CUP DREAM GONE

The progress in rebuilding our First Xl has gone well but hopes of a Wynn Cup Final foundered on World Cup Final Sunday. The Cup's 20-20 format generated 27 boundaries for visitors Crossflatts, the league leaders. Mo Shannawaz began the blitz with 63 from 33 balls in a 100-run opening stand with Josh Brooksbank. The damaging innings came from Joe Greenwood, striking at over 200, with 56 from 25 balls in a 75-run partnership with Dom Bennett to reach a daunting 199-5, having been 124-4.

But Oakworth opener Joe Copperwaite hadn't given in and he got our chase off to a great start with 68 from 35 balls. But when he fell at 96-5 our chase looked doomed. But teenager Harry Hollingsworth [31] and skipper Joel Gallagher [15] gave brief hope in a 40-run stand, but after Joel was caught, the chase fizzled out at 153-8. A good score but not enough to overall the target.


MOVE OVER JORDAN

Embsay lls felt the growing power and expertise from attacking opening batsman Bradley Powell. The 16-year old rattled up 120 in the Second Xl successful chase of 243 set by the Shires Lane boys. It was a much needed contribution after Embsay's Alan Pickles turned back the clock with 101, aided and abetted by the debut of a new star in the making, Archie Phillipson. The 12 year-old County squad player showed patience and maturity well beyond his years to receive equal plaudits on leaving the field. The future is bright.

POWELL JAMBOREE

Saturday 22nd June was highlighted with  39 for Jordan v Haworth Road in a hi-scoring loss. With the second Xl, Dad Steve stroked 57no whilst nephew James added 24. Then younger son Bradley got in on the act with 59 to eject Gargrave from the Cowling Cup on Sunday. But Sunday also gave a stage to master-blaster Jordan with 54 to overwhelm Cononley in 16 balls [7 sixes & 2 fours]. #powellmaniarulesok

JORDAN BLASTS OAKS TO QF

Having lost the league match by 48 runs at Cowling on Saturday, Oakworth bounced back in the Wynn Cup 20-20 with a blast from Jordan Powell. From 41-4 Jordan's 9 sixes and a four carried us to 120-5 with 34 balls in hand after Cowling's 116-8!! Earlier Harry Hollingsworth had excelled with the ball taking 3-8 in 4 very tidy overs. A further surprise came when learning that the next opponents would be Division Two Cononley, who defeated Embsay.

YOUNG GUNS CUP PROGRESS

Denholme were bowled out for just 76 in the Cowling Cup. Subhaan Ahmed's leggies stood out with 3 for 1 and there was a couple for veteran Mike Davison. In-form Bradley Powell 42no and Lucas Keslinke 26 guided us to 78-2 in only 9.2 overs. Roll on Gargrave!

BILLY's FORM NOT QUITE ENOUGH

Skipper Joel Gallagher added another 82 runs to his 99 of last week in a decent Oaks total of 214. This week Joe Copperwaite [38] found form and Jack Davison and Jordan Powell again featured. With the ball Ellis Marshall was again frugal with 1-32 from his 12 overs and Tom Fothergill was excellent with 3-30 from his 12. When the pressure was on Jack Ellis too found the timbers, but in combination we struggled to evict Mohammed Adil, whose 56 proved the match-winning effort for Congs at 218-8 with just 9 balls remaining.

SECONDS EDGE BRADLEY IN THRILLER

The "Coxy Cut" gained  notoriety as the scores were level in the Bradley vs Oakworth 2nds Fixture, with Oakworth's last pair at the wicket. With fielders clustered around him Steve Cox cut the ball through the field to claim the points for Oakworth in a ding-dong low-scoring match on a pitch of very variable bounce.  Oaks attack had shone with 4 wickets for Bradley Powell and a terrific 3-8 [5 overs] from Jake Keslinke. Seasoned Jon Crossley pitched in with a brace and despite 27 from veteran Neil Andrews, Bradley were all out for 115. Any thoughts of an easy victory after Bradley Powell's opening 27, were soon dispelled with rapid blasts from Vince Grant [4-39] and George Bell [2-10] which left Oaks at 48-6. Skipper Mike Scarborough [36] and Steve Powell [32] carried the tally on to 101-7. When Steve fell at 112-8, 4 were still needed. A vital 2 from Keith Gilert brought Oaks nearer but he was out to a stunning catch to leave Oaks at 115-9. The rest is history!

RECORD SCORE SMASHES LEADERS

The boys are getting their act together, the result at Crossflatts a forgotten distant memory. The Skipper Joe Gallagher was robbed of a maiden century with an lbw decision but his 99 led the most spirited match result for many a long year, He was backed by a superb 97 from form man Rob Hollingsworth before the salt was fully rubbed in to league leaders Foulridge by Jordan [58], 16 year-old Lucas [53no] and Jack D [42]. the result a club record league score of 407-7. The job was finished off by 15 year-old Ellis Marshall with 5-76. #Therollbegins

FIRST BREAK DUCK WITH WIN OVER CHAMPS

A cracking score of 259-7 from Oaks featured a typically imperious knock from Jordan Powell 104 including 12 sixes and just four 4s, backed up by 58no from Jack Davison. Rick Cavender smashed 3 sixes to rack up 27no at the end. Aziz Iqbal and Imran Akhtar both made half-centuries but Harry Hollingsworth 3-26 [12 overs] and James Lee 4-60 held them to 242, 17 short of Oaks tally.

The 2nd Xl posted 147-9 at Skipton CI with youngsters Bradley Powell 46 and James Powell 33 leading the way, but held in check by Rob Cockell 4-41. Cockell and Martin Cisnall carried CI to victory with just 3 wickets down,


CRUSHED AT THE 'FLATTS

As the only match to go ahead on a day of mixed weather, Oakworth's visit to Crossflatts provided a tough entree for 2019. The line-up included four juniors; Ellis, Harry, Lucas and Bradley.  Batting first, wickets tumbled as many found poor shots were heavily punished, particularly by Alex Bradbury who grabbed 6-21. Harry Hollingsworth top-scored with 8 in Oaks fourth-worst team tally of just 42. The Flatts needed just 33 balls to knock off the runs with Joe Greenwood on 30.

JEFF's INNINGS COMES TO AN END

Oakworth CC is sad to report the death of one of its most prolific cricketers. Jeff Moor, who had suffered from bowel cancer. Jeff was Oakworth' top-rated bowler of the 1976-1991 period, who passed away today. The club sends its condolences to his family. The funeral will be held at Oakworth Crematorium on Friday 5th April at 11:30am, and afterwards at The Fleece Inn.

GOODBYE PAUL

Neither bowled. The North side won by 3 wickets. Scorecard Keep up the good work boys.

WHITE ROSE JAMES

Oakworth CC is very proud to see another one of its junior players has been selected for the County squad.

Long overdue, its James Powell after top performances for and against Regional sides and Durham County, James has finally been welcomed into the White Rose under-13s set-up.

This weekend he rattled off 98 not out for West Yorkshire against South Yorkshire. Amazing James!



HISTORIC TREBLE

Steeton u-9s, Great Horton Church u-13s and Bradford & Bingley u17s all played and succumbed to Oakworth equivalents at the second Grand Finals day at Skipton CC. Our three teams had all reached the Finals and all three emerged winners on 30th June.

First up, the under-9s Final had Steeton posting 231-13, a real score of 96-13 as their batsmen picked up the runs at the expense of their wickets. Our batsmen were more circumspect and lost just 4 wickets and picked up 243-4 [real 63-4] to capture the Pairs Cup for their first time by 12 runs. Man-of-the-match was Haroon Nazam who took 4 of the Steeton wickets.

The under-13s Final was eagerly awaited and again we batted second. Great Horton Church were limited to 72 all out by our excellent bowling from Stan Lloyd and Elis Jones, who each picked up 3 scalps. All 6 bowlers used picked up at least 1 wicket. Top batsman for the Bradford side was UAJCA Taverner's u12 captain Hamza Saeed with 28. Joint men of the match were Jake Keslinke [25] and James Powell [21no].

Finally Bradford & Bingley were contained again by our bowlers at 92 all out. Ellis Marshall was the pick of the Oakworth attack with 3-7 from 5 overs. We reached 50-1 and looked to be cruising towards a third victory but the Bees still had a sting in their tail and they hot back to get us at 78-8.  The Bingley attack found its range and Reece Cockshott's 6-31 led them closer. We did though run out winners at 93-8 thanks to late order runs from Harry Hollingsworth and Subhaan Ahmed, to achieve the historic treble, ie the first club to win 3 Cup Finals in the same year.  Cockshott was a deserved winner of the Man-of-the-match.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


SHARKS MAKE IT A TRIPLE CUP DAY!

Oakworth Sharks have reached the three Skipton Cup Finals on the 2nd UAJCA Grand Finals Day on Sunday 30th June. Our Festival-winning under-13s have reached their Final [12noon] with a semi-final win over Embsay, and then the under-17s comfortably overcame Great Horton Church to also claim their place on the day. The triple was completed by the under-9 semi-final with Sutton and our boys & girl came out the winners by 46 runs make it a triple day. #herewecomeskipton


U13s SHARKS IN SEMI-FINAL

Having lost their unbeaten record in the league to Earby, the Sharks again travelled to the Applegarth to take on the home side in the Hindle Cup QF. Leo Garner held the Earby innings together with 25 no and some tail-wagging from no 8 Niall Sagar 19 no carried Earby to 78-6 after their 20 overs.  Jacob Davies showed his undoubted class and picked off 3-9 in his 3 overs. In the chase, opener James Powell retired on 28 no and with 12 from Charlie Jackson and a satisfying 18 no from Elis Jones, the Sharks bit the bullet and ran out winners by 6 wickets with 11 balls to spare. In the semi-final on 17th June we will travel to Embsay to compete for a place in the Final on 30th June.


SKIPTON SEEN OFF IN 13s CUP

Retirement scores for Jake, James and Jacob S along with 20 from Elis set up a 125 score for Sharks under-13s in the Hindle Cup 1st round. Elis added 3 scalps to his mounting career total with a brace for Stan the man. Only no 8 Will Caygill troubled our attack with 25 as Skipton were bowled out in 19 overs for 64. Round 2 sees a trip to reigning Champions Earby. Tasty.


NINES FLYING HIGH

Following successive victories against Harden and Steeton, Sharks u-9s sit proudly at the top of the UAJCA ladder on 9 points. They are joined by reigning Champions Earby, but Sharks are ahead on run-rate. The bowlers have captured 22 wickets, whilst the batsmen have scored 208 runs for the loss of only 9 wickets.


THIRTEENS  POST 150

Oakworth CC four 'district' players Jake, James, Chaz and Jacob S all found early top form to hit retirement scores. Throw in another 20 from Jacob D and hey presto you have 150-2 against neighbours Oxenhope. Max Williams picked off 2 wickets but the Oxenhope batsmen could not match our batting. They responded with 32-9 thanks to 3-fors to both Jacob D and Chaz. Another superb opener!


NINES START WITH BIG WIN

Oakworth CC under-9s came away from Sutton with an 86-run win after a terrific all-round performance. The batsmen showed admirable resolution and no-one lost their wicket, a superb achievement so early in the season. Leading the way was Harry Robinson with 18 runs from the 41 scored off the bat. Our 268-0 proved too much for Sutton who posted 182-7. Our bowlers were magnificent allowing only 1 run from the bat!! The other 13 were wides. Top bowler was Jack Godden with 2 for 1.
