Red-hot Harrogate will have been left frustrated after their clash with Appelby Frodingham at the weekend was abandoned mid-play due to inclement weather, writes AMITAI WINEHOUSE.

Harrogate continued their excellent form from last week during their batting innings, hitting 241-2.

George Ross and Jonathan Tattersall both impressed for Harrogate, hitting 98 and 96 respectively.

Appelby Frodingham got off to a good start before the weather interrupted their innings of 150-3, with Alex Grimes their best performer, hitting 87.

Another rain-striken clash saw Castleford and Hull awarded three points each after their tie was abandoned uncomplete.

Castleford elected to bat after winning the toss and ran up a record of 260-7, with Charles Finan’s 64 runs key to the display. Jahangir Alam’s three wickets for Hull hindered their batting display.

The game was abandoned during Hull’s (148-4) batting, but Andy Simpson’s 105 run display was impressive.

Another abandonment occurred in Yorkshire Academy’s match against Cleethorpes.

Eliot Callis started Yorkshire off well, hitting 58, with Danesh Hussain also putting together 53 runs.

They finished their innings on 228-6.

Only seven balls were bowled when Cleethorpes batted, but Bill Kirby suffered the ignominy of being bowled from the first ball of the innings.

The tie between Sheffield Collegiate (148-1) and Driffield Town was also abandoned.

Doncaster Town (232-9) beat Rotherham Town (167) in one of few completed ties, in part thanks to Alex Gosney’s century.

Elsewhere, Sheffield United (153) lost against Barnsley (154-3).
