25th April 2016

Patrington lll team started their league campaign this Sunday gone against Hull Zingari lll at a very chilly southside, the ground a picture as always, Zingari won the toss and elected to field first. With patrington inserted in to bat openers Danny Fincham and Jed Foster laid the solid foundations the team needed, fincham the first to be dismissed for 11 which brought Dean Johnson to the crease foster and johnson continued to play freely with Foster in particular shining with a great knock of 43 , with johnson the next to go for 22 this brought young Jack Todd to the crease , Todd played a great innings with some classy shots to keep the scoreboard rattling along . When the 5th wicket fell this brought skipper Brian Butler to the crease...his brisk innings of 39 in a stand of 59 with Todd catapulted the score to a very respectable 189 - 7 of 40 overs to end the patrington innings. The Performance of the Day belonged to Todd who scored his maiden half century for the club finishing on  a very well deserved 51 not out , a player with a great future ahead of him.The Zingari innings never really got off the ground with some great opening bowling from Shaun Mckinley and Liam Murrey with mckinley picking up the first wicket of the innings then stepped up Dave Turley who bowled with brilliant control with figures of 8 overs for just 9 runs , Dean Johnson likewise impressed with with a skillful spell of spin bowling with figures of 19 for 3 of 10 overs. Zingari finidhed on 111 - 9 with Patrington failing to take that elusive last wicket but a winning draw on the day was a well earned result for a great Patrington team display.

25th April 2016

Welton & Brough 1st XI 212-7 (45.0 ov) lost to PatCC 2nd XI 215-4 (43.1 ov)
The 2nd XI faired much better than the 1st team, with Jamie McKinley's Division 3 side recording an impressive victory against Division 2 opposition, Welton & Brough, in the Holderness Trophy Group. 
It was great credit to groundsman Shaun McKinley that, despite the appalling pre-season weather, he prepared a perfect pitch and outfield that saw over 400 runs scored at Southside, in the ground's first match of the season.
Electing to bat first, Welton & Brough's top order batsmen performed solidly, with a number of partnerships taking the score to 154 for 3 wickets, after 35 overs. Ideally placed to crack on and set an imposing score, the Patrington bowlers did well to restrict the visitors to less than a run a ball in the last ten overs, with the innings finishing on 212 for 7 after the allotted 45 overs - a par score. 
Young and Downey top scored with 42 n.o. and 40 respectively, with six batsmen getting a start, but none going beyond fifty. Youngster Danny Fincham kept excellently behind the stumps, taking two catches, whilst veteran Mark Todd belied his years to take a stunning one handed catch at gully to dismiss the impressive looking opener Gittins, for the first Southside wicket of the season.
Bob Metcalf, the only bowler to complete the maximum 12 overs, bowled very well without any reward, going for just 3.5 runs per over. Youngsters Jed Foster, Liam Murrey and Jack Todd all chipped in with a wicket apiece, ably supported by the more experienced trio of Mike Fox, Jamie McKinley and Will Ineson - the latter bagging a brace of wickets for just seven runs.
After the interval, the home side lost a wicket early on, but thereafter everyone made a start, with an excellent batting display seeing Patrington reach their target with eleven balls and six wickets to spare - in a perfectly timed, panic-free, run chase. 
Bri Butler hit the season's first six at Southside on his way to 12, whilst skipper McKinley (30) and elder statesman Edwards (43) (figures in brackets being runs rather than age!) both batted in typically dominant fashion - with 13 boundaries between them. However, it was Fox (17 n.o.) and the increasingly impressive Fincham whom saw the the home side to victory. Fincham (85 n.o.) 'carried his bat' and formed the backbone of the innings, putting in a superb display of concentration and stroke play, to take the plaudits of his team mates and spectators for a great all-round performance.
McKinley will be looking for more of the same next weekend, for the side's first league match of the campaign, away at Hessle. 

1XI Match Report - Saturday, April 23rd.

25th April 2016

After last week’s season opener at home to Harrogate fell foul to the weather, Patrington travelled to local rivals Hornsea on Saturday in a clash that saw the sides meet again after both were promoted to Division One last term. 

Skipper Stew Guy handed Jacob Duffil his first XI, and club, debut but was missing the likes of Dixon and Buss, and it was in fact the lack of depth in the batting department that saw the 1st XI start the 2016 campaign with defeat. 

Guy won the toss and elected to bowl on a pitch that despite the inclement weather of late looked very good, and youngster Billy Ineson opened the bowling with all-rounder Ashley McKinley. It wasn’t long until McKinley took the first wicket of the year as he clean bowled the dangerous Paul Clappison for just 3. Ineson bowled an impressive spell of 5 overs for just 12 runs, and with the hosts getting off to a good start at 51 for 1, Guy turned to the experience of Glenn Ratcliffe and Craig Foster in an attempt to turn the game in Patringtons favour. 

Ratcliffe had former Beverley Town captain Jonathan Fisher caught at mid-off by Jason McKinley for 29, and Foster ( 2 for 19 from 8 overs) then picked up two huge wickets of Richard Medforth and the dangerous Douglas Griebenhouw, both without scoring, and the latter being cleaned bowled first ball. Ratcliffe followed up with the wicket of Alistair Kirk for 11, and Patrington were well on top. 

Hornsea captain Mark Battye (45) put together some more than useful partnerships with Joe Butterworth (15) and Adam Newington (10) after McKinley (2 for 44) from 12 overs) had returned and picked up the wicket of Dan Dales. It was off spinner Jack Eggett who picked up Battye during a spell of 1 for 17, with Duffil also impressing during a short burst. Ratcliffe returned from the Rugby Ground End and cleaned up the lower order to finish with excellent figures of 5 for 32, his first 1st XI 5 for for 10 years as he continues to prove his worth to the side. Hornsea managed to reach 150 all out from just shy of 44 overs and Patrington were the happier of the two sides at the break. 

The 1st XI’s reply got off to the worst possible start as Marc Pollard was adjudged LBW to Newington (2 for 22) in the first over without scoring. Stew Guy (17), Connor McKinley (22) and Ashley McKinley (22) all made handy contributions at the top of the order, but from 48 for 3, when Ashley was run out, Patrington collapsed to 101 all out with Jason McKinley the only other batsman to register double figures as he hit 16. 

Richard Medforth collected 3 for 11 from his allocated 12 overs as Hornsea competed the win and Patrington took just 6 points. 

Skipper Guy will be expecting a much better performance this week when his 1st XI entertain Osbaldwick at Southside. Many thanks to our matchball sponsor, Danny Gent.

2XI Match Report - Saturday, July 18th.

20th July 2015

Patrington 2nd XI (166 all out off 41 overs) beat Sutton 2nd XI (132 all out off 45 overs) by 34 runs

Following a concerning run of defeats, the club's second team hosted fellow Division 4 East strugglers, Sutton 2nd XI, on a splendidly summery afternoon at Southside. Skipper Shaun McKinley elected to bat first, in the hope his side's mixture of youth and experience, bolstered by the addition of Chairman Jason McKinley (his last 2nd team appearance since late May), would post a competitive total.

Despite a sharp caught and bowled opportunity being missed the very first ball of the Patrington innings, all started well for the home side as the in-form youngster Danny Fincham, along with Jason, took advantage of anything wayward, and moved the score to 30 without loss. With Fincham being unluckily bowled off his pads for a well-crafted 15, the out of form club stalwart, Russ Edwards soon departed after a miss-timed lofted drive.

Jamie McKinley joined his uncle at the crease.  The two J McK's batted with apparent ease and confidence, and at a fair rate, taking the score to 104-2 in the 21st over - with signs that the 2nds would post a highly competitive (250+) total. However, bowler Noble wisely accounted for the related duo, whom were both bowled in quick succession - Jamie for 37 and Jason for 51, his first league fifty of the season.

Thereafter, as oft has been the case this season, wickets then fell at regular intervals, with a string of batsmen falling for single figures. Thankfully, the impressive youngster, Jack Todd, played an innings of patience and maturity, that belied his years, of which his father, Mark, would have been proud. Following a string of well-timed drives, Jack finished on 27 not out, only the fourth batsmen to make double figures, as the innings came to a somewhat premature end; 166 all out in 41 overs.

Whilst Jack brought an air of respectability to the Patrington innings, the home side likely finished at least 50 runs short of a par score, and, at tea, knew that tight bowling would be required to beat the Sutton side.

Opening bowlers, Fox and Jamie McKinley, started well, the latter bowling opener Challis for just 5. Despite the batsmen frequently playing and missing outside the off stump, Sutton moved along to 68-1 off the first 20 overs.  With just 99 runs to get, in 29 overs, the game was Sutton's for the taking.

However, a further wicket for Jamie (2-34), followed by a wicket in two consecutive overs for Dec Precious, switched the momentum in favour of the home side. Bowling an excellent left arm over line, Precious took 2-20, with Dec's second wicket accounting for the dangerous Petfield, for a solid 42 - largely thanks to Jack Todd, whom took a very smart chance at cover point following a well executed cut from the opening batsman. Thereafter, skipper Shaun McKinley turned the screw, as an expectant trio of slips and duo of gullies, finally took a chance, with Edwards snaffling an edge for one of Shaun's three wickets (for just 5 runs!). At the other end, Bob Eldon-Smith bowled tightly (1-6 off 4 overs), with his wily spin accounting for middle-order batsman Nichols. Jack Todd then topped off a match winning display, with 1-15 off 6 overs, to leave the Sutton innings in disarray at 100-9.

A resolute lack wicket pairing, of Dudding (19) and Wood (14 n.o.), took the score to 132, and four overs from a losing draw, before the returning Fox cunningly took the last Sutton wicket, to give Patrington a much needed, and well deserved, 34 run victory.

Next week sees the 2nds away to promotion chasing South Holderness, with Captain McKinley knowing his team must be at their very best to take points off their local rivals.

20th July 2015

Patrington suffered their second defeat of the season on Saturday when they were comprehensively beaten away at third placed Dringhouses. The 1st XI are now just one point above the York side, and the defeat was made even harder to take as news filtered through that leaders Pocklington had slipped up against Driffield.

The home side won the toss and elected to bowl first on what looked a flat and quick wicket. Jordy Critchley and Marc Pollard opened the batting and saw off some excellent new ball bowling, the pair adding 50 for the first wicket for the second week running before the latter was dismissed for 17 having earlier being hit on the helmet by opening bowler Lingard.

Critchley was joined by Connor McKinley and began to look to increase the run rate. Critchley (38) was looking in fine form until he was dismissed by veteran Michael Kenyon and Connor soon followed. Returning skipper Stew Guy joined the inform Ashley McKinley then set about posting a competitive total. The pair batted extremely well and McKinley despatched Kenyon over the pavilion and into oncoming traffic in a typically aggressive 62, Guy was also in good touch as he posted a classy 29. With Patrington looking to post around 230, Ratcliffe, Andy Guy, Eggett and Billy Ineson all fell in quick succession and the 1st XI finished on a slightly below par 200 for 8 from their allocated 45 overs.

In reply, Patrington had no answer to opener Andrew Simpson who put on a partnership of over 130 with Evans before both fell for 69. Guy rotated his bowlers in an attempt to find some wickets, with Critchley, Ineson, Ratcliffe, A. McKinley all bowling spells without reward.

It was only when Jack Eggett and James Nettleton were introduced to the attack that Patrington managed to make the contest slightly less one sided. The pair took two wickets each and Nettleton was particularly impressive.

Patrington welcome Woodhouse Grange to Southside this weekend in what is now a huge game as they look to get their promotion push back on track.

20th July 2015

Patrington 2nd XI 100 all out

Hessle 102 for 1
Another tough weekend for Shaun McKinley's 2nd XI saw them succumb to another defeat, this time at the hands of 5th placed Hessle. The game took place at Brandesburton, due to Hessle's ground being unavailable for the day.
McKinley won the toss and elected to bat, which meant openers Danny Fincham and Matty Roberts had the unenviable task of seeing off the accurate and dangerous Hessle opening attack. Neither could muster any joy - Roberts being the unlucky player, who was out to a blinding catch by Hessle's captain Broadley at mid-wicket. Russ Edwards and Will Ineson fought hard at numbers 3 and 4, but it wasn't until Chris Smith, batting at 7, came in and a Patrington player reached double figures. Smith hit 2 x fours in his usual style, but the visitors found themselves at 60 for 9 off the first 30 overs - 32 of those runs coming in extras. The unlikely pairing of Declan Precious and Dave Turley then shared in the innings most productive stand, as they put on 40 runs for the last wicket - a partnership which spanned 12 overs. Precious stood out alone, with his knock of 34 including 6 x fours - to give the hosts some jitters. It was a fine effort from the young man, who showed great temperament and composure whilst at the crease.
After tea, Hessle's openers Nicholls (61) and Page (31 not out) made light work of the chase - with Ineson being the only Patrington bowler to experience any joy, when he trapped Nicholl's LBW - an audacious appeal and an equally audacious decision by the umpire, who later explained that Nicholl's had crouched down, resulting in the bruise on his abdomen being worthy of a raised finger. If you don't ask, you don't get! Even Ineson shared a smile, as he was congratulated. If the ball was going to hit the bails, then one assumes it was the bails of straw, three fields away!
Patrington still remain above the drop zone, but they will have to start picking up points quickly, as chasing Hornsea won their encounter against Sutton.

20th July 2015

Patrington 1st XI picked up a further 30 points at home to Driffield on Saturday as they continue to apply pressure to league leaders Pocklington in Division 2.

With Stew Guy absent, stand in skipper Marc Pollard won the toss and elected to bowl first, a tactic that has served the side so well this year. The decision was justified when Craig Foster took three quick wickets to reduce the visitors to 22 for 3. Foster bowled a superb spell, conceding just 9 runs from his seven overs and was indebted to Andy Guy for his opening wicket due to smart catch at cover to remove captain Carl Busfield for just 1. 

Youngster Billy Ineson (1 for 35) also joined the party removing the dangerous Andrew Chapman without scoring, with Ash McKinley taking a superb one handed catch as Patrington turned the screw and Driffield fell to 29 for 4. Veteran John Wooley was attempting to hold the innings together and was given some support by James Richardson (25) and Grant Hutton (20) as Driffield attempted to post a competitive total. James Nettleton bowled an impressive spell and was unlucky not to pick up a wicket with a chance going down at slip, and it was the introduction of Jack Eggett and Ashley McKinley into the attack that meant the Patrington continued to take wickets.

Eggett picked up the key wicket of Wooley for 53 thanks to yet another sharp catch from Jordy Critchley, and from 105 for 5 Driffield collapsed to 109 all out with Eggett picking up 3 for 16 and McKinley finished with 3 for 19. Patrington were superb in the field and special mention should go to Connor McKinley who stood in behind the stumps for Guy and was a more than able stand in. 

In reply, Pollard and Critchley added 55 for the first wicket until Pollard was bowled for 16 by leg spinner Hutton (2 for 35). Connor McKinley was his second victim when he was adjudged LBW for 9, and older brother Ashley (20 not out) joined Critchley at the crease and steered Patrington to victory. 

Critchley batted superbly and finished the game with a six to finish on 55 not out as Patrington completed a comprehensive victory and remain in second place in Division 2. Guy will return next week when his side travel to York to face Dringhouses.
