Dozens enjoy Kwik Cricket festival

Sewerby hosted the latest round of the Derwent Valley Under 9s Kwik Cricket mini tournament on Sunday.

Juniors from Cayton, Cloughton, Flixton, Pickering, Mulgrave, Scarborough, Sewerby and Wykeham played three games each and the orange balls were flying for fours and sixes to all parts.

There were frantic run outs, stumps being knocked over, shouts of joy and high fives, as more than 60 youngsters were involved at the end of National Cricket Week.

As Scarborough and Mulgrave merged into one team, Sewerby were able to field two teams.

Meanwhile, Sewerby U11s travelled to Driffield.

Under rain-laden skies, Driffield posted a large total of 310, only losing one wicket to a great catch from Isaac Coates, making a lot of ground, running in from long off.

In reply, Sewerby’s first two pairings were very successful. Callum Hatton made 13 not out and man of the match made Freddie Gunning 20 not out.

Halfway through the innings, Sewerby were four runs ahead by comparison.

Three tight overs put the pressure on the next pair, and Josh Walker benifited with three wickets in the 12th over.

Undeterred Emily Asquith crashed three fours before being bowled by Walker in the last over, giving him match winning figures of 4-8 from three overs and Driffield a 23-run victory.
