FYLINGDALES Cricket Club’s first string, following their success against Ravenscar the previous week, visited Ganton on Saturday full of expectation of another scalp.

Ganton batted first and posted a competitive total of 143 all out with Eddie Cooper being the pick of their batsmen, scoring 39. Veteran bowler Andy Smith took 5-34.

Once again, Mario Spagnuolo showed his class with a spirited knock of 35 but Dales were blown away by the bowling of Cooper (5-32) and incredible figures of 5-6 from Rob Gretton, with his last four victims in four deliveries as ‘Dales collapsed from 67-6 to 67 all out.
