HUNTERS York & District Senior League premier division leaders Folkton & Flixton maintained their advantage over the chasing pack as they crushed Studley Royal by 146 runs.

After the loss of an early wicket, Tom Norman (63) and Will Hutchinson (75) shared a century stand, with runs further down the order from Jake Hatton (30) and Connor Stephenson (45) seeing the visitors to 262-8.

Oliver Tomalin (3-55) was the pick of the hosts' bowlers finishing with 3-55.

Studley Royal's reply started very poorly, losing their first three wickets before a run had been scored. Rob Nicholson (56) did his best to hold the innings together as his side were bowled out for 116. Charlie Colley took 3-18 for Folkton.

Shaun Harland (116) and Ben Gill (121) shared a double century stand for Malton & Old Malton, who extended their unbeaten run to 11 games but were unable to bowl out visitors Pickering to earn a victory.

There were three wickets for Kieran Bowes (3-55) as the home side scored a mammoth 327-6 from their 50 overs.

Not to be outdone, Danny Harper replied with an unbeaten 111 for the visitors with Shaun Smith (37) and Ryan Taylor (34) also playing their part to earn a share of the points from this latest local derby. Adam Spaven (3-50) recorded the best bowling figures from either side.

Nick Kay picked up 7-37 and Tom Spearman 3-36 as York recorded back-to-back wins for the first time since the opening two games of the season.

Sheriff Hutton Bridge were the visitors to Clifton Park, where captain Daniel Cass scored a half-century in their 137 all out.

The hosts took less than 23 overs to reach the target, Spearman (39) and Iain Jarvis (40) sharing a stand of 54 before Tom Brooks secured the points with an unbeaten 34. York sit in mid-table and Bridge are perilously close to the relegation places.

Whitkirk won for the second week in a row, despite being bowled out for 175 they were able to record a comprehensive victory at Hull Zingari by 79 runs.

A second-wicket stand worth 84 between Sean Pickles (46) and Jack Wood (32) provided a large proportion of the visitors' total. Jason Hellwig (4-40), Gavin Wilkinson (3-33) and Jack Storey (3-42) shared the wickets.

Daniel Mould made 32 but the hosts never got going and when he fell to Tom Webb (6-29), the result was all but confirmed.

Joey Franklin took 7-30 as Beverley Town bowled out Goole Town for just 88 on the way to back-to-back victories, which keep their hopes of a return to Yorkshire Premier League North alive.

Sessay bounced back from last week's loss with a six-wicket win over Welton at Oval View.
