Only three of Thursday’s Andy Hire Evening Cricket League games went ahead, with the rain once again decimating the programme.

Seamer A beat fellow division A strugglers Wykeham A by 60 runs.

Seamer posted a score of 101-7, Aussie ace Brandon Tyzzer hitting a tidy 26.

In reply the three-pronged attack of Jamie Haxby, 3-14, Matty Morris, 3-13, and Dan Jewitt, 3-7 saw Wykeham skittled for a miserly 41.

Third-placed Staxton A defeated basement club Cloughton A by eight wickets.

The visitors batted first and limped to 83-7, spinners Elliott Cooper and Linden Gray taking three wickets apiece.

Rob Pinder’s unbeaten 36 and Dan Bulman’s 29 saw Staxton safely home.

The only other game played weas the division C fixture between Scalby B and visitors Muston, the home side winning by 28 runs.

Skipper Bradley Walker continued his fine form, smashing an unbeaten 46 as the home side posted 135-3, linking up well with Carl Marton, 31no.

Phil Robson gave Muston a fighting chance with an impressive 68, but accurate bowling from Adie Hollingsworth, 4-12, saw the visitors limited to 107-6.
