York U.13’s were ‘ crowned ‘ County Champions on Sunday following an outstanding victory by 11 runs in the County Final against Bradford & Bingley played at Hopton Millls Cricket Club, West Yorkshire.

York had progressed to the Final through the District Round, followed by wins against Studley Royal, Ackworth and a Semi Final against Hull Zingari.

Batting first they were rewarded with an outstanding opening partnership for the first wicket between Captain Alex Wood and ‘ keeper Batsman Billy Armitstead – both retiring under the Age Group rules with 30 and 33 respectively.

The momentum was continued by Danny Pye (12), Darsh Johar (16no) together with late order contributions from Freddy Iles, George Burton and Noah Watson to finish with a challenging 122 for 5.

Their Opponents opened carefully, a ‘maiden’ for York from Hugo Nixon and then an early wicket in the second over for Captain Wood gave the York Team encouragement. Thereafter, following a few overs rebuilding wickets began to fall regularly as the Opposition reached their 10 over half break at 55 for 4 – building up for a strong finish.

York,however, maintained their composure despite some bowling challenges as the chase began. Some excellent fielding and catching in particular Jamie Talago, Miles Phillips and Ben Cressey restricted the boundaries.

The ‘ run-rate’ required began to climb and the pressure told on the Batsmen with 2 wickets each for Darsh Johar, Noah Watson and Danny Pye – who completed his 4 over spell bowling a ‘ maiden ‘ 18th over to pile the pressure on the Batsmen.

That left the Opposition requiring 27 off the last 2 overs – 9 runs and a wicket in the 19th
left Hugo Nixon to bowl out under pressure, conceding only 6 runs, bowling their last recognised batsman to ‘ close out ‘ the Match in superb style and give the York CC Team an 11 run victory and the County Title.

The Yorkshire Competition began with over 180 Clubs in the County – the largest of any age group in the Country and York now travel to play the Durham County Winners this Sunday as the look to emulate the 2016 U .13 Team by making their way to the the ECB North of England Finals and hoping to become North of England Champions again.

The Club’s U.13 Lead Coach Mark Burn congratulated the Squad for a superb effort and wonderful contributions from everyone to secure the County Title, whilst looking forward to the challenge of the ECB National Knockout stages.

York CC Vs Richmondshire CC – NKO Match Report

York lost out in the regional final of the Royal London ECB Club Championship despite a spirited fight back lead by captain Daniel Woods. The match against visiting  North Yorkshire & South Durham League side Richmondshire went down to the penultimate over but ultimately the home side paid the price for a failure to post a big enough target having chosen to bat first.
The absence of Finlay Bean from the line-up meant Tom Spearman, who had made a half-century against Scarborough in the previous days league match played on the same wicket, moved up the order to open with Duncan Snell, but the young left-hander was unable to repeat that performance facing just three balls before driving the ball into the hands of the cover fielder. The host’s failed to find the boundary in the opening eight over power play by the end of which the score was just 17.  Nick James eventually found the rope and quickly followed it up with another before cutting a ball from Duncan Marshall, playing for the first time having being injured in a pre-season friendly, to point having made 19 off 39 balls the total having reached 47 at the start of the 15th over. Duncan Snell looked on course to reach 50 for the eleventh time this season but fell four short when he was run out by a combination of Gary Pratt and ‘keeper Tom Dowson. The opener played the ball to backward point but miscommunication with Matthew Bell left him unable to re-make his ground and he was forced to depart with the total on 93-3 part way through the 24th of the sides 40 overs. The innings third partnership to reach 40 came between Bell and Charlie Elliot but just as earlier boundaries proved hard to come by Elliot with a four and a six the only time the bowlers came under real pressure. Bell made 40 off 70 and his departure, caught at long-on with six overs to go, sparked something of a collapse as the home side lost four wickets in as many overs. Matthew McKiernan was the main beneficiary of some cavalier stroke play finishing with 3-41, including the wicket of Elliot caught at cover for 24. Only 65 runs came from the final 10 overs despite beginning the period only three wickets down and a final total of 181-7 left the home side needing to bowl and field well to have any chance.
Rob Carr rode his luck early on slicing two fours just out of the reach of Daniel Woods at slip and failed to control a pull shot which just evaded fine leg, the opener continued to play his shots contributing 39 to an stand of 79 from the first 15 overs. It was just prior to that point that the York skipper brought himself on to bowl and wickets in consecutive overs breathed new life into the contest. Opposite number Gary Pratt had been content to work the ball around for his 23 but for some reason chose to charge at the spinner only to be out foxed giving Tom Brooks the opportunity of a stumping. Carr’s indecision on 41 left him stuck on the crease and resulted in a successful lbw appeal, Woods sending back both openers in the space of four balls.  Mike Layfield and Matthew McKiernan regained the initiative for the visitors with a partnership of 51 in 12 overs reducing the target to 43 from the final ten. Layfield struck back-to-back sixes of George Keeley who prior to that point had bowled with good control conceding just 19 from his opening six overs but the batsmen then drove at a wide ball from Oliver Leedham and was caught by a diving Brooks behind the wicket for 44. Despite the setback the visitors still looked on course to complete a straight forward victory but panic set in. Jonathan Moxon had McKiernan caught by Elliot at fine leg for 14, and Woods picked up a third wicket to finish with 3-23. Fortunately for his side Matthew Cowling made 22 off 21 to take the total to within a boundary of the target before edging Guy Darwin to Nick James at slip.  With the scores level Tom Dowson chipped Charlie Elliot to Tom Spearman at cover, before Dale Marshall’s outside edge squirted away to the rope from the final ball of the 39th over to seal the home sides’ fate.

York u13A Vs Heslington – Match Report

U13 District League Div 1.   Sun 10th June
York A 119-5
Heslington 59-4

York Win by 60 runs

A very young York A team where invited to bat by Heslington and within the first 2 overs had lost both senior openers Ben Cressey and George Burton for 1 apiece. A good stand then took place to steady the ship between Josh Ellis and Jamie Talago before Jamie was bowled for 12. This brought in 10 year old Jack Robinson who showed great maturity with regard to both his scoring shots, running and calling. Together with Josh they added over 70 runs with Josh retiring not out on 30* and Jack retiring not out on 31*.

York’s total was given further momentum by both U11’s Ralf Schofield with10* and Aiden Doeg with 16* in the closing few overs. York reaching 119 for 5 from 20 overs.

Credit due to a hardworking Heslington team who gave 8 outfielders a bowl

The Heslington batters found scoring harder against the York bowlers and wickets were taken by Aiden Doeg with 2 and Louis Toulmin with 1. Keeper Lucas Oxley took 3 good catches. Heslington ending on 59-4 with Matthew Richardson holding their innings together with 27 not out.

Congratulations to the whole Team especially those U.11 Players debuting and covering for absent Squad members.
