The Scarborough Evening News - - SPORT -

Cay­ton Cricket Club fell just short of win­ing the Grey Fox Tro­phy for 2017 as they lost by six wick­ets against Hall Park Tem­plars at North Marine Road in a game re­duced to 20 overs.

Colin Den­ton top-scored with 27, but a score of 89-8 was al­ways go­ing to be dif­fi­cult to de­fend.

The home team show great fight­ing spirit in re­duc­ing Park to 42-4 as Den­ton (317) and Mark Wells (0-6 off 4 overs) bowled su­perb spells be­fore knock­ing the runs off with two overs to spare.

Cay­ton topped their group af­ter wins over the CYCL Rene­gades and Bolton Vil­las, plus a rain-af­fected draw against Wetherby Wrin­klies.

They then con­vinc­ingly beat Hep­worth Idle by 59 runs in the semi-fi­nal to set up a place in the fi­nal of the com­pe­ti­tion.

Read­ers Scar­bor­ough Beck­ett League sec­re­tary Si­mon Dob­son has been de­lighted with the im­pact of the side in their first year in the com­pe­ti­tion.

He said “The league have been de­lighted to have been in­volved with the team, who have all en­joyed the op­por­tu­nity to play to­gether af­ter many years in op­pos­ing sides.

“The squad of 19 has been a mas­sive credit to cricket in our area, show­cas­ing our re­gion su­perbly.

“A huge thank-you must go to Steve McAleese who not only cap­tained the team, but has also done all the or­gan­is­ing.

“It is hoped this will be re­peated next sum­mer.”
