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.  18 pic in Hull Daily Mail Hotshots supplement Wed 8 June.


Firsts travelled  to old East Yorkshire Cup rivals Pickering hoping to complete the double over them and move out of the bottom two of the YDSCL Premier League.. Well, we finished with a losing draw but we did move out of the bottom two in the league with points gained.

We had Pickering at 118-7 but a 97 run partnership by Alcony ( 49) and Ward (69) took the game away from us and their last 3 wickets added 133. Bunny 4-93 and Wilks 3-39.Sam with a fine 85 supported by skipper Guy 29 and  keeper Alex 27  kept us in with a slight chance of a win but 5 wickets went down for just 16 and it was left to youngsters Chris Clark and Tom Elstone to bat out the overs for the draw and 13 points.

Big game on Saturday with the visit of York Seconds to Chants.

Seconds looked to get back to winning ways when North Cave were  the visitors to Chants in Division 2 of the Holderness League.We were in a winning position at their place a couple of weeks ago when rain curtailed the match but we had no probs at home, winning by 114 runs. Marvellous Marv 75no,Dodger 64, Michael O 28 and Grav 25 in our score of 214 all out( included 5 ducks !). Hydey 4-34,Grav 3-7 and Dodger 3-32 bowled Cave out for exactly 100 in the 37th over. Good to see several of our former juniors in the Cave ranks.Away to Cottingham Firsts on Saturday

Thirds went  out to Eastrington Seconds on Sunday. They conceded the game at Chants in May and could only field 10 players this time. Henry Marsden 75 no, Nathan Johnson 75 and John Morton 56 batted well in our score of 241-3 and then Kempy 2-29, John Morton 4-5, Nathan 2-18 and Alex Thompson 1-0 bowled them out for 71, giving us a 170 run win, vindication of our  club policy of blooding young talent in senior games. Top 2 now a distinct possibility??Tough game this Sunday though, away to Driffield Fifths.

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. On tour of Sri Lanka with his school Hull Collegiate should give him good experience.

The Under 13s had a comprehensive win over Beverley Town,winning by 49 runs. We lost just one wicket as we scored 102 in our 20 overs with Vinny Sagar 15 and Joe Stead 13 both being retired not out.Tom Powdrell, Tommy Atkinson and Tharian then impressed with 2 wickets each as we bowled the Beavers out for 53. in the 14th over.

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.
