By John Virr – 2nd XI Scorer

Yorkshire suffered their first defeat of this year’s campaign as they went down to a 15 run defeat in a low scoring encounter in front of a bumper crowd. On a day when yours truly made his debut combining all scoring duties with that of PA announcer.

Yorkshire won the toss and asked our hosts to bat first. Ben Cliff struck with the fourth ball of the day having George Balderson caught behind and at the end of the powerplay they had reached 38 for no further loss.

Debutant, 16 year old Louie Owens struck with only his third delivery bowling Josh Bohannon for 21 and at the end of the 11th over Lancashire had posted 83-2. However in the next 8.2 overs they lost their final eight wickets for the addition of 43 runs.

There were three wickets each for Ben Cliff (3-22) and Jack Shutt (3-18), Dom Leech had 2 (2-23) there were also 3 catches for Noah Kelly, one in particular, a fine effort running back at short third man.

In reply Yorkshire were 29-3 at the end of the powerplay having lost Vagadia 7, Bean 10 and Fraine 10. Skipper, George Hill, attempted the rebuild but lost Duke for eight and he himself was caught at mid on for 17. Noah Kelly made 20 but only Ben Cliff reached double figures (14) and Yorkshire finished on 110-9.

The final fixture of the North Group is against Derbyshire at Duffield on 8th June 2.30 pm.

Finals day is at Wormsley on Thursday 15th June.
