Cricket: Beverley chalk up remarkable double
In local cricket, there was a dramatic finish in the bottom of the Yorkshire Premier League North clash at Oval View, where Sessay played host to Beverley Town.
The match got off to a delayed start and was reduced to 30 overs a side and having been put into bat, the visitors fought to reach 116-8, Robert Fish the top scorer with 23 before he was run out by Navin Kavikara – the Sri Lankan also picking up three wickets for 26 runs with the ball.
Skipper Matthew Till made 22 for the home side in the early stages of their reply and it looked as though Mark Jackson (34) would see them home, but when he was out, 17 were still needed off 19 balls.
Town’s skipper Andrew Burton conceded just three from the penultimate over and Greg Whyley five from the last to secure a memorable win for Beverley.
It meant the visitors completed the double over their hosts but both sides still have it all to do if they are to avoid relegation.
