Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Lost by 7 wkts

Match report Seamer won the toss and elected to bat first. The move paid dividends as they raced to 70-1 in the 5 over powerplay against the Heslerton pace attack. Josh B smashed the ball to all parts of the ground in making 41 off just 23 balls. He fell on the last ball of the 5th over and the game swung dramatically. Harrison perished for 26 off 21 balls, well caught in the deep by Matty Webster and the much talented middle order struggled against Adam Spaven, who responded well after the early onslaught to take 4 wickets, while skipper Kristian Wilkinson and Tom Bumby both claimed 2 wickets each. A slide from 70-1 to 86-6 after 10 overs put Heslerton in control of the game, but Seamer captain Babb and youngster Archie put together an 8th wicket partnership of 31 to steer their side to a competetive 130-9 off their 15 overs.
Seamer went in search of early wickets and both Gaz L and Mitch produced lively, yet controlled spells to reduce Heslerton to 15-2. Rob Middlewood entered the fray at no. 3 and looked good from ball one. Partnered by captain Wilkinson, the pair slowly recovered and tried to up the tempo as the Seamer spin duo of Shish and Harrison bowled tidily, backed up by some excellent fielding. Middlewood reached his half-century before being caught at the wicket for a well crafted 59 off 51 balls as the pair put on 72. Bumby joined Wilkinson, yet 38 were still needed from the final 3 overs. Heslerton needed a couple of big overs and they found them by targeting the popular bank. With 7 runs required off the final over, Heslerton got home with just 3 balls remaining. Wilkinson playing the captain's innings finishing with 40 not out from 46 balls, and Bumby 22 not out off just 14 balls.
Both captains were presented with trophies by Sharon Blackstone, joint owner of long time league sponsors Andy Hire Sales & Service Ltd, with Wilkinson lifting the Linda Goulding Memorial Cup as Heslerton made it 3 wins in the past 4 years in the prestigious competition.
