FOUR-TIME finalists Woodhouse Grange cruised into round two of cricket's Davidstow National Village Cup.

The Sutton-on-Derwent-based club, who lifted the trophy at Lord's in 1995 and 2007, trounced hosts Fairburn by 146 runs in round one of the North Yorkshire (South) group.

Woodhouse batted first and totalled 193-8 from their 40 overs, with Andrew Bilton leading the way with a knock of 77 that included eight fours and four sixes.

Craig Piggott was the pick of the home side's bowling, taking 4-46.

Fairburn were blasted out for only 47 in 24.2 overs, with David Suddaby claiming 4-17 and skipper Steve Burdett 3-5.

Grange, the Hunters York & District Senior League's defending premier division champions, will travel to Spofforth in round two of the Village Cup on May 11.

That date will see 2005 winners Sheriff Hutton Bridge enter the competition with a home tie against Heslerton. The North Yorkshire rivals received a bye in round one.

The final of the competition will be played at Lord’s on Sunday, September 7.
