Snainton v Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Seamer & Irton CC 2nd XI (Evening) on Tue 30 May 2017 at 6.15pm
Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Won by 21 runs

Match report Captain DJ won the toss and elected to bat. Connor wasted no time by smashing the 1st ball of the match bowled by Ben Norman through the gully for 4. With 4 byes conceded, the score at the end of the over was 12 for 0. Former Brompton player Ashley Mudd was brought on at the bottom end and grabbed 2 wickets with his medium swingers. Firstly, Connor having a go skied one to mid wicket for Norman to take a comfortable catch. 2 balls later, Davy G was walking after he clipped one into the waiting hands of Mike Davies also at mid wicket. That was 16 for 2. Norman's 2nd over started well for us with Bakes smacking a square drive for 4 through backward point, and following up next ball with a turn and swivel down to long leg for 6. That was 27 for 2 after 3 overs. Bakes then got at Mudd 4th over hooking him to the square leg boundary, and firmly driving him through the covers for 4. That was 37 for 2 at the end of the over. Norman's 3rd over produced a wicket. After Bakes had hammered a delivery to mid wicket for 4, he played all round the next ball and was comprehensibly bowled. Over 6 and Jake got in on the act with a drive to the long off boundary, but Mudd got him last ball with a tickle into keeper Paul Nicholson's gloves, and 50 for 4. Hax kept the momentum going with another boundary off new bowler Kyle Jackson in the 7th. After steering a 2 and a 1, Mudd then cleaned our Rob up in the 8th to leave us on 60 for 5. In the 9th over, Hax pulled Jackson down to the long leg boundary. Mike Kipling came on next over and reaped double delight when he hit Hax's stumps with a slower 2nd ball, and Archie trying to keep the scoreboard moving holed out to Davies at mid wicket off the last ball. That was 72 for 7. In the 11th over, young Tommy Greenwood played a lovely forward shot off his legs to the square leg boundary, and Beaver was pegged by Kipling in the 12th. Father James joined his son at the wicket and hoisted a 6 over mid wicket a few balls later followed by a 2 into the vacant outfield. Tommy kept the scoreboard ticking in the 13th over but James got a tickle to their keeper off Jackson. Captain DJ came in last and steered a couple of 2's to leave us on 96 for 9. Norman came back and bowled a good tight last over conceding 4 runs to leave us on 100 for 9 at close of innings. Tommy was unbeaten with 13 and earlier Bakes had made 24 and Hax 17. Their best bowler was Kipling with 3 for 9 from 2 overs and Mudd finished with 4 for 26 from 4 overs.
Snainton had 10 batting men and opened up with bowlers Kipling and Norman. DJ bowled a tight 1st over conceding just 1 run, and Beaver likewise at the bottom end conceding 4 runs off his 1st over. 2 more tight overs were bowled with Beaver getting the breakthrough in the 4th. Kipling hitting one across to Archie at mid wicket for a comfortable catch, and 10 for 1. After surviving an early scare, Mike Davies embedded himself in and stroked DJ to the square leg boundary in the 5th over. Norman then leg glanced Beaver down to the fine leg boundary and with singles, 2's and a couple of wides, the score at the end of the over was 29 for 1. DJ bowled another tight over, his last for 1 run. Connor was introduced into the attack, and after Norman had pulled one to the square leg boundary, he played all around the next one and saw his stumps shattered for 20 runs. That was 38 for 2 after 8 overs. Hax came on for the next over, conceding 3 runs and 2 wides, but Nicholson dabbed the last delivery into the gully where our Jakey diving forward took a low catch to dismiss him. That was 43 for 3. The experienced Ashley Mudd then came to the crease, and off Connor's next over drove boundary shots to cover and extra cover. Hax and Connor then bowled a tidy over each conceding few runs, and Snainton were in trouble at 60 for 3 with 3 overs left. Their batsmen were wanting boundaries but could only muster singles and 2's. This left them needing 29 off the last Connor over. Helped by 2 wides, they could only muster 8 runs and finished well short on 79 for 3. Davies finished unbeaten on 23 with Mudd on 17. 3 of our 4 bowlers finished with a wicket apiece and respectable figures, with DJ conceding just 11 runs off his 4 overs.
This was in the end an easy victory achieved by better quality bowling, more experienced heads, and a man advantage. Their batsmen got bogged down as the required run rate increased with each over. So the momentum continues. Bring on Staxton B!!
