David White hit a brilliant unbeaten century as Tickhill thrashed Hallam to reignite their hopes of avoiding relegation from the ECB Yorkshire South Premier League.

The South African compiled an excellent 137 not out, including 12 fours and four sixes, to help the Doncaster club pile on the runs.

He was supported by Ashley Fiddler who made 57 and stumper Jordan Lowe who produced quickfire 55 in 38 balls.

Tickhill closed on 282-2 from their 50 overs, and then wasted no time in turning the screw on Hallam as the visitors were reduced to 39-7.

The twin attack of James and Callum Stuart ripped through the top order and no fewer than five Hallam batsmen departed without scoring as they eventually succumbed to 67 all out.

Callum Stuart snared 5-14, James Stuart claimed 3-25 and Edward Ellis chipped in with 2-1 to complete a 215-run victory.

Aston Hall’s big win at home to Cleethorpes means Tickhill remain 18 points adrift of safety but there are still five games remaining.

They host Treeton on Saturday.
