Heslerton were put on the back foot when Nawton Grange picked up 2 early wickets with only 8 runs on the board before a gritty 3rd wicket partnership of 132 between Paul Bowes (62) and Scott Brennan (79) swung the match back towards the home team, both players having benefited from dropped catches. As both players departed the visitors threatened to restrict Heslerton to below the 175 mark but cometh the hour, cometh the man as Sam Triffitt took control with a well struck, unbeaten 45 taking the final total to 215-7 after 45 overs, Tim Sharples picking up (4-68) for the visitors.

After the break for tea Nawton were pegged back by some impressive seam bowling from skipper Adam Spaven (4-20) and Paul Kinghorn (2-26) the latter benefiting from a fine left handed slip catch by Heslerton’s man for any occasion Malc Spaven, 4 wickets having fallen with the total on 33 and the score on 33-6, Joe Lush having scored (24) of those runs. A mini revival by Jonny Pickard (28) and Tom Garbutt (26) put on 53 for the 7th wicket until the introduction of Aussie ace Scott Brennan (3-7) from 3 overs ended the visitors reply on 106 in the 29th over.
