A DOUBLE celebration is on the cards at Dunnington as, less than a week on from winning the Hunters Cup, the club secured promotion to the Hunters Yorkshire League North Premier League with a five-wicket victory over Whitkirk.

Victory tomorrow against Malton & Old Malton could see them clinch the Hunters York & District Senior League title. Moin Ashraf took 5-47 and, in the process, passed 50 wickets for the season as the visitors were restricted to 170-6, of which Sean Pickles made 73.

Adam Sutcliffe led off the hosts' reply with 70 and, despite wickets from Mark Murphy (3-23), they made it nine wins from the last 10 with more than a dozen overs to spare.

An unbeaten century from skipper Nick Kay (127no) set York on their way to a convincing victory over Pickering at Clifton Park.

The home side's total of 245-7 included 41 from Jonnie Eleanor, while Kieran Edmond was the pick of the bowlers, taking 4-86.

The visitors, who won the reverse fixture, were undone on this occasion by Matthew Hodsdon (5-38) and Chris Burn (3-26), making only 110 in reply, with Kieran Bowes the top scorer with 30.

The result leaves Kay's side poised to clinch the runners-up spot but with them ineligible for promotion, the door remains open for those immediately below.

Beverley Town's seven-wicket demolition of Bolton Percy leaves them third, with a significant gap to the chasing pack.

The visitors struggled as Town's opening bowlers Matthew Mudd (3-29) and Keiron Thompson (3-35) each sent down 15 overs, and there was no let up when the pair were replaced by Jamie Roe (2-16) and Bradley Graham (2-7), their combined efforts resulted in a target of just 88, which the home side reached with three wickets down, Olly Grantham finishing unbeaten on 32.

Fourth-placed Studley Royal ended a three-match losing streak with victory at Malton & Old Malton by 110 runs.

The visitors reached 222-9, with Rob Nicholson (70) heading a trio of notable performances which also included Matthew Coad (40) and Dan Craven (39).

Michael Linsley (3-63) and Harrison Wood (3-60) each took wickets for the visitors, but both were outshone by Craven, whose 6-29 for the hosts helped bowl out the opposition for 112, Jim Grange backing up the all-rounder's effort with 3-15.

Driffield Town won for only the second time this season and, while a 73-run victory over Easingwold was not sufficient to lift them off the foot of the table, it kept alive their faint survival hopes for a least a couple more days.

The result came primarily on the back of a couple of excellent individual performances.

Jack Riley's half-century came as the visitors battled to reach 166, and Jamie Greavson proved to be almost unplayable, finishing with 7-19 as the home side were bowled out for 93.

Hull & Zingari's two victories over Folkton & Flixton this year may not prove to be of any great significance for either side, but for Jack Storey they may live long in the memory as he completed the double of centuries both home and away against the same opposition in a season.

He led the way as, despite wickets from Harry Walmsley (4-46), the hosts reached 224.

The result was seldom in doubt as Matthew Bunn (5-14) and Callum Hellwig (3-12) combined to run through the visitors' line-up, dismissing them for just 96.
