Whitby batted first and made it to 171-9, Buck hitting the bulk of their runs as only opener Finlay Morris (25) offered any real support.

Opener Albert Aurelius top-scored for the hosts with 31, but it looked like Whitby were going to get the victory as Steven Allen (3-34), James Hall (3-39), William Donald (2-21) and Jono Chapman (1-13) proved too hot to handle for the Northallerton batsmen.

The hosts managed to hold out though, finishing on 142-9 and leaving Whitby frustrated.

Whitby 2nds were well-beaten by Normanby Hall in Division Two.

Hall batted first and made it to 144-7, Ricky Hall (4-37) and Matthew Towey (3-32) taking the wickets to fall.

In reply, Whitby's batsmen had no answer to the bowling of Francois Kroukamp, who took 6-36 as the home side were all out for just 94.

None of the Whitby batsmen made it to 20, with Andrew Wood (19) and Towey (17) their top-scorers.
