Members from Acomb Cricket Club

Local estate agents Reeds Rains, sponsors of Acomb Cricket Club, is delighted the club has been promoted from Division 1 of the York &District Senior League into the Premier Division.

Acomb Cricket Club beat Sessay into second place on the last day of the season, after getting a winning draw away at Bridlington. Sessay lost the top spot and this allowed Acomb Cricket Club to leap to the top. From 5 points behind going into the last day, they ended up 14 in front.

Richard Sykes Chairman says: “There have been 3 main players standing out a mile from the rest of the team, skipper Andy Tute scored 751 runs, Matthew Dale bagged 669, and his brother Joe achieved 532.

Mark Bell was the top wicket taker with 39, followed by Joe Dale taking 28 wickets.  Congratulations to Georgie Brown who reached a hat-trick against Driffield.

Wicket keeper Richard Sykes took 21 people, supported in the outfield by Martin Pepper and Matthew Dale who both got 15 catches, and Joe Dale who took 13.

Going forwards, the first team is now driven to make the top 6 of the premier league next season which will see them promoted into a new structure for 2016, which will see us playing at better grounds against better opposition.  We’re trying to attract a few new players to the club over the off season to boost the numbers throughout the club, and allow our second team to progress up through the divisions also.

We value the support From Reeds Rains in Acomb who have been fantastic to the club during the season.”
