Patrington bounce back with an

impressive victory at Southside


AFTER A disappointing defeat away to H.I.C.E the previous week, Patrington’s first XI returned to winning ways with a comprehensive 259-run win at home to bottom of the table Hessle on Saturday.

Opting to bat first the hosts got off to a flying start through Connor (61) and Jason McKinley (25). The runs continued to flow and contributions from Pollard (32) and Dixon (29) saw Patrington race to 170-4. A slight wobble saw them reduced to 211-7 with 14 overs still remaining.

However, Patrington, who were now happy with a score over 250, where in for a shock as number 7 Jacob Duffill and number 9 Jack Todd began an onslaught to the visitors’ bowling attack.

First of all, Duffill crashed the ball to all parts before Todd joined the party trading blow for blow. The pair added a sensational 148 runs in the final 14 overs. The explosive Duffill smashed his way to a first ever century in just 48 balls, finishing 106 not out, hitting 17 fours and three huge sixes. Todd would finish unbeaten on 50 from just 28 balls in a truly amazing partnership to propel the first eleven to a record high of 359 for 7.

The visitors’ reply never got going thanks to two wickets in the opening over from Jack Todd (2-17) and it was now just a case of could the hosts bowl out their opponents. Stubborn resistance came from young Jack Rudston (14), whose 66-ball stay at the crease showed real determination.

His skipper Steve Cooper scored 32, but wickets began to tumble. Dixon (2-6) and Jamie McKinley (1-17) got the ball rolling again with Jack Eggett (3-22) the main wicket taker as Patrington closed out an impressive 259run victory as Hessle were sent packing for 100.

Just three games remain with Patrington needing six points to seal promotion with aspirations of a league title dependant on Hull Zingari losing at least one of their remaining two games.

On Sunday, Patrington CC remembered a legend of the club in the now annual Derek Spruce memorial game. A Patrington An XI faced a Steve Spruce Select XI in a highly entertaining and enjoyable match.

Steve’s side batted first hitting 191 for 8 mainly thanks to Grant Van Es (75). Rob Clubley (32) added good support. There was two wickets apiece for Jack Todd and Dale Collinson as the Patrington side used eight bowlers.

In reply Jordy Critchley (72) and Jordan Hart (23) were the only batsmen to get to grips with the impressive bowling from the Steve Spruce XI. Billy Ineson was the main destroyer-in-chief taking three wickets early doors as the Patrington side only managed 150 in reply.

A truly enjoyable day, the club along with Steve would like to thank all of those who participated. And a huge thank you to Helen for the excellent teas, along with a big thank you to umpires Dave and Tim, as well as scorer Philip and to all of those who helped out behind the bar during the day.
