SOUTH HOLDERNESS CRICKET:
This Saturday 10th August 2013, the An Xl return to Middle Lane, to entertain Hessle III, at 2.00pm, in their second to last Conference home game, when Jane Brooks Law, of St. Augustine’s Gate, Hedon, are the Match Ball Sponsors.
Both of the senior teams succumbed to defeats, with the First Eleven going down to a three wicket reverse, at Middle Lane, when the Match Ball was Sponsored by The Flower Shop, of Market Place, Hedon, as local rivals Sutton- on -Hull recorded their win with just three deliveries remaining, with a 205 for 7 reply.
The long serving Duncan Petfield played a big part by top scoring with a sound 54, supported by Charlie Hunter (44), Matt Lucas (20), and Phil Daniels (19).
All-rounder Rich Rosindale had a fine game only to finish on the losing side, as he followed up his hard-hitting unbeaten 81, by returning 3 for 30 in his 12 overs later, whilst Andy Kunkell took 3 for 64 to assist.
For the losers, skipper Rich Ingram was his usual reliable self with a good-looking 53, after the early loss of a wicket, Lewis Duell then supporting with 31, prior to Phil Hill adding 21, in their 203 for 6 in the 48 overs, against Phil Daniels 2 for 34.
SHCC 203 for 6, lost to Sutton-on-Hull CC 205 for 7, by 3 wickets.
Against the Eastern Conference table toppers in Division 2, Gilberdyke, the An Xl tumbled to a mere 94 all out in 32.4 overs, when only Pat Swift with a solid 27 not out, and veteran Steve Crane with 10 managed double figures, Dave Mell causing havoc with an excellent 6 for 33 in his 10 over stint.
Despite youngster Luke Ingram opening the attack for the Hedon based outfit, with pleasing figures of 2 for 9 in his 5 overs, they only took one more wicket, as Matt Rhodes with a vital undefeated 43 and Dave Meer’s 20, quickly obtained an easy seven wicket success in just 18 overs of their reply.
Gilberdyke CC 95 for 3 beat SHCC An Xl 94 all out, by seven wickets.
