TABS 3rd XI rediscovered the winning touch with a tight 6 wicket win over Selby II.
Winning the toss and strangely opting to bowl first Tabs were in trouble early on as Selby posted a
quick 63 for the first wicket. Tight bowling from Jonny Carr (3-40), Arnab
Chakraborty (3-30) and David Hathaway (2-46) on debut supported by excellent
fielding and catching ( 3 great efforts from David Hathaway, John Orrell and
Will Pritchard) and a steady performance behind the timbers from Dave Ryder
tested to the full by some interesting deliveries restricted Selby to 176-9.
In reply Graham Casey (39) and Matthew Bentley (51) put on 82 for the first wicket
before the captain rifled a half tracker straight to point!
Steady contributions from John Orrell, Patrick Flannery and Rowan Bentley saw Tabs
close and it was left to Dave Ryder to hit the winning runs with 9 balls to spare.
A great victory.
Many thanks to the Ryders and Orrells for a fabulous
tea and to Richard Laver for a great cricket wicket and for scoring.
A good performance from the 1XI on Saturday v Castleford.
TABS put Castleford into bat, bowling them all out for 72 in 31 overs. N Kasana 3-5, O Riley 3-12, L Kilby 3-4. Two fabulous catches from Z Akhtar, captain T Kilby took a good catch. L Kilby 2 catches, and a caught behind from WK G Gibson.
Leaving C Stephenson (38) and G Gibson (30) to chase the runs in 21 overs.
Well done TABS

TABS U11 Pairs welcomed Whitkirk for the 2nd match between the 2 in a week.
The match itself was in the balance as TABS opening batsmen (Giaan Duggal and William Contreras) took to the field under some pretty heavy looking clouds that threatened to burst at any time.
The pair were able to put on a total of 17 without loss followed by an impressive 31-1 by Tom Pritchard and partner George Sturdy. Joe Young followed up in overs 9-12 with 17 runs of his own and a combined 21 with his partner Oliver Walsh. Dane Emmott 10-1 and James Gilman 18 without loss (including 2 fine 6’s) brought up a total of 312 which was always going to be a big ask for the visitors.
After some light refreshment and a hot tea for the Umpires, pace was adopted at both ends from Duggal and Gilman. In fairness to Whitkirk they had a real go at TABS from the off but our openers kept them reasonably quiet with 19 runs lost for 1 wicket in the first 4 overs.
George S and Oilver W stepped up for the next 4 overs keeping everyone guessing as to whether they would bowl pace or spin! Sturdy ended his spell with 13 runs for 1 wicket while Walsh impressed (with Pace) 10 runs for 2 wickets.
At this point Whitkirk were on 222. Emmott and Young providing spin at both ends resulted in a combined 27 runs lost for 2 wickets.
A consistent line and length from Contreras, giving away next to nothing with his 2 overs and it was left to Walsh and Gilman with an extra over each to finish the match off with another wicket a piece.
312 played 239 in what was as good a performance as we have seen from these lads this year.
The result keeps TABS on track for a potential league win and with 5 games to play it is very much in their own hands.
Thanks again to everyone who turned out and helped to get this game on.
Under 9 team took on local rivals Collingham on Sunday.
Fielding three debutants TABS acquitting themselves well against a strong team.
Running between wickets taking quick singles is improving along with fielding and
Collingham won quite comfortably 328- 235, however, all present
mentioned how TABS showed the right spirit and were improving with every
See you at training on Wednesday evening.
TABs U11’s completed the league double over their rivals Ouseburn last night.
Travelling to Ouseburn TABS won the toss and elected to bat first posting a first innings score of 121 for 7 on a wicket that was offering uneven bounce.
All batsmen playing their part contributing with runs especially Giaan who had to retire on 30.
Ouseburn started off badly suffering a run out in their 2nd over after some fantastic fielding by Ollie C… misfielding and lulling the batsmen into a false sense of security they decided to take his arm on for a second run, wrong move! 1st wicket down which
paved the way for the TABS bowling attack to start dismantling the Ouseburn batting line up.
Wickets fell at a regular basis including the star of Ouseburn who was caught by George at Mid off off the bowling of Will Contreras.
A mid innings revival by Ouseburn was soon halted as their big hitting batsman played back and swung across the line to a full straight ball from Dane trapping him in front LBW.
A late rally from the Ouseburn tail enders nearly saw them home to stop a rampant TABS team in their tracks but again excellent fielding from Ollie C saw the last batsman run out in the 16th over leaving Ouseburn 20 runs short of victory.
The U11’s are now 9 points ahead at the top of their group which will see them qualify for the league play offs for the second year.
TABS u17s are in the final of the Nicholas Priestley Cup, after a convincing win against Tadcaster Magnets.
Batting first TABS scored 170 for 3, and for 2 matches running openers Luke Kilby and George Gibson both retired, 50 and 53 respectively. Josh Powell (22) and Ethan Parsons (30*) pushed the score on with some good running between the wickets and plenty of boundaries.
TadMags came out all guns firing, after 4 overs they were 35 without loss, but some tight bowling and fielding TABS kept their run rate down. Jamie Butt retired on 50, a good knock including four 6’s and two 4’s.
Eventually TadMags finished on 132 for 6, a win for TABS by 38 runs. And so on to the final. A date for the diary, Thursday 9th July at Bardsey.
Next match on Monday away at Shadwell, meet at 6 for a 6.30 start, team tba.
Last night saw TABS U11 Pairs travel to Church Fenton to take on Whitkirk in the final of the John Leadley Trophy.
Having being dominant in this Cup run to date, moral was good and confidence was high.
TABS Captain for the match, Tom Pritchard, won the toss and opted to field hoping to keep the Whitkirk total as low as possible on a flat wicket offering very little bounce.
Opening up for TABS were Giaan Duggal and Will Contreras and it wasn’t too long until Will opened his account and ended his first 2 overs with 2 wickets for the loss of only 2 runs.
Wickets followed from Oliver Culloden, Alex Hall, Joe Young x 2 and Oliver Walsh leaving Will C to finish the innings with his 3rd wicket of the evening, TABS 8th (and arguably his Will’s best performance to date) leaving Whitkirk on a total of 237.
2 Balls in to TABS batting performance and they were a wicket down but Giaan & Will rallied to raise 18 Runs with the loss of 2 wickets.
Joe Y and Alex H added 11 more runs in the 5th-8th Overs with Oliver W and namesake Oliver Culloden adding a further 23 with the loss of only 1 wicket.
Finely poised only and 15 runs ahead going in to the final 4 overs Dane Emmott and Captain Tom Pritchard, closed out the game with a combined total of 26 runs for the loss of 3 wickets.
The boys totalling on 263 to Whitkirks 237 wasn’t without its edgy moments and emotions were running high throughout but all in all a very well deserved victory.
I’d like to thank all the boys for letting me Coach and Umpire throughout this Cup journey and to say how immensely proud I am of you all.
Thanks again to all those who came out to support us and help with the scoring.
