Also this Sunday, Yorkshire will play Surrey in the ECB over 50s County Championship at the Al-Murad Stadium, Elsecar (1pm start). The bar is open from 12noon and refreshments are available.

We congratulate Doncaster Town on topping the T20 Blast Group Stage table, and so becoming the YCSPL representatives in the ECB Vitality T20 Blast area finals where they will play Sleaford in the area semi-final at Wollaton CC in Nottinghamshire on Sunday 7 August.
Play in the final group stage matchdays was spoiled by the rain, with five of the 12 games reaching no result, but in the games that were played, Barnsley Woolley Miners, Cawthorne, Cleethorpes and Doncaster Town qualified to go thorough to the YCSPL finals day at Elsecar CC on Sunday 14 August. The semi-final draw is:
Cawthorne v Doncaster Town
Barnsley Woolley Miners v Cleethorpes
Billy Oates Memorial Cup
In the semi-finals of the Billy Oates cup, Upper Haugh 3rds beat Stocksbridge 2nds by 23 runs. Upper Haugh reached 211-5 in their 40 overs, largely thanks to Andy Lintin, who hit an unbeaten 69 off 58 balls, sharing in an unbroken sixth-wicket stand of 88 with William Adams. Lintin starred with the ball too, taking 5-41 as Stocksbridge were bowled out for 188 on the last ball of their 40 overs.
The other semi-final, between Thorpe Hesley & High Green 2nds and holders Whitley Hall 3rds, had to be abandoned due to weather conditions after 19 overs, when Thorpe Hesley were 98-3. The game will be rearranged.
