Under 11 Match Report

From our Barton based correspondent:

U11 vs Barnard Castle cup game - away at Barnard Castle

Barnard Castle won the toss and elected to bat.  Yet again our bowling and fielding proved to be our strong point with excellent bowling from everyone and fantastic wicket keeping from Tom Wooff.  The first two bowlers - Max Percival & Tom Van Niekirk - only going for 10 runs. Will Shaeffer & Owen Wetherill kept the score low too with Owen getting the first wicket of the day, 2-0-7-1.  The next four overs saw two more wickets fall - a fantastic run out and a catch by Tom Van Niekirk. More wickets fell in the next three overs, Andrew Ralph and Jake Percival both having figures 3-1-7-1.  Leaving Barnard Castle restricted to 266 for 6 (236 net). 

Jake & Tom Van Niekirk opened the batting and quickly knocked up a score of 241-0, Jake hitting three 4's to finish on top score of 16.  Jack Van Niekirk and Owen Wetherill kept the score ticking over to finish 253-1 at the end of their four overs.  Next came Andrew Ralph and Will Shaeffer, both played defensively only losing 1 wicket in their overs.  Freddie and Max Dale worked hard to keep the runs coming with Max hitting a fantastic 4, unfortunately for them they faced Barnard Castle's best bowlers and conceded 3 wickets.  The final pair of Tom Wooff and Max Percival continued to work well together, Max hitting a 4 and Tom managing to get dropped THREE times during his innings!
Richmondshire finishing on 294-6 (264 net), winning by 28 runs.


Yet again, a fantastic team effort from everyone.  Well done!  Many thanks to Louise Wooff who arranged the game in Darren's absence and Jim for coming along to umpire. 

Training Monday 21st August

Weather dependent, this will now be on, from 6.30 to 8.00.

Regular under 11 match players are welcome to join in and boost the numbers.

Training Friday 18th August

Assuming the weather is OK, training will be at the club at the far side of the field.

This is because the Richmond Mavericks will be completing a re-arranged fixture on a wicket near the clubhouse. The Mavericks play in the Wensleydale Evening League, they include Mike Layfield and some others of a lower ability level, it could be fun to watch.

Another trophy for the under 17 team

Richmondshire batted first and scored 158 for 3 off 20 overs, with Sam Winter scoring 40 and Tom Dowson retiring on 50.

The Under 9s bring home the Phil Fisher Cup to Richmondshire!


The Hambleton League’s Phil Fisher Cup - Under 9s Finals Day
With our Under 9s having won the north section league last week, they progressed to the finals day on Sunday.  Initially, two semi-finals involved the 4 teams who had finished in the top two positions in their respective leagues.  The winning teams then met in the final to decide who won the Phil Fisher Cup – the ultimate in under 9 silverware!

Richmondshire 296-1 (291 net) beat Thirsk 241-10 (191 net) by 100 runs!
Our match report from the semi-final against Thirsk is brought to you by James Cox.

Thirsk won the toss and chose to bowl first.

Richmondshire got off to a defensive start with Isaac Bottomley and Raam Raj only scoring one run between them. Our loyal supporters thought we would be going home early!  However, our second pair Eddy Player and James Cox really got us going. Eddy scoring a very pleasing 15 runs and James backing him up with 3. We were all very proud of Eddy’s performance as an injury after training on Friday could have stopped him playing.

Our third pair Max Percival and Tom Bromirskyj carried on the run scoring with 7 between them. They have been a solid pairing this season.  Our final pair Joseph White and Jack Platt added to the brilliance of the batting from Richmondshire. Joseph showed another strong performance and got a whopping 16 runs.  Jack and Joseph have enjoyed themselves at the crease this season. Jack Platt scored a decent amount of 9 runs securing our total of 291.

Richmondshire were very determined in the field, desperate to put everything we learnt in training into good use. We took 10 wickets from them. Our supporters were ecstatic, and even Mike smiled!! Thirsk didn’t stand a chance against our fast bowlers with a couple of near miss injuries taking place. This match was a very balanced performance with excellent fielding, bowling and batting shown. We then had to watch and wait to see who we would face in the final…

Phil Fisher Cup Final
Richmondshire 276-6 (246 net) beat North Stainley 279-7 (244 net) by 2 runs!
Our match report from the final is brought to you by Edward Player.

North Stainley won the toss and chose to field first.
First the usual batting pair of Raam and Issac got us off to a steady start with 20 runs off the first four overs without the loss of a wicket.  Issac with 6 runs and Raam with 4, made up of one boundary each and creating a brilliant lead for the second pair.
Edward and James came up against some good bowling from North Stainley but battled well and added 7 runs to the total. Unfortunately, they conceded a wicket but there was still solid defensive batting from the pair that really has got going this season.
The next two batters, Tom and Max, had a good innings and put another 12 runs to the total, just losing 2 wickets.  As well as hitting a boundary, they were up against a few good bowlers but still managed to hit 4 (Tom) and 8 (Max).
Joseph with 14 runs and Jack with 7, finished off the innings with some good shots. The pair hit 21 losing 3 wickets but got a good boundary that went for a 4 from Joseph. The pair have been brilliant this season with their batting at the crease.
It was now Richmondshire's turn to field, defending a score of 246 and then the drama really started....
Raam was first to bowl and created very few opportunities for North Stainley to score a high number of runs.  Then, the wicket taking began!  First was Joseph, then Edward.  Issac followed his own advice by getting another.  James' solid bowling continued the run of wickets nicely.  Next Tom ran out North Stainley's famous slogger (Kitty) in a stroke of genius.  Jack with some tremendous bowling got the team yet another one.
With North Stainley needing 10 runs to win, all the tension rested on Max's shoulders as he took the final over. One of the fastest bowlers in the world, he didn't disappoint, leaving North Stainley needing 4 runs off the last ball. Max held his nerve and with some calm fielding only 1 run was scored.
Richmondshire took the trophy and the glory! (Most spectators just took a huge sigh of relief!)
Well done Richmondshire, a much deserved win and a fantastic end to a dream season!
