The strugglers were bundled out with just 47 to their name, Tom Ward helping himself to 5-12.

Harry Holden (27no) then led Cayton to 52-1 in reply as they cruised to a 20-point haul and a comfortable success.

Fylingdales were knocked off the top of Division Two when they lost by five wickets at Bridlington 2nds.

Jish Rewcroft (3-19) and John Murrell (3-26) impressed with the ball for the villagers as they restricted the away side to what looked like an achievable total.

Ravenscar were bundled out for just 61 however, Rewcroft’s 21 the pick of their batting efforts.

Jake Hatton was in unplayable form for the victors, taking 6-10 which included a hat-trick, helping his side claim top spot in the league standings.

Ravenscar have struggled with the bat so far this season, but Andy Edgar (39) and John Morrison (30) helped the visitors compile a useful total of 173-9.

Valley were always well in the game, but eventually fell just short, being bowled out for 160 as John Nelson returned 4-34.

Tim Farrant (53), Richard Curtis (44) and Dale Tomlinson (39) all impressed with the bat but their efforts evenutally proved in vain.
