Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Seamer & Irton CC 1st XI v Cayton 1st XI on Sat 25 May 2019 at 13.30
Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Lost by 26 runs

Match report Cayton won the toss and decided to bat. The opening pair Dennis and Walker put on a partnership of 32 in 8 overs. It ended when Gaz L sent Dennis's middle peg cartwheeling out of the ground for 21. In the same over, Jennison drove into the waiting hands of Jenx at point. 6 overs and 6 runs later, Gaz struck again running forward and diving low to hold on to a return catch from Vicary. That was 38 for 3, and in the next over Babb removed Holden's leg stump for a golden. Opener Walker and Captain Sixsmith then moved the score on to 60 in the 22nd over before Jimmy trapped Walker lbw for 24. Sixsmith and Pickard then produced a partnership taking the score to 94 in 13 overs. That's when the umpire raised his finger again to an Archie appeal and Pickard was removed for 20. Sixsmith then found an ally in Ward and the score moved quite rapidly to 145 in the 43rd over. Babb bowled Ward and the partnership had realised 51 runs. Next over and the batsmen went for a quick single off Gaz's bowling. But Gaz ran down the track picked up the ball and broke the stumps before Pennock could get in. That was 153 for 8. Sixsmith's innings came to an end in the last over when he was pegged by Babb for 60. The Cayton innings closed on 156 for 9, with Gaz and Babb finishing with 3 wickets apiece.
It was a lot cooler and overcast when Dave and Jenx went out to bat. Dave quickly played 2 offside boundaries before nicking one into the keeper's gloves off Ward in the 2nd over. Jenx stroked 3 consecutive boundaries, and helped by Chaddy took the score to 35 in the 9th over, before he was pegged by Pickard for 15. Liam stroked 2 boundaries then had his stumps broken by Ward soon after, and it was 52 for 3. Then Chaddy was lbw to Pickard in the next over for 20, and that was 52 for 4. The wickets kept falling. Tiff was bowled by Ward for 0, and Shish was caught by Dennis off Pickard for 9 in the 19th over. That was 61 for 6. Josh B had come in earlier and was determined to hold the innings together. He played the anchor role, until he'd got his eye in, then proceeded to take the game to Cayton with a series of flashing drives. Meanwhile, Gaz L was given out lbw with the score on 72. Josh built up a score of 24 of which 20 were in boundaries, and partner Babb hit a 6 and a 4 to take the score to 100. That's when Babb found the waiting hands of former player Pearson off the bowling of Pickard. Archie dug in defensively while Josh scored the runs. This partnership took the score up to within shouting distance of the target, but Josh's cavalier approach eventually brought about his downfall. He sent a skier to Vicary at mid wicket off Sixsmith for a gallant 43, and it was 128 for 9 in the 36th over. Archie was bowled by Sixsmith in the 38th over and we were all out for 130 and a 26 run defeat. It was light rain and wind as the players came off the field. Pickard was their best bowler with 5 for 33 from 12 overs, and Ward had 3 for 28 also from 12.
We are still looking for our first win of the season, and have a great chance of that when newly promoted Brompton come to visit on Monday. In their ranks is current evening player Anosh who will be looking to put one over his buddies.
