Craig Swainston (3-25) and Toby Bulcock (3-22) inflicted most of the damage on Middlesbrough as they scored 142 all out. Gary Pratt's 70 not out was assisted by 34 from opening partner Steven Mather as Richmondshire made short work of the target, winning in 33.5 overs.

(Mon) 1st XI v Barnard Castle (a) - won by 4 wickets

2 wickets apiece for Sam Wood, Craig Swainston, Craig Marshall and Toby Bulcock contributed to restricting Barnard Castle to 143-8 from their 50 overs. Despite 44 not out from Mike Layfield, a lower order bailout was needed from Craig Swainston, who scored 29 not out to see Richmondshire over the line in the 43rd over.

2nd XI v Guisborough II (a) - lost by 5 wickets

Number 9 Tom Stockton top scored with 33 as Richmondshire limped to 128 all out at Fountains Garth. Some Richmondshire bowlers returned tidy figures but despite this Guisborough knocked off the runs 5 down in the 33rd over.

3rd XI v Redcar III (h) - won by 185 runs

Contributions from Richmondshire's all-junior top 3 of Adam Langhorne (81), Matthew Price (35) and Owen Kelly (47) followed up by 40 from Clive Layfield saw Richmondshire reach 262-4. 3-31 from Tom Stockton and 5 wickets between the father-son combo of Andy and James Kelly reduced Redcar to 77 all out, handing Richmondshire a massive victory.

4th XI v Raby Castle (h) - lost by 5 wickets

Thanks to 72 from Clive Layfield, Richmondshire posted 168-5 at Gilling. However, Richmondshire leaked runs in the field and Raby Castle plundered their way to the target in just 23 overs.

5th XI v Nunthorpe (n) - lost by 4 wickets

League newcomers Nunthorpe bowled Richmondshire out for 82 in a game played at Middleton Tyas due to fixture congestion. Johnny Carlton's 3-13 were the best figures returned by a Richmondshire bowler as Nunthorpe eased their way to the target comfortably.

U17 v Sedgefield (a) - lost by 2 runs

Despite losing just 2 wickets, Sedgefield stayed below 6 an over, putting 116 on the board. Sam Winter (20), Joe Shields (39) and Owen Kelly (33) made a good effort of the chase but Richmondshire finished agonisingly close on 114-5.

U15 v Darlington R.A. (a) - won by 111 runs

Gary Walker and Matthew Price retired after unbeated fifties as Richmondshire amassed 181 runs, a feat which seems even more incredible seeing as they were actually bowled out before the end of their allotted 20 overs. Jack Smith took 4-10 as R.A. fell a long way short on 70-9.
