Promotion to Yorkshire Premier League North Secured!
Our 1st XI have sealed promotion to the ECB Yorkshire Premier League North for the 2019 season with 3 league games remaining in 2018. This is an outstanding achievement by the boys and they now seek to do the league and cup double by winning the league title in the coming weeks.
Promotion was sealed with a five wicket victory over Whitkirk at Pryers Cricket Ground, and victory on Monday against Malton & Old Malton could see us clinch the Hunters York & District Senior League title. Moin Ashraf took 5-47, and in the process passed 50 wickets for the season, as the visitors were restricted to 170-6 of which Sean Pickles made 73. Adam Sutcliffe led off the hosts' reply with 70 and despite three wickets from Mark Murphy (3-23) we made it nine wins from the last ten with more than a dozen overs to spare.
Our 2nd XI could also secure promotion in the coming weeks with only 21 points required from their remaining 3 games to guarantee it. Good luck to skipper Jack Spofforth and his team for the rest of the season!
