Division 2



Domination continues for Masham who now have a gap of 20 points and are one win away from a return to the top flight at the first time of asking. With the previous days downpours in mind Masham didn’t hesitate sending Bolton Abbey in to bat. Sam Stewart compiled an aggressive 32 at the top of the order, but seamers Ellis 3-31 and Smart 3-31 soon exposed the tail for which Aussie Rees was grateful finishing with 3-10. Masham chasing 132 for victory got off to a great start with the formidable Rees scoring a rapid 50 but was then undone by the pacey Parkinson. Bolton Abbey came back into the game slowing the run rate and taking wickets but they were unable to remove the defiant Adam Smith who ground out 25* and saw Masham across the finishing line.

Up there with Bolton Abbey and also chasing the 2nd promotion spot are Darley and Pateley Bridge. Darley went down to local rivals Birstwith. Darley made 157-8. Tim Marriner made 38 but Nick Wain took 3-24. Birstwith made 161-9 with captain Dan Riley (64) and Tom Croston (24). Ross Sands took 4-50. Pateley’s 3rd win on the bounce, this time at the expense of Harrogate Strays sees them propelled into contention. Strays made 142-6. Mark Sedgeley hit 35. Tom Fryer took 3-37. Pateley Bridge then took control. Tom Simpson (51) making more runs as well as Colin Chadwick (33) as they made 157-4. Newby Hall are pressing too after a win over Raskelf who batted first and were bowled out for 145. Newby had Jim Blackburn (36) to thank as things were looking dodgy at 24-3. Rob Sigsworth took 3-31.

Ripley knew that points are required for their survival in division 2 and a good win over Knaresborough Forest draws that team into relegation contention. Ripley made 174-7 and Ian Winwood (52). Knaresborough Forest were dismissed for 108. Oliver Cullingworth 39. Sharow batted batted first against Studley Royal 2nds and scored 191-9. Adie Monk 87. Tom Hixon took 4-46. Studley Royal 2nds then made 195-4. Lewis Day 61 and Dan Coad 84*
