Foss Evening League

Disappointingly, the top flight of the Foss League saw only two matches played, with Pocklington and Westow unable to raise sides against Dunnington and Woodhouse Grange respectively.

Champions Stamford Bridge claimed victory over Heworth. Veteran bowler Des Healey ripped apart the Heworth batting with 4-6 as the visitors were restricted to 61-7 in 16 overs. Dan Walton did his best to keep his side afloat with 3-15 but Will Parker (27 not out) saw Bridge home by six wickets with 16 balls remaining.

In division two, Simon Lazenby (5-13) took the first five-wicket haul of the season, plus two wickets each for Neil Pratt and Rich Readman, allowed Bubwith to restrict Yapham to 69-9; Yapham skipper Jack Holman making 21. Readman then made 24 and Charlie Lambert made 19 as Bubwith won by seven wickets, despite Scott Hardwick’s two wickets.

In division three, a quartet of Heworth Colts bowlers claimed two wickets to see Melbourne rolled over for 76 with only Tim Blackmore (27) making double figures for the visitors. Youngster Freddie Coughlin (30 not out) carried his bat and combined in an unbeaten third-wicket partnership of 66 with Greg Sykes (36 not out from 32 balls) to see the Colts to victory; Couglin sealing the match with a six.

Dunnington Academy’s Eshan Malhotra put in an all-round performance leaving his side top of the embryonic table.

Malhotra (62 not out) and former York City footballer Johnny Andrew (33) led the Academy to 132-6. Ovington then struggled to 95-7, with M Asad (39) top-scoring, as Malhotra took 3-14.
