Pickering 3rd XI v Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Seamer & Irton CC 2nd XI on Sat 06 Jul 2019 at 13.30
Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Won by 6 wkts

Match report Captain Hax won the toss and asked Pickering to bat first on a sunny day with a cool breeze. For the first couple of DJ and Matty overs, John Kinghorn blocked and nudged everything while young George Hodgson scored runs stroking the ball around. The score was 15 in the 7th over when DJ got Hodgson to nick the ball into keeper Bakes's gloves. Then in DJ's next over, the 9th, Isaac Edmond's mis-timed drive cuckooed up to Beaver at mid off for a simple catch, and it was 17 for 2. Graham Jemison joined Kinghorn and the score moved slowly as Jemison got his eye in nudging the odd single. Beaver and Archie replaced DJ and Matty after 12 overs. Kinghorn started to score more freely with boundaries off both our bowlers, and the score moved on to 49 after 20 overs. Beaver's 5th over was a maiden but Archie's 5th over conceded 10 runs. The batsmen's 50 partnership came up in the 26th over when Kinghorn found the boundary off the returning DJ. Beaver kept it tight with 2 more maidens before Jemison hit his first boundary, to take the score to 77 for 2 after 29 overs. The partnership was finally broken as soon as Archie was brought back for his 2nd spell to bowl the 32nd over. With his 1st delivery, he hit Jemison's stumps, and the batsman was gone for 21. The partnership had made 71 runs, it was 88 for 3, and the over was a wicket maiden. Kinghorn brought up his 50 in the next over when he drove Tommy for 4. He had been at the crease for a minute shy of 2 hours. At the end of Archie's next over, the 34th, Kinghorn steered the ball round to Harley Adams at backward square leg and set off for a run. The youngster's throw to the keeper was too quick for namesake Tom Adams backing up and he was run out. That was 97 for 4. Tommy bowled the 35th over, and struck gold when he dislodged Kinghorn's bails, and the opener was gone for 56. That was 99 for 5. Louie Jemison and Graham Newton took the score on to 116 in the 40th over. That's where Newton looped a catch up to Tuna at mid wicket off Archie and they were 6 down. The batsmen were looking for quick runs in the remaining overs and giving their wickets away in the process. Next to go was Matthew Bowes who was given out leg before in Archie's last over and 120 for 7. Matty was brought back for the 44th over and got the wicket of Tom Cleary, with the score on 128. Cleary got an edge into keeper Bakes's gloves, having hit the previous delivery for 4. DJ bowled the last over, and Jemison hit him for 4. But DJ hit back and with his last delivery pegged Andy Bowes's stumps. They ended on 137 for 9 with Jemison 13 not out and DJ had 3 for 36. Archie had earlier finished with 3 for 38 from his 12 overs.
It was still sunny and cool as Archie and Hax strode to the middle after tea. In the 3rd over bowled by Matthew Bowes, Archie hit a boundary and followed up with a 6 to long leg by the pavilion. More boundaries to cover, extra cover, fine leg and backward square followed, and after 9 overs, Archie had 29 of the 34 runs on the board. Hodgson came on to bowl the 11th over and Hax hit a no ball for 4. Archie found another boundary same over and it was 44 for 0. Tony Evans with his away seamers was bowling superbly at the pavilion end with figures of none for 4 from 5 overs. After Hax had stroked the first 2 balls of his 6th over for 2 and 4, he went after the next delivery and the ball spooned up to Cleary at cover for a simple catch. Hax made 12 and it was 50 for 1. Following a Hodgson maiden, it became 50 for 2 as Evans knocked back Boo's stumps for a duck. Sheads came in and went next over, turning Hodgson round the corner and up into the waiting clutches of Evans at short fine leg for a lucky single. The bowling was tight as Bakes looked to consolidate with Evans bowling accurate line and length. Archie was stuck on 33 for several overs as he attempted to play out Evans's final overs. The runs were scored off Hodgson at the other end, as the score moved on to 61 for 2 after 20 overs. Bakes was doing most of the scoring, and Hodgson helped our cause with 5 wides in the 21st over. Archie started scoring again with a drive to the boundary off Hodgson in the 23rd over. Evans finished his spell with a 4th maiden on the trot to complete the 24th over. His figures were 12-6-12-2. New bowler Andy Bowes was despatched to the boundary by both Bakes and Archie in the 26th over, and the score reached 100 in the 28th over. On came Gary Newton for the 29th over, and struck immediately clattering Bakes's stumps with his first delivery. That was 100 for 4 with Bakes making 30, and a partnership worth 49 with Archie. Tuna dug in defending stoutly, and the pair pushed a number of singles. Archie decided it was time to take charge and launched into Bowes's 4th over, the 32nd, scoring 22 runs. His 2nd 4, a drive to wide mid wicket brought him his maiden 50 to much applause from his team mates around the pavilion. A 2 was followed by 2 straight drives for 4 and a cover drive also for 4. To cap it all off, he stroked 2 more boundaries in the next over by Newton to win the match for his side by 6 wickets and a final score of 139 for 4. With an unbeaten score of 75 runs, he was warmly congratulated on reaching the pavilion.
It was Archie's day and a man of the match performance with both bat and ball. Bakes gave good support in a 4th wicket partnership worth 49, and Hax shared an opening partnership of 50 with Archie as well. All our bowlers bowled well with Beaver going for just 2 runs an over and the others for 3 runs an over. Archie and DJ had almost identical figures with 3 wickets each, and praise too for young Harley Adams with his 2nd consecutive run out involvement. This win keeps us handily placed in 3rd position in the league. Not bad for a team that had to have a meeting just before the season started to decide if they were going to continue or withdraw. UTS!!
