Richard and Tom have successfully completed the UK CC Level 1 coaching course – WELL DONE (for finding it!)

We have been promised a full set of cricket kit from the Lord’s Taverners (through ECB initiative).¬† This will give us loads of new gear to help with junior cricket and is a great¬† boost for the club.

If you are interested in playing, please let us know. We are looking to start coaching sessions on Sunday mornings 10am to 12pm at the Playing Fields in North Cave from 25th May.

Resuming on 222-5, Ross Taylor (74) and Brendon McCullum (42) took their stand past 100 with a flurry of boundaries, before Panesar accounted for both.

Daniel Vettori fell to put England on the brink, but Tim Southee’s amazing 77 not out off 40 balls held them up.

Ryan Sidebottom finally finished the Kiwis off on 431 to seal a 121-run win.
