Donald then hit the heights at the top of the order with 42, but he found partners hard to come by as Whitby slumped to 76-6.

Andrew Marshall's 59 and scores in the 40s from Robbie Hurworth and Lewis Brearley helped Whitby to a declared score of 231-6.

Adam Hogarth and Stephen Crowther then took control with respective figures of 5-29 and 2-44 to dismiss Yarm for 188.

Whitby 3rds made it three wins out of three for the club on Sunday when they beat Seaton Carew 3rds by seven wickets.

The Whitby bowlers ripped through Carew's top order, with Alfie Swales taking the first wicket, before Mark McCarthy left them on 16-5.

Liam Calvert came on and finished with 2-4, while McCarthy did the rest, his 5-12 from eight overs bowling them out for 85.

All-rounder Calvert then remained unbeaten on 34, with Tim Richardson's 20 making sure Whitby claimed the victory.
