Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - CRICKE4T -

YORK­SHIRE LEAGUES KNOCK­OUT CUP: Ap­pleby Frod­ing­ham, lan­guish­ing at the bot­tom of York­shire South with just one win, booked a spot in the quar­ter-fi­nals at the ex­pense of cup hold­ers Stam­ford Bridge.

Opener Ryan Gibson (42) was top scorer in Bridge’s 196-9, but any hopes they had that the home side would col­lapse were swept away with an open­ing stand of 106 be­tween cap­tain Matthew Mor­land and Ryan Schier­hout (44).

Mor­land went on to make 68no and with Kieran Lind­ley (40no), saw Ap­pleby Frod­ing­ham home by eight wick­ets.

Olivier Leed­ham pro­duced a stun­ning 4.1-over spell of 5-4 and with Alex Rose (3-39) skit­tled out Tree­ton for 84. Nick Jones (43no) then eased York through.

A 99-run part­ner­ship be­tween Christo­pher Bil­ton (90) and James Finch, who in­cluded five fours and four sixes in his 64no, helped Wood­house Grange race to 277-7 in their 40 overs. That proved far too good for Scar­bor­ough who were bowled out for 131, Chris Sud­daby tak­ing 4-23.

Sh­effield Col­le­giate looked on top in the clash of the top two in York­shire South when Tom El­dred (3-43) and Jamie Car­ring­ton (4-14) re­stricted Wake­field Thornes to 142. But their bat­ting never got go­ing and Josh Shaw (4-30) and Steve Mor­gan (3-12) bowled them out for 106.
