visitors proved too strong for the hosts, but the day was about celebrating New Earswick’s anniversary and the completion of the first phase of their improvement plans which has seen a new lighting system and air conditioning being installed, funded partly through Sport England Inspired Facilities and City of York Council grants.”

The next stage of the club’s investment plan is refurbishment of the members’ lounge. For more information phone the club on 01904 750230 or visit the website
