Wilson and Free debuts shine through gloom

— 28 April 2011

A sparkling debut by Golcar wicket-keeper Edward Wilson was one of two positives for Yorkshire Academy to take from a five-wicket defeat by their Durham counterparts in the limited-overs friendly match at New Rover.

Wilson top-scored for Yorkshire with 44, including two fours and three sixes – before chipping in with two catches at the wicket – and the other one-day debutant, Curtis Free, came in with 4-14 from  a fine seven-over spell.


Yorkshire skipper Jack Hargreaves, pictured, elected to bat – but he was soon at the crease as George Ross fell with the score on 6. Left-hander Johnny Booth was caught by Ross Carr at 29, but Jack Leaning played some fine shots off the front foot as he and Hargreaves pushed the total on to 65. 


Hargreaves seemed to lose concentration, and charged medium-pacer Carr to end his innings of 26 , including five fours. Leaning was lbw for a useful 27, failing to play a shot. Will Rhodes, 24, and James Tattersall, 31, played minor roles, but none of the first six batsmen dominated the Durham attack. 


Wicket-keeperWilson was the only one who could be really pleased with his performance in the middle: his 44 runs off 57 balls was the best knock by any Academy player, but eventually his concentration lapsed and he was stumped many feet down the wicket.


Spinner Sameet Brar’s return of 3-25 was good, but he was helped by inadequate batting displays.  No Yorkshire player went on to a big score and dominate the attack.


Durham openers Paul Coughlin and Conor Pearce scored at nearly a run a ball until their partnership of 41 was broken by Ashley Robinson. Coughlin was caught at mid-on by Free, who then replaced Robinson. Yorkshire had immediate success when Free had Ryan Pringle caught at the wicket by Wilson and then bowled Pearce.


With the total on 71 this was perhaps the best period of the match for Yorkshire. Free had Sameet Brar caught by Wilson, and when Carr departed at 91-5 Durham were struggling.


New Zealand left-hander Harvey Nicholls, who plays for Blaydon, and Joe Coyne, usually an opener, completely turned the match: they put on 128 and dominated the Yorkshire bowling. Coyne eventually fell to Johnny Moxon, but with only 12 needed and four wickets in hand the result was never in doubt.


A deserved four-wicket win for Durham. Two positives for Yorkshire – the fine bowling spell by Doncaster’s Free and an excellent debut by Golcar’s Wilson.
