As part of our new website, York Cricket Club has allowed the players the chance to explain a little more about themselves.
All the senior players have answered some straightforward questions on their life inside and outside of the game.
Please use the index above to search through our multi-talented squad to find out just what makes them tick on a Saturday afternoon throughout the summer.
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.
U13 District League Div 1. Sun 10th June
York A 119-5
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.
