I recently received the following email from Jane Tart mother of three of our junior cricketers and a regular scorer for the U15s team and felt it deserved a wider audience. Full credit to the coaches Ian Pope and George Peirse as well as the U15s players not just CHAMPIONS at cricket but CHAMPION people as well. Thirsk Cricket Club is very proud of you all. (GHG)

Hi George,

I just wanted to say that I have really enjoyed scoring for the Under 15's this season. Ian and George have done a great job coaching, keeping them focused throughout the season in order to become league champions. They are a great set of lads, including of course Sian, with a strong sporting and team ethos. Having transported a number of them around to different venues during the season I can also say that they are friendly and polite and a real credit to the club and their parents.

As a parent I also feel that it is great that we have an enthusiastic and dedicated coaching team for all the age groups and we are proud to be associated with Thirsk CC.

Please feel free to pass this on to Ian and the other coaches.

Kind Regards,



Many thanks to this weeks 3 match ball sponsor’s W Gaunt Ltd (Building & Plumbing Merchants) www.w-gaunt1.co.uk, Mr & Mrs Charlie Garner and Fox Mouldings (Trophies & Statues) www.foxmouldings.co.uk. Their ongoing help and support is very greatly appreciated by all the members of Thirsk Cricket Club. (Sam Spence - Ladies Committee)

First Team League - Following their recent good run of form Thirsk came down to earth with a bump on Saturday when they played host to Harrogate 2nds at the RCG. After winning the toss Thirsk decided to make first use of what looked like a good pitch for batting. Unfortunately after slipping to 33 for 5 against some impressive Harrogate seam bowling it appeared as though this decision had been a major error of judgement. James Wilkinson and John Owen managed to rebuild as they added 41 for the 6th wicket before Owen (13) became the first of two lbw decisions in two balls. Wilkinson continued to play some excellent shots as he made a seasonal best 63 before committing suicide attempting a total unnecessary 2nd run as Thirsk finished 132 all out. 

In reply despite fighting all the way the Thirsk score always looked as though it was 25 or 30 runs short of what was needed. Jake Porter 3-31 and James Wilkinson did manage to pick some wickets up but despite taking 42 overs to reach their target the visitors ended with a comfortable 6 wicket victory. (GHG)

First Team Readman Cup - Sunday morning saw Thirsk travel to Sheriff Hutton to participate in the round robin format of the Readman Cup. With the host club unable to field a team and conceding both their matches, it came down to a two way shoot out between Thirsk and Whitkirk to decide who would progress to this Sunday’s finals day at Pocklington. Bowling first up Stuart Christon with 4 overs 1 maiden 1 for 11 set the standard for his team mates to follow. Fortunately they all managed to follow suit and despite 40 from M Murphy, Thirsk were able to hold their division 1 opponents to 134 for 7 from their 20 overs. James Wilkinson (1-20), Jake Petty (1-26), Jake Porter (1-32) and Harry Consett (1-37) all playing their part.

After his magnificent unbeaten 100 in the last round Harry Consett was again very much to the fore as and Tom Jackson rapidly put on 37 for the first wicket before Jackson was dismissed for 10. However this setback didn’t stop Consett as he carried on his merry way iin partnership with Stuart Christon as they added 60 for the 2nd wicket at which point Christon went lbw for 36. James Wilkinson was them stumped for 13 before Consett was caught on the mid wicket boundary. Thankfully John Owen (11no) was able to calm any nerves for Thirsk with a cut for 4 to seal a 6 wicket victory with 9 balls to spare. After the disappointment of the previous day this was a very good all round performance by Thirsk - well done fellows. (GHG)

Second Team
- Thirsk 2nds travelled to Studley Deer Park to take on Studley Royal fourths. After inserting our hosts some wayward early bowling saw Studley off to a flyer and it was the spin twins of Tom Broadley (2-37) and Colin Smith (2-32) who began the visitor’s revival. Rob Garner weighed in with (3-19) and the ever reliable Ian Pope (1-33) as Studley made 165-9 at tea.

Thirsk made a steady start in reply putting on 66 for the first wicket. But after losing both openers inside 3 overs including Fred Trueman (66) on his first Saturday outing of the year and a flurry of wickets thereafter it kept the match in the balance. Middle order cameos from Colin Smith (23) and Tom Broadley (12) recovering from 113-5 to 140-5 it left us needing 24 from the last 33 balls when the sixth wicket partnership was broken. Despite Andy Hilton (14no) and the wagging tail our final effort came up 2 runs short at 163-9. A great effort after a couple of late withdrawals due to work commitments as we nearly pulled off a remarkable victory our fighting spirit deserved. (RG)

Third Team - With veteran George Peirse turning the clock back with a magnificent spell of 9 overs 7 maidens 4 wickets for 6 runs a performance he no doubt suffered for on Sunday morning Thirsk were able to pick up a much needed win against West Tanfield 2nds at Hillside Park on Saturday. Batting first the visitors were able to make 131 for 9 with Sian England (1-25), Adie Porter (2-48), Jack Tart (1-34), regular wicket keeper Harry Collinson (1-17) and the aforementioned Peirse doing the damage for Thirsk.

Youngster Harry Collinson (41) and club secretary Ken Major (19) then gave Thirsk an excellent start in reply putting on 68 for the 1st wicket. Thirsk then suffered a serious collapse as 5 wickets fell for just 17 runs. Thankfully another old head in the shape of Adie Porter (35no) with excellent assistance from youngster Jack Tart (13no) were able to guide Thirsk to their target without further loss. (GHG)

PEL Team - Thirsk lost by 8 wickets at Clifton Alliance a result which has probably ended any hopes of winning the title. (SC)
