Another trophy came Beverley Town Cricket Club’s way last Saturday when the 2nd XI won York Senior League Division One.
Although the weather prevented any play in two of the club’s Saturday games and the most vital, the 2nd XI fixture, was also abandoned before completion, news of cancellations and abandonments throughout the league meant the 2nds kept top place in Division one and will be promoted to the York Senior League Premier Division.
