By Brian Sanderson,

Earlier in the week Tony Hutton had found out that there was a two day match at Weetwood between Yorshire Academy and Durham Academy starting Thursday.As I arrived Tony was there with Jenny watching Yorshire batting in seems it started at 10.30 also they had played for two hours yesterday  after the rain. Yorkshire had scored 79 for 4 and Durham declared at 16 for 0.So today was a 110 over day.
One of the Yorkshire openers was Barny Gibson who was out for 15 in 32 minutes.
This is the photograph of Barny  Gibson coming off the field and Mosun going in to bat.By lunchtime after 40 overs Yorshire  were 90 for 5 and struggling against some steady bowling .I went home for lunch and on the way back I took the photograph, of the enterence to Weetwood ,at the begin of the blog showing the beautiful purple flowers.

It was left to Ryan Gibson to push the score on after lunch which he did scoring 62 in 90 balls.This enabled Yorkshire to get to a total of 180 which give them a lend of 243.
This is a photograph of Ryan Gibson going out  to field.
During the break in the innings this is a photograph of Yorkshire getting ready to do their drills.Yorkshire opened the bowling with Wainman who is a left arm bowler. He has had back problems but today he took the first three wickets  for seven runs in five overs.Just before tea Warner accidently bowled a beamer at Mc Clure and the next ball he bowled him.This seem to upset the Durham players.

After tea  Durham continued to struggle with Logan taking 4 for 3 in 3.3 overs .Durham finishing on 97 all out in 43.3 overs so Yorkshire winning by 146 runs.A good victory and it was good to be watching a winning Yorkshire side.
