Steeton 200 a/o in 45.3 overs

Guiseley 121 a/o in 32.2 overs

The coronavirus epidemic has been controlled enough for the government to allow recreational cricket to commence, but unfortunately no-one had mentioned this to the weather gods, who delivered a wet morning. In the afternoon play did commence and the 2020 season was underway. Steeton skipper Gary Boulton won the toss and decided to bat first, but were soon to regret the decision as they shuttered to 3 wicket down with only 5 runs on the board. Steeton debutante Matthew Nutter (3) not getting the start he would have hoped for! The rush of wickets was halted by a solid 90-run 4th wicket stand between Cameron Knowles (35) & Steve Pearson. Cameron scored his 35 runs from 64 deliveries with 3 boundaries. Steve Pearson went on to complete his half-century and was joined by Tom Stead in a 37-run 5th wicket partnership before Tom departed for a quick-fire 26 runs from 27 deliveries with a six & 3 fours. A quick shuttering of late middle order wickets saw Steeton tumble to 137 runs for 7 wickets, but Steve Pearson was not out and had moved into the 70s. Joined by Adam Hardwick he moved through the 80s and into the 90s. Having added 61 runs for a great 8th wicket partnership both batsmen were out in quick succession, but not before Steve Pearson had completed a memorable century. Steve Pearson had scored a fantastic 102 runs from 119 deliveries with 13 boundaries and Adam’s (14) dogged defence had played an important subordinate role. The innings was quickly wound-up with Steeton having scored 200 runs all out in 45.3 overs.

In reply quick bowler Josh Gill gave Steeton the early breakthrough as he broke the opening stand with the Guiseley score on just 19 runs. Josh also took the 2nd Guiseley wicket and finished with 2 wickets for 31 runs, courtesy catches taken by Cameron Knowles & Harris Rowlett. However it was the introduction of new-signing Matthew Nutter, which turned this match firmly in the favour of Steeton. Matthew tore through the Guiseley batting and finished with a fantastic haul of 8 wickets for 26 runs from 11.2 overs, with catches taken by Bradley Akrigg, keeper John Akrigg, Cameron Knowles, as well as a return catch from his own bowling. Great Debut Matt! Fielding points went to Bradley Akrigg & Matt Nutter. Guiseley were all out for 121 runs in 32.2 overs. A curious topsy-turvy game with the opening batsman taking 8 wickets and the opening bowlers scoring a century! Steeton (19 points) beat Guiseley (5 points) by 79 runs in the first match of this shortened season.

My joint Men-of-the-Match are Stephen Pearson & Matthew Nutter.

25 July 2020 - 1st XI v Tong Park Esholt (A) - Lost by 102 runs (6-20)

Tong Park Esholt 231 a/o in 48 overs

Steeton 129 runs a/o in 33.4 overs

Steeton’s skipper Gary Boulton won the toss and decided to field first at Esholt. Last week’s heroes were once again quickly into the action as wickets for Steve Pearson and Matt Nutter left Tong Park at 40 runs with 2 wickets down in the 17th over. Both finished with 3 wickets each: Steve took 3 wickets for 41 runs from 14 overs with a catch taken by Harris Rowlett; and Matt took 3 wickets for 58 runs from 13 overs with a catch taken by Paul Hardwick. After the initial breakthrough Adam Hardwick (1-21) & Bradley Akrigg (1-36) clean bowled the next two batsmen, including Tong Park’s top-scorer Patel (50). A 2nd spell by opening quickie Josh Gill (1-33) brought him some success with a wicket caught by keeper John Akrigg. Bradley Akrigg & Matt Nutter were awarded the fielding points, Matt having a direct-hit run out. Tong Park were all out for 231 runs in 48 overs.

Steeton’s reply began disastrously with 3 wickets down in the first 5 overs with just 9 runs on the board. The procession of wickets was slowed by last week’s centurian Steve Pearson (13), who added 23 runs for the 3rd wicket with veteran opener John Akrigg. Alas no heroics today for Steve! John Akrigg stood firmly as he and Tom Stead continued the resistance, taking the Steeton score to 77 runs for 3 wickets in 20 overs. But 1 run later Steeton lost 2 Akrigg’s in consecutive balls. John Akrigg departed for an excellent 45 runs from 66 deliveries with 1 six & 7 fours and 10 runs later Tom Stead was also out for 22 runs from 33 deliveries with 4 boundaries. Steeton had crashed to 88 runs for the loss of 7 wickets in the 24th over. Skipper Gary Boulton (17*) showed stubborn late resistance and was well supported by last man Josh Gill (11), but Steeton succumbed to 129 runs all out in 33.4 overs. Steeton (6 points) lost to Tong Park (20 points) by 102 runs.

John Akrigg is my Man-of-the-Match for Steeton

1 August 2020 - 1st XI v New Rover (H) - Won by 6 wickets (20-5)

New Rover 177 a/o in 45 overs

Steeton 180-4 in 38.1 overs

Steeton’s skipper Gary Boulton won the toss and chose to field first at Summerhill Lane. The decision to ask New Rover to bat first was justified by his bowlers who skittled New Rover all out for 177 runs in 45 overs. Chief destroyer was once again new recruit Matt Nutter who finished with a fantastic haul of 6 wickets for 50 runs from his 15 overs, with catches taken by Cameron Knowles, Jack Luxton & two by keeper John Akrigg. Also amongst the wickets was Steve Pearson with a brace. Steve took 2 wickets for 31 runs with a 2nd catch by Cameron Knowles and a 3rd for keeper John Akrigg. With his first bowl of the season skipper Gary Boulton (1-31) took a single wicket courtesy of a stumping by John Akrigg…and Bradley Akrigg (1-22) also collected a single wicket with a catch by Gary Boulton. Fielding points went to Jack Luxton & Steve Pearson. New Rover had been limited to a below par 177 runs all out in 45 overs.

In reply Steeton are indebted to Harris Rowlett, who was called to the crease early and then batted through unbeaten. Harris finished with an excellent 70* runs not out from 102 deliveries with 2 sixes & 8 fours. Harris shared a 2nd wicket partnership of 31 runs with opener Matt Nutter, who made the major contribution of 27 runs from just 24 balls with 1 six & 4 fours. Harris went on to share an 89-run 3rd wicket partnership with Cameron Knowles, who contributed 42 runs from 58 deliveries with 1 six & 3 fours. James Robinson chipped in with an unbeaten 16* runs as Steeton knocked-off the runs with relative ease…scoring 180 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in 38.1 overs. Steeton (20 points) beat New Rover (5 points) by 6 wickets.

Matthew Nutter & Harris Rowlett are my joint Men-of-the-Match

18 July 2020 - 2nd XI v Addingham (A) - Won by 5 wickets (20-4)

Addingham 136 a/o in 38.1 overs

Steeton 138-5 in 36 overs

Steeton won the toss and asked Addingham to bat first on a damp track. Opening bowler David Wynn (1-23) got Steeton off to a great start with their opening partnership broken before it had reached double-figures, with a catch taken by Elliott Wilson. Addingham were steadied by ex-Steeton player James Freebury (28) before Ewan Johnston took 2 wickets and reduced them to 52-3 in 14 overs. The introduction of Luke Watson to the bowling attack brought instant reward as he took 2 wickets in his first over, with a catch by Will Smith…and Addingham stumbled to 89 runs with 5 wickets down. Steeton are flush with talented bowlers and the introduction of off-spinner Aatif Modak also brought instant rewards with 2 wickets in his very first over and Addingham were struggling at 90 runs with 7 wickets down. Both Luke & Aatif continued to bowl tight and Luke Watson finished with 3 wickets for 21 runs, but pick of the bowlers was Aatif Modak, who finished with 4 wickets for 20 runs from 9.1 overs. Elliott Wilson and Will Smith were awarded fielding points as Addingham were all out for 136 runs in 38.1 overs.

In reply both Steeton opening batsmen were back in the tent with the score on 27 runs with only Elliott Wilson (17) managing double figures…sometimes knocking off low totals can prove a more tricky proposition than you might expect! James Robinson stopped the slide with a solid knock of 31 runs from 55 deliveries with a six & 4 fours. James shared a 30-run 3rd wicket partnership with Jack Luxton, who contributed 16 runs. When James departed with the Steeton score on 72-4 it was youngster Wilf Robert who took up the mantle and he scored an unbeaten 31* runs from 54 deliveries with 4 boundaries. It was Wilf’s partnership with Luke Watson which firmly snatched the game from Addingham. Wilf shared a 63-run 5th wicket stand with Luke, who contributed 28 runs from 36 deliveries with 4 boundaries. Steeton passed the Addingham target comfortably with 9 overs and 5 wickets to spare. Steeton had scored 138 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in 36 overs. Steeton (20 points) beat Addingham (4 points) by 5 wickets. Great start to this short season for both Saturday teams.

My joint Men-of-the-Match are Luke Watson & Aatif Modak

25 July 2020 - 2nd XI v Olicanian (H) - Lost by 6 runs (9-19)

Olicanian 183 a/o in 45 overs

Steeton 177-9 in 45 overs

Steeton lost the toss and Olicanian chose to bat first at Summerhill Lane. Olicanian lost wickets regularly, but were held together by opener Hamilton (75). Pick of the bowlers was Luke Watson who ripped through the middle-order and collected 3 wickets for 18 runs from 6 overs with a catch for veteran keeper Julian Higginson. After a wicketless opening spell Ewan Johnston returned for a 2nd spell which polished of the tail with alacrity as he finished with 3 clean-bowled wickets for 32 runs from 11 overs. Jack Luxton (2-56) was also impressive as he collected 2 wickets including the initial breakthrough courtesy of a catch by keeper Julian Higginson. David Wynn (1-21) had a catch taken by Luke Watson and James Robinson (1-24) took the important wicket of Hamilton courtesy of a catch by skipper David Robinson. A fielding point was awarded to James Robinson and Olicanian finished with 183 runs all out in exactly 45 overs…a total which may well have been reduced if all the offered chances had been accepted.

Steeton’s reply began badly with both young opening batsmen back in the tent and only 11 runs on the board. The innings was steadied by James Robinson who shared a good 57-run 3rd wicket partnership with Jack Luxton who contributed 16 runs from 28 deliveries with 2 boundaries. James Robinson continued his great progress and completed a half-century as he found good support from Will Smith. James & Will looked as though they were taking the game away from Olicanian as they added 55 runs for the 4th wicket, but unfortunately both were out within 2 runs. James Robinson had scored a fine 76 runs from 96 deliveries with 14 boundaries and Will Smith contributed 14 runs from 39 deliveries with 2 boundaries. Luke Watson was defiant, but was losing partners as the required run rate was rising. Luke was the last man to get out…caught for 30 runs from 34 deliveries with 2 boundaries. Steeton finished with 177 runs with 9 wickets down in their 45 overs…a tantalising 6 runs short of the Olicanian target. Steeton (9 points) lost to Olicanian (19 points) by 6 runs.

James Robinson is my Man-of-the-Match for Steeton

1 August 2020 - 2nd XI v Burley-in-Wharfedale (A) - Lost by 115 runs (3-20)

Burley-in-Wharfedale 224-4 in 45 overs

Steeton 109 a/o in 29 overs

Steeton skipper David Robinson won the toss and chose to field first at Hodson Park. Steeton found wickets hard to take and Burley had progressed to 73 before a run out by David Wynn broke the opening partnership. Off-spinner Aatif Modak earned a brace of wickets with his 13 overs costing 55 runs as he collected 2 wickets with a catch taken by David Wynn. Skipper David Robinson (1-44) took the only other wicket to fall as Burley closed with an impressive 224 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in their 45 overs. For Burley opener Sam Fox scored 122*.

In reply Steeton were unable to construct solid partnerships as Burley had early. Steeton had an opening stand of 33 runs between Elliott Wilson (16) & Aatif Modak (25). Elliott scored his 16 runs from 23 deliveries with 2 boundaries before being given out LBW and Aatif Modak scored his 25 runs from 18 deliveries with 6 boundaries before being run out. After this opening pairing despite a strong looking batting line-up, Steeton lost wickets regularly and only top-scorer Oliver Gledhill (34)  managed double figures. Oliver scored his 34 runs from 40 deliveries with 5 boundaries. For Burley Lewis Morgan took 7-35. In just 29 overs Steeton were all out with only 109 runs. Steeton (3 points) lost to Burley-in-Wharfedale (20 points) by 115 runs.

19 July 2020 - 3rd XI v Pool (A) - Won by 4 wickets (19-7)

Pool 166-9 in 40 overs

Steeton 170-6 in 38.1 overs

Steeton 3rd XI travelled to Pool hoping to make it 3 out of 3 for our senior teams on this opening match of the curtailed 2020 season. Skipper Mark Chapman won the toss and asked Pool to bat first. A great effort by the Steeton lads saw Pool restricted to 166 runs for 9 wickets in their 40 overs. Of the 6 bowlers used none ended wicketsless. Pick of the bowlers was Jack Luxton, who broke the opening partnership and whose 7 overs conceded just 17 runs as he finished with 2 wickets, with a catch taken by keeper Max Hibbert. Excellent figures also for Tom Meakin, playing his first game since 2016…Tom took 2 wickets for 20 runs from 8 overs with a further 2 catches for keeper Max Hibbert. With 2 clean-bowled scalps the experienced James Yeadon (2-38) was also in fine form. Will Smith (1-35) removed Pool’s top-scorer, Gallagher (54), courtesy of a catch by Jack Luxton. Youngsters Luke Spragg (1-19) brought keeper Max Hibbert’s catch tally to 4; and Wilf Roberts (1-28) took a return catch from his own bowling. Tom Meakin & Jack Luxton were both awarded fielding points.

In reply Steeton are indebted to the batting talents of Jack Luxton, who calmly scored an unbeaten 67* runs from  108 deliveries with 2 sixes & 6 fours. Jack shared a 39-run 2nd wicket partnership with Will Smith, who contributed 26 runs from 29 balles faced with 1 six & 3 fours. Jack went on to add 27 runs for the 3rd wicket with Max Hibbert (10), before adding 29 runs for the 5th wicket with skipper Mark Chapman, who contributed 18 runs from 24 deliveries with 3 boundaries. When Mark departed Steeton were wobbling at 116 runs for the loss of 6 wickets and a further 50 runs required. However coming to the crease was Chris Luxton…and together father & son saw Steeton comfortably passed the winning post. Chris scored an unbeaten 21* runs from 30 balls with 3 boundaries and shared an unbroken 54-run 7th wicket stand with his son Jack. Steeton had scored 170 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in 38.1 overs. A fantastic opening weekend for Steeton (19 points) who beat Pool (7 points) by 4 wickets.

Jack Luxton is my Man-of-the-Match

26 July 2020 - 3rd XI v Calverley St Wilfrids (A) - Won by 103 runs (19-3)

Steeton 163-6 in 40 overs

Calverley St Wilfrids 60 a/o in 23.1

With 2 defeats for the Saturday teams it was left to the 3rd XI to try to restore some pride for a wounded SCC. They travelled to Victoria Park in Calverley with a strong young side with two father & son combinations: stand-in skipper James Yeadon and his son Ben and youngster Luke Spragg has brought along his dad, Neil Spragg! James Yeadon  lost the toss and was asked to bat first. Steeton opened with Will Smith & Aatif Modak and together they added 29 runs for the 1st wicket before Will departed for 15 runs from 25 deliveries with 2 boundaries. Will was replaced by Jack Luxton and along with Aatif they added a solid 53 runs for the 2nd wicket partnership before Aatif was caught for a fine 38 runs from 53 deliveries with 7 boundaries. Jack Luxton also fell shortly after having scored 24 runs from 32 balls faced with 2 sixes & 2 fours. Max Hibbert played a fantastic innings and at the close was unbeaten with 44* runs not out from 81 deliveries with 7 boundaries. Max shared a 20-run 5th wicket stand with Harry Rowe (10) and a good unbroken 7th wicket partnership of 36 runs with Luke Spragg (7*). Steeton finished with an impressive 163 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in their 40 overs.

In reply Steeton tore into the Calverley batting line-up. Jake Hill (1-13) made the initial breakthrough but then, with 3 wickets each, Jack Luxton & Luke Spragg ripped through the middle-order. Jack Luxton finished with 3 wickets for 12 runs from 5 overs…and Luke Spragg took 3 wickets for just 9 runs from 6 overs with catches taken by Will Smith and his dad Neil in the slips. Harry Rowe (2-9) continued the rout with 2 wickets in 2 overs with a catch taken by Ben Yeadon and the coup-de-grace was delivered by Aatif Modak (1-2) with a 2nd catch for Will Smith. Will Smith & Aatif Modak were awarded fielding points. Calverley had been dismantled for 60 runs all out in 23.1 overs. Steeton (19 points) beat Calverley (3 points) by 103 runs.

2 August 2020 - 3rd XI v New Rover (H) - Won by 6 wickets (19-3)

New Rover 93 a/o in 39.1 overs

Steeton 96-4 in 21 overs

Our 1st XI had defeated New Rover’s 1st XI on Saturday, now it was the turn of the 3rds for the encore. Steeton found out late that they would be without skipper Mark Chapman who was awaiting a Covid-19 all clear. James Yeadon duly deputised, won the toss and asked New Rover to bat first. Jake Hill did early damage and finished with remarkable figures of 5 overs, 4 maidens, 2 wickets for just 1 run, with catches taken by Harry Rowe. Jack Luxton (1-20) nipped out the other New Rover opener. The good start was compounded by Johnny Atherton, who also collected a brace of wickets…his 2 wickets coming from 5 overs and costing 11 runs, with catches taken by keeper Max Hibbert and a 3rd catch for Harry Rowe. Harry was awarded a fielding point. Will Smith also took 2 wickets for 11 runs, including a second catch by keeper Max Hibbert. Pick of the bowlers however was James Nowell, who finished with 3 wickets for 19 runs from his 8 overs courtesy of a stumping by Max Hibbert & a catch taken by Ben Yeadon. New Rover had almost batted through their 40 overs, but were all out for 93 runs in 39.1 overs.

Steeton’s reply was emphatic as they set about the meagre New Rover target. Opening batsman Jack Luxton top-scored with 30 runs scored from 45 deliveries with 2 sixes before he was stumped…and his opening partner Archie Smith scored 29 runs from 40 balls with 6 boundaries. Max Hibbert (10*), Ben Yeadon (14) & Johnny Atherton (8*) saw Steeton comfortably home having scored 96 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in just 21 overs. All of the wickets fell to New Rover’s left arm spinner Albert Taylor (4-14), who is just 12 year old…clearly a name to remember! Steeton (19 points) beat New Rover (3 points) by 6 wickets.
