The Barrett, Wath and Peter Bentley Cups have reached the semi final stage.
The Barrett Cup final will be between Burnt Yates and Boroughbridge and Staveley. Burnt Yates are having a fine season and are on the hunt for both League and cup glory. They currently stand in top spot in Division 3 and promotion is a real possibility. Now they have a cup final too. Batting first, opponents Thornton Watlass made 109/9 off their 16 overs. Andrew Cooper 34, Guy Smith 20 and Matt Day 20. Watlass were pegged back by 5-33 thanks to Carl Brockill. A dominant 82 from Shaun Brockhill really did the damage for Burnt Yates but 2 wickets apiece from Tim Flintoft and Tom Moore wasn’t enough to stop Yates’s charge. It looked like a nervy time though for the Yates batsmen as 5 were sent back to the shed for single figure or no scores (scorecard) Boroughbridge and Staveley make it two finals in two seasons after booking their place in the final with a convincing win over Wath and Melmerby. Since coming together, the two clubs have seen consolidation and success on the pitch and won the Wath Cup in 2015. This time around, Wath batted first and posted 138/7 with contributions throughout the lineup Bobby Hilton 30, Dan Harris 35 and Paul Richardson 25. Wickets for Simon Taylor (2-21), Christian Hendy (2-25) and Paul Norfolk (2-26) chipped away at the strong Wath batting lineup. After a mixup at the top of the order as Luke Flethcer was run out early for 10, Boroughbridge and Staveley consolidated through Jordan Willey (55*) and Mark Burniston (50) and passed the target at 142/2.(scorecard). The final of this competition will be played at Scotton on August 28th at 5pm.
The Wath Cup game between Pateley Bridge 2nds and Sessay 3rds was abandoned after Sessay had made 81/7 including 37 by Alistair McKenzie and 4 wickets for Tom Durrance was replayed on Sunday 21st August. Batting first, PAteley posted a challenging 132-8 off their 20 overs. Rob Light 31, Jos Overend 28 and Tom Durrance 24 chipped in by 4-18 from Aaron Bumby and 3-25 from Dom Atkinson were the pick for the visitors. Sesay didnt really get going in their reply with some tight bowling from the PAteley attack. Dom Atkinson top scored with 23* and Alex Fenwick made 17. 3 wickets for Tom Clements means Pateley go through to the final and will meet Goldsborough 2nds. In the other semi final Goldsborough 2nds continued their good season with an 8 wicket win over Arthington. (scorecard) Goldsborough batted first and made 137/3 with Cian Evans making 55*. 47 from Arthington’s Adam Secret wasnt enough to see his side over the line as Arthington ended on 132/5.
