SOUTH HOLDERNESS CRICKET at Middle Lane, Saturday 31st August 2013, at 2.00pm, the An Xl take on Newport CC. Match Ball Sponsored by K Metcalfe, Same Day Couriers.
The An XI‘s penultimate home game against Driffield CC Fifths, was washed away with out a ball bowled last Saturday, before the same squad entertain Newport CC in their last League fixture of the campaign at Middle Lane, on Saturday..
At Brantingham Park, on the HICE CC vastly improved square, the First Team succumbed to their fourth successive defeat, in a relatively low-scoring affair as the home team found runs generally hard to find, before they eventually eased home by a three wicket margin off 26.2 overs, with their 95 for 7 reply.
A pleasing note for the Hedon based outfit was the successful 14 ball spell by the up and coming teenager and all-rounder Luke Ingram, whose spell gave him great figures of 3 wickets for just three runs, all his victims being bowled!
Andy Kunkell took his tally of wickets to 16 with his support to return figures worth 4 for 24 in seven fine overs, but the all-rounder is way behind leading wicket taker Rich Rosindale, who has 33 victims this term.
James Forrester with a solid 37, Dave Baker (15), and Dan Dailey (14), scored the bulk for the winners, this result giving Holderness ten defeats in their in their 19 starts, with 8 victories.
Only left-hander Phil Hill with his patient 30, captain Rich Ingram with 22 and ‘keeper Jamie Walkley with 10, manager double figures, against keen bowling by Tim Clark, (3 for 23 in 10 overs), and Andy Kingston (3 for 27), in their 94 all out off some 38.4 overs.
HICE 95 for7 beat SHCC 94 all out.
Another left-hander, and Club leading run scorer Rich Ingram this year, passed the 700 run mark during his stay at the crease, taking his average to 37.26 for the season.
With just three games left to play, Ingram requires 151 more runs to exceed his best ever season since rejoining his local Club, from Hull Town CC, as his 2011 aggregate was 858 at 57.20.
