three wins on Saturday but fourths go down to a narrow defeat on Sunday

Yorkshire Premier League North Division One West

Heslington I 150, Selby I 151-6

Selby first team returned to winning ways on Saturday when a good all round team performance earned them a four wicket win at Heslington.

Batting first the York side made a steady start with openers Will Phelps and Louis Thomas putting on 38 for the first wicket before Tom Shepherd had Thomas (12) caught behind by Harry Huddlestone. James Dugher then had Toby Bashworth caught by Alex Bowden but the introduction of Lee Wild and Jack Huddlestone slowed down the run rate and wickets began to fall. Huddlestone had Phelps (29) neatly caught by Rob Scarr as run scoring dried up with Wild taking 1-23 from his 13 accurate overs. Huddlestone kept things tight at the other end and he finished with the impressive figures of 3-5 from his 7 overs as the home side struggled to 113-9. There was a late revival from Heslington when the last pair of Rich Wells (22*) and Yasintha Dissanayake added 37 for the last wicket but their resistance was ended by Charlie Baird (4-31) when he bowled Dissanayake (18) in the 48th over to leave them all out for 150.

In reply Selby also made a decent start with Alex Bowden and Matt Hoyle soon scoring quickly with Bowden firing 4 fours and a six in a rapid 28 before Ryan Thompson had him caught by Thomas. Dissanayake then dismissed Hoyle (13) to reduce the visitors to 48-2 but Rob Scarr kept the innings on track. Dissanayake (3-35) then struck twice to dismiss Baird and Joe Bugg and when spinner Tim Owen had Scarr (16) caught in the deep by Thompson Selby were in a little bit of trouble on 77-5. The experienced Lee Wild steadied the ship and with good support from Harry Huddlestone they got Selby back in control with a sixth wicket partnership of 55. Charlie Wells did have Huddlestone (18) caught by Wijesinghe but Wild finished unbeaten on 38 as Selby reached the victory target in the 31st over and a welcome 10 points.

In Division Three Selby second team’s revival continued with a 76 run win over South Milford II at Sandhill Lane with the highlight being a big century from opener Graham Phillips.

In an eventful final over Aaron Hudson ended Phillips impressive innings when he was caught by Liam Barlow for 137, which included 16 fours and 3 sixes, Hudson (3-69) then picked up a hat trick when he dismissed Luke Berzins and Alex Hornostaj with his next two balls as Selby closed on 231-4 with Matty Clark finishing unbeaten on 19.

Chasing the big total the South Milford innings was dominated by opener Andy Radi but wickets fell at the other end with Luke Berzins, Caspar Gray and Kayden Lane (3-20) all bowling well. The visitors reached 48-2 at the halfway stage and never really threatened Selby’s total but Radi made the bowlers work hard and he had good support from Tom Richardson (22). There was a return to action for pace bowler Richard Waterton and he had Radi caught by Zac Buttle in the 31st over for a classy 72, which included ten boundaries. The visitors eventually closed on a respectable 155-8 to give Selby another 10 points which lifts them to fourth in the table.
