Under 9s versus Walton 10th May

York continued their unbeaten start to the season with a good win over Walton.

Under the excellent captaincy of Abelard Roberts, York bowled first and restricted Walton to 259 for 7 with great bowling from George Armitstead (2 overs 1 for 3) and Jack Robinson (2 overs 1 for 5). Wickets were spread throughout the team with most players picking up 1 wicket.

A strong Walton bowling attack and brilliant fielding restricted York’s chase and at times the victory seemed in doubt.

(Congrats to Alex (Walton) for two superb direct hits resulting in run outs).

However, with Henry Roberts and Jack Robinson batting superbly at the end York secured the victory ending on 285 for 4.


Good luck Walton with your season.


Well done to the team with another victory. Everyone encouraged each other and should be proud of how they played.

Areas to work on revolve around running between the wickets and ensuring we call correctly.


Note to parents, can you please ensure your child has a cap in their bag as last night was a very sunny evening but none of the team had one to wear.
