WOODHOUSE Grange established an early lead at the top of the York & District Junior Cricket Association Hirepoint Plant & Tool Hire Under-13 championship first division table thanks to a win over Pocklington.

Batting first, they scored 110-3 with Dan Durkin (30no), Henry Cooper (29no) and James Tingle (16). Henry Sumner took 2-5. Harry Scrowston (2-5) and James Tingle (2-2) then stifled the Pocklington batting, who closed on 39-9.

Four Sheriff Hutton Bridge batsmen helped their team to post 125-5, the highest score of the day, in a 40-run win over Dunnington.

Will Schofield hit 30no as did George Stephens, while Isaac Giannini and Ed Ramsden each notched 21.

Dunnington’s 85-7 was founded on 30 not out from Charles Forde but Giannini (3-6) and Lewis Humphreys (2-6) restricted the reply.

In a low-scoring game, Acomb ‘A’ beat York ‘A’. York batted first and tidy bowling from Acomb, with James Wood taking 2-11, kept them to 61-5. Sam Backhouse made 18 and Charlie Robinson 16.

Chris Wood led the Acomb reply with 27 and Thomas Brown made 12 as they passed the York total for the loss of two wickets.

In division two, Yapham posted 108-4 at Clifton Alliance thanks to H Jones (30no), H Kay (28no) and J Cardy 24. Although Kier Brooke-Humphries made 16, the Alliance reply was always struggling against a strong Yapham attack that saw J Rushworth take 4-4, H Kay 3-7 and H Jones 2-2.

Stamford Bridge posted 74-5 - underpinned by 21 from Sam Pratt - against Heworth ‘B’ for whom the pick of the attack was Ethan Bradshaw’s 2-15. Heworth struggled against Lewis Eston (3-5) and Taylor Stanton (2-7) and fell 22 runs adrift.
