Michael Vaughan struck a stunning ton as Yorkshire knocked Roses rivals Lancashire out of the C&G Trophy with a three-wicket win at Old Trafford.

Chasing 287 in the quarter-final, the Tykes won with 14 balls to spare on the back of Vaughan's unbeaten 116.

He struck 11 fours and four sixes from 109 balls, putting on 149 for the fifth wicket with Darren Lehmann (62)

Dominic Cork earlier thrashed an unbeaten 54 off 20 balls as Lancashire posted 286-5 after winning the toss.

The hosts scored at less than three-per-over early on in the game after Mark Chilton fell to Tim Bresnan with the score on 17.

After the early loss of Chilton, Lancashire dawdled to 44-1 after 15 overs.

But Mal Loye and Stuart Law picked up the slack to add 65 for the second wicket.

Chris Silverwood, whose eight overs yielded figures of 2-50, removed both batsmen to catches.

Loye, whose 70-ball 50 included six boundaries, was caught behind before Law was expertly pocketed at point by Richard Dawson for 48 to reduce the hosts to 113-3.

The run-out of Alec Swann for 38 off 64 balls was a blessing in disguise for Lancashire, who stepped on the gas after his dismissal at 195-4.

Carl Hooper rode a painful blow to the thumb to strike five fours and two sixes before falling lbw to Matthew Hoggard, one of three England cricketers on the park along with Vaughan and James Anderson.

He and Cork sped the score from 200 to 250 in 19 balls before the latter swelled the score following the former West Indies skipper's dismissal.

All-rounder Cork put on 60 in 32 balls with Hooper, who made a 66 off 67 balls in a whirlwind finish.

Despite a run-a-ball 43 from captain Craig White, Yorkshire's reply was in tatters early on.

Sajid Mahmood, called into England's one-day squad last week, was instrumental as the visitors stumbled to 85-4.

But the partnership between Vaughan and Lehmann swung the ascendancy back to Yorkshire.

They lost three wickets for 35 with Mahmood's dismissal of Lehmann, but Vaughan was on hand to the end.

"That was special. I don't get many chances to play for Yorkshire, so when I do I like to perform," said Vaughan.

"Roses matches are always big games and although I have beaten the Kiwis in a whitewash, this is right up there with the achievements I have had over the last couple of weeks.

"I want to see Yorkshire win trophies, and if I can help them do it, that is even better."

Lancashire: M J Chilton, M B Loye, S G Law, C L Hooper, P J Horton, A J Swann, P J Martin, W K Hegg (Capt, Wkt), D G Cork, S I Mahmood, J M Anderson.

Yorkshire: M J Wood, C White (Capt), M P Vaughan, P A Jaques, D S Lehmann, A McGrath, R J Blakey (Wkt), C E W Silverwood, R K J Dawson, T T Bresnan, M J Hoggard.

Umpires: J W Holder and B Leadbeater
