Sewerby 1sts visited Stamford Bridge on Saturday missing keeper Luke Jennison and opening bowler Aidy Long.

Having won the toss skipper Ben Dobson elected to bat first and together with Lewis Beasley put on 31 for the first wicket before he was out for 15.

Opening bowlers Rhodes and Crutchley then applied the pressure and Sewerby were reduced to 48/5 in 17 overs. A stand between Matt Dandy and Russ Robinson took the score to 77.

Robinson was the ony batsman to look comfortable and Sewerby were all out for 112 - a very poor effort.

Rhodes opened the batting for Bridge in aggressive mood and when the first wicket fell at 25 he’d scored all the runs.

A further wicket fell at 48 but by the time Rhodes was out for 59 the score was 97 and the game all but over. Murphy contributed 33 not out and Bridge reached their target in the 26th over.

Stamford Bridge visited Sewerby in the second round of the League Cup with the hosts looking for revenge for the heavy defeat of the previous day. Ben Dobson again won the toss but this time asked Bridge to take first knock.

Aidy Long was back to open the bowling and he struck in his third over to take the wicket of Harper for 10. Two further wickets fell to Russ Robinson but then a stand of 55 between Beckett and Chaplin took the score to 85.

The reintroduction of Long saw him take four wickets in 15 balls as Stamford Bridge were all out for 115. Long finished with 5-26 and Cam Rusbridge-Burns 3-11.

Sewerby openers Dobson and Lewis Beasley set off at a cracking pace and put on 37 for the first wicket before they slumped to 47/4. Chris Chapman hit a brisk 19, Mike Artley steadily accumulated runs at the other end and he was joined by Matt Dandy.

They levelled the scores in the 35th over and Artley then hit a six towards Sewerby Hall for the winning runs to take Sewerby into the semi final.

Flamborough batted first and excellent bowling from Simon Porter and Jack Newby restricted them to 16 from the first 10 overs.

At the halfway stage the score was 56/2 but Andy Dixon (67) and son Luke (57)then produced a stand of 98 before Sewerby 4ths’ Rob Traves removed both. Flamborough post a formidable score of 188/5.

Sewerby’s reply was positive with openers Newby and James Stubley putting on 56.

Newby made sure Sewerby were always in with a chance but due to mix up with two overs left he was run out for a magnificent 110 as Sewerby fell 15 runs short.
