MATCH REPORTS – Malc Ripley
After successive wins, both of the Middle Lane senior teams, were quickly brought to earth with a bang last week!
Good teamwork at Hedon, from the Beverley CC thirds, proved enough to secure a comfortable 28 run victory for the visitors against South Holderness First Eleven.
New skipper this time, Andy Burton led the way with a seven fours, in a work-man-like 42, veteran Tim Fordon adding 36, before teenager Tom Norton added a solid-looking 20 not out.
Holderness’s captain Rich Ingram, put the brake on the scoring rate, with 12 restrictive, accurate overs realising 1 for 21, supported by all-rounder Lewis Duell with 3 for 32, and the long serving Rich Rosindale returning 2 for 21, also in 12 overs, as the total ended on 161 for 7 in their 48 overs.
The home side never recovered from a poor start in reply, with wickets tumbling to show 39 for 5 on the board.
Keeper Jamie Walkley batted resolutely to halt the slide, making 26 before his stumps were shattered, to leave only left-hander Phil Hill, and to reach a personal milestone with his first half century for the first Xl. His valiant effort contained two sixes and eight hard hit boundaries for his 57, before he uncharacteristically swished across the line, to have his pegs wrecked.
All rounder Rich Rosindale, somewhat surprisingly, arrived to bat at number 10, only to be left high and dry, with a sound 17 not out, in their 133 total.
Youngsters Brad Graham (4 for 30,) and Matt Saint with good figures of 3 for 14 in his 9 tight overs, played big parts in the Beavers win, in a batting effort the 1sts will quickly want to forget.
The Match was Sponsored by Drapers Metal Merchants Ltd , of Raven Street, Hull.
On a somewhat unpredictable Skidby CC pitch, the An Xl tumbled to only their second reverse of the summer, to complete a difficult weekend for SHCC, when going down by a 42 run margin.
They still remain in fourth place in the Conference, with a match in hand over table-toppers Gilberdyke CC, but it could prove to be too much of an uphill task to return to the top, come 24th August 2013, which signals their last match, with only seven encounters left to play.
Fenner CC Under 17’s 145 for 3 in 20 overs, (Ben Hatfield 52no, Joe Hewitt 49, Harry Giles 2 for 20), Beat SHCC U17’s 53 for 8 in 20 overs, (Lewis Hunt 20no, James Naylor 7no.) by 92 runs.

East Riding Cricket Umpires & Scorers Association is celebrating its Diamond Jubilee this year with a number of events throughout the summer.
An Arcade Exhibition on the history of the association is currently taking place at the Hull History Centre, with cartoons, poetry, biographies, photographs and a range of cricketing artefacts on display.
The display focuses mainly the history of the Association and some of the major characters who have graced it over the past sixty years. Some of these gentlemen are renowned figures in East Yorkshire cricketing circles!
The exhibition is on until Monday 29th July 2013 and the treasurer of ERCUSA, Michael Free, has produced an illustrated book to accompany it. With a foreword by Dickie Bird, it expands on the written material on display and gives an interesting insight into some of the characters who have umpired local cricket!
