A hugely disappointing weekend saw Castleford CC suffer defeats across the board.

The first team lost a high scoring game to Driffield Town in the Yorkshire Premier League North and a day later were knocked out of the YPLN T20 Blast by Woodhouse Grange at the semi-final stage.

In the league match they were looking good for winning points when reaching 268-5 from their 50 overs.

Skipper David Wainwright (4-17) bowled well in vain together with Rowe, who claimed 3-15.

Castleford seconds could not bring any cheer either as they were bowled out for 100 and lost by five wickets to neighbours Ledsham.

Gareth Boucher top scored with 21, but it was hard work against a Ledsham attack led by Liam Fox (3-16) and Freddie Dewhirst (3-34).
