STAMFORD Bridge sit proudly atop of the Hunters ECB Yorkshire Premier League North table thanks to a seventh straight win.

The latest victory, over former leaders York, sees a change in leadership for the first time since the end of May.

Yorkshire Academy also moved up the table after beating Harrogate but just ten points separate the top four, while at Sandhill Lane Woodhouse Grange ran riot against Easingwold.

A stand of 94 between Mark Tennant (41) and Will Rhodes, who finished unbeaten on 88, set up a comfortable six-wicket victory for Stamford Bridge.

That came after Duncan Snell had made 74 in the visitors’ total of 175-7, with Donovan Sinclair taking 3-27.

Yorkshire Academy are up to second as they beat title rivals Harrogate at Weetwood by 36 runs.

Harry Brook made 62 and skipper Jordan Thompson 44 as the home side reached 222-9, Thompson’s opposite number George Ross taking 5-59.

James Logan responded with 4-53 and there were also three wickets for Eddie Barnes (3-32) as the visitors were bowled out for 186, Harry Stothard top scoring with 32.

Woodhouse Grange re-wrote the record books in their victory over Easingwold.

Their total of 381-7, which is the highest scored in competition history, included a new record partnership for any wicket as Andrew Bilton (125) and Tom Young (112) put on an opening stand of 217. The innings also including half-centuries from both Christopher Bilton (50) and Nathan Saltmer (58).

There were three wickets each for Alex Burton (3-35) and Steve Burdett (3-15) as Easingwold were then bowled out for 133, Tom Wilson top scoring with 35. The winning margin of 248 also setting a new mark.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore made his second century in just five matches since joining Driffield Town, the latest coming in a 71 runs victory at home to Hull.

Despite three wickets each from Chris Grey (3-34) and Dave Barrick (3-60), the home side still reached 259, with further contributions from Tom’s brother Ben (35) and Ataq Rahim (38).

Grey (44) put on 87 for the fourth wicket with Tom Appleyard (53) in reply but Nick Hardgrave (3-49) and Jamie Greavson (3-57) made sure they were never really in the contest, eventually being bowled out for 181.

Scarborough were bowled out cheaply for the third week in a row and, just like last week, Oliver Stephenson was the top scorer – this time making 61 in a total of 134 against Sheriff Hutton Bridge. Sam Rainbird marked his return for the visitors with 4-29.

The hosts chased down their target for the loss of only three wickets, Adam Fisher (43no) and Russell Robinson (37no) seeing them over the line.

The match between Clifton Alliance and Acomb was abandoned with the home side having reached 197-9, Alliance skipper Scott Hopkinson top scored with 40 and there was four wickets for Joe Dale (4-48).

A positive result for either side would have eased their relegation worries, but the shared spoils gives both sides a 15-point advantage over second-bottom Hull.
