Jamie Dillon’s maiden Yorkshire half-century and a stunning hat-trick from Jacob Grimes helped the S9 Terriers continue their unbeaten start to 2022, beating Cheshire by 14 runs at South Milford in Leeds yesterday.

Dillon’s unbeaten 53 off 40 balls – retired out – was the feature of the county’s 225-3 from 30 overs, including a series of valuable contributions.

Opener Grimes was the standout performer, however, hitting 48 and claiming a fine feat with the ball.

Grimes shared 125 for the third wicket with Dillon, who hit nine boundaries in his half-century.

They advanced the score from 75-2, a key passage of play in ensuring victory over Cheshire, who sit second in the National League North table for S9.

They are a whopping 89 points behind runaway leaders Yorkshire, who have played one game more.

A fourth win in five games, ensuring a 30-point haul, was rubber-stamped largely by the Grimes and Dillon combination once more, the pair sharing five wickets as Cheshire were bowled out for 211 inside 29 overs.

Grimes led the way with 3-27 from 4.5 overs, including his hat-trick. Two were bowled and one caught. Dillon finished with 2-27 from six.

Cheshire lost wickets all too regularly, including two for opening bowler Richard Lovedale.
