The under 17 team has a 15-15 cup final at Billingham on Sunday morning, that is the only junior fixture outstanding.
There are two adult matches on at the main ground this weekend, the superstars otherwise known as the 5th XI are at home on Saturday afternoon and the 3rd XI are at home on Sunday afternoon.
The nets are still available for use.
On Friday 14th October we will have our presentation evening for up to and including under 15 players. There will be free food available and entries for the indoor league will open that evening, so it is worth attending even if you are not expecting an award.

League 1 Table
This league was very close, all the individual matches were won by 20-odd runs, but each team only won 1 match, so the positions were decided by the cricketing version of "goal difference".
Richmondshire A 1 win, + 2 runs
Richmondshire B 1 win, +1 run
Darlington 1 win, - 3 runs
The Richmondshire A and Richmondshire B teams were on paper very evenly matched, though in the head-to head, Richmondshire B beat Richmondshire A. Which team you were in depended on when you could get to the ground after other sporting commitments in the morning.
Within the 10-a-side Richmondshire A v Richmondshire B match, there were four extra players who could not play in the final competing against each other. Jack VanNiekerk won a match ball for the best contribution from this group of four; he scored 0 not out with the bat, got 5 runs for a wicket, another 5 for a run-out and conceded 4 runs whilst bowling to finish with a net score of +6.
League 2 Table
Barnard Castle thumped Masham in the first match, Masham then beat Barton by 6 runs. Barton did very well to only lose by 6 runs in their final match against Barnard Castle
Barnard Castle 2 wins + 42 runs
Masham 1 win, -30 runs
Barton 0 wins -12 runs

(i) Barton do not have a full team, so players from the Richmond squad will play for Barton in each game.
(ii) The Richmond A v Richmond B game will be played as a ten a side game if necessary to give all our players a game.
These are the two Richmond teams selected by John Broderick and Jim While, If these players arrive in good time to start their first match, they will play two league games for these teams and be the team that goes through to the final if they win their mini league.
Richmond B, first game 1.00 pm

To allow Sunday morning footballers to have a chance of participating (I understand Richmond Town U11s are playing at Saltburn), the format will now be as follows:
2 mini-leagues of 3 teams in which each team plays 2 matches, followed by the winners of each league playing a final. The mini-league matches will start at 1.00 pm, there will be an element of seeding to ensure that we do not have three of the four likely strongest teams in the same mini-league. There will be a draw at the start of the tournament, in which the only names in the hat are Darlington, Barnard Castle and Masham. The fixtures will be as follows:
1.00 pm. Richmond B v Drawn Team 1
2.00 pm Richmond A v Richmond B
3.00pm Richmond A v Drawn Team 1
1.00 pm. Drawn Team 2 v Drawn Team 3
2.00 pm Barton v Drawn Team 2
3.00pm Barton v Drawn Team 3
The winners of each league will play in a final at 4.30 pm.

This is the list of players who have not been playing U11 matches and have asked to play at the festival on 11th September. I will add to it as I receive names. Being on this list does not automatically mean you are in a team together, but I will try to ensure that everyone of an appropriate standard gets a game.
Sunday, 21 August 2016
The agreed match start time is 6pm. It is going to be challenging finishing the game before it gets too dark, so please get there as early as you can and don't waste time during the game or between innings.
