Cricket festival

Well done Darlington on their win in the under-11 cricket festival, but but we saved the best game until last when the Richmondshire A vs Richmondshire B game went down to the very last ball.
Great season for the under-11s!

Under-11 cricket festival

The format for Sunday is as follows:

4 ten-a-side teams - 2 x Richmondshire, Barnard Castle and Darlington

There will be six games in all, with two games in progress at the same time. It will be usual pairs rules, with each game consisting of ten overs per side, so that means each pair will face two overs and bowlers will get one over each, with one bowler getting an extra over.

We think each game will last for 75 minutes so starting at 1pm we expect to be finished by 6pm.

The trophy will be won by the team at the top of the league, with net run rate being used in case of a tie.

Under-11 inter-team game

Please see below for tomorrow’s teams. Sorry for the delay in getting these sorted - what a nightmare it’s been! You’ll notice a few illegal players in the line ups - it’s the best I can do! Here are the adapted rules!
1. Neither wicketkeeper will bat for their team, only field (and not bowl).
2. The Willow Whackers will field first so that Cameron can get off to U13s training at 6.30 (thanks for helping us out Cam!)
3. Each team’s last pair will consist of a batter who hasn’t yet batted (and will therefore bat for all 4 overs) and 2 other batters - both who will bat for 2 of the final 4 overs. 1 batter will be chosen by the captain of the batting side and the other will be chosen by the captain of the bowling side.
4. Everyone must bowl at least two overs - with two fielders bowling three overs.
5. Other than that it’s a normal 16 over pairs game!!!

Please arrive ready to begin at 5.30pm prompt!

Training for all junuior age groups this week will be at the club.

Although there will be a U11 game taking place at the club on Friday night, there will still be sufficient coaches and space for those not involved in the game.

U13 game v Seaton Carew, match report

After losing the toss Seaton Carew elected to bat on a green and damp wicket.

With very tight bowling from all our bowlers, backed up with some good fielding, Seaton Carew could only get to 63-6 from their 20 overs, with the pick of the bowlers being Fin Clarke 3-0-11-1, Kai York 3-0-10-2 and with excellent figures Cameron Clarke 3-0-3-3.

In reply we lost a quick wicket, then Fin Clarke finishing on 20 not out and Joe Syddall retiring on 32 steadied the ship with Richmondshire winning in the 13th over by 8 wickets. 66-1 from 12.3 overs.

Well done to everyone that played, you all played a part in the win.

Season long raffle

To anyone that has tickets for the club's season long raffle, a reminder that the stubs and the money need to be handed in in time for inclusion in the draw on 8th September, when the last 1st XI game of the season is played.

If you cannot find a Team Manager or committee member to hand them in to, put them in the little post box at the right hand end of the bar in the clubhouse.

NYACC U13s vs Sedgefield

 After losing the toss Richmondshire were put into bat, after gifted some early wickets we found ourselves 17-4. Before Jake Percival who retired on 31 inc 2 sixes and debutant Joseph White 14 made a 7th wicket stand to give Richmond some hope along with a quick fire 8 from Cameron Clarke Richmondshire made 87 for 9.

In the field we got a early wicket with a excellent catch by Joseph White off the bowling of Will Sharp. And a run out by Cameron gave us hope, but with a number of catches been dropped our tight bowling wasn't enough to win us the game. Sedgefield winning by 8 wickets although the game was closer than it sounds.
