Beeford 1st XI travelled to Welton on Sunday in a York Eastern Conference Division Three game.

In a game affected by rain Beeford won the toss and elected to field. Atight start to the game saw them concede only 19 runs off the first nine overs before rain stopped play. An early tea was taken and the game was reduced to 31 overs per side.

Beeford continued to ensure Welton posted a low total with Huby (3-19) and Dunning (2-15) the pick of the bowlers.

Welton completed their innings on 99/9 off the 31 overs, Beeford unable to take the final wicket.

After a quick turnaround Beeford’s run chase started with Turner and Cook taking to the wicket. A good start saw the opening pair take the score to 36 before Turner was caught and bowled.

Cook and Dunning saw Beeford home with a partnership of 67, as they finished the game 103/1 with Cook scoring an unbeaten 62.

A good all-round performance seeing Beeford to the top of the league,
