Season Updates

1st XI

The 1st XI lie 3rd in an unusually open NYSD Premier League. Marske occupy the top spot with 217 points to Barnard Castle's 190 and Richmondshire's 188. Local rivals Darlington and otherwise rivals Great Ayton could still mount a title challenge with 160 and 181 points respectively.

Key fixtures:

  • 25th June - away to Darlington (Feethams)
  • 9th July - home to Great Ayton
  • 30th July - away to Barnard Castle
  • 3rd September - home to Marske

2nd XI

After seasons in the 2nd Team Salver title race, the 2nd XI themselves in the midst of a relegation battle in the NYSD Division 1, having secured only 2 wins so far this season. However, their ability to hold out for draws in losing situations has paid dividends and they currently lie just outside of the relegation zone. The task of staying up is made harder by there being an extra third relegation spot - the league will be 1 team smaller next season. Relegation rivals include Sedgefield 1s, Northallerton 1s, Stokesley 2s, and Blackhall 1s.

3rd XI

The 3rds have already delivered silverware, as Joe Shield's all-round performance of 37 and 3-8 saw off Middlesbrough to win the T20 Arthur Sanders Cup. Their league performance has also been successful. They currently lie 4th in the NYSD Sunday Division 1, within 2 wins of league leaders Barnard Castle.

4th XI

Winning only 2 games so far, it would be fair to say the 4ths season hasn't gone entirely to plan, but thanks to Lands enduring a difficult season and Rockliffe 3rds struggling in their 1sts vacated A Division slot they shouldn't be at risk of relegation. Many of the junior performances on promotion from the 5ths have been pleasing.

5th XI

In a surprising turn of events, the 5th XI find themselves occupying 2nd place in the D&D C Division. With Eryholme playing well and Etherley having 2 games in hand, their place there is under threat but it's good to see reward for good performances from juniors, particularly James Irving with the bat and gloves and Ted While and Sam Potter with the ball.
