Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Seamer & Irton CC 2nd XI v Fylingdales on Sat 28 Jul 2018 at 1.30pm
Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Lost by 7 wkts

Match report Fylingdales won the toss and put us in to bat on this very windy overcast day. Captain for the day Collo opened with Dallen. After playing the 1st Estill over for a maiden, Collo launched the 1st ball of his 2nd over over mid wicket for 6 into the cornfield. Thereafter, it was a cautious start and the score was 19 without loss after 8 overs. A bowling change with Tom Shrimpton replacing Estill brought about the removal of both our men. Collo had his stumps displaced for 16 in the 9th over, and Dallen nicked one into keeper Jamie Agar's gloves in the 11th over. That was 23 for 2. Phil and Sheads dug in, with Phil steering the singles and Sheads finding the boundary to add some respectability to the score. But it was hard going against some tight bowling, and we were 59 for 2 after 20 overs. Tom Shrimpton reaped double delight in the 21st over, when Sheads drove straight into the hands of Barry Heyes at short cover for 18. After hitting a boundary, Hax also drove into the hands of Heyes 3 balls later and it was 63 for 4. After a quick flurry of boundaries from Griff, he became Tom's 5th victim when he cut one into Rob Grove's clutches at gully. It was 81 for 5. Archie came in and defended stoically, but Phil was in confident mood and hit Tom for 6 in the 27th over. Archie steered a single to bring up the 100, but was gone next over when he misjudged an Estill seamer and was bowled. Phil stroked a couple of boundaries before he too fell victim to an Estill seamer for 38, and it was 107 for 7. Josh B came in looking confident, and stroking the ball about guided a couple of 4's while Tuna poached a number of singles. The score had reached 124 in the 34th over when Josh was similarly cleaned up by Estill for 18. DJ got quickly off the mark with a 2 and followed up with a 2 and a 3 in the 35th. Heyes was given a bowl in the 37th over, and Tuna spooned one up in the air to the hands of Chris Shrimpton at cover. The batsmen had crossed and DJ smashed a couple of boundaries to leave us on 146 for 9. The rain then sent the players scurrying off while our men put the covers on. After a 12 minute interval, the match resumed with Estill bowling the 38th over. Only 4 balls were needed with DJ flashing at one and seeing his stumps broken for 20. We were all out for 147. Estill finished with 4 for 25 and Tom Shrimpton 5 for 62.
The sun was out though still windy as Steve Husband and Chris Hurworth went out to bat for them. The match was reduced to 43 overs. Griff started off with a maiden. Hurworth scored 5 from Beaver's 1st over, but was pegged by Griff next over, a wicket maiden and 5 for 1. Heyes started confidently with a couple of 4's in Griff's 3rd over, and Husband got off the mark with a single in the 7th over. Beaver got a wicket in the 8th when Heyes drove a skier out to Josh at extra cover for 14. That was 22 for 2 and looking good for us. Chris Shrimpton came to the middle, and after seeing out a few deliveries, stroked 3 boundaries off Griff's next 2 overs. . He was replaced by Archie, who started well with a couple of maidens, and it was 51 for 2 after 15 overs. All the runs were scored by Shrimpton, and he was particularly savage on Archie's 4th over, the 19th scoring 15 runs. Josh had bowled 2 overs for 8 runs, but was replaced by keeper Collo, with Griff taking the gloves in the 20th over. He struck immediately with Husband cutting one to Tuna in the gully. He had taken 70 minutes to score 6 singles, and it was 82 for 3. Archie was kept on for the 21st over, and Shrimpton promptly hit him for 6 over square leg to bring up his 50. Runs were a plenty now as our bowlers went for 9, 11 and 13 runs per over in quick succession, as Shrimpton and Rob Grove took charge. Suddenly it was 125 for 3 after 24 overs. Beaver was brought back to quell the run charge and in tandem with Collo succeeded for the next 4 overs. But Grove took 9 off Beaver's 3rd over back, the 29th, and the scores were level. Grove then stroked the next delivery from Collo for a single and a 7 wicket win for them. Chris Shrimpton finished unbeaten on 87 with Grove 22 not out.
Fylingdales showed why they are 2nd in the league challenging for promotion with this win. In the end, we were outclassed. Another fine batting display by Phil was the backbone of our innings, a late flurry from DJ and teen scores from 4 other players gave us some respectability, but it was never enough particularly after what they did at their place in June. Having 10 fielders at the start of their innings didn't help matters, and we were further reduced to 9 men after 18 overs. This is one to forget as we move into August and the end of season rundown. UTS!!
