4-5 July Results

1st XI v Darlington (a) - won

The 1s recorded an important win at Feethams. Darlington batted first and thanks to 7-16 from Toby Bulcock they were skittled for 94. Richmondshire fell to 30-2, losing both openers early, but 44 not out from number 4 Mike Fleming steadied the ship and saw Richmond home in 27.4 overs for the loss of 3 wickets.

2nd XI v Darlington II (h) - won

Adam Langhorne's 2-31 were the best figures returned by a Richmondshire bowler as Darlington posted 186-7. Jack Rowett and Tom Dell contributed 36 and 37 respectively, followed up by 44 from Richard Carruthers, but Richmondshire lost 9 wickets and still had runs to get. Richmondshire went on to win off the last ball by 1 wicket.

3rd XI v Norton (h) - no result

Clive Layfield's 55 not out helped Richmond to 168 all out, but the weather stole their chance to defend that total.

4th XI v Barton (a) - lost

Richmondshire's 117-7 was chased down for the loss of 4 wickets in a comfortable 24.2 overs. As would be expected in such a loss, there were no individual figures of note.

5th XI v Oxbridge II (h) - won

Thanks to 4-26 from Ted While and 3-11 from Sam Potter, Oxbridge were restricted to 93 all out. A highlight of this innings was a superb catch diving backwards from Peter While. Mike Irving continued his form with 60 not out and Richmondshire won comfortably.
