very little play

It was a frustrating Saturday afternoon for Selby Cricket Club with little or no play possible as the wet summer continues.

The first team game in Division One West at Sandhill Lane against Osbaldwick was eventually called off with rain arriving half an hour before the start time of 12.00. After a break in the weather a 1.15 start was scheduled but more rain arrived prompting a very early tea but persistent rain meant no play was possible. Both teams pick up four points and Selby travel to Easingwold II on Saturday.

In Division Three the second team did manage to start at Hemingbrough and after skipper Gareth Harvey won the toss he asked the home side to bat first and there was there was an early wicket for Luke Berzins. Left arm pace bowler Richard Waterton grabbed a couple of wickets before the rain ended proceedings in the 10th over with Hemingbrough on 20-3. Selby are at home to Whitkirk II on Saturday.

In the York Vale League there was no play possible for Selby third team at South Cave & Brantingham and the fourth team at home to Hemingbrough II.
