NEWLY-promoted Sheriff Hutton Bridge made it back-to-back wins in Hunters York & District Senior League Division One by defeating Sewerby by five wickets.

Having been put in at Moor Farm, visitors Sewerby reached 217-9, with a half-century from Sam Wragg (58) being the highlight.

Further runs came from Chris Mann (44) and Mike Artley (31) as Tom Magee (3-35) picked up wickets for the home side.

Their reply featured 59 from Paul Oldfield, while Jack Hugill (49) only narrowly missed out on becoming the third batsman in the match to reach 50.

Connor Campbell made 32 of the eventual winning score of 218-5, with Steve Janney (3-57) picking up three of the five wickets to fall.

A Ted Donkin (102) century, alongside Andrew Anderson's 83, helped another of the division's newcomers, Pocklington posted an impressive 276-7 at home to Ripon, for whom Jack Briscombe finished with 3-53.

Despite what looked like a daunting task, the visiting batsmen fought hard to earn a share of the points, with Rob Taylor (42), Ben Crewe (38) and Mike Ainsley (60) all playing their part.

Alex Downey took 3-51 for the home side but they were unable to force the win as Ripon closed on 216-7.

Dringhouses' first victory of the campaign came at home against Hornsea in a low-scoring encounter.

Gary Wilson top-scored for the home side with 41 as they were bowled out for 141, with the only other significant contribution coming from Richard Cole (34).

Hornsea duo Mick Kenyon (4-12) and Tom Storr (4-7) combined to take eight wickets and had every reason to feel that they had put their side in with a good chance at the interval.

Ashley McKinley responded for the hosts with 4-53 as the visiting batsmen struggled to make an impact, with Mark Battye's 26 being the only innings of note in a total of 114.

Ben Kempley (94) just missed out on a century for a Harrogate side who had made the long trip to Goole Town. Cooper Smith (38) and Ashley Griffin (37no) enhanced the visitors' position as they reached 230-4, but unfortunately their efforts went unrewarded as the match was abandoned midway through the home side's innings.

The score at that point was 118-4, with Ollie Ounsley unbeaten on 39, Ben Shelton having earlier been dismissed for 37.

Elsewhere, leaders Beverley Town drew with Heworth, and Knaresborough won at home to Carlton Towers.
