CRICKET DEVELOPMENT 'DROP-IN' EVENT: Together with the YCB, the local Area Cricket Council are to hold a 'drop-in' event at Heworth CC on Tuesday 24th January at Heworth CC starting at 7.30pm.

The draw for the 2017 Hunters T20 Blast has thrown together some great match ups as the sides from Yorkshire League North aim to be the first to get their name on the trophy. The format remains the same as last year with the clubs split into four groups of three, teams in each groups play on a round-robin basis with the group winners progressing to Finals Day at Scarborough's iconic North Marine Road ground on Sunday July 9th.

Group A is likely to be the most hotly contested with two of last season's top four in the Premier League paired together as YORK host SHERIFF HUTTON BRIDGE joining those two will be STAMFORD BRIDGE, who will be looking to avenge the defeat suffered at the hands of Sheriff Hutton Bridge at the same stage last season.

Reigning League champions, and one of the four groups winners last season, HARROGATE visit competition newcomers EASINGWOLD with SCARBOROUGH making up the trio at Back Lane.

ACOMB play host to HULL in a repeat of this stage last last season and will be hopeful of a repeat of thier nine runs victory over the visitors especially as the the third team at The Green is DRIFFIELD TOWN who have arguably the best pedigree of all the teams in the shortest form of the game nnot only reaching the last four in 2016, but also making regular Finals Day appearances in the old Yorkshire League competition. They will travel to ACOMB who will be looking to repeat their thrilling nine runs victory.

Two of last years Finals Day qualifiers meet as YORKSHIRE ACADEMY visit Sandhill Lane to take on WOODHOUSE GRANGE with debutants CLIFTON ALLIANCE joining the pair to complete the final group.

Group matches to be played Sunday 11th June

DAVE RIPPON STANDS DOWN: Osbaldwick CC’s David Rippon has, after 45 years as club secretary, decided it is time to hand over the secretarial reins at the clubs AGM. Dave took over the secretary post when the club entered the YDSCL in 1972 and after over taking Sessay’s Brian Flintoff as the League’s longest serving secretary in 2013 has now decided the time is right to step down. As well as his long standing presence in the York cricket arena, he also played professional rugby league for over 20 years with first York and then Batley, Dave or ‘Rip’ has been a well known face on the York sport scene for well over 50 years.Rip was best known for his leadership skills on the pitch, and as a wicket keeper and lower order batsman and also for his ability to socialise with his many adversaries after the game. Something which is sadly lacking in this more modern era of the game. CLICK HERE FOR FULL STORY

SCARBOROUGH'S JOHN DODDS PICKS UP TOP GROUNDSMAN AWARD - Congratulations to John Dodds  who has picked up the ECB award for the best outground pitches. It is the fourth time in five years that John has collected this award for his work at North Marine Road.

YLN / Y&DSCL UPDATE ON PLAY-CRICKET - Following an agreement reached with the ECB both the Hunters ECB Yorkshire Premier League North, and the Hunters York & District Senior Cricket League (including the Conference) will be using play-cricket for all administration with immediate effect. The play-cricket platform is currently undergoing a raft of changes that will culminate with the facility to collect ground marks etc. We currently use 4 platforms, which is both complicated and in some cases time consuming to both League & Club administrators and play-cricket will allow us bring all these functions together on one website.
