YORK beat Stockton in the ECB National Club Championship to set up a mouthwatering third round tie against local rivals Stamford Bridge.

While Stamford progressed after opponents Brandon conceded their match, York stormed through with a 118-run victory over North East Premier League side Stockton - Duncan Snell’s second century of the weekend setting up the win.

Snell's 149 not out helped York post an impressive 277-4, the opener batting the entire 40 overs at Clifton Park and receiving support along the way from Nick James (41), Finlay Bean (37) and Matthew Bell (36).

Visiting skipper Tom Hewison (99) just missed out on a century of his own but was one of only two players in his side to make double figures as they were bowled out for 159. Jonathan Tattersall took 3-23 and there were two wickets apiece for Oliver Leedham and Daniel Woods.

Sheriff Hutton Bridge lost by 62 runs at Chester-le-Street.

A second-wicket partnership of 88 between George Harrison (53) and Andrew Smith (74) set up the home total of 227-6, Liam Simpson providing some late fireworks with 41 not out off 29 balls. Isaac Gianini finished as the pick of the visitors’ bowlers with 2-36.

A half-century from Oliver Grayson (56) and 30 from skipper Russell Robinson was not enough to inspire SHB as they lost their last five wickets for just 33 runs.

Round three matches are to be played on June 3, with the winners of the Stamford Bridge versus York tie hosting Richmondshire or Chester-le-Street in the group one final.

In group two, Woodhouse Grange needed fewer than 36 overs to complete a resounding victory over Cleethorpes at Sandhill Lane and book their place in the third round.

The visitors lost nine wickets for 19 runs as they were bowled out for just 43, 11 of which were extras. Alex Burton finished with 5-17 and Chris Suddaby 3-5 . The home side reached their meagre target inside 16 overs, Chris Bilton finishing unbeaten on 21.

There was also success for Sessay, who beat Chesterfield by five wickets.

Wicketkeeper Christopher Till had a hand in five of the visitors’ dismissals as they struggled against some accurate bowling and it needed 49 from Harry Wilmott coming in at seven to give their target some respectability before they were bowled out for 137 in the 34th over.

All six bowlers used, including skipper Mark Wilkie, picked up wickets, Liam Carver’s brace costing him just three runs.

Wilkie then made 30 at the top of the order and runs from Jacob Spencer (37) and Mark Jackson (31no) set up a fourth-round tie away at Harrogate’s first round conquerors, Doncaster Town.

Woodhouse Grange will entertain Sheffield Collegiate in round three, with the winners hosting the group one final against Doncaster or Sessay.
