Day 4

Yorkshire started the final day at 89-2, the target being 575. Ben Parker was bowled by Tom Loten in the 4th over of the day. Owen Smith joined his Academy colleague, Will Bennison and they added a patient 33 in 104 balls before Smith was caught behind for 11 from 46 balls.

However this led to a rapid loss of wickets as the last 7 fell for only 36 as we were dismissed for 162. Bennison was bowled by Patterson-White for 41 from 157 balls with 4 fours and only Isaac Light reached double figures making 29 from 32 balls.

Yorkshire recorded only 3 bonus points as we were beaten by 412 runs.

Next action is on Friday 10th May at Weetwood with 2 T20s against Leeds/Bradford University.

Day 3

Day 3 commenced under a misty sky with Nottinghamshire 109-1 from 19 overs. Ben Cliff and Alex Wade each bowled 5 overs without success and the score advanced to 169-1. Ben Parker replaced Wade and in his 2nd over he bowled Hayes who had made 31 from 69 balls. Matthew Montgomery replaced Hayes and he made 11 before he was bowled by Dom Bess.

Martindale had reached his century from only 70 balls (17 fours and 2 sixes) and at lunch he remained unbeaten on 142 (21 fours and 2 sixes). Bess had struck earlier to have Tom Moores caught at cover by Jawad Akhtar for 29. Lunch, Nottinghamshire 254-5, a lead of 386.

If anyone thought a declaration might be imminent they were mistaken as Nottinghamshire continued to bat. Martindale posted his 150 from 148 balls  but 8 balls later was the victim of a tremendous catch at slip by James Wharton as the batter attempted a reverse sweep.

Liam Patterson-White was joined by King but the latter was caught and bowled to give Jawad Akhtar his first 2nd X1 wicket – his 2nd arrived not too long after when he had Singh caught at long off by Ben Cliff. Meanwhile Patterson-White reached his half century from 45 balls and he became Akhtars 3rd victim when the bowler held a very high caught and bowled chance.

Schadendorf made 33 unbeaten at better than a run a ball, Tom Loten was run out backing up by Cliff who got a touch on his follow through and Cliff was finally rewarded by taking the last wicket, caught behind – Notts were 442 all out, a lead of 574.

Will Luxton and James Wharton opened our reply but with the score on 22 Wharton was bowled for the 2nd time by Loten – he made 9. Will Bennison showed great patience and was unbeaten at the close on 25 from 82 balls, however just before the close of play Luxton was adjudged lbw to Patterson-White when “padding up” – he made 42 from 94.

At the close Yorkshire are 89-2 needing a further 486 for an unlikely victory.

Day 2

The day commenced with Nottinghamshire declaring at their overnight score of 377-9.

Will Luxton and James Wharton opened the innings reaching 39 after only 8 overs and the 50 partnership came from only 80 balls. The score had reached 72 when Wharton lost his off stump to Tom Loten having made 17 from 47. Luxton completed his half century from 59 balls with 9 fours and a six but from 72 without loss we slumped to 85-4.

Will Bennison was bowled for nought and Dom Bess caught behind for no score. Debutant Owen Smith made 7 before he was caught at point and Luxton and Matt Milnes guided us through to lunch at 111-4: Luxton 64 not out (9 fours and 2 sixes), Milnes 16 not out (3 fours).

Shortly after lunch Milnes was bowled by Luke Fletcher, 117-5. Meanwhile Luxton had advanced to 79 when he was bowled by Ali, his total made from 122 balls with 12 fours and 2 sixes. At this juncture we were still 90 shy of the follow on figure and at the wicket were 2 Academy players having their first bat at this level. However Jawad Akhtar and Joe Thompson went past a half century partnership in 64 deliveries and they had extended this to 69 when the former was adjudged lbw for 48 made from 77 balls with 6 fours and a six – 207-7.

Alex Wade made 5 before he was also lbw and at tea Yorkshire were 219-8, Thompson unbeaten on 32 and Ben Cliff 2 not out – 9 were required to avoid the follow on.

Cliff was bowled by Singh for 4 with 4 still required but Joe Thompson saw us past the follow on figure and reached a maiden half century from 87 balls and he finished unbeaten on 56 with Ben Parker being caught at slip for nought – 245 all out trailing by 132.

Nineteen overs remained in the day and Nottinghamshire raced to 109-1 – the only wicket being caught behind off Alex Wade. At the close Martindale, who wa dropped in the first over was 67 not out from 46 balls with 11 fours and 2 sixes – they lead by 241 runs.

Day 1

This being the 4th Championship game of the season it was the first time that we have had play on the 1st day. Our hosts won the toss and elected to bat.

Ben Cliff struck with the 4th ball of the day having Martindale caught at mid wicket by Alex Wade. Ben Parker then had Montgomery caught at the wicket by Joe Thompson and Nottinghamshire were 18-2.

Tom Moores made 19 from 23 balls before he too was caught behind to give trialist, Will Rogers his first wicket; 51-3. This brought former Tyke, Tom Loten to the crease and at lunch he and Liam Patterson-White had added 48 to take the total to 99-3 from 28 overs.

Patterson-White reached his half century from 79 balls with 4 fours and 2 sixes and had progressed to 65 when he was smartly stumped by Thompson off Dom Bess – 138-4. Loten posted his half century from 113 balls with 4 fours but he was well caught low at square leg by Will Luxton  for 62 from 121 balls. King was caught behind off Bess for 3 – 189-6.

Luke Fletcher joined Dane Schadendorf and they remained unbeaten at tea with the score 238-6, Fletcher 13 not out and Schadendorf 54 not out from 80 deliveries with 5 fours. The evening session saw them reach a century partnership from 155 balls and Fletcher reached a half century from 80 balls with 7 fours and 2 maximums. The partnership had extended to 132 when the new ball accounted for Schadendorf caught at point by Owen Smith off Cliff for 88.

Luke Fletcher continued playing some big shots – he lost Hayes caught at mid off by Rogers off Cliff but had reached 99 from 125 balls when Cliff claimed his 4th wicket uprooting his off stump – however he had hit 12 fours and 4 sixes. They closed the day on 377-9.
