FIRST TEAM – Struggling Thirsk entertained local rivals Ripon at the RCG and after winning the toss for the fourth time this season decided to insert the visitors. Visiting captain Rob Taylor totally dominated the Citizen’s innings as he made exactly 100 before being 4th out at 176. Ben Crewe (37) then added some late impetus to see Ripon through to 217 for 5. For Thirsk skipper Mark Cook (3-42) and Stuart Christon (1-31) picked up wickets. After 32 from Stuart Christon and at 141 for 3 with Keiran Fenwick on 59 Thirsk looked to be in a great position to win the game. Any thoughts of a win were quickly dispelled as 5 wickets were lost down for the addition of 20 runs as Thirsk slipped to 161 for 8. J Goode and Jake Porter managed to through the last 7 overs to see the hosts to a 10 point draw. (GHG)

SECOND TEAM – The seconds travelled to Darley in need of an improved batting performance on last week, this we got batting first and posting 222-8 contributions from Josh Howes (20), Joe Hannan (25), Andy Hilton (21),  Rob Garner (51) and Tom Broadley holding the innings together with 36no however the calling and running between the wickets needs work! As usual when we post 200+ a general feeling of job done seems to occur and not for the first time we came up short most of the bowlers with the notable exception of Tom Broadley (3-44) had an off day but this wasn’t helped by a dozen drop catches. Confidence is a little low but we must get back to winning ways asap this week we have our cup game on Thursday away at Ouseburn and on Saturday we step our first foot on the racecourse ground when we entertain Middleham.

THIRD TEAM – Captain Neil; Collinson’s 78 along with good efforts from his son Ben (38), Lewis Banthorpe (29) and Tom Scott (13) saw Thirsk through to 197 for 8 as they visited Boroughbridge to face Helperby 3rds. Unfortunately this was not to be enough as Helperby reached their target for the loss of just 3 wickets. Ben Collinson (1-35), Colin Smith (1-37) and Lewis Banthorpe (1-52) were the Thirsk wicket takers. (GHG)

PEL TEAM – Thirsk lost the toss and were given the duty of bowling first. A tight opening spell from both Jake Porter and Josh Howes both claiming one wicket each saw the Home side bogged down at 27-2 off 9 overs. Opposition captain Matthew Dale then came to the crease and provided impetus to an otherwise lethargic innings and blasted the ball to all parts leaving Acomb on 137 after 18 overs. Thirsk then set out their pursuit of the total with Tom Hogg and Mark Cook (34) opening the batting. The end of Hogg who was caught at mid on saw Joe Caine stride to the crease after a slow start he then went on to assault the opposition bowling dispatching eight enormous sixes on his way to 89* in which he hit a six from the final ball to see Thirsk home to a win by 7 wickets, a truly amazing innings that at times bordered on the ridiculous. Thirsk's first win of the season was a great confidence boost leading into next week’s game against local rivals Sessay. (KF)

UNDER 15s CUP - The under 15s are through to the second round of the cup following their second 8 wicket victory over North Stainley in just three days. Thirsk put the squeeze on the Stainley batsmen with Sam Howes bowling a brilliant spell, taking 1-9 from his 5 overs. The other Thirsk wicket takers were Sian England 1-15, Lewis Banthorpe 1-17 and Aidan Tulloch 1-10. After a run out in the last offer, Stainley were restricted to just 69-5 from their 20 overs. On a wicket that proved tricky for batting and following some tight bowling from the Stainley bowlers, there was some early pressure on the Thirsk batsmen. This led to two unnecessary run outs and it was left to captain Harry Collinson (45 not out) to steady the ship for Thirsk. He, alongside the returning Lewis Banthorpe (14 not out) guided Thirsk to victory in the 17th over. (TB)

UNDER 13s – Thirsk v Easingwold away. Batting first Thirsk scored 42 for 6 from their 20 overs with Sam Howes (18) and Joshua Tart (10) top scoring. Easingwold then took just 11.2 overs to reach their target for the loss of 2 wickets. Even though this result looks bad on paper it was a much improved performance from the previous match. (CF)

UNDER 11s – An excellent all round performance by the U11s saw them beat Northallerton by 68 runs at Farndale Avenue. Batting first the hosts could only manage 182 in the face of some good bowling and fielding by all the Thirsk boys. Joe Tart (4-4), Aaron Hall (3-4), Jake Walker (2-22), Ollie Sleightholm (1-4) and Louis Gouldthorpe (1-12) all picked up wickets for the visitors. Replying Thirsk batted sensibly to reach 250 with Sam Pyman (17), Aaron Hall (13) and Louis Gouldthorpe (9) all making significant contributions. Well done guys, I’m very proud of you. (GHG).
