11-12 July Results - 5 WINS OUT OF 5

All 5 Richmondshire teams won their league games this weekend.

1st XI v Redcar (h) - won

After losing opener Andy Fleming early, Gary Pratt (36) and Mike Layfield (80) helped Richmond to a respectable total, before something of a collapse left Richmondshire on 183 all out. Redcar looked like knocking of the runs, with their opener Usman Arshard scoring 76. Robert West eventually got him LBW and Toby Bulcock ripped through the tail, finishing with 4-56.

This result leaves Richmondshire tied with Barnard Castle on 232 points at the top of the NYSD Premier League table.


2nd XI v Saltburn (a) - won

Richmondshire posted 237-9 at Saltburn, with Joe Shields top-scoring with 64, and contributions of 52 from Adam Langhorne and 40 from Tom Stockton. Wickets were shared out with Owen Kelly's 3-21 being the pick of the figures, alongside 2 wickets each for Tom Stockton, Joe Shields and Michael Platt. A good bowling performance saw Richmond win comfortably by a margin of 112.


3rd XI v Great Ayton (a) - won

Tom Stockton's two-a-ball hundred (121 from 69) balls visibly entertained the row of spectators in front of Great Ayton's bar, and alongside James Kelly's useful 34 not out and Jordan Moss' 34 it saw Richmondshire post 276-8, leaving Ayton with more than 6 an over to win. A breakthrough proved elusive until the father-son left arm spin combo of Andy and James Kelly bowled in tandem, with Andy taking 5-10 and James 2-37. Harvey Websdale managed his usual trick of mopping up the tail-end wickets and Ayton were all out for 144.


4th XI v Cliffe (h) - won

50s for the Layfield brothers (Mark 60 and Clive 53 not out) saw Richmond post 208-4 from their 40 overs against relegation rivals Cliffe. Jonathan Simpson (3-32) and John Bewell (3-35) made a dent into Cliffe's scorecard and they fell well short on 137 all out.


5th XI v Cockerton (a) - won

Mike Irving scored 77 and Martin Brown 147 not out to see Richmond post a mammoth 247-1, aided by Cockerton's small boundaries. No bowler particularly stood out but in tandem Richmondshire's all junior attack was perfectly enough to contain Cockerton, who managed 181-6 in reply.
