Aussie all-rounder Tom Fitzgerald was the star as Filey strolled to an eight-wicket win in Sunday’s Hospital Cup final against Scalby at a sun-drenched North Marine Road.
In-form Scalby right hander Ben Luntley top scored with 34 off 35 balls as his side posted 121-7 from their 20 overs, a total many observers felt was just below par.
Fitzgerald claimed impressive figures of 2-23 from his five overs, while Josh Dawson also picked up a brace.
Despite a good opening spell from Charlie Hopper (1-23) Aaron Howard led the reply with a fine 41 before falling to the miserly spin of Paul Hesp but Fitzgerald steered his side home with three balls remaining as he hit an unbeaten run a ball 52, including six glorious fours.
Hospital Cup president Mick Blackborrow presented the historic cup to Filey captain David Brannan and the player of the match award to a deserving Fitzgerald.
A cheque for £1,000, raised during the summer will be presented to Scarborough Hospital in the near future.
Result: Filey 125-2 (Tom Fitzgerald 54no, Aaron Howard 41) beat Scalby 121-8 (Ben Luntley 34, Tom Fitzgerald 2-23, Josh Dawson 2-37) by 8 wickets.
