Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Seamer & Irton CC 1st XI v Staxton on Sun 23 Apr 2017 at 1.30pm
Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Lost by 95 runs

Match report Staxton won the toss and elected to bat. After losing both openers with the score on 9, the opposition took the game to Seamer with a confident free scoring batting display led by new young Aussie import Rohan Diamond who made 106. His century came off 104 balls in 112 minutes. The 3rd wicket partnership with Chris Dove who made 23, realised 58 runs, and the 5th wicket partnership with Dave Morris who made 26, realised 68 runs. Rob Hargreaves was unbeaten at the end with 27 runs in a final total of 229 after the allotted 45 overs. Captain Kebab was Seamer's most economical bowler with 1 for 22 from 7 overs, and was berated by his team mates for not bringing himself back on to bowl towards the back end of the Staxton innings. Gaz Lawton bagged 4 wickets for 74 off 11 overs including 2 caught and bowleds.
In reply Seamer's batsmen kept up with the required run rate but nobody dug in for a big score. Josh B and Tiff both made 20 and Bakes 23. At 110 for 4 came the turning point of the match when Andy Hargreaves clean bowled 3 of our batsmen in 7 deliveries. Diamond chipped in with another wicket to leave us reeling on 116 for 8. Our new South African import Gert hung around after this for 15 unbeaten and we were eventually all out for 134 after 31.5 overs, and 95 short. Hargreaves had match winning figures of 5 for 23 from 8.5 overs, and opener Crowe chipped in with 2 for 14 from 6 overs.
Not the start Seamer were hoping for from this opening game. was a nice sunny day, the ground looked in good nick, and the wicket played beautifully! A quick turnaround next week boys!
