With the U9s and U15s not having a game this week, plus the abandonment of both Wednesday’s Pilmoor fixture against Clifton and the 2s Saturday trip to Malton; it has indeed been a quiet week at SHBCC!
The U11s kicked off the week with their trip to Dunnington. Restricting them to 297-4 from their 16, with the wickets being shared around, SHBCC finished 257-5 in reply. The guys go again on Wednesday with a trip to York!
Moving onto Saturday. With the 2s being 59-1 through 19 overs before the rain struck, any chance of decent points for the bridge laid in the hands of the 1s. In a rain affected match, winning the toss and choosing to field, the lads restricted Sessay to 109-7 through 38 overs. The wickets were shared across all 5 bowlers. With Duckworth Lewis, this meant the boys needed 121 from 38 overs. In reply Louis Foxton and Adam Fisher got us off to a good start at 78-0, but with 2 quick wickets falling, the job was left to Eddie Barnes and Dulash Udayanga to finish off. The lads getting to the total in 22 overs. A solid 8 points for the boys and a great bounce back from the previous weeks result.
Sunday saw the U13s in action against Ovington. Bowling first, SHBCC restricted Ovington to 68-5, with wickets being shared around. Will Warren then hit 31 off 11 balls to get the team off to a flying start. Although losing 3 wickets in the chase, the boys got home in 14 overs. With potentially two games this week, the lads will look to keep the momentum up going forward!
Sunday also saw a return into the famous national village cup for the 2s, visit a visit to Forge Valley. With unavailability really hitting the squad, Captain Jack Hugill took a slightly weakened team across to kick start the campaign. Winning the toss and bowling first, SHBCC restricted Forge Valley 84 all out, with youngster Joe Judge taking 4 fer! In reply, the lads knocked the total off 3 down! A great result for the lads after yesterdays rain disappointment. Can the miracle of 2005 be recreated? We can only hope!
This week for SHBCC is a big one including the start of our all stars program, running on Thursday nights at 6.30pm until July 4th, and the Hunters T20 blasts in which we host Scarborough CC and Yorkshire Academy on Sunday complete with BBQ and a raffle with some great prizes, perfect for all the family! We hope you join us at some point this week for another week filled with cricket!
