Cave Crowned Champions

Posted by Craig on September 6th, 2014

North Cave were today crowned champions of the 2014 HPH York Vale League. Cave started the day with a twelve point lead at the top over Ovington and thirteen points ahead of Bishopthorpe, but had no game today after the withdrawal from the League of Thixendale. However, the heavy rain this afternoon meant Ovington’s match at Kelfield and Bishopthorpe’s tie at Stockton & Hopgrove were both abandoned giving both sides ten points. Cave won the league by two points due to picking up more bonus points in their two defeats.

It has been a great effort by everyone involved in the club this year and congratulations go to all. The trophy will be presented at the League award dinner in York on Saturday 27th September.

Stellings 150 Seals Cave Victory Over Duffield

Posted by Craig on August 30th, 2014

Mike Stellings hit 153 not out to help North Cave to victory in today’s York Vale Division 1 match at home to North Duffield. Duffield won the toss and put Cave into bat on a damp track. Cave took the attack to the Duffield bowling from the start and Yaniv Judah (13) and Charlie Cockin put on 32 before Judah was bowled by Paul Johnson (1 for 80). Then Mike Stellings came to the wicket and he and Cockin built a superb partnership of 184 for the 2nd wicket. Cockin made 79 including 5 sixes and 4 fours, but the innings was dominated by Stellings with 153 not out (11 sixes and 11 fours). James Windeatt had a late cameo with 50 not out (5 sixes and 2 fours) at the end to complete Duffield’s misery. This included 31 off the final over from Johnson. Cave finished on a massive 308 for 2 from their 40 overs. In reply Duffield were never up with the run rate and lost wickets at regular intervals. Paul Johnson (52) anchored the innings, but without support at the other end as James Windeatt (2 for 22), John Buttle (4 for 33) and Rob Page (2 for 25) dismissed 10 man Duffield for 119 to seal an 189 run victory.

Rain Wins Out at Kelfield

Posted by Craig on August 23rd, 2014

The rain eventually won the day in today’s York Vale Division 1 match away at Kelfiled. Kelfield won the toss and batted first. Cave took two early wickets with Mike Stellings (2 for 22) dismissing both openers. Craig Lawson (52) and C. Walker (37) rebuilt the Kelfield innings with a partnership of 64. M. Walker (21) and Neil Atkinson (28) added important runs as John Buttle (4 for 51) took wickets. Kelfield finished their 40 overs on 188 for 8. The Cave reply was interrupted by a lengthy stoppage for rain, which left the wicket damp. The teams decided to give it a go and S. Dunn (3 for 30) and M. Walker (3 for 25) had Cave in trouble at 71 for 6 with only Rob Page (29 not out) holding firm, before further rain left the wicket too wet to continue and the match was abandoned.

Cave Win the GM Cup Final

Posted by Craig on August 17th, 2014

North Cave today won the GM Cup Final played at Acomb with a 6 wicket win over Stockton & Hopgrove. Cave won the toss and put Stockton into bat. Richard Kerrison (40) and T. Williams (30) got Stockton off to a great start putting on 74 for the first wicket. Cave then hit back reducing Stockton to 97 for 7 with John Buttle (10-4-17-3) bowling a great spell and James Windeatt (3 for 51) taking the wickets. Dan Fairclough hit 34 not out supported by L. Marshall (15) to add 47 for the eighth wicket before Rob Page (3 for 18) took late wickets after swapping the Keepers gloves for the ball. Stockton finished on 162 for 9 from their 40 overs. In reply Cave lost Charlie Cockin (5) early, but Yaniv Judah (17) and Mike Stellings (34) steadied the ship adding 55. Two quick wickets from L. Marshall (2 for 39) caused a wobble, but Rob Page (28 not out) and a Captain’s innings of 46 from James Windeatt took Cave to 132 for 4. Page and Will Ferguson (14 not out) saw Cave home with 4 overs to spare.

Cave Cruise to Home Win Against Fulfordgate

Posted by Craig on August 16th, 2014

In today’s York Vale Division 1 match, North Cave cruised to an eight wicket win at home to a weakened Fulfordgate side, without several regulars. Fulfordgate won the toss and batted first on a damp slow track, but their innings never got going against the Cave bowling attack. Only Alan Baldock (27) offered any resistance as Mike Stellings (12-6-15-4) and John Buttle (7.5-3-11-6) ripped through the Fulfordgate batting order. They could only muster 49 all out from 25.5 overs. In reply Charlie Cockin (13) and Yaniv Judah (26 not out) put on 32 for the first wicket and Cave reached their target of 50 for 2 in 9.4 overs.
