 CRAIG HILLGROVE - THIRSK CC’s FIRST OVERSEAS PLAYER 1994  
   
Lock up your drinks cabinets, your grandmothers etc etc because news has reached me from the man himself that 20 years after he became Thirsk CC’s first overseas player the one and only Craig Hillgrove is planning a return visit to these parts in late June or early July 2015. From one of us who knew the man first time round rest assured this will be an occasion not to be missed and we will be looking to set up some form of 20/20 cricket match to celebrate. (GHG)

 MATCH REPORTS - WEEK EIGHTEEN  
   
First Team - For almost 35 overs of the second innings Thirsk’s total of 152 for 8 looked like being more than enough to pick up the lion’s share of the points against visitor’s Woodhouse Grange 2nds. Unfortunately an excellent innings of 73no from Matthew Durkin was to break Thirsk hearts as the left hander along with wicketkeeper Dan Wilson put on 80 in under 9 overs to see his side to a 6 wicket victory. Batting first in difficult conditions the majority of Thirsk’s hard earned runs came from Mark Cook (36), Des Wyrill (34) and Tom Jackson (29) whilst Alex Burton picked up 5 for 19 for the Grange.

Shorn of 3 members of their regular bowling attack but buoyed by the inclusion of Barry Petty the Thirsk bowlers all started well with Ross McAndrew (2-42), Petty and Jake Porter reducing the visitors to 65 for 4 before Durkin took control of the proceedings. Thirsk will hope to be close to full strength for their two tough bank holiday fixtures on Saturday at Duncombe Park and Monday at Sheriff Hutton. (GHG)

Second Team - The seconds travelled to league leaders Raskelf this weekend desperate for a game of cricket having played only once in the last 4 weeks. Some good tight bowling from George Bentley (2-39), Ian Pope (1-35), Josh Howes (1-26) and Oli Tindall (2-38) restricted Raskelf to 154-7 at the half way stage.

However our lack of recent match practice came back to haunt us in that most of our batsman got in and got out falling 31 runs short of our target and being dismissed off the penultimate ball of the match for the first time this season being all out and not getting a batting point. Top scorers Ian Pope (39), Paul Howes(22), Josh Howes (17) and Oli Tindall (17) didn’t deserve to be on the losing side in a close game that could have gone either way. Saturday sees us entertain Scotton 2nds at the Racecourse. (RG)  

Third Team - The 3rd team’s good run of form continued when they came out by 72 runs when visiting Bedale 2nd team. After a difficult start which saw them slip to 47 for 4 an excellent stand of 140 between captain Neil Collinson (83) and Adie Porter (59) delivered Thirsk into calmer waters allowing them to reach 200 for 8.

After the interval youngsters Josh Peirse and Sian England both bowled tight spells without managing to pick up any wickets. Josh’s grandad George Peirse then showed them the way as he picked up 5 for 45 and along with Harry Collinson (1-3) and Jack Tart (1-12) saw Bedale dismissed for 128. This week we are on the road again as we travel to take on Helperby 3rds. (GHG)

PEL Team - An agonising 10 run defeat in the championship play off against SHB ended Thirsk’s Pilmoor League title hopes. Good contributions from both Keiran Fenwick and Tom Jackson had put Thirsk in control as they reached 64 for 2 from 9 overs chasing Bridge’s 107 for 8 achieved in 18. After Fenwick was caught on the boundary edge after chancing his arm once too often a disastrous run out saw Jackson back in the pavillion as Thirsk slipped to 68 for 5. Unfortunately the middle order collapse continued and it was left to youngsters Tom Hogg and Harry Collinson to ressurect Thirsk’s hopes and despite a brave effort the task was just beyond them. Earlier some good bowling from captain Stuart Christon and James Wilkinson helped restrict Bridge to a lower total than at times looked likely. (GHG)
