Sheriff Hutton Bridge Cricket Club

Playing Cricket with SHB will be fun – Matty Fisher

Matthew Fisher writes a regular blog for Yorkshire CCC and his most recent article includes this excellent overview of our season.

“There are plenty of second-team games to play in, and I should also be playing some league cricket with Sheriff Hutton Bridge, which will be fun.

It’s important I play enough to get 100 percent fit and build my confidence in my body. That maybe didn’t happen last year when I came back from my side injury. I didn’t have that long in Yorkshire’s second team and there was a bit of doubt there.

There are a lot of really good things happening at Bridge at the moment.

On the field, we think we have a good chance of winning the Premier League North this year, probably the best chance we’ll have had since the structure of club cricket in Yorkshire was changed at the end of 2015.

We have some excellent young players who are improving year on year, led by my eldest brother Adam.

Adam and my other brother Mark are also two of the best players in the league.

We also have Karl Carver, Ed Barnes and myself from Yorkshire alongside our Sri Lanka pro, Dulash Udayanga, who scored a lot of runs last year.

Off the field, we are raising money for a couple of causes, York Against Cancer and improving our junior set-up.

Last Saturday, a group from the club took on the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge, a 26-mile walk which they completed in 10 and a half hours and raised over £4,000.”
