Under 17s win NYSD Junior Cup by 96 runs

This was the second trophy opportunity of the season for the under 17s and it was taken well. Despite the fast outfield, the Richmondshire score of 183 for 5 was always going to be a stiff target. James Kelly and Tom Spensley (who the umpires decided was man of the match) batted conventionally, whereas Gary Walker's 45 off 14 balls was brutal, three of his sixes cleared the netting on the Victoria Road side of the ground.

Early wickets meant that Marton were never going to get near the total and they were bowled out inside the 20 overs for 87.
