three defeats on Saturday but seconds win on Monday

Yorkshire Premier League North Division One West

South Milford I 229-8 Selby I 216-9

Selby first team produced a much improved batting performance on Saturday but it was not enough to prevent a 13 run defeat to South Milford in a high scoring game at Sandhill Lane.

Skipper Gareth Roberts won the toss and asked the visitors to bat first and openers Charlie Bramley and Harry Jackson gave them a solid start against some tight bowling from Roberts and Tom Shepherd. An opening partnership of 49 was ended when Bramley (22) was run out but Jackson kept the scoreboard ticking over with some stylish batting. Roberts had Will Hodgkiss caught by Harvey Johnson and he finished with 1-29 from his 13 overs. Lee Wild joined the attack and he had Jackson (41) caught by Shepherd and he went on to take 3-36 as Selby looked to be getting on top as South Milford slipped to 139-7. Jack Hebden joined Joe Raynor at the crease and they turned the game round with an eighth wicket partnership of 75 with Hebden producing some big hitting in a powerful knock. Hebden fired 5 fours and 4 huge sixes in his quickfire 58 before he was bowled by Alex Bowden and Raynor finished unbeaten on 29 as the visitors closed on a useful 229-8.

In reply Selby lost an early wicket when Joe Raynor had Alex Bowden superbly caught at slip by Charlie Bramley but Rob Scarr and Lee Wild gradually got the innings back on track with a second wicket partnership of 58. Jack Hebden made the breakthrough when he trapped Scarr (27) leg before then bowled Wild (24) to reduce the home side to 82-3. Will Hodgkiss (2-44) then dismissed Charlie Baird and Joe Bugg to leave Selby struggling on 91-5. Glen Crouch hit a quick 14 but at 101-6 the visitors looked to be taking command of the game. Matt Hoyle joined Harvey Johnson and they both batted well to add 51 for the seventh wicket before Johnson was bowled for 37, which included 2 fours and 3 sixes. Skipper Harry Jackson joined the attack to have Tom Shepherd neatly caught by Raynor but James Dugher joined Hoyle and they kept Selby in with a chance of winning with a ninth wicket partnership of 48. Dugher (9) was run out in the 49th over and Hoyle finished unbeaten on 58 as Selby closed on 216-9 which earned them 4 batting points.

Yorkshire Premier League North Division Three West

Selby II 155 Goole II 157-3

In Division Three Selby second team’s revival came to an end when they travelled to old rivals Goole and went down to a seven wicket defeat.

The home side won the toss and asked Selby to bat first and they made a reasonable start with an opening partnership of 32 between Graham Phillips and Alex Hornostaj. After the dismissal of Phillips (19) the visitors slipped to 41-3 with Henry Appleby taking 3-15 but Harry Huddlestone (25) steadied the ship with a solid knock. Jacob Kennedy bowled well to take 4-36 as Selby struggled to 76-6 but Kayden Lane joined Luke Berzins and a seventh wicket partnership of 46 kept the visitors in the game. Craig Chafer bowled Lane (16) but Berzins smashed 7 fours and a six to finish unbeaten on exactly 50 as Selby were bowled out for 155 in the 38th over.

Berzins was soon in the action when Goole replied when he bowled Sam Coppins in the first over but Ciaran Smith and Craig Chafer then frustrated the Selby attack. An 83 run partnership for the second wicket put the home side in a commanding position but it was ended by Jack Huddlestone when he had Chafer (38) caught behind by brother Harry. Will O’Donnell (28) gave Smith good support until he was bowled by Rhys Roddick but Smith comfortably guided Goole home in the 32nd over as he finished unbeaten on 73.

York Vale League Division Two

Selby IV 111 Wheldrake II 114-1

A young Selby fourth team had a tough afternoon on Saturday when they went down to a nine wicket defeat to Wheldrake II at Sandhill Lane.

Batting first after losing the toss Selby lost early wickets and never really recovered with Isaac Leung (26) holding the early part of the innings together. The home side struggled to 59-7 with Karthikeyan Sathiyaseelan taking 5-25 but there was some late resistance from Alfie Laverack who hit 5 fours in a quick 40 and he lifted Selby to 111 all out.

Wheldrake had few problems when they replied and the young Selby bowlers had to work hard against some powerful batting. Skipper Chris Moore eventually took a wicket with the total on 110 when he trapped Sanket Turang (43) leg before but the visitors knocked the runs off in the 23rd over with Praful unbeaten on 54.

Yorkshire Premier League North Division Three

Saxton I 70, Selby II 73-4

With the first team game at Dringhouses washed out on Monday it was all eyes on the second team game at Sandhill Lane and they bounced back from Saturday’s defeat with a six wicket win over high flying Saxton.

Skipper Gareth Harvey won the vital toss and asked the visitors to bat first and it proved to be a good decision as wickets were soon falling with Luke Berzins removing both openers. Wickets fell at the other end with Kayden Lane taking 2-14 from his 7 over spell. Berzins finished with 3-15 from his 10 overs as Saxton crashed to 22-5. Caspar Gray (2-25) and Jack Huddlestone (1-8) kept up the pressure and only some late resistance from Venkat Musku (12) and Steve Hutton (13) enabled the visitors to reach 70 all out with the last wicket taken by spinner Mark Hope.

Chasing the small total openers Graham Phillips and Jack Huddlestone added 29 for the first wicket before Phillips (11) was bowled by Alex Walker and he soon removed Isaac Leung to leave Selby on 29-2. Huddlestone kept Selby on top with some stylish batting and he had good support from Alex Hornostaj, Zac Buttle and Luke Berzins as Selby knocked the runs off in the 15th over with Huddlestone finishing unbeaten on 40.
