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)  

Many thanks to our this week’s match ball sponsors Keepsafe (Window & Door Repairs) www.keepsaferepairs.co.uk and the Cross Keys Thirsk (Public House). The ongoing financial support of these public spirited companies is very much appreciated by all the members of Thirsk Cricket Club. (Sam Spence - Ladies Committee)


First Team (Saturday) - With music from the nearby Galtres Festival very audible throughout the match visiting Thirsk put on a virtuoso performance at Duncombe Park on Saturday. Hostile opening spells from left arm seamer Ben Elders and right arm paceman Stuart Christon were so dominant that the prolific and highly respected home batsman Brian Leckenby could barely lay bat on ball during the early exchanges even to such an extent that when he finally managed the feat he celebrated with an ironic wave of his bat. Park were in all sorts of trouble at 44 for 4 until former Thirsk left hander Peter Kent rode to the home side’s rescue with a typical swashbuckling knock of 71 as his his side managed to reach 165 all out. For the visitors Elders picked up 4-14, James Wilkinson 5-58 and Christon who deserved far better than his paltry return of 1-31 were the wicket takers.

Like their hosts Thirsk also struggled badly at the start of their innings losing 3 wickets for just 23 however captain Mark Cook and Stuart Christon (23) dug in well to add an invaluable 57 for the 4th wicket at which stage Christon was adjudged lbw. If the home side felt this wicket was going to leave the door ajar for them James Wilkinson with a rapid 50no and captain Cook 58no were soon to dispel that idea as they put together a terrific unbroken partnership of 77 to see their side to a well deserved and highly impressive victory. (GHG)

First Team (Monday) - For the 2nd game of the bank holiday weekend Thirsk were again on the road to play Sheriff Hutton. Yet again the visiting bowlers were in fine form as Stuart Christon made up for Saturday’s disappointing return as he wreaked havoc whilst picking up a superb 7 for 11 from his 11.1 overs. Ben Elders again supported very well with 3 for 24. Jake Petty also bowled a good opening spell whilst enjoying very little luck as the hosts were dismissed for a paltry 58 in the 23rd over.

With dark rain crowds circulating the ground it was imperative that the Thirsk batsman made short work of their target so as not to run the risk of an abandonment. Despite playing out a first over maiden Harry Consett (31no) and Tom Jackson (27no) were soon in top gear to fire their side to a 10 wicket victory with 60 overs to spare in a match which lasted just 123 minutes. The quickfire victory was then celebrated over an excellent tea provided by the Sheriff Hutton ladies. (GHG)

Second Team - Thirsk seconds playing their last game of the season at the RCG produced another dominate performance against Scotton. Rob Garner winning the toss for the 7th time on the spin elected to bowl first and with only one rain break they dismissed Scotton for 88. George Bentley the most impressive of the bowlers returning figures of (5-19) ably backed up by the ever reliable Ian Pope (3-19).

After tea we sprinted to our target in 10.4 overs with dark clouds looming the inevitable happened 5 minutes after we finished. Thanks to those who helped to put the covers on at the end in the rain. Josh Howes (39no) and Ian Pope (22) were the men with the runs. Next week we travel to Dacre Banks with an earlier start time of 1.30pm. (RG)

Third Team - The 3rd team enjoyed another good victory with a 6 wicket success against Helperby 3rd team. Adie Porter (6-9) from 7 overs led the way for the visitors with some good support from youngsters Jack Fearn (2-4), Jack Tart (1-12) and Sian England (1-19) as Helperby were shot out for 64.

Despite losing 4 wickets along the way Thirsk were able to reach their victory target with relative ease Harry Collinson, Nick Tart and Phil Brierley all contributing double figure scores. (GHG)
