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.
