Cave Continue Push for Promotion

Posted by Craig on August 29th, 2009

North Cave continued their push for promotion from Division 2 of the York Vale League with a 132 run victory at home to Askham Bryan. North Cave won the toss and batted first. They lost opener John Backhouse (5) early, but then Craig Hewson (51) and Rob Page (96) steered Cave to 147 before the next wicket fell. Page agonisingly falling 4 runs short of a century when he was caught on the boundary by I. Hall. A late cameo of 40 not out from Chris Carr took Cave to 219 for 5 from their 40 overs. M. Grewer (4 for 84) and P. Wood (1 for 44) were the pick of the Askham Bryan bowlers. In reply John Buttle (1 for 9) and Karl Youngman (2 for 27) bowled tight opening spells to stifle the Askham innings. Only M. Grewer (21) and P. wood (28), who put on 46 for the 4th wicket, offered resistance before Charlie Cockin (3 for 16) and Craig Hewson (3 for 10) ripped through the lower middle order backed up by some excellent catching. Askham were finally dismissed for 87 and so Cave won by 132 runs and claimed maximum points.
