Yorkshire Academy returned to action at Stamford Bridge on Saturday after an enforced fortnight break due to Covid.

The Academy won the toss on a red hot day and unsurprisingly elected to bat and lost the first wicket in the first over. Harry Allinson and Matthew Weston shared a second wicket partnership of 84 from 105 balls before Weston fell for 34.

Allinson was dismissed shortly after for 46. Debutant Harry Finch was joined by Noah Priestley and the pair put on 40 before Priestley became the 4th wicket to fall at 128. James Mukherjee joined Finch and they shared a 5th wicket stand of 44 before Mukherjee was dismissed. Finch reached his half century and with the total on 182 became the 6th wicket to fall for 59 from 87 balls with 4 fours. The Academy innings finished on 220 for 9 from 50 overs.

The main wicket taker for the home side was Liam Burgess with 4 for 45 from 13 overs. Wicket keeper Jack Timby had a hand in four dismissals with two catches and two stumpings.

In the reply the hosts lost an early wicket before the second wicket fell, that of Jack Timby for 31. This led to a collapse as Stamford Bridge went from 47 for 1 in the 12th over to 61 for 6 in the 18th against tight bowling. The late order gave some resistance before being 103 all out from 31.4 overs.

Spinners Harry Sullivan 3 for 17 from 8 overs and Sam Wisniewski 2 for 22 from 6 overs did the damage.

It was another impressive win for Yorkshire Academy who remain in second place in the table behind Castleford who are due to visit Weetwood next Saturday in a top of the table clash.

Due to matches not being played as a result of Covid issues the table will be determined on average points per match.

Points: Stamford Bridge 0 Yorkshire Academy 10.
