Scarborough and Ganton will battle it out for the Hunter Cup honours in a final that takes place at North Marine Road on August 4, 6pm.

Scarborough, who will be on their home ground for the final, beat Filey and Cayton A on their way there and will be looking for inspiration and wickets from captain Matty Kay, and runs from Josh Mainprize, Joe Padmore and Tom Bussey, and both runs and wickets from all-rounder Tom Bruce.

Meanwhile Ganton, who beat Flixton B and Scalby A on their way to the final, will look to father and son all rounders Ian and Liam Cousins and Sam Carver for both runs and wickets, and runs from Alistair Limb, Rob Middlewood, captain John Bannister and stalwart Rob Gretton.

A close game is expected between these two teams with the game being of 15 eight-ball overs a side and no bowler to bowl more than four overs and with fielding circle restrictions which help to make higher scoring games.

The final will be umpired by Keith Local and Colin Gates.

Entrance to the ground is free, however as always people attending are expected to purchase some raffle tickets which could enable them to win some excellent prizes with the money raised being donated both to local charities and to help bolster Evening Cricket League funds. It is hoped as many local cricket followers and visitors attend this final. Bar facilities will be available during the game.

John Flinton - Chairman of the Andy Hire Scarborough Evening Cricket League as well as a player and senior official of Forge Valley Cricket Club will present the trophies at the end of the game.
