Hull Zingari Cricket Club



Sad to hear of the demise of Lord Brian Rix CBE DL. He played for us in the 1950s and sent a message of congratulations when we celebrated our centenary year in 1996. Brian was President of the Lords Taverners in 1970 and a Member of the MCC and Yorkshire CCC. RIP.

Two big wins for Firsts and Seconds . Firsts needed that win at Goole Town, lifted us 18 points clear of Bolton Percy who lost to Driffield Seconds ( thanks Driff!). Wilko celebrates 20 years as a one-club man this year and returning from his hols he took 7-21 in a great spell as Goole were shot out for  72 in the 34th over with only Neil Foster 27no reaching double figures.Callum took 2-21 in 10 overs and no byes again and 2 catches for keeper Alex and then Jack S hit 36  and Guy 15no as we won by 7 wickets with Ali hitting the winning runs  in the 27th  over. Another big game away  at Heworth on  Saturday.

Our keeper Alex tops the number of catches ( 19) in Premier Division YDSCL in his first season with us.Good lad.

Seconds had an 8 wicket win over South Holderness at Chants with TJ hitting a magnificent 95 not out, well supported by yet another fine unbeaten  knock from Marvellous Marv  49 no and 17 from Dodger.Earlier captain Simon took 5-36 and Hydey 2-30  in their score of 187-7 and we won with 14 overs left. Last league  game of the season on  Saturday when Sutton on Hull FIRSTS are our visitors as we look to finish in  4th place in the league. 1pm start, so why not come down and watch Hull FC at Wembley and  Hull City v Man Utd  on TV in the lounge  and enjoy a drink and some food with us as well as seeing  some cricket  ?

Hydey and Knowlesey top wicket takers in Division 2 Holderness League YDSCL with 55 between them.

Thirds  travelled  out to league leaders North Ferriby    Seconds    and went down by 3 wickets in a creditable performance. Skipper Thommo  56, his eldest son Ben 36, 12 year old keeper Tom Douglas 20 no , Michael Obridge 16 and  15 year old Joe Sharp 12no all batted well in our score of 156-6. Jason then bowled a terrific spell of 10 overs 8 maidens 1 for 4 and Joe Sharp completed a fine game with 3-26 and there were also wickets for youngsters Nathan Johnson, Jamie Key and Luke Grimes.Ferriby won with 5 overs left with Hodson 80 and Astill 39no top scoring.

Another learning curve for our young guns which will only go to stand them in good stead in the future and further adds to our decision to play youngsters in the team from our strong junior set-up .Home to Sutton THIRDS on Sunday with 1pm start.

Keeper Rich Morton second in Conference Division 3 of YDSCL  with 5 catches. Has he dropped one yet off his son Richard's bowling ??!!

Thanks to ECB/Gray-Nicholls for gift of Kwik Cricket set for early booking of our  successful Open Day supported by Waitrose Willerby

Congrats to Callum Hellwig on his selection for York and District Under 21s v MCC at Beverley Well deserved Cal..9 overs 2 maidens 1-28 v MCC. YDSCL lost by 20 runs..


 Congrats to Matthew Bunn and Vikki on the birth of their daughter Emily Louise. Steve and Jill Bunn very happy grandparents !

John Fuller of Cricket Yorkshire has put some great pix of  our home game against Easingwold @cricketyorkshire

Seems to have enjoyed Joy's steak pie and his visit to East Yorkshire despite the rain. Good to see you John, let us know when you are coming again and we will organise some sunshine !

Congrats to Tom Powdrell , Tharian and Alex Markham on their selection for East Yorkshire Under 11 representative side. That makes it 15 of our juniors who have been selected for rep sides this year -- a unique achievement and great credit to Steve Bunn and all our coaching volunteers.

Thanks to everyone who helped make the club Open Day such a success in glorious weather. Supported by the ECB and Waitrose, 282 people attended during the day including 60 youngsters from Hornsea CC, Patrington CC and Beverley CC in our Under 9 Kwik Cricket Festival and  many former cricketers  although it would have been nice to see more of our  senior players down supporting the day which raised around £300 for our club and the East Yorkshire Junior Cricket League. Maurice Atkinson's team won the Veterans Comrades Cup beating Mike Ulyatt's ( older!) side by 4 wickets in an enjoyable game. Richard Ingram received the cup and umpires Ken Featherston and Keith Hulland judged Martin Watkin as Player of the Match.Thanks to Andy Dawson, Commercial Director of Yorkshire CCC, for arranging for the County Championship Trophy to be on view during the day.

Sam Elstone scored 50 not out for East Yorkshire Under 13s against Yorkshire B at Londesborough Park. Sam is one of our club's youngest-ever senior debutants and has  scored 722 runs for our junior and senior sides,Hymers College and East Yorkshire representative sides this season.Exciting talent..Devastating news for him though as Sam has broken his arm and will miss the rest  of the season.

Well done 12 year old Tom Douglas who has been selected for Yorkshire B side, joining a select band of our juniors who have been chosen to represent the White Rose over the years. He scored 58 for them  including 4 sixes against North Yorkshire at Scarborough when they lost by just one run.  He then scored another half century in a fine win over Lincolnshire.  Wicketkeeper  Tom made his senior debut for the club against Hull Seconds and took two fine catches behind the stumps in a confident display. The  tour of Sri Lanka with his school Hull Collegiate should have  given him good experience.

Our Under 13s and our Under 15s both lost their respective East Yorkshire Cup Finals. The Under 15s went down to Cottingham by just 10 runs at Sutton CC.Missing several key players and suffering four injuries in the field it was a big disappointment after all the hard work the boys had done in previous games but congrats to Cott.

The Under 13s were also missing key players through holidays and injuries and lost by 8 wickets to a strong Driffield side at Beverley CC.Again it was a big disappoinment but a good learning experience for our 10 and 11 year olds and congrats also to Driff on a well-deserved win.

Congrats to former player David Mitchell on becoming a grandad for the first time, Max William. Now domiciled on the west coast, David tells us that his grandson's mother was born just after David  had played in a Zingari side which beat Hornsea at home in an East Yorkshire Cup league match back in 19 ??!! 

Good to see former Old Hymerians/HullCC paceman Graham Gosling helping out on ground maintenance. Now first team official scorer, putting something back into the game, good man.

Mindless vandalism of Cottingham CC score box. Very generous donation of £400 from our former star Jon Purr, now domiciled in Asia, towards repair bill. Good man JP. #cmonzingers.
