Spofforth win Nidderdale U7s Tournament

This year we had 11 sides taking part with North Stainley, Spofforth, Ouseburn A, Ripley, Harrogate, Ouseburn B, Pannal A, Follifoot, Pannal B, Bilton and Knaresborough competing to win the shield won by Studley Royal in 2016. The sides were organised into 3 groups – Bairstow, Root and Rashid – with the two best winners of the groups playing in the final. After a great deal of competitive cricket, Spofforth, Harrogate and Knaresborough came top of their respective groups but the finalists were Spofforth and Harrogate who both achieved maximum points from their fixtures. In the final Spofforth batted first in front of a supportive crowd and posted a total of 244. Despite some good cricket, Harrogate could only end up with 228 which meant the shield went to Spofforth. However, all teams who took part can be proud of their efforts.

As always, the tournament was played in a great spirit and it was really pleasing to see everybody getting on so well and sharing a common love of the game. Many thanks to the volunteers who helped on the day and thanks again to Ken Coad and Mick Dawson for their support of junior cricket.

U7s 2017

Nidderdale U7s Tournament – Sunday June 11th

Once again we have the great pleasure of hosting the Nidderdale Junior Cricket League Under 7s Tournament. This year it takes place on Sunday June 11th and we are expecting over 10 sides to take part. In the past, it has been great fun with the Champions title being won by different clubs each year. Last year, it was Studley Royal but who will get their name on the Shield this year?

Besides the cricket, there will be refreshments for all the family.

We can’t guarantee the weather but we will guarantee that the cricket will be enjoyable.
