The local cricket scene has been hit by another resignation with Scalby quitting the Greenwood Hire Derwent Valley League Junior League due to a lack of players.

This means that teams in Zone One will have two less fixtures and the cup match between Pickering B and Ebberston (playing tonight) is in effect now a second round match, with the winner through to the semi-final.

This sad news comes just a few days after the resignation of Forge Valley 4ths from the Derwent Valley Cricket League division B, with Staxton under-11s and Snainton under-15s also having to withdraw from their respective leagues due to a lack of players.
