Cave Lose Close Fought Final

Posted by Craig on September 14th, 2008

Ben Johnson came out on top in an excellent close fought Final at Acomb. In a game reduced to 32 overs, they won the toss and put Cave into bat. Cave lost regular wickets on a damp pitch with only James Ferguson (32) and Richard Tomlinson (26) putting a score together. For Ben Johnson Thornton (3 for 27), Wragg (1 for 19), Morando (2 for 13) and Snowden (4 for 41) all bowled tightly. In reply the Ben Johnson batsmen put patnerships together to look comfortable at 79 for 3 with Morando leading the way with 27. Then the Cave bowlers hit back with Charlie Cockin taking 3 for 16 and Tom Baxter 4 for 32, but Hill (28 not out) took Ben Johnson to Victory by 2 wickets with 1 over to spare.

Another Weekend Washout

Posted by Craig on September 6th, 2008

Both North Cave CC’s games this weekend have been abandoned due to the heavy rain over the last two days. First our Division 3 game today at Stillingfleet was called off last night with a foot of water on their pitch. Then our Prendergast Trophy Final due to be played tomorrow was abandoned today  with no chance of the pitches at Heworth or Ben Johnson drying out. It is a disappointing end to a frustrating season with seven of our eighteen league games been cancelled. We have finished top of Division 3 though and so will be promoted to Division 2 for next season.

Final Abandoned for Rain

Posted by Craig on September 1st, 2008

The Prendergast Memorial Trophy Final was abandoned with 10 overs remaining and the game poised for an exciting finish. North Cave batted first in a game reduced to 32 overs per side and got off to a good start with Richard Tomlinson (28) and Richard Moore (39) putting on 73 for the first wicket. Cave then collapsed losing 6 quick wickets with the bowling of Merandu (3 for 17) and Carlton (4 for 28). They recovered to 140 for 9 thanks to 32 not out from John Buttle. In reply Ben Johnson made good progress towards their target with D. Lacey (34) and M. Reynolds (33 not out) providing the runs. Then the rain came and the umpires called a halt to proceedings. The match will now be replayed next Sunday.

North Cave Confirm Division 3 Title

Posted by Craig on August 30th, 2008

Nine man North Cave produced a solid all round performance to win this game by 9 wickets, which confirmed them as York Vale League Division 3 Champions. Cave won the toss and put Thorpe Willoughby into bat. They made slow progress against some tight bowling from John Buttle (4 for 31 from 15 overs) and Jonathan Tomlinson (0 for 33 from 16 overs). The main partnership for Thorpe Willoughby was from Nad Shefta (38) and R. Powell (25 not out) who added 67 for the 4th wicket. In reply John Backhouse (49 not out) and Craig Hewson (16) put on 53 for the first wicket and then Backhouse and Chris Carr (33 not out) saw Cave home with five overs to spare. Cave will now be looking for the double as they are involved in the Prendergast Memorial Trophy Final against Ben Johnson at Woodhouse Grange tomorrow 2pm start.

Weekend Washout

Posted by Craig on August 24th, 2008

Both games this weekend were lost to the weather. First on Saturday the home game with Malton and Old Malton was postponed with the pitch too wet and unfit for play. Then the Prendergast Trophy Final due to be played today against Ben Johnson at Woodhouse Grange was postponed yesterday as the Grange pitch was waterlogged following this weeks heavy rain. The Final will now be replayed next Sunday the 31st August with the venue to be decided.
