Abi Glen and Jess Woolston warmed up for the resumption of 50-over cricket with the Northern Diamonds by sharing five wickets across a pair of county T20 fixtures for Yorkshire yesterday.

Unfortunately, the county lost both County Championship T20 fixtures at Chesterfield, against Derbyshire and Lancashire.

Derbyshire won the first match of the day by six wickets chasing 94. Woolston struck once in that game after Yorkshire had posted 93-6 batting first. 

Hannah Buck top-scored with a middle order 34.

In the second game, Lancashire posted 123-7, with seamers Glen and Woolston returning impressive figures of 2-13 and 2-19 from their respective four-over spells.

However, despite opener Amelia Oliver’s 43 in reply, Yorkshire finished on 105-4, losing by 18 runs.

The county have now played four, lost two and had the other two washed out. They have another four games remaining in that competition. 

Meanwhile, there was better news for Yorkshire’s D40 Tykes team in the second tier of the ECB Disability structure – the Pursuit League, North and Midlands.

They beat Warwickshire by four wickets at Moseley yesterday, chasing down a target of 157 thanks mainly to wicketkeeper-opener Curtis Sugden’s 56 off 75 balls.

Captain Owen Morris contributed 21 and Jamie Dillon 23 in the middle order.

Earlier, the Bears were bowled out for 156 thanks largely to Dairen Hirst-Spalding’s 3-10 from eight overs of spin. Jacob Grimes and Oliver Wills also contributed two wickets as nine bowlers were used.

Spalding also finished 16 not out and hit the winning runs in pursuit. 

The D40 Tykes, Yorkshire’s second team, have now won two and lost two this season.
