Stamford Bridge eased to victory as Beverley’s first team failed with the bat managing to post a score of just 197 from their alloted overs.

“We knew it would be a tough game as Beverley are a strong batting side so we was very happy to keep them to 197.”

Stamdford Bridge made light work of the Beverley top order, Rhodes, when asked about the bowling efforts of his team said;

“We bowled good lines and made them work hard for their runs. They had a lot of luck at the start but fair play they stuck in there. Beckett and myself showed our quality with the ball.”

“As a side we are playing well so we knew against a fairly poor Beverley bowling attack we should knock it off easy and we proved it.”

“Matthew Beckitt, Kevin Murphy and Sam Tennant batted very well and put the bad balls away.”

Stamford Bridge have enjoyed a good start to the season and Rhodes feels the side can kick on and put a real to finish in the promotion places.

Pearson Bamboozles Newport Taking Six Wickets

Pearson Bamboozles Newport Taking Six Wickets

Pearson Bamboozles Newport Taking Six Wickets

On a warmer and sunnier day than experienced so far this season saw two of the Eastern Conference division 1 pace setters face each other at Newport.

Beverley Town Cricket Club were again able to show the strength of their youth players giving 14 year old Sam Pashby his senior debut.

Having won the toss skipper Neil Goforth asked Newport to bat first and Beverley’s youth attack got to work.

The first 6 bowlers used were all between the ages of 13 and 17 and as in previous weeks bowled accurately and with great control. For Newport only P Tough (50) and D Smith (41) were able to make any kind of contribution.

After the early wicket of Ogram, caught by Joey Franklin off Charles Fish, the Beavers had to wait until the 24th over before Pashby took his first senior wicket with another catch by Franklin.

With the youth using up their age restricted overs Beverley turned to left armer Pip Pearson who in the course of 6 overs tied one end down taking 6 wickets for 35 runs in a bamboozling spell. A caught and bowled by C Fish off the last ball of the Newport innings left them with 211 for 9 from their 40 overs.

Beverley’s opening pair put on 28 runs before Will Harrison was caught and the loss of another quick wicket brought 13 year old Ed Chapple to the wicket and together with Will Fish, built a steady partnership with Fish taking the lead role.

A tremendous 70 run partnership from 15 overs took the game to Newport before Will Fish was eventually bowled for 80 (1 x 6, 12 x 4s) with the score on 98.

Chapple was joined by Lewis Richardson and together they built a steady partnership which meant that Newport didn’t have enough time to bowl Beverley out and claim the win.

Chapple showed immense concentration for his 23 over 14 and Richardson’s technique was excellent for his 14 over 13 runs.
Once the youngsters grow a bit more the strength will improve and much faster scoring will come but Beverley’s total of 142 for 7 from their 40 overs was an excellent performance against one of the stronger teams in the division.

Half Century From Greg Whyley Not Enough As Beverley Draw

Half Century From Gregory Whyley Not Enough As Beverley Draw

Half Century From Gregory Whyley Not Enough As Beverley Draw

There was little change at the top of the Hunters York and District Cricket League Division One table as the matches involving the top three all went according to form providing little in the way of drama, however that was not the case at Old Malton Road where the home side lost by single run to Bridlington in the game of the day.

The visitors total of 170 owed much to Casey Rudd who finished two short of what would have been a well deserved century, made on the back of last week’s 56 against Beverley Town II. That the home side remained in the contest owing much to the efforts of Wayne Dawson (3-26) and Stuart Watmore (3-31). Malton & Old Malton’s reply began in the worst possible fashion as the slumped to 44-6 from the first 16 overs, and it took an eighth wicket stand of 88 between Tom Bumby (80) and Ryan Gaughan (18) to bring them back into the game, but despite the pairs heroic endevours it was Tom McMeeken (5-38) who’s effort proved the more decisive.

Nicky Johnson had a day to remember for third placed Driffield Town II as they played host to leaders Sessay, but despite a hat-trick and a half-century he still finished on the losing side. Matthew Till (112) with his second century of the campaign received support from Nick Harrison as the visitors scored 263-7, a total which proved well out of reach of the home side, which was all out for 179, despite an unbeaten 59 from Johnny Addy to go with Johnson’s effort. Stuart Pierse, Liam Carver and Stephen Langstaff all took three wickets as Sessay made it four consecutive wins at the same time ending ‘Town’s unbeaten start to the season.

Second placed Goole Town kept pace with the leaders posting the days highest total of 293-6 to beat Folkton & Flixton by 160 runs, Ben Shelton (104no) and Ashton Nottingham (58) doing most of the scoring for the visitors.

Whitkirk beat Bolton Percy by five wickets, a result which same them take fourth place from the visitors. Having been set a target of 266-8 the home side had Mark Murphy (115) and Simon Webb (85) to thank for a successful chase, the opening pair scoring the majority of their sides total for the second week running in. Earlier in the day Peter Housman (111) and Alistair Rigby (69) had set things rolling for the visitors Joe White also making an unbeaten 40 in a match dominated by the bat.

Mike Hattee (110) and Jonny Rawsthorne (60) scored 166 for the fourth wicket as despite good work from Adrian Long (4-13) Osbaldwick finished in 224-7 against Sewerby, but the home side were unable to force a victory as the visitors closed on 167-8, M Artley top scoring with 50.

It was a similar story between Pickering and Beverley Town Cricket Club second team, five of the Pickering batting line up got beyond 20 but none made it past 35 despite which their total of 202-6 was sufficient to earn them the bulk of the points against the visitor’s that came within 12 runs of victory with eight wickets down, Greg Whyley having led the chase with 53.

Richard Brown having come in at the fall of the first wicket was the only batsman to reach double figure’s finishing unbeaten on 27. Matthew Durkin (26) and Nick Hadfield (21) both finished not out as the hosts romped home inside 17 overs for the loss of just one wicket, and with the two teams below them both losing the reigning champions now have a 24 point lead over the chasing pack.

The biggest upset of the day came at Dunnington, where the home side climbed off the bottom of the table with their first win, a seven wicket victory over previously unbeaten Sheriff Hutton Bridge. The visitors lead by David Bradshaw (72) reached 237-8, but an unbroken partnership between Jack Bolam (76) and Collis King (69) got the hosts home with seven balls to spare after Harwood Williams (55) had set them on the way.

Stamford Bridge took full advantage of those other results to climb into second place, their victory at Beverley Town Cricket Club owing much to all-rounder Mark Beckett who, along with Dom Rhodes.

Each took three wickets at the Norwood Recreation Ground home as Beverley led by Jonny Vodden (50) were restricted to 197-8. Beckett then top scored with 75 as, supported by Kevin Murphy (40) and Sam Tennant (34) , the visitors replied with 198-4.

Joe Dale (72) scored his third half-century of the season, but with only Andy Tute able to provide support the visitors were limited to 178-7. Mark Tennant (37), James Pick (33) and Darren Harland (31) all weighed in for the home side as they reached the target with a couple of overs to spare.

Heworth held on inside the top six despite finishing on the wrong end of the draw at Fenner. Will Parker (102no) and Joe Hewitt (80) shared a third wicket stand of 145 out of the home sides total of 237-3, and despite Oliver Sherwood (44), Neil Johnson (42) and Tom Owen (41) all getting starts for the visitors none were able to go on to play the innings which would have got their side closer than the 188-7 they ended on.

Hull Zingari’s first victory of the season came against Clifton Alliance, but it was a close run thing as they got home with just four balls to spare. Joe Ashdown reached three figures for the second time this season, and his unbeaten 122, along with 58 from John Gilham helped the visitors to 234-6, but despite three wickets each for David Skaith and Alex Renton the hosts got home thanks to James Berridge (60) and Jack Storey (39), before an unbeaten 29 from Callum Hellwig saw them over the line.

Studley Royal are still searching for a first win despite scoring 253-3 against Easingwold, Anthony Mackle (106) and Rob Nicholson (74) shared an opening stand of 131, and Steven Walmsley finished unbeaten on 51 but their efforts only merited a share of the points, because earlier in the day Stephen Piercy (129) and Paul Skilbeck (80) had shared a 166 runs third wicket partnership as the visitors made 266-6 in what was easily the days highest scoring contest.

Cherry Burton’s Skipper Stew Scott ‘Impressed’ With Tom Davies

Cherry Burton skipper Stew Scott says he is looking to Tom Davies to maintain his form going into their game this weekend against Hessle.

Scott was speaking ahead of his sides weekend fixture that will see Hessle visit the Cherry Burton
Pavilion this Saturday.

Speaking to Scott said;

“I have been very impressed with Davies form this season. Last week we got a glimpse of his talent as an all round cricketer as he got both wickets and runs.”

Cherry go into the game in good spirits after they won all 30 points in their previous game against Hull CC last week.

Scott feels his side have hit form at the right time and is confident they can not only score runs but also take wickets as a team.

He added;

“In this form of the game you can score as many runs as you like but if have weak bowlers and cannot take wickets then all you will do is draw.”

“We are improving game on game and have a very good bowling attack that not can take wickets but we can put pressure on our opponents but making it difficult for them to score.”

“On Saturday I am confident there will be plenty in the pitch for the likes of David Butt to attack Hessle and get us the ten wickets we need to win the game.”

“During the winter we as a club had some sessions with a pro cricketer and I think we are really starting to benefit from the work we did with them.”

“The confidence is high in the dressing room and to say we are looking forward to getting out there this weekend would be an understatement.”

“The weather suggests the conditions will be ideal for cricket so we have no excuses, I am very confident we can secure another win.”

Mill Lane Wizards Win Poppleton Juniors Tournament

Mill Lane Wizards Win Poppleton Juniors Tournament

Mill Lane Wizards Win Poppleton Juniors Tournament

Mill Lane Wizards u13’s won their 2nd tournament in a week following up on their York RI success by adding the Poppleton Juniors tournament.

In contrast to the previous week the Wizards started slowly on a bright and breezy Saturday in North Yorkshire but still managed to beat the host team Poppleton Panthers in their first match with a narrow 1:0 victory thanks to a great strike from Matty Blake.

Next up came Pontefract in what turned out to be a very physical encounter. A delay in clearing the ball gave Pontefract an early lead but this galvanised Mill Lane and despite creating some good chances the Wizards couldn’t convert and the match finished 1:0

This put the Wizards under pressure to qualify but with Isaac Adnitt keeping clean sheets and some great play from Ben Gillyon and Danny Wilson, further wins against Malton and another Poppleton side meant the Wizards made the semi-finals as runners up in the league format.

In another hard fought semi-final encounter Mill Lane made the early running but found the Wiggington keeper in fine form to keep the scores level. It was however no surprise when eventually it was Mill Lane who made the breakthrough as concerted pressure finally took its toll and Addison made no mistake from close range. The second half continued in the same vein but with no further scores the Wizards progressed to the final against Heworth.

If the Beverley outfit had started the tournament in second gear they definitely started the final in top gear as they left their best performance till last. With only a couple of minutes gone some great play by Adam Prince and George Addison gave Ben Gillyon a simple tap in for 1:0. More neat interplay between Zac Wise and Wilson put Harry Sadler clean through and he made no mistake for 2:0.

In the second period it was soon 3:0 as Blake fed Sadler on the right and he outpaced the Heworth defence to make it three. However credit must go to Heworth who continued to press and eventually got a deserved consolation goal to make the final score 3:1
