Whitby CC had to settle for a 13-point haul from their winning draw against Redcar.

Ron Lyth top-scored with 60 for Whitby after Redcar's skipper won the toss and invited their visitors to bat first.

Finlay Morris and Jono Chapman both chipped in with 20-apiece, but there were no other telling contributions as Whitby were all out for 180 in 49.3 overs.

Will Donald's 3-20 and two wickets from Chapman and Chris Lyth gave Whitby hope of victory, but Redcar ended their 50-over innings on 140-7.

Whitby 2nds suffered a 26-run defeat after a poor batting display on the road at Guisborough 2nds in Division Two.

The away side won the toss and stuck the hosts into bat and it looked like a win would be on the cards for Andrew Wood's side at the tea interval after they'd bowled Guisborough out for 161.

Liam Calvert, 3-28, Joseph Husband, 3-49 and Stephen Crowther, 2-30, were the away side's wicket-takers.

Andrew Marshall top-scored with 29 in Whitby's reply, but other than scores of 21 from skipper Wood and 20 from Ian Suckling, no other batsman got going and Whitby were all out for 135.
