The Thirsk 2nd team started the new season at the Racecourse Ground with a nail biting 5 wicket victory chasing down our victory target of 184 with 9 balls to spare. With the ball Thirsk started well restricting Marton-cum-Grafton to only 22 runs off the first 14 overs the Marton batsmen could hardly get a bat on Josh Howes whose opening burst brought him 2-8 from 7 overs , however keeping wickets in hand usually pays dividend and despite a good comeback spell from Ross McAndrew 1-28 from his 12 overs marton were able to post 183-4 at tea. Thirsk knowing what we had to chase started at a good tempo with Paul Howes (26) and George Bentley (29) supporting man of the match Josh Howes whose 74 not out was the difference between the sides it was easily josh’s highest senior club score and the longest innings of his career batting throughout the 43.3 overs of the innings. An excellent start to the season in our quest for promotion. (RG)

An excellent all round performance by Tom Hogg helped to see Thirsk 3rd team to an impressive 6 wicket victory against Ouseburn 3rds. Batting first Ouseburn could only manage 128 all out as Hogg with 4-20, Ryan Moore 4-32 and Sian England 2-17 all bowled well. In reply Thirsk lost three early wickets before Hogg (54) and Steve Kettlewell (45*) asserted control to see their side over the finishing line. This week sees the 3rd team Knaresborough Forest 3rd team at Hillside Park. (GHG)

Thirsk Cricket Club is a long established club with three senior teams and a thriving junior section that contains a number of outstanding young prospects.

As you can imagine, there are significant expenses in running a club of our size and without financial support, we would quite simply not be able to function.

This is your opportunity to give your support to the club and become a match ball sponsor for the 2014 season.

For the small cost of £30 (inclusive of VAT) this package would include:  

Acknowledgement as a sponsor on the Thirsk Cricket Club website
A link to your company website from the Thirsk Cricket Club website
Your company name on the match ball sponsors’ board at our ground on Newsham Road
Your Name on our 24” HD TV Screen in the clubhouse throughout the month your ball is used.
Retweets to our 1400+ followers on Twitter
An invitation to come along and partake in one of our excellent cricket teas during the 2014 season
Further acknowledgement of your support in an club advert in the Thirsk Weekly News

On average our website, www.thirskcricket.co.uk receives more than 10,000 hits per year – we have had more than 170,000 hits since launching the site in 2000.  Therefore, by sponsoring a match ball, your business would gain vital exposure.

Thirsk CC is a club with a very proud heritage; and in 1911 became one of the founder members of the York and District Cricket League a league our first eleven still play in today.

After a number of difficult years all three of our Saturday teams enjoyed a much better time in 2013 and if they had started their seasons as they finished them we may well have been celebrating a triple promotion campaign.  As it was the 3rd team containing several of our highly promising youngsters along with one or two experienced older members won promotion from Division 9 of the Nidderdale & District League.

On the junior front the U13’s finished as runners up in the league play-off final as well as winning the league cup following two extremely close games against Bedale. Both Sian England and Ben Collinson represented Yorkshire at U15s & U10s level respectively and performed very impressively whilst doing so.  The emergence of many talented local youngsters continues at all age levels.

In sponsoring Thirsk CC, you will be offering financial assistance to one of the oldest cricket clubs in the region.  Also, your business will be contributing to the ongoing success of a cricket club that takes real pride in the sports development of our young people.

Finally, if you feel you can donate or help the club in any other way, please feel free to contact me on 01845 526201 or 07979 157243.  

Many thanks in anticipation. (Sam Spence - Ladies Committee)


The most noteworthy changes are as follows:

A new No ball Law (24.6) making it a No ball if the bowler breaks the wicket during his delivery stride. (See Law 24)

A batsman with a runner is now protected if he is ‘stumped’ off a No ball. Previously, he would have been out run out. (See Law 2.8)

The moment at which a batsman can be out Handled the ball has been limited to when he is playing the ball or its immediate aftermath, i.e. when defending his wicket. Consequently, only the striker can be out this way. Any subsequent handling by either batsman will be subject to Obstructing the field. (See Laws 33 and 37)

Hit the ball twice – it is no longer possible to score any runs after making a lawful second strike (in defence of his wicket). Previously, runs could be taken after a lawful second strike only after an overthrow had occurred, but this option of run scoring has been removed completely. (See Law 34)

Practice on the field – players are now allowed to bowl a ball to a fielder as a loosener, even if it bounces on the ground, as long as it does not waste time or is not being done to damage the ball. (See Law 17) (PJR)
