25-26 April Results

1st XI v Redcar (a) - No Result

The 1sts had to settle for a no-result from the trek to Redcar on Saturday. After restricting Redcar to just 121-8 from their maximum 50 overs, Richmondshire had just 13 overs to chase the total because of rain reduction, and were left stranded on 104-7.

2nd XI v Saltburn (h) - Winning Draw

Richmondshire took a winning draw after amassing 278-2 declared from 48 overs, Mike Fleming making 150 from 148 deliveries. Despite 4 wickets for Joe Shields, Richmond couldn't bowl Saltburn out in the rain-adjusted 35 over timeframe and the visitors closed on 190-6, still some way short of the target.

3rd XI v Middlesbrough (a) - Lost by 8 wickets

Adam Langhorne (22) and Shaun Charlton (28*) were the only double figure scores as Richmondshire were rolled for 80 at Acklam Park. Middlesbrough lost 2 wickets seeing off the total.

4th XI v Cliffe (a) - Won by 99 runs

Richmondshire put 193-4 on the board from their reduced allocation of 36 overs, with Clive Layfield top-scoring with 67 not out from 64 balls. Cliffe could only manage 94 all out in reply, as Clive continued his success with 4 wickets for 13, and Gary Walker put in a solid performance in his first 4ths game as wicket keeper.

5th XI v Aldbrough (a) - Won by 28 runs

After choosing to bat on a good but wet wicket, Richmondshire amassed 189 from the allotted 30 overs, thanks to Michael Irving's 71 and quick-fire 20s from Tom Spensley and Jim While. Despite some wayward bowling, Aldbrough fell 28 runs short, the pick of the bowlers being Ted While with his steady 2-19.

Under 17s v Thornaby (h) - Won by 51 runs

Richmondshire batted first and put 144-9 on the board from 20 overs at home to Thornaby. The top 5 batsmen all made a contribution, particularly Adam Langhorne, who scored 40 including a 6. Richmond comfortably defended their total as Thornaby closed on 93-5, with economical bowling all round including 3-14 from Owen Kelly.

Under 15s v Billingham (h) - Won by 170 runs

Sam Winter led from the front with 53 (retired) as his side amassed a huge 202 from 20 overs. Ted While continued a successful weekend taking 3 wickets without conceding any runs, as Billingham made 32 in reply.
