THERE are new leaders of Hunters York & District Senior League Division One, with Sheriff Hutton Bridge taking over from Sewerby.

Bridge produced a dominant performance to beat Ripon at Moor Farm, with Nadeem Shefta taking 5-28 as the visitors were dismissed for just 89.

An unbeaten 43 from Rob Stevens then ensured that the home side made it three wins from their last four, having only been promoted to the division at the end of last season.

Sewerby were held to a draw by Heworth, who batted for 57 overs to reach 161-9, and in doing so secured a share of the points.

The home side had earlier reached 182, with Mike Artley top-scoring with 43 as Steve Lawrence finished with 4-40. Chris Mann took 3-21 during the visitors' marathon reply, which included a half-century from Sam Lingard (54).

Carlton Towers snatched an unlikely victory at Norwood Park, beating Beverley Town by just two runs to record their first win since gaining promotion.

The hosts lost their last three wickets for just seven runs at the end of a pulsating contest.

A partnership of 80 between Henry Bayston (52) and Robert Holah (32) provided more than half the visitors' total of 155.

Will Parker replied with 39 but Tom Collins (3-37) helped to seal the hosts' fate.

Knaresborough made it three wins in a row after they beat Dringhouses at Aspin Lane by five wickets.

Andy Kenyon made 41 in the visitors' total of 168-8, but a strong showing from the home side's top order secured a comfortable victory, with Dave Girling (43) one of four batsmen to pass 30.

Cameron O'Donnell top-scored with 73 and then took 3-19 for Harrogate as they ran out convincing winners at Pocklington.

Andy Hawkswell (70) was also in the runs as, despite wickets from Sam Shipley (3-54) and Alex Downey (3-48) as the visitors reached 232-9.

The result was seldom in doubt as O'Donnell and Ollie Horberry, who finished with remarkable figures of 4-2, set about dismissing the visitors, who just managed to reach three figures, with Shipley offering the only resistance with his 37.

There were 672 runs in a high-scoring draw between Goole Town and Hornsea.

Town's Ashton Nottingham top-scored with 147, and further runs came from Kevin Murphy (83) and Ollie Ounsley (53).

Their side's 350-4 must have looked daunting but the visitors came close to beating it, thanks to Paul Clappinson (67), Ashley McKinley (67) and Richard Medforth (43).
