Could Jake Hatton’s hat-trick for Sewerby’s second team on Saturday made him a record breaker?

The 13-year-old took three wickets in three balls and it is thought that makes him the youngest player to take a hat-trick in a senior match for the club.

Beckett League secretary Simon Dobson said: “I’m not sure if this is a league record, but he definitely must be one of the youngest and it’s an outstanding effort.”

The medium-pacer ended with stunning figures of 6-10 as Sewerby moved to the top of the Division Two table after a 49-run win at Ravenscar.
