9-10 May Results

1st XI v Seaton Carew (h) - won by 2 wickets

Like most games this weekend, the Premier League game was cut short - to 30 overs a side. Richmondshire restricted Seaton Carew to 116-9 from their 30 overs, with tandem spin bowling from Toby Bulcock and Craig Marshall inflicting most of the damage, Toby Bulcock taking 5-30. 55 opening up from Gary Pratt got Richmond off to a good start before they lost 8 wickets on the way to a last ball victory.

2nd XI v Bishop Auckland (a) - lost by 6 wickets

In a game reduced by rain before the start, Richmondshire amassed 144-5 from their 37 overs thanks to contributions from openers Mike Fleming (39) and Jack Rowett (46). Unfortunately, Bishop Auckland lost only 4 wickets seeing off the total, with Richmondshire just a few balls away from holding them to the draw.

3rd XI v Darlington (a) - won by 158 runs

The weather was much kinder to cricketers on Sunday, enabling Richmondshire to post 199-7 in the unreduced quota of 45 overs. A 74 partnership between Adam Langhorne (61) and Matthew Price (32) gave Richmond a platform, which was built on by quick runs from Clive Layfield (43) and Mike Fleming (29). Richmondshire then gave Darlington a shock by pegging them back to 7 for 7, before a recovery of sorts saw them finish on 41, as batsmen 9, 10 and 11 bucked the trend by getting off the mark. Shaun Charlton finished with figures of 6-4.
