Readers Scarborough Beckett Cricket League

Premier Division

After being put into bat Cayton made a solid start putting on 48 without loss in their first 20 overs until the introduction of Aussie off spinner Scott Brennan (6-36) put home team Heslerton in the driving seat, opener Rhys Crowe compiling a steady 36. The return of skipper Adam Spaven (2-17) from 9 overs brought the innings to a close on 146-9 after 45 overs..

Heslerton’s reply faltered losing 2 wickets on 36 in the 13th over. Opener Paul Bowes and Sam Thackray added 38, Bowes and Simon Oxendale a further 31 as tension mounted, the opener being the 6th wicket to fall with 9 runs required for victory after scoring 84 with 2 overs remaining. It was left to skipper Adam Spaven (8no) to hit the winning boundary with 4 balls of the match remaining for the loss of 7 wickets.

Winning the toss and bowling first, Heslerton found it hard going against the quality opening pair of James Wainwright and Freddie Schmuck.

The pair put on 46 for the first wicket before Marc Dring had Schmuck caught behind for 11. From there Heslerton started to come back into the game and Dring removed the dangerous Wainwright for 40, then T Turon for 5 to finish with 3-26 from his 12 overs. After that, Matty Webster took over. Ripping through Scalby's middle order he took 5-22, his fourth five wicket hall, with all the batsmen being bowled.

He was the main catalyst in a collapse of 8-15 for the home side, putting Heslerton well in the drivers seat.

After tea the visitors were put under pressure early as Anthony Watson was trapped lbw for just 2. But 'Dadey' lead the way with an unbeaten 42 as Heslerton came through by 6 wickets.

The 18 point win takes Heslerton 13 points clear of Cloughton II's at the top of Division four.
