HOLDERS York will vie with Woodhouse Grange, Acomb and Harrogate for this year's Hunters T20 Blast trophy.

The quartet came through their respective groups on Sunday to reach finals day at Scarborough's North Marine Road on Sunday, July 1.

York will meet neighbours Acomb in the semi-finals with Grange facing Harrogate.

York overcame Yorkshire Premier League North title rivals Sheriff Hutton Bridge and Castleford in their group on home turf at Clifton Park.

Their opening match against SHB proved to be toughest.

A half-century from Mark Fisher (54) threatened to upset the hosts who had earlier scored 150-8. Charlie Elliot (29) was the only York batsman to reach 20, and he was one of three wickets taken by Isaac Gianini (3-28).

But Guy Darwin (4-22) took wickets at either end of SHB's innings, including the crucial one of opener Fisher, who was ninth out, the home side going on to win by 19 runs.

Gianini (3-36) was again in the wickets when Sheriff met Castleford but Edward Cole (35), Liam Hyde (31) and David Wainwright (36) made useful contributions as Cas still reached 163-8.

Conner Campbell struck a defiant half-century in reply but struggled to find support as Bridge lost by 39 runs.

The deciding final game between York and Cas proved to be a one-sided anti-climax but was notable for two excellent individual performances.

Duncan Snell (103) struck a century as York scored 206-8, and leg-spinner Tom Spearman took 5-30 including the wicket of Cas skipper and top-scorer David Wainwright, who made 35 of his side’s total of 116.

Woodhouse Grange booked their place with victories over Clifton Alliance and Sessay at Sandhill Lane.

The hosts' first match against Alliance was a low-scoring affair.

Liam Green (4-16) limited Grange to 142-9, but Alliance could only reply with 112-9, skipper Scott Hopkinson (64) making more than half that total as Richard Walton took 3-32.

The batting highlight of the day saw Jacob Spencer score a competition record 113 not out as Sessay reached 179-5 against the Clifton side.

Kevin Bradley replied with 47 but Alliance came up 33 runs short of the target.

Sessay’s victory meant everything rested on the final game. They were in with a chance of reaching finals day at the first attempt when Simon Mason (80) and Jack Spencer (45) saw them post 205-7, James Finch taking 3-47.

But Woodhouse made a blistering start to their reply, with Tom Young scoring 80 from only 35 balls, and there was no let-up as Richard Walton (54no) saw them home with nine balls to spare.

At Low Catton Road, Acomb came out on top by net run-rate after all three teams had one win and one defeat.

Acomb lost the opening game to hosts Stamford Bridge after an unbroken stand worth 119 between Ryan McKendry (73no) and Andrew Healey (44no) rescued the home side from 32-4. Joe Dale (3-13) had earlier caused problems.

Chasing 151-4, the visitors made a solid start through Matthew Dale (38) and Stuart Boyle (32) but the lower order could not keep up with the required rate, resulting in defeat by 12 runs.

Acomb bounced back by hammering Scarborough by 74 runs.

Dale (71) and Richard Love (42) led the resurgence and, despite three wickets from David Snowball (3-18), their side reached 189-8.

Opener Linden Grey (30) top-scored for Scarborough but they were undone by Oliver Collins, who picked up 4-18 at the back end of the innings.

Victory in the final game for Stamford Bridge would have seen the hosts progress but Scarborough had other ideas and a solid start again from Grey (35) was built on by James Pick (50) and Sam Drury (53no).

Matt Beckett took three wickets as the home side were left chasing 168 for victory.

Jonathan Anderson (2-18) struck a couple of early blows in the reply and, although McKendry (43) and Chris Grey (27) looked to have got the innings back on track, both fell to David Snowball (2-19) and the rest of the line-up had too much to do, eventually finishing 37 runs short.

The withdrawal from the competition of Yorkshire Academy meant the game between Harrogate and Driffield Town in the group at St George’s Road was a straight knock-out tie.

In a one-sided affair, Tom Geeson-Brown (5-30) became the first bowler to take five wickets in an innings as Driffield were dismissed for 133. George Ross (53no) and Josh Atkinson (68) then established a new first-wicket partnership record of 123 to set up Gate's victory with more than three overs to spare.
