HUNTERS York & District Senior League premier title-contenders York II saw their lead at the top cut to 19 points by visitors Folkton & Flixton who moved above Dunnington into second place.

Matt Hodsdon (3-47) was the pick of the hosts' attack, and his effort was matched by Harry Walmsley (3-51) when the hosts batted.

Skipper Nick Kay top scored for the league leaders with 59 but, despite solid innings by both Alex Collins (30) and Toby Giddings (33), they were unable to get close to their target, eventually finishing on 210-6.

The other two of the division’s top were involved in a terrific battle at Pryers Cricket Ground, with visitors Studley Royal winning by a single run when Dunnington were bowled out of the final ball of the match.

Dave Brent (4-36) looked to have helped restrict the visitors to a manageable total of 175-9, which included a half-century from James Clarkson (55) and 42 from Rob Nicholson.

Harrison Mussell (33) and Mark Clarkson (32) both got starts for the hosts but three wickets each from Matthew Coad (3-23) and William Wray (3-41) helped secure a memorable victory for their side.

It took Malton & Old Malton fewer than 18 overs to chase down the target set by local rivals Pickering, who are still searching for a first victory following this latest nine-wicket defeat.

There were over 500 runs scored at Norwood Park in the match between local rivals Beverley Town and Driffield Town, and of those, 161 came from the bat of Luke Ramsey.

There was little sign of things to come when the visitors lost their opening two wickets with only three runs on the board, but a third-wicket stand of 207 between Ramsey and Jon Vodden (80) rescued the innings in spectacular fashion. Connor Bowden took three of the five wickets to fall at a cost of 71 as the visitors closed on 276-5.
