Preview of the weekend’s game for Richmondshire Cricket Club teams

The 1st team expect to be unchanged for the home fixture against Norton on Saturday.

With Norton currently sitting at the bottom of the table, the hope is that the weather will allow a result and that Richmond can pick up some much needed points.

The 2nd team full of confidence after their recent run fests make the long journey to Whitby.

Young James Kelly misses the match due to illness and is replaced by Rob West, making a comeback from the back injury which has kept him out of the first team for a couple of weeks.

The 4th team are at home to Nunthorpe and the 5ths away to Haughton 2nds. Bothe will expect to be largely unchanged, bar the need for Saturday morning reshuffles.

On Sunday, the 3rd team play Wolviston 3rd XI, there could be some doubt about the match as in the past few weeks Wolviston have twice conceded matches as a result of not been able to field a team.

In midweek fixtures the 1sts had a good win at Marske as they began their defence of the Macmillan Cup. Highlight of the Richmond innings was a first half century for new professional Alston Bobb. Richmond made 121 for 9 in their 20 overs and despite an innings of 71 not out from
