Well done Darren and the team.
Could all junior trophies from last season be returned to Karen Price at nets tomorrow evening please?
The 3rd XI game at home to Pocklington has been called off because of the weather.
Unfortunately Whitkirk are unable to put a team out on Monday, so they have conceded the match. This was the final game of the season. As the table stands at the moment TABS u17′s should finish the season mid-table.
We’ve played some good cricket in good spirit, and although it can be tough at times getting 11 players, (exams etc) to turn out on a Monday evening, we’ve managed to field a side all the way through the season.
Thanks to Chris Stephenson who’s captained the side this season. He’s done a really good job, and we wish him well as he joins the senior ranks next season.
My thanks to all the parents who’ve supported the u17′s at home and away, to the tuck shop team, (which wouldn’t happen without Jayne Contreras – thanks Jayne), and of course the players who’ve been great to work with, especially those who’ve been called up at the last minute, hopefully that wasn’t too often.
And thanks to Dale Gibson for his assistance with the running of the u17′s.
Have a great summer, watch out for the presentation date, and winter nets will start in January!!!!!!

Good Luck to The U11 squad who play in the Cup Final at Saxton on Thursday. Let’s hope we keep the winning momentum.
COME ON TABS!!!!
Today at Pannal was an awesome performance and it was a pleasure to be involved with a team full of boys with ability, passion, determination, and discipline. We looked like a team and played like a team.
Beckwithshaw won the toss and put us into bat. We were delighted. Two under 12s, Kilby and Westmoreland got us to 47 in the 10th over before Kilby was out for an impressive 19, Westmoreland going on to make an excellent 32. The ideal start. Well done boys.
Powell (35 retired) and Riley (33no) both class acts then piled on the agony taking us to 135 for 2 in our 20 overs with some excellent shot making and running. We didn’t need W Morrison, but it is worth mentioning again his excellent 38no in the semi which got us here.
So some tough words between innings to prevent complacency and off we went. Beckwithshaw 19 for 6 off 7 overs when Riley (2 wickets) and Powell (3 wickets) withdrew from the attack. Bennett and Bates kept up the pressure with a wicket each and the Shaw were 29 for 8 in the 10th over. J Farrington was unlucky but Gilmore and E Morrison picked up a wicket each to finish things off. The Shaw all out for 75 in the 18th over.
We dropped a couple of catches and let a couple of runs go if I am being pedantic, but Powell and J Farrington also took good catches and then of course there was Youlden, excellent behind the stumps, 3 catches (although I thought I remembered 4) and the key first wicket run out to set the tone.
So a Cup double, we may well yet add the Wetherby League but we will see. As with the Wetherby Cup the win is not just for those who played in the final but for the whole squad who have contributed so much all season.
Finally a thank you to Gaby Morrison. Others have kindly helped but Gaby has been the main scorer this season and I am very grateful. Unfortunately she was medal less today as Nidderdale do not recognise scorers and was unable to cover the Wetherby final (when medals were given) as she was stranded at a drive in.
Great day today. Great support for the boys from parents and families. Thanks to Kelly Farrington for helping with the warm up.
Congratulations to all the squad, who can now call themselves Wetherby Under 13 cup winners 2014. This is a trophy it appears we have not won in at least the last 10 years.
We beat Collingham last night at Whitkirk. F Price won the toss and put Collingham into bat, Riley bowled the danger man for 0, R White in a man of the match performance destroyed the middle order taking 4 wickets and from then on Collingham’s young but determined team concentrated mainly on survival reaching 68 for 8 off 20 overs.
This was never going to be enough. Any complacency in the dressing room and suggestions of trying to win in 10 overs were silenced angrily by Kilby who demanded that the team play normally. He then strode to the crease and hit the first ball for six! 2 more later followed before he retired on 30. We made 72 for 6 off 13 overs in the end to win.
Well Done all.
