Cayton 2nd XI v Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Seamer & Irton CC 2nd XI on Sat 11 May 2019 at 13.30
Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Lost by 86 runs

Match report Cayton won the toss and decided to bat on a nice wicket in overcast conditions. They got off to a fairly slow start and were 33 for 2 after 12 overs, with Matty Walters getting both wickets, the 2nd a juggling catch by Tiff behind the sticks. Opener Dave Walker and 14 year old Toby Jones shared in a 3rd wicket partnership of 69 runs. It ended with the score on 100 when Jones nicked a catch to keeper Tiff for 25 off Sheads. Walker notched up his 50 in 94 minutes but 7 minutes later was cleaned up by Sheads going for a big drive for 58. That was 107 for 4 in the 30th over. Ward and Pettitt took the score to 133 before Dave trapped Ward lbw for 19. Daz Jones chipped in with 19 taking the score to 173 before also nicking a catch to Tiff off Matty Walters. Lee Pettitt kept the score moving to finish unbeaten on 41 with a final score of 199 for 7. Matty Walters bagged 4 wickets for 50 in 10 overs and Sheads chipped in with 2 wickets for 20 off 5 overs.
In bright sunny conditions, Seamer got off to a bad start with captain Dave holing out at point for a duck in the 2nd over. Tiff punched 3 quick boundaries before Archie's stubborn resistance crumbled when Glave trapped him lbw for a single. That was 27 for 2 in the 9th over. Sheads and Tiff added 21 before Tiff's mis-timed drive found Pettitt at mid on for 27. That was 48 for 3, and it soon became 49 for 4 when Sheads was caught also off Glave. Young Tommy however was in confident mood and prepared to take the game to Cayton. He wasted no time, found the boundary twice and kept the score moving with quick singles and two's. Unfortunately, he couldn't find any partners to stay with him in the middle, and it quickly became a one man show. The middle and late order disintigrated, until Matty Walters joined him on 67 for 8. The young pair put on a 30 run partnership which ended when Tommy was bowled for 37, his highest ever Saturday score. Doc and Matty held firm for 15 minutes with 5 wides giving us a 2nd batting point. Matty was bowled for 8 and we were all out for 113. Glave was the chief destroyer with 5 wickets for 13 runs in 10 overs, and Daz Jones took 3 for 28 off 12 overs.
Cayton were stronger all round in batting and bowling and deserved the win. We could not match them in terms of application and skill, and in some cases, patience. The plus points for us were Tommy and Tiff's batting, and young Matty's bowling. His opening spell of 2 for 17 off 6 overs was highly commendable, though he probably suffered a bit in his shorter 2nd spell when Cayton were going for the runs attacking all the bowlers. So it's back to the drawing board, and hopefully with more availability, we can field a stronger team for our next match. UTS!!
