No charity as Malton take derby spoils in Senior League
8:30am Wednesday 14th August 2013 in Sport
Malton’s Tony Linsley took 4-14 and Stuart Whatmore 4-8, being in no mood to show charity to their Ryedale neighbours.
After the loss of an early wicket, Morgan Fraser (32no) and Jim Baxter (41no) then took their side to a nine-wicket win. In a young Pickering side, 15-year-old Johnny Bayes made 13 but the experienced Linsley was too good as his team comprehensively outplayed the Pikes in all departments.
Sheriff Hutton Bridge II were without five of their more experienced players when they entertained Londesborough Park II in division five.
In the circumstances they did well to gain a draw – their very young side almost forcing victory.
Londesborough were reduced to 33-3 before Ed Smith (42) and Tom Williamson (31no) improved their fortunes. Teenage paceman Danny Clipston produced a career best 6-33 for the hosts as Park were held to 159-9.
Tom Eagling hit back, taking 5-23, but SHB recovered from 46-4 to edge close in a tight finish before drawing at 153-9.
Their maintaining of their unbeaten record owed much to Alec Snowball, who was unbeaten with 28.
Stamford Bridge II lifted themselves up to 10th place when they beat promotion contenders Stillington by four wickets.
For Stillington, four batsmen made worthwhile contributions with the best effort being Toby Wells’ 46. His three helpers were Jack Cartwright (35), Oliver Everard (28) and Mark Aconley (25). Stamford’s main wicket- takers in the all-out total of 186 were Martin Veysey (3-28) and Mark Fairweather (3-43).
The hosts’ successful drive to a winning 188-6 was navigated by Chris Smith (79) with Roddie Vann co-driving (32). Wayne Linton took 3-44 for the losers.
Sam Thompson hit 104 as Osbaldwick made a victorious 236-7 against Hovingham in division six.
He was supported by Tom Guildford (49) and Ben Wray (27).
Earlier, Hovingham’s batsmen had also revelled in the conditions with J Dean making 41, C Thorpe 93, George Wainwright 37 and S Newton 25 not out in a first-innings total of 233-9.
Successful in the bowling department were Stuart Hall (3-44) and Ollie Cambridge (3-37) for Osbaldwick and C Prest (3-40) and C Higginbotham (3-10) for Hovingham.
Sheriff Hutton retained second place in division seven with a sixwicket win at neighbouring Stillington.
The hosts were only able to set a target of 147-7. This included 42 by Steve Back, 32 by on-loan junior Matt Maltby and 31 by Jason Dale.
Johnny Armitage then made 73 as Sheriff won with some ease
