2:35pm Wednesday 6th June 2012 in Junior Sport
Daniel Ward, from Kirkbymoor-side, and Sebastian Grace, from Ampleforth, have been selected to play for Yorkshire Under-11s ‘B’ team.
They were presented with their county caps by Yorkshire U11s manager Mark Loker at Aysgarth School.
Ward, an all-rounder, was selected for the Yorkshire Cricket Board’s Pathways to Excellence programme in York over the winter and Grace, a batsman, also came through trials.
Their first game for the county is tomorrow (Thursday) at Houghton Main CC against Nottinghamshire.
Meanwhile, opener Matthew Butler led the way as Malton & Old Malton U15s stormed to a 10-wicket cup victory against Osbaldwick.
Butler (36 not out) and Shaun Harland (23no) saw Malt home in less than ten overs. Strong two-over spells from Toby Sercombe (2-8) and Morgan Fraser (1-10) had kept Osbaldwick in check earlier.
Malton & Old Malton U13s won their cup clash with Clifton Alliance by eight runs.
Jack Charters (31 ret) and Matthew Watson (30 ret) helped to establish a target of 117, and Josh Berry (1-6) and Bradley Freer (2-13) saw Malton to victory with tight four-over spells.
Malton & Old Malton intermediates lost by 76 runs to Woodhouse Grange.
Matthew Hodgson (3-29) and Brett Crowe (2-24) stemmed the runs but Grange made 216-8. In reply, Harland hit 43 and Tom Hodgson 31.
