SEWERBY’S young Academy side took the first cricket honours of the season when they won the Evening League Division Three Cup final last Friday.

NORTH Frodingham won the toss and put Sewerby into bat, a decision they would soon regret.

The opening batsmen Beasley and Coultas put on 98 for the first wicket with a mixture of hard hitting and quick singles to put Sewerby on course for a big total with Lewis Beasley reaching 54 before getting run out.

Ian Pearson and Dom Warters both reached double figures as Sewerby reached a respectable 148.

In reply North Frodingham got off to a bad start losing the hard hitting Matty Richardson to a contender for catch of the season Ian Pearson catching one handed deep on the boundary, for just seven runs.

J Grieveson then compiled a neat 40 runs. Sam Wragg removed three of the batsmen, stumping two off the bowling of Harry Burton and one off Ernie Moorehouse who bowled his five overs for just 19 runs claiming two wickets.

Harry Hudson claimed the wicket of Turner with a sharp run out.

A good fielding display on a sunny night in front of a large crowd brought the honours back to the clifftop club.

Man of the match was Lewis Beasley for his 54 and 1-22 and the Champagne moment to Ian Pearson for his catch.

Steve and Sam Wragg played the game in memory of Steve’s mum and Sam and Tom’s Nana who died the day before and to win was a bonus.
