Division Four Exley 48, Joe Kinsella 5-44) beat Heslerton 2nds 120-7 (Jonathan Duffill 50no, Rob Green 22, Grant Elwell 3-10) by 46 runs.

Cloughton 2nds won the first major final of the sum by winning the Scarborough Beckett Cricket League Division Four T20 Cayley Cup, sponsored by Murray Browns, duly claiming their fifth Cayley Cup triumph as they beat Heslerton 2nds by 46 runs on a sunny evening at the superb Flixton Cricket Club in front of a healthy crowd. Batting first on a typically dreamy Flixton track, Cloughton’s opening duo, Liam Salt and Sean Exley made a cautious start against some lively Marc Dring bowling. Salt began to open up and the pair set up the innings perfectly with a stand of 82 before Salt fell for a powerful 52. Exley also followed for a fine 48 as Heslerton medium pacer Joe Kinsella claimed superb figures of 5-44 to restrict the Cloughton batsmen. Some late hitting ensure a testing total of 166-6 from 20 overs was set.

In reply, Heslerton’s top order succumbed to the left arm seam of Grant Elwell, who claimed 3-10 in an excellent spell and slipped to 32-6 before Rob Green made 22 and Jonathan Duffill, who smacked a crowd pleasing unbeaten 50, shared a seventh wicket stand of 68. Some good ground fielding and a solid bowling display, with Ben Rowe and Mikey Barker particularly impressive, always kept Cloughton on top and Heslerton’s chase ended well short on 120-7.

Competition Secretary Bernard Goulding thanked Melvyn Brown, who was representing sponsors Murray Browns, for his continued dedicated support of the excellent competition and local cricket in general, Flixton Cricket Club for the use of the wondrous ground, plus umpires Graham Griffiths and Tony Graves. Goulding also paid special tribute to Heslerton scorer Mike Brodie who carried out the role for both sides and to all the supporters who attended the game. Melvyn Brown, who is also a vice president of the league gave a heartfelt speech congratulating both sides and presented his own man of the match award to Liam Salt for his half century. A second man of the match award, donated by league vice president Pete Grundy was also presented to Joe Kinsella for his first innings bowling heroics and the presentation concluded with Brown presenting the wonderful Murray Brown Cup to Cloughton skipper Salt.
