Scarborough won the toss at North Marine Road and elected to field first against Stamford Bridge but early ill-discipline with the ball saw the visiting openers put on 42 before Jack Redshaw struck, writes Simon Dobson.
The third-wicket pairing of Brandon Faber (64 off 67 balls) and Dom Rhodes, who hit 55 from 50 balls threatened to post a mammoth total and take the game away from the hosts, but fine bowling from Archie Hammond pegged them back.
The left-arm spinner claimed his maiden first-team five-wicket haul to finish with 5-48, as the visitors posted a challenging 229-7 from their 50 overs.
Opening pair Rob Pinder and Redshaw found runs hard to come by and both fell to Alfie Oliver (2-22) when playing aggressive shots down the ground and the innings failed to recover. Clarke Doughney top scored with 30 and Gill added 18, but Dave Chaplin’s 3-35, Denson Narayan, who claimed 2-13 and tight bowling from Kevin Murphy eased Bridge to an overwhelming 115 run win.
