Appleby Frodingham and Woodlands will contest Sunday’s Yorkshire Premier League final at Headingley (10.30am).

The champions of the Yorkshire Premier League South will face their Bradford League counterparts in order to decide the county’s best club team.

Scunthorpe side Appleby Frodingham will travel to Leeds after brushing Middlesbrough aside in Saturday’s home semi-final, winning by seven wickets chasing only 72.

North Yorkshire South Durham League winners Middlesbrough included Yorkshire Academy head coach James Lowe and Academy spinner Clarke Doughney, who unfortunately missed out on the chance to play at Headingley.

Appleby new ball duo Matthew Harris and Jordan Neil claimed four wickets apiece having elected to bowl first, bowling Middlesbrough out inside 27 overs. The routine chase was led by 37 not out from opener and captain Alex Grimes.

Woodlands are bidding to make it third tine lucky after a similarly straightforwards semi-final win over YPL North champions Driffield Town.

Opener Sam Frankland starred with a superb 101, sharing 170 for the first wicket with Tim Jackson, who added 76 to put Driffield under immediate pressure.

Their alliance formed the backbone of a 50-over total of 284-7 at their Albert Terrace home. In reply, Driffield slipped from a bright start at 44-0, bowled out for 169. New Zealander Brad Schmulian claimed three wickets, as did Chris Brice.

Woodlands have now reached each of the last three YPL finals, being beaten in the last two by Sheriff Hutton Bridge (2019) and Castleford (2021).
