FIRST TEAM – In perfect cricketing weather on arguably the most picturesque ground in the Y&DSCL 10 man Thirsk gave an excellent all round team performance to beat host’s Londesbrough Park by 5 wickets. After winning the toss and choosing to bat the home side were in trouble at 72 for 4 in the 24th over as Stuart Christon, Jake Porter and James Wilkinson ripped out the top order with fine spells. That Park were able to recover to a competitive 210 for 9 at the close was mainly due to 81 from G Dawson whilst for the visitors Harry Consett picked up a highly creditable 4-49.

It has been quite a while since Thirsk have succeeded in chasing down a total in excess of 200 but all looked well as thanks to Harry Consett (53) and the in-form Keiran Fenwick (45) the visitors moved serenely to 127 for 1 in the 28th over, It’s not in Thirsk’s psyche to make things easy for themselves and after a mini collapse which saw them lose 4 wickets for 24 runs the match was again in the balance. Requiring 57 from 8 overs Stuart Christon with a superb knock of 56no and John Cook (14no) seized the initiative to see their side over the line with 8 balls to spare. A great effort that will live long in the memory. (GHG)

SECOND TEAM – An under strength second team entertained Bolton Abbey on the Racecourse ground. Batting first Thirsk after an early collapse mustered 163-8 thanks mainly to Lewis Banthorpe who opened the batting with a fine 31 and stumper Andy Hilton (44) who now lies second in runs scored this year with 152 nearly triple what he made in the whole of last season and we are only at the half way point.

In reality this was never going to be enough with a depleted bowling attack despite taking a wicket with the first ball of the innings Bolton Abbey romped home with more than 10 overs to spare. Best bowlers of the day were Ben Collinson who bowled 10 overs and took (2-33) and Lewis Banthorpe who capped off a memorable personal day with (3-22). Next week we travel to Marton-Cum-Grafton (RG)

THIRD TEAM –.No match this week

PEL TEAM – Thirsk won the toss and elected to bat first when they visited Sheriff Hutton. Another slow start brought Joe Caine to the crease and he continued his fine recent form with another blistering display of hitting reaching 34 before being caught on the long on boundary. A good team effort then saw every man in the team contributing to the total with some great running between the wickets. Thirsk finished on 117-9 from their 20 overs.

Sherrif Hutton then took to the field and were immediately put under pressure with James Wikinson bowling a maiden to restrict the flow of runs leaving Harry Consett at the opposite end to claim 3-12. A couple of run outs followed and Thirsk were very much in the driving seat. Ben Morgan with (2-14) followed the opening bowler’s example as Thirsk eased to victory with the home side only able to make 40-9 from their 20 overs. (KF)

UNDER 15s (Tuesday League v Bedale) – After being in trouble the U15s were heavily indebted to 12 year old Ben Collinson (34no) who saw them to victory with a mature innings belying his tender years. (GHG)

UNDER 15s (Thursday Cup v North Stainley) – Captain Harry Collinson (50no) was the main contributor to 15s cup win against visitors North Stainley.

UNDER 15s (Monday League v Marton) – The 15s chalked up their 3rd victory in the space of a week when they beat Marton by 79 runs.

UNDER 13s -.Batting first Alne amassed 119 for 4. The Thirsk bowling and fielding this weekend was far below our usual high standard. The 20 extras going on to the Alne score was always going to cause problems. As it turned out Thirsk finished the day on 91 for 5. Good knocks from Ben Collinson 30 retired and Sam Howes 30 retired but sadly we lacked the lower order fire power. Top bowler for Thirsk was Josh Neilson who had the impressive figures of 3 overs 12 runs for 2 wickets. (CF)

UNDER 11s – An excellent all round bowling and fielding display saw an understrength Thirsk restrict FOG CDG to 232 for 7 after inviting them to bat first at the RCG. Everybody performed really well with the ball Nathaniel Todd (3-1-12-2), Aaron Hall (3-0-20-2), Joe Tart (2-0-4-1) Matthew Aubin (3-0-14-1), Jake Walker (3-0-15-1), Rory Barningham (1-0-1-0) and debutant Ivan Mellor (1-0-10-0) who only came into the team at the last minute.

Unfortunately FOG strong bowling attack were able to wrestle back the initiative with Thirsk only able to make 203 for 7 in reply. Nathaniel Todd (13no), Jake Walker (7no), Rory Barningham (2no) and Joe Tart (1no) all batted really well and without a couple of silly run outs Thirsk would have been even closer to their target. Both Adie and I will take a lot of positives from this performance and believe we have some very good young players on board well done everybody. (GHG)

UNDER 9s – Thirsk beat Bedale by 10 runs with Otto Cockcroft (41no) again leading the way for the winners. (HC)). Next week as we reach the half way point its 4th versus 3rd at the racecourse ground. (RG)
