Cawood's Karl Scott has produced one of the best performances in Costcutter York and District Senior League history.

He became the first player to take nine wickets and hit a half century in the same match.

His remarkable performance saw his side beat Civil Service by six wickets in their division five match.

Bob Graves and Gavin Ritchie each made 45 and veteran Tony Tate chipped in with 25 for Service, but Scott stole the limelight with 9-66 in 21.4 overs.

He then scored an unbeaten 69 off 38 deliveries. Cawood were 70 for three in the 34rd over when Scott came in to bat.

He soon lost Bob Paddison, who was out for 48. Scott then struck seven fours and three sixes to reduce the requirement to 17 off the final four overs.

He shared an unbroken match-winning stand of 66 with Bob Taylor, who contributed just four.

Rowntree went top of the table by beating previous leaders Sessay by five wickets.

With their resources stretched to the limit, Rowntree bowlers James Riley (5-76) and Phil Grayson (4-33) bowled unchanged to dismiss Sessay for 117 with four of their 41 overs remaining. Sessay's Giles Cressey made 42 and Richard Ormston 30.

Opener Andy Main then gave the York side a steady start with 25 before Keith Burrows produced some unorthodox shots in making a decisive 34. Sixteen-year-old Russell Burn kept the game alive with 3-39, but Rowntree won by five wickets to move four points clear.

Stamford Bridge groundsman John Dodds revelled on his own patch as he and Graham Flint shared what might well be the highest partnership recorded in a fifth division game.

After losing their first wicket at 11 the Stamford Bridge pair scored centuries in an unbroken stand of 273. Flint made 128 not out

and Dodds 122 not out as Stamford totalled 284-1.

Bolton Percy's Mark Phillips responded with an unbeaten 102 in what could be the first instance of three centuries being scored in the same match.

Stamford Bridge junior bowler Dean Chaplin took 4-86, but Philips' effort ensured Bolton Percy a draw at 170-6.

Dringhouses dropped to fifth place when they failed to match Hovingham's 165-6 and had to settle for a draw at 155-6.

A maiden league century by Stillington's Dave Herbert enabled his side to move into second place after gaining by far the better of a draw with bottom placed Thorp Arch and Boston Spa.

Herbert figured in a thirrd wicket stand of 194 with Daley Wharton (79) moving to 110 not out before Stillington declared at 232-6 in only 35 overs. Thorp's Andy Heaps took 4-25.

The Boston side survived for 55 overs without too much difficulty.

The league have banned Thorp Arch's Darren Kirman for six weeks and fined him £25 for foul and abusive language at a club umpire. The player's club had imposed their own four weeks ban for the transgression which was admitted by the player.

The League's suspension includes this penalty.
