Gilberdyke Pre-Season Friendly

Posted by Craig on April 29th, 2017

After a difficult winter, North Cave got their 2017 season underway with a pre-season friendly today at home to Gilberdyke. Cave have dropped down to the York Senior League Division 4 for this year and today was a free week. Gilberdyke won the toss and put Cave in to bat in a 25-over match. Cave got off to a steady start with Craig Hewson (38 Retired) and Pete Renboize (11) putting on 23 for the first wicket before Renboize was bowled by E. Umbo. Charlie Cockin made 12 and Martin Sutcliffe 16 as Cave progressed to 92 for 3. Hewson Retired after 15 overs and Damian Sharp took over scoring 11. John Backhouse (9 Retired) and Ed Sheffield (10 Retired) helped Cave to 128 for 5 after 25 overs. In reply Gilberdyke openers M. Eastwood (10) and D. Mell (11) added 22 before falling to Cave opening bowlers Pete Pearson (1 for 16) and Karl Youngman (1 for 32). The match winning partnership came from T. Bodycombe (54 Retired) and N. Creaser (37 Retired) who took Gilberdyke to the brink of victory. After they both retired John Buttle (2 for 22) and Ed Sheffield (2 for 15) caused a collapse before M. Eastwood came back in and hit the winning runs with 2 balls to spare. It was a good workout, with everyone taking part, before the start of the League campaign next Saturday away at Hessle.
