8-9 August Results

1st XI v Guisborough (h) - won

Guisborough batted first at Richmond and captain Turner (53) and number 5 Murray (74) gave the innings momentum, but Toby Bulcock removed them both in his 5-52. Guisborough finished on 208-8 from their 50 overs. Richmondshire's innings showed promising signs of a return to form with the bat as the top 3 all fired. Andy Fleming made 48, Gary Pratt scored a quick 92 off 107 and Mike Layfield really upped the pace with 67 from 39, as Richmondshire finished 2 down with almost 10 overs left.


2nd XI v Billingham Synthonia (a) - losing draw

Shaun Charlton's 5-55 pegged Billingham back and Michael Platt's 2-6 helped clean up the tail, with Billingham finishing on 191 all out leaving 53 overs left in the day's play for Richmondshire to see off the target. The reply got off to a good start with a 92 partnership between Nathan Wright (61) and Jack Rowett (25) but Owen Kelly was the only subsequent batsman to make double figures as Richmondshire played out the bore draw, finishing 160-8.


3rd XI v Marton III (a) - won

Dave Moffatt elected to bat and sent in last week's successful opening partnership of Clive Layfield and Matty Price. Price fell early, but Layfield made 106 not out, supported by 33 from Jack Rowett and a quickfire 24 from Owen Kelly, to take Richmond to 209-5 from the 45 overs. Leadbitter made 36 for Marton to get them off to a good start but Tom Stockton removed him in his economical spell of 2-15. Then spinner James Kelly made inroads with his 5-34 and Marton were comfortably short on 147 all out.

Jeff Stead rotated the Richmondshire bowlers with Dan Osborne (2-9), Gaz Wood (2-3), Jonny Carlton (2-14) and Harvey Websdale (2-14) taking 2 each. Even with the joke bowling of the While brothers making an appearance, Barningham finished short on 80 all out.
