1st XI Cricket v Cokethorpe
The first XI travelled to Cokethorpe in what was to be their final match of the 2017 cricket season. We have managed to put out a fairly consistent side this year with the likes of William Hedger, Matty Thornley, Jacob Ford-Langstaff and George Wilkinson stepping up from year 9. From year 10 we saw Torin Little and Alex Gomersall also make the step up.
Following the 20/20 format we struggled initially losing early wickets with Will Honour, Callum Millard and William Hedger all getting out cheaply. It took Fred Wilkinson and Oakley Young to steady the ship and see us just scrape to 96 for 5 wickets from our 20 overs. Fred Wilkinson was dismissed on the final ball of the innings for 50 and was well supported by Oakley Young on 18. Cokethorpe knocked off the runs in 16 overs with only a wicket down, this saw us lose by 9 wickets. Oakley Young was the pick of the bowlers and finished with figures 1 for 18 from 5 overs.
