HICE stroll to a ten wicket 'walk in the park' over PatCC 2nds

The season's leading wicket taker in Holderness Division 3, HICE's Liam Walker, was responsible for his side strolling to victory within just a couple of hours, in an incredibly one sided affair at Brantingham Park. 

Having already taken 23 wickets in the first 5 matches, Patrington's batsmen were aware they'd have to be at their best against Walker, as well as fellow opening bowler Alex Chapple. However, opener Danny Fincham was Walker's first victim off the very first ball of the match, gloving a short ball behind to the keeper. Jed Foster followed just three balls later, with Walker finding the youngster's outside edge for another catch behind. 

It was up to uncle and nephew pairing, Jason and Jamie McKinley to steady the ship, albeit only a little, taking the score to 23 for 2, before the former departed (again off the bowling of Walker) after a leading edge to cover.

From thereon, the middle and lower order had an epic collapse, with no answer to HICE's bowling, with seven wickets tumbling for just six runs - despite the pitch being ideal for batting. Will Ineson and Shaun McKinley put on a last wicket partnership of sorts (15 runs), taking the score to 44 before the latter was dismissed, finishing the side's top run scorer with nine (but below extras, amounting for 12). Walker, bowling with confidence, a good line and purposely varied length and pace, took 8 for 17 off 10.1 overs, taking his season tally to 31 in just six matches, backed up by Chapple with 2 for 15. 

With the captains agreeing to delay tea (which would likely not have been ready in any event), the HICE opening batsmen took just 7.5 overs to surpass the paltry Patrington total, without loss - with Boddy and Forrester finishing on 24 and 21 not out respectively. 

Having slipped to two consecutive ten wicket losses, skipper Jamie McKinley will be hoping for a vast improvement, and a disciplined performance, at home to Driffield's fourth team.

1XI Match Report

Patrington welcomed league leaders Whitkirk to Southside looking to improve upon last week's comprehensive win away at Pocklington. Craig Foster was unavailable but Matty Dixon returned and Jordy Critchley made his first 1st XI appearance of the year with Patrington almost at full strength.

With overnight rain the visitors won the toss and unsurprisingly asked the 1st XI to bat first. Marc Pollard and Stew Guy got off to as steady start and reached 37 without loss before Guy played on for 13. Connor McKinley was caught behind three balls later without scoring with Michael O'Brien (2 for 18) picking up the wickets. Pollard and Ashley McKinley then continued from their good form from last week with a partnership of 111 to put the hosts into a good position. At 148 for 2, Pollard was then caught on the boundary looking to increase the run rate for 57. McKinley continued to bat superbly and duly reached a well deserved century, bringing it up with one of 16 boundaries whilst also hitting two sixes. Unfortunately at the other end Jacob Duffil and Critchley fell for single figures and when McKinley fell Patrington were 191 for 6. Some late order hitting from Dixon (31) saw Patrington reach 234 for 8, perhaps slightly less than they had hoped with the momentum being lost some what in the late part of the innings with Ratcliffe and Blanchard providing some support for Dixon.

In response, Mark Murphy (11) retired hurt having being hit by Ashley McKinley, but the response was all about visiting captain Simon Webb who hit a sensational 133 not out to win his time the game in what turned out to be a perfectly timed run chase. Webb hit 15 fours and 3 sixes, and received support from David Tubby (16), Michael O'Brien (18) and George Walker (39*).

Dixon (1 for 51) and McKinley (1 for 41) were the only wicket takers as Patrington dropped catches early on the innings that proved to be costly. Jack Eggett bowled a spell of 12 overs, 0 for 46 and was unlucky not to pick up any wickets but Patrington were in truth around 30 or 40 runs short at Whitkirk reached their target with 5 overs to spare.

The 1st XI remain 3rd in Division One and travel to Sewerby on Saturday and look to get back to winning ways.

Patrington 3rd team travelled to North Ferriby on a overcast mild day , trying to build on their great start to the season , they lost a vital toss and were put into bat, on an interesting surface openers Jed Foster and Liam Murrey tried to lay a solid platform for the team but the nature of the surface was allways going to be a challenge with Murrey first to go , this brought Billy Ineson to the crease who relished the challenge and was the mainstay of the patrington innings with everybody else falling around him , Billy managed to score a magnificent 59 in a team total 82 all out in 32.1 overs.

Patringtons bowlers came out with a great attitude with Liam Murrey and Bob Metcalf keeping the hosts at bay with fine line and length bowling...but it was Jack Todd who was first to strike taking 2 quick wickets reducing ferriby to 21-2 after 13 overs...Jack continues to impress week on week, the 16 year old has a bright future ahead of him...Ferriby were not going to be given anything easy and the patrington bowlers stuck to there task brilliantly but ultimately it wasnt to be enough as ferriby reached there target , reaching 87 - 5 after 31.1 overs. This being a good learning curve for a young side in a low scoring game and no doubt Patrington 3rds will come back strongly next week away to Sutton.

Remarkable captain's innings not enough for the 2nds

The 2nd XI's fixture at home to North Dalton was a truly memorable affair, though sadly did not go the way of the home side. On a resplendent Southside, Patrington were asked to bat first in excellent batting conditions - on a pitch that proved to be very unfriendly to the bowlers.

Young opener Danny Fincham continued his recent good form for the 2nds, though the loss of two quick wickets at the other end saw 2nd team skipper, Jamie McKinley, enter stage left with the score on just 18 for 2 after 8 overs. Thereafter, the two batsmen dominated, putting on an excellent 92 partnership in 18 overs, at 5 runs per over. In truth, they gave several chances to the opposition, which were not taken, but  starting to look well set, it was a surprise when Fincham was bowled for a well crafted 42, hitting 8 boundaries along the way.

Middle order batsmen came and went, with Mike Fox chipping in with 15, but there were fireworks at the other end - as Captain McKinley commandeered the ball to all parts of the ground. Jamie hit 14 fours and smashed 9 sixes in one of the biggest individual innings at Southside, finishing on 147 - a score worthy of the green, Southside baize - as he was dismissed in the very last over attempting to pass 150.  He amassed more than 60% of his side's 243 for 8. Suddards was the pick of the away team's bowlers, with 3 for 44 off his permitted 12 overs. 

With such favourable batting conditions, and a lightning outfield, the home side were aware they'd have to bowl and field well to restrict the North Dalton side to less than the required 5.4 runs per over. However, knowing that early in roads were vital, a simple chance was regretfully shelled with opener Woodmansey on just 20. Subsequently, despite Patrington's bowling attack persevering and bowling tidily enough, the North Dalton openers batted brilliantly, with increasing assurance.  

In one of the best ever partnerships at the ground, the visiting batsmen passed Patrington's score without loss, with a few overs to spare - Woodmansey and Lees scoring 121 and 99 not out respectively, with the latter being unfortunate not to reach three figures before the victory target was achieved. 

Whist it was a disappointing defeat, the 2nd XI can take pride in how they kept plugging away right until defeat was certain, though skipper McKinley will be looking for the side to be at their very best as they visit promotion chasing HICE this weekend.

Pocklington 186ao
Patrington 187/2
On Saturday the 1st XI travelled to Pocklington looking for their third win of the season against last years Division two champions. Having lost narrowly at the same ground last year, captain Stew Guy knew his team would have to turn in a strong performance to return to Patrington with 30 points and that’s exactly what they did as they handed out a crushing 8 wicket victory to move up to third in Division 1.
After winning the toss and asking the home side to bat it was Billy Ineson who made the early breakthrough with the wind at his back as he clean bowled one of the Pocklington openers on a lively surface. With the assistance of a lightning outfield, Pocklington then added runs in quick time until the introduction of leading wicket-taker Glenn Ratcliffe stemmed the flow and he picked up the second wicket thanks to a high catch from Duffill to remove the dangerous Donkin with the score on 50. Ratcliffe picked up the third wicket in his next over and when Eggett was introduced into the attack, the home side started to feel the pressure as the experienced pair kept the run rate down. Wickets started to fall at regular intervals and with Ractliffe and Eggett picking up one a piece the score was 115 for 5 around the halfway stage. Jacob Duffill (2 for 34) came into the attack and quickly picked up two wickets in an over thanks to an excellent catch from Connor McKinley at gully. Eggett picked up another wicket clean bowling the opposition captain Lambert to finish with excellent figures of 2 for 42 to carry on his fine start to the season. At 131 for 8 a score of less than 150 looked likely but Pocklingtons number 10, George Batty, proved to be the star of the innings as he hit a swift 40* before been stranded as Ineson (2 for 27) returned to the attack to pick up the 9th wicket and the innings was rounded up as Glenn Ratcliffe proved his credentials as one of the top bowlers in the league by picking up the last man Brattan to finish with 4 for 36.
Whilst the score of 186 was slightly more than Pocklington should of got the Patrington side were confident at the halfway point that the target was gettable on a flat track with a quick outfield. Pollard and Guy opened the batting and right from the off Pollard stamped his authority over the opposition bowlers playing some cracking pulls and cuts to get the reply off to the best possible start. Guy fell for 19 with the score on 69 but Pollard did not go into his shell as he punished every mistake made by the Pocklington bowlers. Pollard had already passed 50 when Connor McKinley fell for a quick 15. This brought the in-form Ash McKinley to the crease at 109/2 and the pair didn’t look to be in any trouble as they picked off the bowling on their way to chasing down the total. McKinley finished on 39 not out including 7 fours and a towering six. At the other end Pollard hit a flurry of fours to bring up his 6th first team hundred for the club and his first since 2013. His 107 not out coming off 121 balls and containing 15 fours. An almost chanceless innings which shows the openers class after a lean year by his own high standards last year.
On Saturday the first XI host early league pace setters Whitkirk which looks set to be a well contested game down at Southside with Patrington looking for a fourth straight victory.

Then into the attack came Johnson whose bowling was very skilful again picking up figures of 10 overs 3 - 53. At the 30 over mark driffield tried to up the anti with the scoring rate and played some expansive shots but the Patrington fielding was excellent with 3 run outs being effected in those final 10 overs with Driffield chasing the game , Jed Foster and Jack Todd then came on at the death showing maturity beyond their years with a superb final 6 overs being bowled to snuff out any slim oppertunity Driffield had of winning.

Hessle 241 for 6 off 45.0 overs beat PatCC 2nd XI 98 all out off 36.2 overs, by 143 runs

Following a convincing win in the Holderness Trophy the previous week, PatCC's 2nd XI fell to a crushing defeat in their first league game of the season, against a strong Hessle outfit. 

Having won the toss, Hessle's skipper, Scott Page, duly elected to bat first, opening the innings with team mate Gaz Nicholls - one of the league's leading run scorers in 2015 - on a good looking batting track. When youngster Dec Precious bowled Nicholls with a gem of a delivery for just 14, the 2nds scented an opportunity to put the pressure on. However, in truth, Patrington's bowlers struggled to find consistent line and length, with too many wayward balls - often finding their way to or indeed beyond the boundary. 

The only sign of pressure came when Jason McKinley took a smart catch off Duffill, to dismiss Hessle's skipper for 44. But, Leigh Page went on to make a fluent 64, before also being dismissed by Duffill (whom took 2-64), whilst all the remaining Hessle batsmen made double figures, with Picken and Inglis contributing 38 and 26 respectively.  Liam Murrey could consider himself unfortunate not to have taken a wicket, having bowled a tidy spell of 6 overs, whilst skipper Jamie McKinley took two late wickets, to finish with 2 for 33.  At the interval, the home side were by far the chirpier, having ended their innings on 241 for 6 wickets off their allotted 45 overs.  

Knowing they needed a solid foundation to mount any sort of challenge, the run chase was all but over in the first fifteen overs. Jason McKinley, with a well crafted innings of 30, was the only one of the top five batsmen not to register a duck, as loose shots saw the side collapse to 48 for the loss of five wickets. With five of those runs coming from the ball hitting the fielding side's redundant helmet, that particular piece of clubwear ended up being the fifth highest scorer for the Patrington team. The slow bowling of Andy Brannigan accounted for the entire top order as he took match winning figures of 5 for 20 off 10 overs. 

The only plus in the innings came in the form of some middle order resistance, and classy drives, from youngsters Jack Todd and Liam Murrey, as they scored 16 and 27 respectively - with Liam posting his highest score in senior cricket and both showing their all round potential. However, PatCC failed to reach three figures, with Shaun McKinley the last man out, scoring six (one more than the helmet) as the innings finished on a paltry 98 all out.

Skipper Jamie McKinley will be looking for his mixture of youth and experience to immediately bounce back and put in a solid batting display, as they return to Southside this weekend, to take on Hornsea's second string. 

1XI Match Report - Saturday, April 30th 2016

3rd May 2016

After last week's disheartening loss away at Hornsea, 1st XI skipper Stew Guy demanded a big response from his side as they welcomed Osbaldwick and he was not disappointed as his side were rampant and raced to a 9 wicket victory to register their first win of the season.
Guy won the toss and after impressing last week, Billy Ineson continues to improve and soon made inroads into the visitor's top order. Ashley McKinley shared the new ball in seems to be enjoying the extra responsibility, with the pair reducing Osbaldwick to 23 for 5 with Ineson picking up 3 for 9, one wicket thanks to a superb diving catch at square leg from Connor McKinley, and Ashley taking 2 for 11 including top scorer James Smith (13).
Last weeks stellar performer Glenn Ratcliffe (3 for 8) soon got in on the act as he replaced McKinley from the school end as Osbalwick collapsed further. Matty Dixon, making his first appearance of the year, looked to blow away some cobwebs in a brief spell and Jack Eggett and Chris Blanchard both picked up a wicket apiece as the visitors were bowled out for 63.
Extras top scored with 24, and if one was to be uber critical, Patrington are still not quite up to their usual high standards in the field but that will no doubt come as the season goes on. Only 2 batsmen reached double figures as a young visiting side were dismissed for a total that was well below par.
Ian Buss made light work of making sure that Patrington registered their first 30 points of the year. The opener hit 34 not out from just 27 balls and Connor McKinley hit 18 not out from just 8 balls as victory was secured within 8 overs with Marc Pollard (6) the only casualty.
The 1st XI are sure to face a sterner test next week when they travel West to face Selby.
